When Wayne Rooney first had his hair transplant we likened it to lipstick on a pig. But pleasantly surprised by the results, it seemed to be worth every penny of the reported £30,000 he spent. For a man who probably earns that in an afternoon, it was a relative bargain to reinstate a youthful hairline. But what has happened to it? The recent England Euros matches have only highlighted the reemergence of his thinning thatch. Is this the result of too many headers or does this happen to hair transplants after time? TheChicGeek decided to investigate:
Jonny Harris, Managing Director of The Belgravia Centre www.belgraviacentre.com and Hair Loss Expert says “For those who act early enough, there is no need to have a hair transplant in the first place. There are a number of medically proven preventative/regrowth treatments and hair growth boosters that will in most cases stop hair loss. If Rooney would have used the correct treatments when he started to lose his hair, it would never have thinned in the first place.
"These same treatments need to be used following a hair transplant in order to maintain the ‘old’ hair (which is the hair that was still present before the transplant). Those who do not use the correct treatments after a hair transplant might, as in the case of Rooney, lose this ‘old’ hair which will either create bald patches or general thinning. It is likely that the hair Rooney still had is the hair that is still shedding, leading to a thinner appearance in the transplanted area.”
So, there you have it. Rooney hasn’t been taking his supplements or using the correct products. Looking more Bobby Charlton than David Beckham, we just hope he’s reading this after the money he’s spent.
