Is It Too Late for Prince William to Resolve His Hair Loss Problem?

The billions of people around the world watching and following with interest the fairytale-like wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton and then the birth of the future King George will have noted that Prince William is very much losing his hair as a result of 'Male Pattern Baldness' (MPB) and at a relatively young age too.

I too started to lose my hair at the young age of 21 and know only too well how devastating and traumatic it can be and the huge impact it has on ones self esteem and confidence.

There is now little to no chance that Prince William will ever resort to proven hair loss treatments like Minoxidil and Propecia, due to the fact his hair loss has gone too far and can no longer be salvaged in my opinion by proven treatments. The ship has sailed so to speak.

Obviously, his bride cares little about his hair loss and good for her. It was published only the other day how grey she is becoming, so I'm sure Kate has her own hair related issues to concern her without having to worry about Williams too. Kate's going Grey article

The Prince has no other alternative than to allow himself to bald gracefully even further now - despite the fact there are preventative hair loss treatments that actually work and if he had in fact started on then sooner he would have undoubtedly been able to prevent the process occurring so rapidly and certainly stopped the progression of hair loss - or at a bare minimum bought himself several more years of hair.

Justin Bieber actually publically called out Prince William only recently and went on the record to criticise England's Prince William over the fact he has been balding. Bieber just cannot seem to understand why anyone would let their hair go when there are products on the market to help fight MPB. The singer recently did an interview with the U.K.'s Rollercoaster where the topic of Prince William's hair came up.

"I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia. I don't know why he doesn't just get those things, those products. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?"

Coming from a kid who regularly favors camouflage and gold chains, I doubt Prince William will find it in him to be offended, especially since he seems perfectly content with his signature hair. According to one source though, Prince William and his once heavily-locked brother even joke around about the male balding patterns on the elder's head, which would suggest treatment will not be in the picture any time soon.

However it might well be worth Prince Harry getting proactive and in a timely manner with the preventative treatments due to the fact he too is at high risk of losing his hair and even showing the initial classic signs too as reported in a recent newspaper article here : Prince Harry is Thinning Too!

The first step for those of you who are open to discussing hair loss with your own GP is to seek their advice and see if they are willing to prescribe medication to help treat your loss. It is common for GP's to dismiss the issue of hair loss, so do not be too disheartened if this is the case with yours, as there is help out there.
