It’s fair to say that Happy Mondays singer and former hell-raiser, Shaun Ryder has put his body through a lot.

The chart-topping Mancunian’s hard-partying ways in the 1990s and early 2000s, including crack and heroin addiction, were documented in the film 24 Hour Party People.

Despite the known effects of this type of lifestyle on hair loss, his closely-cropped crew cut remained largely intact, with the exception of a bit of thinning on top, most likely due to Male Pattern Baldness, during this time.

However, after recent health problems and surgery, the now 56 year old is having his melon well and truly twisted after going completely bald, from head to toe.

Hip operation and thyroid problems

Shaun Ryder Hair Loss Alopecia

According to an article in the New Statesman, Shaun Ryder has been experiencing “extreme hair loss” due to thyroid problems. In the April 2019 interview he advised he has lost all his hair from his scalp, face and entire body.

Although he blames this on thyroid problems, which started before the recent hip operation he had soon after this interview and has left him still on crutches, hair loss from illnesses, surgery or medication does not generally affect the body.

Shock or trauma to the body, such as an underlying illness or emotional upset, can trigger two separate types of hair loss; one is Telogen Effluvium which causes diffusely thinning hair all over the scalp and can develop in cases of thyroid conditions, the other is Alopecia Areata.

Generally Telogen Effluvium takes around three months to present as intense shedding and up to six months to resolve itself naturally, whereas Alopecia Areata can be more immediate in its onset. Its duration also depends on the particular strain that develops.

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disorder which disrupts the hair growth cycle resulting in sudden hair loss; this can be anything from rounded bald spots on the scalp only, to becoming completely hairless – as is the case with the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here runner-up.

When it is this extensive, it is known as Alopecia Universalis – the most severe alopecia phenotype.

Treated with scalp injections

Whilst Alopecia Areata treatment is often effective for the milder, scalp-only patchy hair loss version, there are currently no reliable hair regrowth treatments for Universalis.

He mentioned having alopecia treatment via scalp injections in his New Statesman interview, which is likely to be steroid injections.

“I reckon all my hair will start ­coming back in the next three months or so when we get the treatment levels sorted,” Ryder told The Sunday People, joking, “Hobbling about on me crutches with ­alopecia – it’s not a great rock ’n’ roll image is it?”

If the hair loss Shaun Ryder has been experiencing is Alopecia Universalis, he is unlikely to regrow hair within the next three months.

Belgravia senior hair loss specialist, Leonora Doclis, advises: “His symptoms, and indeed his photos, clearly indicate Alopecia Universalis. This is an autoimmune condition as much as a thyroid problem.

Alopecia Universalis hairloss is so extensive and advanced that regrowth is unlikely, or, should it resume naturally, it can take a long time – certainly longer than a few months. That said, there have been a few cases of this condition rectifying itself within a few months, however, it is uncommon.

Steroid injections may stimulate regrowth within a short period of time but, the regrowth does not seem to last and frequent steroid injections are generally not recommended due to high risk of side effects”.

Should Shaun Ryder turn out to have Alopecia Universalis and find that his hair does not grow back, he will no doubt be pleased to hear about the number of potential treatments currently in development. Most are from a suite of drugs known as JAK inhibitors and the first – whichever they may be – are thought to be heading towards a release in the next three years, MHRA-licensing and FDA-approvals pending.

Name: Scott

Question: I’ve been losing hair around my hairline I think it might be MPB but is it still have MPB if you don’t have a bald spot at the back? My crown is fine, it’s just my hairline that’s receding.

Answer: Hi, Scott. Yes, it is absolutely possible for Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) to present in this way.

If you have a receding hairline but not a thinning crown, it may be the case that your crown and vertex – the top of the scalp – are taking longer to show the effects of follicular miniaturisation.

Male Pattern Hair Loss is a permanent, progressive genetic condition whereby follicles located across the entire vertex – from hairline and temples to crown – are gradually ravaged by the effects of the hormone DHT, the shedding in these affected areas may not all happen simultaneously.

It is quite normal to develop frontal hairloss without having a thinning crown as well – or vice versa – as well as an overall drop in the volume of your hair. Furthermore, it is likely that, without intervention, over time you may also develop thinning hair on top.

Eventually this can lead to baldness if nature is left to take its course, though the rate at which this happens varies from person to person and there are many factors, both genetic and lifestyle-related, which can influence this. Continues below…

There are clinically-proven hair loss solutions for Male Pattern Baldness, with two MHRA-licensed and FDA-approved medications available. One is topical high strength minoxidil – this can be particularly useful when treating a receding hairline. This is because the other option, a one-a-day tablet – finasteride 1mg – has been shown to inhibit the formation of DHT but its’ effects on regrowing hair on the hairline specifically have not been formally established.

