It’s something that most women have to deal with at some point but as soon as a man sheds some hair after dyeing it, someone must pay. British actor Danny Dyer went for the carrot top look in his role in All in the Game but threatened to sue Channel 4 when his hair soon started falling out.
Dyer said his hair started falling out in patches and blamed the ginger hair dye. The now 31-year-old believed Channel 4 was responsible for his rapid hair loss, but, could it possibly just be that the Severance star was having a hard time facing up to the fact he was starting to experience male pattern baldness like many men his age? At the time, Dyer was adamant the colouring was the cause of his sudden hair loss.
“I couldn’t get it out of my hair. It took me six months. I couldn’t f***ing get it out. I kept washing it,” he said. “I think I started losing my wig after that. I’m receding a bit but it only started after I dyed it. If the worst comes to the worst, I’ll sue. It’s down to Channel 4 I’m losing my [hair].”
There’s been no legal action taken against the baldness wielding Channel 4 bosses so presumably Dyer had a change of heart. While dyes can damage the hair quality and make it liable to breakage, it’s only surface hair loss and doesn’t affect the follicles to cause a cessation in hair growth.
He may have thought he only started to recede after the incident but looks to us as though his hair was starting to thin in 2007. Thinning hair and a receding hairline are the first signs of hair loss and warn a man that if he wants to maintain his crowning glory he’ll need to high tail it to a hair loss specialist. It’s a multi-factorial condition but generally, hair loss in men in the result of a genetic disposition that requires individually tailored and administered hair loss treatments to stabilise the loss and reverse the effects.
The short style he sports these days make his widow’s peak more prominent but one can only hope he’s addressing the condition which caused him so much grief.
