Prince Harry‘s hair has been a hot topic of conversation after he appeared with his wife Meghan Markle for their sit-down with Oprah.
Many have been asking questions about what was going on with Harry’s hair. The Blast spoke to Jacques Abrahamian, MPAS Hair Transplant Specialist, who owns the LA FUE Hair Clinic. The hair restoration specialist has not worked with Harry personally but offered his opinion.
Jacques tells The Blast, “Ever since Oprah’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Sunday, March 7th, viewers couldn’t stop commenting on the thinning hairline and crown of Prince Harry. It was blamed on anything from stress to genetics. Researchers have found that over 50% of men by the age 35 show some sign of hair loss.”
He added, “What may cause Prince Harry’s hair loss? In men, genetics is the number one factor. If you look at Prince Harry’s father Prince Charles, you will see where he inherited his hair loss genes. But of course, Prince Charles’s hair-loss is far more advanced due to the age difference. If Prince Harry does not seek early intervention, it is highly likely that more hair thinning may be seen in the next 5 to 10 years, which would be much more difficult to treat. On average, it takes men 5 years from when they start noticing hair loss, to when they seek some sort of help.”
The expert added, “Some of the options Prince Harry has to treat Androgenic Alopecia, also known as Male Pattern Baldness, include hair restoration via the Follicular Unit Extraction method also known as “FUE” for short, oral and topical medications such as Finasteride, Minoxidil, and more recently less invasive treatments which include PRP and Stem Cell Therapy. Daily multivitamins for “Hair, Skin and Nails”, as well as organic-based, sulfate-free shampoos can also help with hair loss.”
He ended, “Prince Harry is in a perfect position, with where he is in his hair loss journey, to take action and treat his loss with the treatments mentioned above, where he can greatly reverse his thinning to sport a much fuller head of hair.”
