Prince Harry’s hair loss is accelerating

Prince Harry has been in Europe for the opening of the Invictus Games in the Netherlands.
New pictures of him at the event show that his hair loss is accelerating.
The bald patch on his crown which first appeared a few years ago has grown noticeably.
And his hair is thinning markedly at the front.
Around 40% of men have experienced hair loss by the time they get to Harry’s age of 37.
The chances of this happening shoot up if you have a strong baldness gene in your family like Harry.
The Windsors’ family history of hair loss is evident in Harry’s grandfather (Prince Philip) and his father, Prince Charles.
There is also baldness on Harry’s mother’s side. Princess Diana’s father, Earl Spencer, also suffered from hair loss.
Prince Harry is around five years behind his older brother, Prince William, 39, who was going bald by his mid-20s whereas the younger sibling’s hair loss only kicked in when he was 30.
Now Harry is catching up his big brother fast.
However, it is not too late for Prince Harry to slow down or even reverse his thinning hair.
He could start by taking a proven hair loss medication such as Finasteride. This won’t grow any new hair but it should slow down or completely halt the rapid natural loss of Harry’s hair.
He could also have a hair transplant.
The most popular method for high profile patients such as Prince Harry is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method – chosen by 80% of Dr Asim Shahmalak’s patients at Crown Clinic.
The donor hair is removed individually from the back and sides of the scalp – limiting scarring.
High profile patients of Dr Shahmalak who chose FUE include the Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherd and the model Calum Best.
The other hair transplant method used at Crown Clinic is the more traditional method, FUT (follicular unit transplantation).
With FUT, all the donor hair is obtained by surgically removing a strip of skin from the scalp and then technicians extra the donor grafts under a microscope. FUT is not suitable for men who like to wear their hair short or shaved because the scarring is more noticeable than FUE. FUT would be suitable for a patient with Harry’s hair style.
The TV doctor Christian Jessen had two FUT hair transplants with Dr Shahmalak at Crown Clinic.
Harry has scaled down his royal duties and is filming a new series for Netflix about his new life in the States.
He could look years younger with a hair transplant and it is not too late for him to reverse his hair loss.
