In a previous blog, we discussed how the men in the British Royal Family have a tendency for baldness, noting that Prince Harry, then recently engaged, had started to develop signs of androgenetic alopecia. Recent press photos have shown that his bald patch is developing.
Prince Harry’s Hair Loss
Like his older brother Prince William and father, Prince Charles, 34-year-old Harry has typical signs of male pattern baldness. His hair loss is centred around his crown, though his hairline does not seem to be affected. Since plans for his wedding to Meghan Markle in 2017, Harry’s hair has progressed significantly. His crown area is now completely bare, extending to the back of his head.
Some tabloid papers have suggested that the stress of getting hitched and becoming a father may have contributed to his hair loss. However, the experts at Vinci Hair Clinic explain that the progression is to be expected with untreated androgenetic alopecia. It appears that Prince Harry is doing very little to treat or disguise his hair loss at the moment. This comes as quite a surprise, given that he famously teased Prince William about going bald. However, Vinci Hair Clinic’s experts say that he should consider getting advice now for the best chances of getting his hair back.
Beating Male Pattern Baldness
A good motto to bear in mind if you have pattern baldness and are thinking about hair restoration treatment is “the sooner, the better.” At the earlier stages of hair loss, medical solutions including finasteride, minoxidil, LLLT, PRP and mesotherapy can be very effective. A well-planned treatment program can stop further hair loss and stimulate hair regrowth. However, the only permanent solution for this condition is having FUT or FUE hair transplant surgery. Regardless of which technique is used, you need to have enough donor hair available to create a successful result with natural density. This presents more of a challenge if you have extensive hair loss but doesn’t mean that you have to give up hope of getting your hair back. Vinci Hair Clinic developed the Vinci Max procedure to combine the FUE and FUT surgical techniques to maximise graft availability.