Generally male hair loss treatment courses are built around a core of one or both of these authorised medications in the appropriate formulations for each individual’s needs and suitability. Additional hair growth supporting products can be used too, including FDA-cleared home-use low level laser therapy devices to promote hair regrowth and assist in preventing hair loss, and highly-targeted food supplements such as Hair Vitalics for Men.

Another potential reason you may have a receding hairline without any other signs of hair loss concerns your choice of hairstyle.

Whilst often primarily thought of as something that only affects women, there are various men’s hairstyles that can also cause hair loss if worn regularly. These are any tight styles that place undue stress and tension on the hair follicles, such as braids, cornrows, man buns and plaited dreadlocks.

These, when worn frequently, can stress and weaken the hair follicles around the source of the tension and particularly around the hairline and temples, resulting in hair loss from a condition known as Traction Alopecia.

If the hair loss is not so extreme that the skin has taken on a smooth, shiny bald look, Traction Alopecia treatment can be possible.

A consultation with a dedicated hair loss specialist may be best to help you determine the precise cause of your receding, and to give you tailored suggestions for treatments if required.

Aclaris Therapeutics has announced the six-month findings from its Phase 2 open-label clinical trial into ATI-502 – a topical hair loss solution being tested as a potential treatment for Male Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Hair Loss.

The physician-led biopharma released its latest update on this investigational JAK inhibitor drug in a press release dated 17th June 2019. It noted that this data is from the trial’s mid-point, with 12-month findings due in the next six months, by the end of 2019.

ATI-502 is one of the company’s leading hopes and is currently being fast-tracked by the FDA for use as a potential treatment for autoimmune hair loss caused by Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis.

Women’s hair loss improved the most

This six month update advised the trial has so far been evaluating men and women aged between 18 and 50 years old, with genetic hair loss.

Hair Loss Research Study

Each of the 23 participants who completed the full six months applied topical ATI-502 to their scalp twice per day for 26 weeks. The precise dosages were not revealed.

Of these 23 test subjects, 20 (14 of whom were male, 6 of whom were female) had “evaluable hair counts”, and 22 of them (15 male, 7 female) recorded investigator global assessment (IGA) and subject self-assessment (SSA) scores.

The mid-point data showed an overall hair count increase of 8.6 hairs/cm2 (non-vellus) at the six month mark. Whilst the male participants showed an overall increase of 5.6 hairs/cm2, the women saw almost three times that, with an overall increase recorded as 15.3 hairs/cm2.

Results from the IGA and SSA components involved subjects with positive hair growth increases being allocated a score of +1 for a slight increase, +2 for a moderate increase, or +3 for greatly increased hair growth.

Aclaris say investigators rated 73% of the participants (16/22) as “experiencing increased hair growth”, however, 82% (18/22) of the test subjects self-assessed themselves as such.

ATI-502 was found to be well-tolerated in this small-scale study as no treatment-related serious adverse events were recorded. One unrelated incidence of breast cancer was reported in week one and the affected patient withdrew immediately.

Subsequent trial may be female-focussed

According to Dr. Neal Walker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Aclaris, “This finding demonstrates that inhibiting a non-hormonal and inflammatory-mediated pathway may be an option for the treatment of AGA [Androgenetic Alopecia – male and female pattern hairloss].”

Further to this, Aclaris also advised that through recent formulation work, it “can achieve significantly higher topical concentrations of ATI-502”.

As such, Aclaris have advised that its next steps will involve initiating a double-blind, randomized, controlled Phase 2 dose-ranging clinical trial with higher concentrations of ATI-502.

It was also indicated that this trial, due to start in the first half of 2020, may potentially have a “female focus”.

Should ATI-502 make it through the relevant stages of development and be able to finally demonstrate sufficient safety, efficacy and tolerability that it is awarded the relevant licences and approvals from medical regulatory boards, such as the MHRA and FDA in the UK and USA, it will be the first significant breakthrough in this area in decades.

Currently the only MHRA-licensed and FDA-approved hair loss treatments for men and women are high strength minoxidil – a unisex topical hair loss solution – and finasteride 1mg – a one-a-day oral DHT-blocker for use by medically-suitable men only.

These clinically-proven treatments are already widely-used either on their own or in combination with hair growth supporting products such as low level laser therapy devices and highly-targeted food supplements such as Hair Vitalics, by both women looking to regrow their thinning hair and men hoping to prevent baldness.

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Max

Question: : Hello, I did a hair relaxer about 6 months ago and my scalp was severely burned (blisters formed with oozing). I began to notice hair loss at the vertex of my scalp as well as in my hairline and it has been rapidly thinning. Could this be due to the relaxer or is this more male pattern baldness? Both of my parents have a full head of hair but my maternal uncles/grandfather are bald. I am currently on propecia and minoxidil (it’s been 1.5 months and have not seen much results yet).

