Believe us, we would love to reveal the name of a giant celebrity who regularly takes Propecia. Well… it’s not exactly widely broadcast which big, glorious stars are on the Propecia hair restoration program. But, Fear not! Just stick with us; we promise we’ll do our best to reveal a huge star who is known to have taken the little pill at the end of this article. Cross our hearts.
Celebrities and male pattern baldness
Celebrities’ fortunes are in their faces. They have to keep themselves slim, groomed, clear skinned and thick haired if they want their careers to endure.
Celebrities have had to maintain a particular image ever since the concept of celebrity existed. However, in the day of media blitzes and regular people pulling out camera phones and taking candid shots of stars and posting them on Instagram all within the same second, stars have to really be on their toes when it comes to their appearance.
One thing the public really wants to see but the stars really, really want to conceal? Yup — thinning hair.
It may not be a big deal for the normal folk, but former “People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive” simply can’t afford to lose their hair. There are several options for men who are beginning to thin slightly on top: hair transplants, topical treatments, hats… but only one provides proven hair growth and consistent results. Propecia.
Clinical tests showed that 90% of subjects who were taking Propecia for the 5 year trial period reported noticing either that their hair loss stopped, or that they had noticeably grown more hair. Propecia works by preventing an enzyme in the body from turning testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, which is the primary reason for male pattern baldness. Dihydrotestosterone causes hair follicles on the scalp to diminish, and prevents blood flow and oxygen from reaching the area, causing the follicles to eventually shrink to the point of no longer being able to produce hair. If taken early enough, Propecia can actually help to restore follicles and facilitate hair growth. Propecia works best on mild to moderate hair loss.
Entertainment industry insiders use Propecia because it facilitates hair growth, as opposed to a surgical treatment that shuffles hair around from different parts of the head, or a clinic that sells dubious treatments which promise to work after six solid months of regular visits. Moreover, which star would be comfortable being photographed walking out of a known hair restoration center? None that we can think of. Stars certainly live lives of extreme glamour and luxury, but many of them have their privileges on very hard terms.
Speaking of hard terms, we’re ready to reveal the bona fide celebrity who is known to have taken Propecia for male pattern baldness. Ready? Okay it’s… [drum roll] Wayne Rooney! Yes, Wayne Rooney has taken Propecia. Yes, of course he’s a celebrity. If you live in Manchester, he’s a huge celebrity, okay? Don’t you dare judge us.
