Do you watch movies and wonder how celebrities manage to keep their hair while everyone else around you is losing hair with each year that passes by?
Celebrities use several techniques to prevent hair loss, such as taking Finasteride, Minoxidil, and Hair Voske to combat the effects of DHT. Also, Rogaine and other tricks are used by celebrities to keep their hair looking good and flowing.
What do celebrities use for hair growth?
It’s worth mentioning that some celebrities embrace their baldness while others like Bruce Wilis no longer choose but only to embrace their lack of hair.
Celebrities like all of us are human and experience the same physical problems as you do. This includes hair loss.
One great way to encourage hair growth is to eat a healthy diet full of vitamins and nutrients. Hair follicles need a healthy blood supply packed with nutrients to cause lush hair growth.
Some celebrities use Rogaine, aka Minoxidil, to keep their hair in good shape. Rogaine is massaged into the scalp.
Rogaine has a stellar success rate at propagating hair growth and is widely used in celebrity circles as a go-to medication to promote and encourage hair follicles to sprout new hairs faster than usual.
How do celebrities keep their hair?
Some celebrities tackle the root cause and address the issue of DHT. DHT is the by-product of testosterone that leads to hair loss and male pattern baldness.
By taking Finasteride, the celebrity can prevent hair loss as Finasteride prevents DHT from attaching to the AR (androgen receptors), resulting in less to no hair loss.
It is reported but not verified that celebrities such as Bradley Cooper and even the young Justin Bieber use Finasteride to keep their hair.
If you are wondering about Kutchner, he is reported as not taking Finasteride but another drug called Dutasteride. This is confirmed.
Why did he choose Dutasteride vs Finasteride? Finasteride blocks 70% of DHT while Dutasteride blocks up to 90% of DHT, resulting in less hair loss.
Possibly the most famous user of Finasteride is the derided ex-president of the US, Donald Trump.
President Trump’s hair has always been the subject of ridicule with its signature coiffured wrap around all locks of hair.
But suitable for the ex-president, he has demonstrated his hair is all his and can withstand being tugged on national tv!
However, Finasteride is not always the go-to choice for some celebrities. Finasteride has side effects that some celebrities would find unacceptable.
The use of Rogaine or Minoxidil is a good option for many celebrities. Rogaine is a topical solution or hair mousse that is massaged into the scalp to encourage hair growth.
Rogaine or Minoxidil has a high success rate and is without side effects other than causing a lush head of hair.
Eating a diet high in vitamins and nutrients also boosts the hair follicles. There is a caveat! The better your diet, the less likely you will experience hair loss early.
If the celebrity is predisposed to hair loss from hereditary traits, keeping their hair becomes more challenging.
Of course, some celebrities go all in and have hair transplants. You would never know because hair transplants can be very discreet and completed in stages on an as-is basis if necessary.
It seems as if the key for celebrities to keep their hairlines is they take action as soon as they notice there is a problem and their hair is thinning.
How do actors prevent balding?
They prevent hair loss from the very start of their careers. It’s a fact that 50% of men will experience some hair loss in their lives.
If you want to keep your hair, take action. There are factors responsible for hair loss that can be addressed early in life.
Quitting smoking will help keep your hair growing. Smoking causes chemicals in your blood to affect your hair follicles and stop hair growth. Quitting smoking keeps blood flowing to all the important areas of your body, including your scalp.
Traction alopecia can be caused by keeping the same hairstyle. Switching hairstyles can help prevent traction alopecia and keep your hair where it should be.
Diet is an essential factor when it comes to maintaining your hair. Eat a healthy diet full of nutrients and vitamins. A poor diet can cause premature loss of hair.
Take care of your scalp. Frequent dyes on your hair and bleaching can cause hair breakage and eventually hair loss.
Use dyes and bleaches infrequently and give your hair a chance to recover after any hair treatments that affect your hair colour.
The key is to pay attention to your hair, and if you decide you are losing hair, seek help from a doctor to find out what is causing your hair loss. At that point, you can take action to prevent hair loss.
Can hair loss actually be reversed?
It depends on what is causing your hair to fall out. The first stage is to find out why your hair is falling, sometimes it can be drug-related, and once you stop taking the drug, your hair will start to grow again.
Traction alopecia is hair loss caused by friction from wearing a hairband or headphones or a bad hairdo. One that is causing the friction is removed. It is usual for hair to start growing again.
Alopecia is a different case, it’s an autoimmune response, and once the hair has fallen, you are left with a completely bald area. However, there are instances that even without treatment, the hair will grow back.
Male pattern baldness caused by DHT is a different kettle of fish to deal with. Male pattern baldness can be reversed, but you can stop the hair loss with a DHT blocker.
Of course, the ultimate in hair loss reversal is a hair transplant. And hair transplants are more common than you would expect among celebrities.
Famous football striker Wayne Rooney has had enormous success with his hair transplant, and he looks great.