Male Hair Loss Relaxer Damaged Hair Chemical Trauma from relaxing Afro hair

Answer: Hi, Max. As your scalp was affected by this unpleasant reaction to the relaxer, it could lead to hair loss.

Chemical Trauma hair loss – the name for shedding caused by burns from a relaxing solution, as well as those caused by perming solutions and bleach – can present anywhere across the scalp, depending on the reaction you had.

If the chemical burn caused by your hair relaxer was severe, it may also leave scars across the scalp. In this instance, the burnt areas are unlikely to fully regrow hair and may result in areas of permanent baldness where the follicles have been destroyed. When this happens it is known as Cicatricial Alopecia or ‘scarring hair loss’.

Additionally, you may be experiencing hair breakage from over-processing. This is where weakened hair snaps along the shaft; it is separate to hair loss as it does not affect the follicle. It gives the hair a thin, frazzled look but can usually be dealt with via a haircut – to get rid of the damaged hair – and a course of suitable nourishing, strengthening conditioning treatments.

The signs of hair loss you mention – a thinning crown, vertex (along the top of the scalp) and receding hairline – are all symptomatic of Male Pattern Baldness, too.

If your doctor prescribed you oral finasteride 1mg (Propecia being one of the brand names for this drug), they must have already diagnosed you with Male Pattern Hair Loss as this medication is one of only two treatments – the other being high strength minoxidil – that are clinically-proven for this condition. Neither finasteride 1mg nor minoxidil are used for chemical burns or damaged hair from over-processing.

With regards to not seeing results from hair loss treatment yet, as you have only been using your products for one and a half months, this is normal. Although the timeline varies for everyone – with factors such as how advanced the hair loss was when treatment was started and whether the treatments are used properly and diligently, playing a part – it is usual to see some results from hair loss treatment within the first three-to-six months. This can range from stabilisation of shedding through to thicker, fuller hair and noticeable hair regrowth.

If you have had mild Male Pattern Hair Loss for a while, it is possible that the damage from the relaxer made this thinning more obvious in the last few months. Furthermore, it is entirely possible for both Male Pattern Baldness and Chemical Trauma, Cicatricial Alopecia and/or Hair Breakage to be present simultaneously.

As you can see, there are many variables here so we cannot give you a definitive answer without examining your scalp. I recommend you to visit a dermatologist or hair loss specialist for a consultation to determine the precise diagnosis – or diagnoses – and provide suitable treatment recommendations based on their findings and your medical profile.

The seemingly endless updates on the on-going development of JAK inhibitor treatments for various forms of hair loss can often steal the spotlight from some of the other innovations being developed in the field.

One of these is hair follicle regeneration, whereby the scalp is lightly wounded in order to induce hair regrowth, or ‘hair follicle neogenesis’.

Follica, Inc, one of the companies specialising in this area, has announced it plans to commence what is described in a press release as “a pivotal study” into its proprietory scalp micro-abrasion device for Male Pattern Baldness, at the end of 2019.

Improved hair count after three months

Follica male hair loss treatment system for creating new hair follicles

Follica, announced it had seen “positive interim data” from the ongoing safety and optimization study of its new device as a treatment for Male Pattern Hair Loss.

“In addition to being well tolerated and informing key treatment parameters, analysis of 20 male study participants with androgenetic alopecia showed that Follica’s approach achieved a visible and statistically significant improvement in non-vellus (visible) hair count after three months of treatment, compared to baseline. Additionally, blinded head-to-head bench testing of the proprietary Follica device has shown significant therapeutic advantages in scalp treatment versus commercially available skin disruption devices,” states the company’s 13th June press release.

The men studied in these trials – and those who are being enrolled for future research – were aged 18 to 40 years of age with moderate levels of hair loss. This is classified as a level III to IV on the Hamilton Norwood scale, suggesting that – as with the present clinically-proven hair loss treatments for men – Follica cannot be used to regrow hair in men who are already bald.

How Follica hair follicle regeneration works

Follica explains they way its device works as being designed to “induce an “embryonic window” in order to initiate the formation of new hair follicles from epithelial (skin) stem cells. This occurs through the use of its micro-abrasion device and what it describes as “a topical compound”.

Whether or not this ‘topical compound’ is high strength minoxidil – the only current topical hair loss treatment to be MHRA-licensed and FDA-approved for Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss – remains to be seen.

The original concept on which Follica technology is based was discovered by the University of Pennsylvania, USA, and has been licensed exclusively from them.

