Prince Harry’s hair dilemma

POSTED: 26 March 2014

Our surgeon Asim Shahmalak has been quoted in the media previously on the subject of Prince Harry's hair loss.

The young royal - who celebrates his 30th birthday on September 15 later this year - is slowly losing the hair around his crown.

You can read Mr Shahmalak's earlier verdict here from an article which was published last year in the Daily Mail:

With Harry's 30th now just six months away, Mr Shahmalak suggests that if the royal wants to halt his hair loss, he really needs to act now.

The mistake many men with male pattern baldness make is to leave taking action too late. Delays make male pattern baldness far harder to treat.

It's still too early for Harry to require a hair transplant.

But he will need one soon if he does not start taking drugs like Propecia or clinically proven treatments Minoxidil, which will help him hang on to the hair that he has.

Failure to act will see Harry's hair loss accelerate like his brother William's.

Obviously there is no shame in hair loss.

But we know only too well at Crown Clinic how baldness - especially at the relatively young age of 30 - can seriously dent a man's confidence.

Hair treatments are one of the few cosmetic procedures open to men.

Celebrities like Wayne Rooney and the Crown Clinic's very own patient Christian Jessen have sent out a powerful message to the world that no stigma should be attached by men seeking treatment.

They have been very open about having hair transplants - and have been applauded for their actions.

Here's hoping that Prince Harry seeks help for his male pattern baldness. It would send a wonderful message to the world.

And it would mean he has a far greater chance of holding on to his hair than his big brother!
