Jon Hamm: One Mad Man’s Hair Loss

jon hamm don draper rolling stone receding hairlineHe’s best known for his leading role as Don Draper in Mad Men – the hit HBO show about a New York advertising agency in the 60’s that returns next month for a sixth season – and Jon Hamm found fame relatively late in his acting career, accepting the role of Draper when he was in his thirties. Gracing the cover of Rolling Stone this month, Hamm appeared to be showing the signs of hair loss at his temples.

The Golden Globe winning actor is probably experiencing the extremely common condition of male pattern hair loss, with 40% of men experiencing some degree of noticeable hair loss by the age of 35, and at 42 Hamm is doing well to only just be beginning to show some shedding.

 40% Men Thinning By Age 35

Male pattern hair loss is a genetic condition that comes about when the predisposition to baldness is inherited from the family tree. This predisposition expresses itself when hair follicles atop the scalp become sensitive to naturally occurring androgen DHT and start to shrink, leading them to produce fine, weaker hair.

If left untreated, pattern hair loss will gradually worsen over time, with the hairline receding, and often an all-over thinning of the hair. In order to prevent his hairline receding, Hamm could begin a hair loss treatment programme including a high strength minoxidil cream applied to his temples every evening, along with a liquid minoxidil formulation in the morning.

Hair Treatment Worth Advertising

Minoxidil is clinically proven, which means that the medical regulatory bodies in America and US, the FDA and the MHRA respectively, have cleared or licensed it for use as a hair loss medication. In our experience, the most effective hair loss treatment courses for men include both minoxidil and the only other clinically proven hair loss medication available, Propecia. Taken as an oral tablet, Propecia works by blocking DHT, and gives follicles the chance to recover and begin regrowing.

So, by adding these two medications to his daily routine, Jon would be well on the way to ensuring his trademark dark Don Draper locks stay firmly in place. As part of a treatment programme Hamm could also utilise the FDA cleared LaserComb, alongside a variety of other treatment boosters to ensure all-round hair health. From our nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics to relaxing clinical treatments at our centres, we leave no stone unturned in our quest to help our clients halt shedding and regrow their hairlines.