“The biology of wounding in humans is very complex, and our ability to translate its effects into new hair growth is sensitive to a range of treatment factors,” says Jason Bhardwaj, chief executive officer of Follica. “From years of clinical testing, we have optimized the dosing, frequency, and several other important parameters and translated these learnings into a unique and proprietary treatment. Based on this interim analysis and the results of three previously conducted studies, we are excited to move forward into a pivotal study at the end of 2019.”

Although still in development, this is certainly an interesting area of research and we will publish updates about this novel treatment option’s pipeline here on the Belgravia hair loss blog as more information becomes available.

In the meantime, anyone worried about losing their hair now would be best advised to contact a hair loss specialist for a consultation sooner rather than later; given Male Pattern Baldness is a permanent, progressive condition with no cure, but effective management options, it is advisable that anyone wanting to prevent baldness starts exploring their options as soon as they can in order to see the best possible results.

Name: Troy

Question: I’ve been using Regaine for years but just the bottle I’m currently using is a year out of date. These things seem to last for ages so that’s not that long right? Does that mean it’s still ok to use? I noticed more hair loss in the past couple of months so could that be the reason? It normally works well for me. I’m 23 btw with general MPB, no fin. Thanks.

Answer: Hi, Troy. No medication should be used if it is past its use-by or expiry date; this includes Regaine and any other hair loss treatment.

With specific regard to high strength minoxidil, the main reasons for not using this treatment when it is ‘out of date’ are:

  • a higher risk of side effects (such as skin irritation)
  • a lower chance of the drug being effective (after the expiry date the solution is likely to become increasingly weaker over time, so it may not work as well)
  • an increased risk of hair fall resuming (if the solution is weaker than it should be, its effects may be less effective – or even completely ineffective – and the likelihood of hair loss resuming increases)
hair loss treatment medication expiry date

Specialist hair loss clinics, including the dedicated pharmacies here at Belgravia, tend to only dispense medications to patients in three-to-six month batches at a time so the drugs and appropriate expiry dates align and their treatment is always ‘in date’. When men, or women, choose to purchase ‘over the counter’ hair loss products such as Regaine, there is no such supervision.

This is why it is important to be cautious and always check the expiry or use-by dates when these solutions are on special offer, especially on bulk deals such as ‘3 for 2’.

Some people may see these offers as a good chance to stock up, however, this may not be the case. For example, if the expiry date is two months away, there is no point in buying three months worth – or more – as by the third month these additional supplies would be out of date before it was even time to open them.

Furthermore, you should only ever use the medication in the specified dosage, either once or twice per day as detailed on the accompanying patient information leaflet.

Therefore, the additional product should be disposed of as it cannot be used either more frequently nor can you use larger amounts than specified (this will not make the minoxidil work any better or faster and may lead to increase risk of adverse events) in order to use it up before it expires.

It may be the case that this is why your Regaine is so far out of date, or you may have simply found an old product you had forgotten about; alternatively, if you purchased this recently and it is already out of date, you should make the retailer aware so they can issue you with a refund or replace it with a suitably-dated product.

If you did not buy the Male Pattern Hair Loss product from a reputable vendor we recommend you are sure to do this in future; the UK’s MHRA body has increased its campaigns promoting awareness of the dangers of buying medication – including hair loss treatments – online or from unusual stockists.

There is a big problem with fake medication being sold online – often not actually being what it claims to be on the labels, as well as real medication which has either expired, is faulty or has spoiled due to incorrect storage.

It is likely the increased shedding and thinning hair you are seeing is the result of your treatment being ineffective, especially if you have not had any problems with it until now. We recommend restarting your treatment as quickly as possible with a replacement solution in order to get your hair back on track, though it may take three months for everything to properly right itself, due to the natural timing of the hair growth cycle.

One other issue worth considering is whether your additional hair fall is coming from the top of your scalp or from the whole head. If you are losing hair from all over, it is likely to be due to a separate, additional hair loss condition.

Telogen Effluvium is a temporary issue which disrupts normal hair growth. It generally takes around three months for the diffuse shedding to present so – as it is now June – think back to any particularly stressful life events or health problems that may have started, or peaked, around March time.

As Telogen Effluvium can be active simultaneously alongside Male Pattern Baldness, it can make your genetic hair loss appear worse; it should correct itself within approximately six months as long as the underlying trigger has been dealt with. There are also Telogen Effluvium treatment options, that can be combined with an appropriate Male Pattern Hair Loss treatment course by trained specialists, if desired.

Hopefully you will find your hair growth is back to normal within the next three to six months but, if you would like a professional hair loss consultation before then to determine the exact issue at play, this can be arranged via our website, whether for an in-person assessment at one of our Central London hair clinics, or for a remote Online Consultation.
