If you follow us on social media, you’ll know that a small moment that happened recently in the House of Commons ended up sparking a fairly lively debate about attitudes to ageing and hair loss.
Michael Fabricant, the Conservative MP for Lichfield in Staffordshire, had risen during Prime Ministers’ Questions to ask Theresa May about the proposed expansion of Birmingham International Airport.
This is a weighty issue for people living in the Midlands, but unfortunately it wasn’t Government policy on air travel that grabbed the headlines. Those went to Huw Merriman and Kelly Tolhurst, the two MPs sitting directly behind Mr Fabricant who appeared to be debating the provenance of the senior MP’s hair.
Twitterati lip-readers claimed Mr Merriman told Ms Tolhurst their colleague was “definitely wearing a wig”, with the two barely concealing their amusement in the exchange.
Mr Fabricant, who has always been known for his flamboyant style, but has always been guarded about his hair – admitting only vaguely to ‘having had some work done in the follicular area’, responded by suggesting in an interview he gave later that had Mr Merriman remembered that PMQs was a televised event, the junior MP may have acted ‘in a more grown-up manner’.
You would have thought that might have been the end of it, but instead the exchange sparked an interesting, though brief, social media discussion about whether male hair loss was a natural part of ageing and whether men should therefore simply accept thinning and receding hair as part and parcel of life’s rich tapestry and grow old gracefully.
And the answer to that is, no – they shouldn’t.
We see no reason at all why any man should just look in the mirror and accept that losing their hair is a situation to be faced with stoic resignation to the fact that resistance is futile.
Yes, hair loss is in many cases a by-product of the passing years. It can also be accelerated or aggravated by stress, poor hair care, overheating and all sorts of other things.
More importantly, it can also be reversed.
We know very well that hair loss is something that can cause men and women extreme psychological distress. Our hair and how we wear it is such a fundamental part of our identity that losing it can trigger a crisis of confidence, loss of self-esteem and issues relating to poor body image.
So, although Huw Merriman and Kelly Tolhurst found humour in the ‘is-he-or-isn’t-he?’ question, there’s actually nothing remotely funny in starting to see noticeable changes in your hair.
Many people turn to over-the-counter products or even prescription medicine in an effort to slow hair loss or to thicken thinning hair. But the simple fact is that not only do they not work well, they can also contain some distinctly unpleasant ingredients that can cause some nasty side effects. These can include mild discomfort, full-blown allergic reaction and loss of sexual function or sex drive.
But why bother with them anyway when there are options around that can actually more significantly reverse hair loss?
Our BioGroHair® treatment for example uses only the finest natural ingredients to stimulate fast regrowth. We have patients who have undergone this treatment and seen amazing results within just eight weeks.
And if that sounds too good to be true, then you can head over the the relevant section of our website and see the results for yourself.
The programme works because it is ongoing through the application of specially-prepared products that work to provoke constant and ongoing growth. Unlike the results promised by the makers of branded synthetic products, the results of this easy to use formulas speak for themselves.
The results go far beyond the restoration of your hair and natural look – they also help to resolve those emotional issues that come with hair loss.
Whether Michael Fabricant wears a wig or not, only he and those closest to him really know. But it’s none of anyone else’s business anyway – in the end, all that matters is that every man should know that an option to restore hair growth exists.
