Belgium’s Prime Minister, Herman Van Rompuy, has been named the new President of the European Council. Van Rompuy, a Flemish Christian Democrat, said he accepts the job “with enthusiasm and conviction”. This new role may leave the Fleming less time for his other hobbies. As well as his political work, Van Rompuy is known in his own country for writing haikus in Flemish including such topics as hair loss. ‘Hair’ goes as follows: “Hair blows in the wind/After years there is still wind/Sadly no more hair.”
At 62 years of age, it is no surprise that hair loss plays on the politician’s mind. By this age, over two-thirds of men suffer from Male Pattern Baldness. This condition results from a genetic predisposition to the hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which attacks the hair follicles causing hair growth to slow and eventually stop altogether.
Today, there are two proven hair loss treatments (Minoxidil and Propecia) that can prevent further shedding and restore lost hair. These treatments have only become available over the last couple of decades, so may not have been available when Van Rompuy saw the first signs of hair loss (usually a receding hairline and thinning hair on the crown). If you are noticing a little less up top and would like to keep your hair thick and healthy looking, then you may want to consider a tailored hair loss treatment programme.
The Belgravia Centre has been treating male and female hair loss for several years and has an excellent reputation for providing the very best in hair restoration services. With a registered in-house pharmacy (the only one in a UK hair loss centre), Belgravia produces an exclusive range of Minoxidil treatments which can be used alongside Propecia, the single most effective solution for male hair loss. These treatments are complimented by a range of Hair Growth Booster products, which increase the efficacy of the Minoxidil and Propecia to deliver optimum levels of re-growth. To see how these individualised treatment programmes differ from other generic hair loss products, take a look at the large collection of Hair Loss Success Stories.
