Is Rooney's Hair Loss Increasing Post-Hair Transplant?

Rooney's hair at England Training Session The Belgravia Centre

With a two match ban preventing Wayne Rooney from playing in England’s opening matches at the Euro 2012 Championships, attention has once again shifted from his footballing skills to his changing hairline. Photographs taken during a team training session earlier this week show clear signs of thinning on the 26-year-old’s head in spite of the hair transplant procedure that he underwent last year.

Around a quarter of men the same age as Rooney will experience some hair loss, but few will have spent £30,000 on a particular treatment method.

Towards the end of the domestic football season, Rooney had taken to wearing his hair much longer than normal, leading many to speculate that the loss and receding hair line which had dogged the player for years had returned.

What is happening to his hair?

Rooney suffers from a common condition called Male Pattern Hair Loss. It's a condition that can be effectively prevented with the right combination of medically proven treatments and hair growth boosters, but unfortunately Rooney left it a little late and required a hair transplant.

Although the hair that is transplanted from the back and sides of the scalp to the top is not susceptible to further hair loss, the 'old hair' around those transplanted hairs will still be susceptible. We think that in Rooney's case, he has not been using sufficient maintenance treatments to ensure no further hair loss takes place, which is why his hair is appearing to continue to thin.
