Harry’s Hair Loss Hits The Headlines

prince harry hair loss bald patchPrince Harry was in the papers over the weekend after it emerged that his hair loss has progressed to become even more noticeable. The younger brother of Prince William, who also seems to be experiencing male pattern hair loss, has been seen out and about recently for a number of public appearances, with his thinning hair on show.

The ginger-haired son of Prince Charles, who has been on a working trip to America, seems to be rapidly shedding the hair atop his head, meaning that a bald patch could be just months away unless he takes action with a hair loss treatment plan.

A Professional Opinion

Jonny Harris, hair loss expert and Joint Managing Director of The Belgravia Centre, offered his thoughts on the matter, and has appeared in a number of newspapers over the weekend explaining the potential reason for Harry’s hair loss.

Speaking in the Mail Online and The Sunday Times newspapers, Harris explained that: “Harry may have very thin hair by the time he is 50. Prince William will be bald by the time he is 40, perhaps even by his mid-thirties.” His comments also appeared in The Daily Star and Daily Express newspapers, along with several other media outlets around the world.

If Harry wishes to prevent his hair from becoming more and more like his older brother’s in terms of its density, he would need to act quickly to prevent the need for a hair transplant. A medically approved treatment programme would ideally contain the only two medications proven for treating hair loss that have been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, the UK and US medical regulatory bodies.

Preventing Baldness

The first medication, Propecia, works by blocking dihydrotestosterone, the powerful androgen hormone that damages hair follicles atop the scalp, causing them to produce thin, wispy hair. The second medication, the topical treatment minoxidil, stimulates the growth of new, healthy hair in thinning areas. As such, the two treatments are highly complementary.

It’s important to get your hair loss diagnosed by a hair loss specialist, who can then recommend the optimum daily dose of minoxidil for your condition. Whilst Propecia comes in a standard daily dose, minoxidil can be varied up to Belgravia’s unique high strength minoxidil cream, which has produced excellent results even for stubborn cases of hair loss.

As part of a hair loss treatment programme that also contained a variety of hair growth boosters, such as the FDA cleared LaserComb, these two medications could potentially halt hair loss and regrow thinning hair for Harry. However, it’s important that he takes action promptly, as once areas become completely bald and shiny, they cannot be treated medically.
