Even before businessman Donald Trump became the President of the United States of America, his somewhat strange hairstyle often attracted attention.  Now that he is at the centre of attention every day, new speculations about his ‘do have been rolling in.

Trump’s Hair Loss Remedies

Anyone can see that there is something unusual about the US president’s hair – but what is it exactly? It has been claimed that Trump colours his own hair to hide the grey, resulting in his odd gingery-blonde hue and some say that he wears a toupee. It has also been reported that he uses the hair growth medication Propecia (finasteride) in an attempt to beat his hair loss. The biggest rumours though have been about whether the entrepreneur has had scalp reduction surgery.

What is Scalp Reduction Surgery?

During the 1980s, scalp reduction surgery was a popular approach to hair restoration. It involves locating an area of the scalp with healthy hair growth and stretching it to cover the areas of hair loss. It is a more invasive surgery than FUE and FUT hair transplants and requires a longer healing time than these more modern techniques. It also needs an extremely skilled and experienced hand to perform the procedure – as can be seen with Donald Trump’s hairstyles, a badly planned surgery can leave the patient with hair that doesn’t follow natural growth patterns.
