Henry Cavill Receding Hairline

For some men losing their hair, going bald and suffering from premature thinning hair is a sad fact of life and getting older. Balding celebrities have the same problem and hair issues also. Often we look at our Dads and sympathize with his thinning pate as we never expect our own hair to suffer a similar fate. Or at the very least thinning hair and a receding hair line is going to be years away right? So wrong, as for some unfortunate men ( and even women ) hair loss, balding and thinning hair can strike at very early ages.

Wayne Rooney Hair Transplant
If you are a balding celebrity like Soccer star Wayne Rooney you either put up with losing your hair in the public eye or you go out and fix it. Balding Wayne Rooney elected to fix it with a 30k hair transplant. He wasn’t shy about it either so kudos to Wayne.

I even remember a poor Indian kid at my school that cannot have been more than 16 years of age; already sporting a bald spot the size of saucer. This kind of premature hair loss is simply not cool when your whole adult life is yet to arrive. Growing up and looking hot and sexy for the ladies is hard enough without the trauma of losing your hair as a young man.

As a mere mortal suffering from thinning hair, balding or temple recession any young man faces difficult enough life challenges ahead. Some dudes have the right character, attitude and persona to accept their hair loss. Other men a have good physique and face shape and actually look quite good bald so the concern of losing their hair is far less for them.

However many young men feel that they look like complete slap heads, unattractive and insecure, robbed of their precious youth. They feel the need to seek out natural looking hair replacement systems ( syrups ) or attempt medication and hair transplants. Some young men will go to extreme lengths to get their hair ( and life ) restored. This is understandable as having great mens hair brings much confidence. These anxious feelings must be magnified many times over if you happen to be a balding celebrity.

Balding Celebrities, Celebs With Thinning Hair

So spare a thought for celebrities and superheroes. One might think from all the glossy magazines and celeb web sites that they are immune from experiencing hair loss. You always see celebrities with seemingly perfect hair; looking cool, smooth and groomed to perfection. What on Earth is their great hair secret you might ask? How do they get such awesome mens hairstyles; natural hair that behaves in the wind, does exactly as their hairbrush commands and hair that simply looks good 24/7?

Sometimes they just have great genes and were born with really cool hair that is easy to style. Actors like Zac Efron, Rob Lowe and Brad Pitt  and rockstars like Jon Bon Jovi and Kip Winger simply have big bouncy mens hairstyles that will go where you tell it to and their hair looks good, manageable and healthy all the time.

The rumor is that Poison frontman Bret Michaels and his bandana are more than just good friends. I guess its just a case of look what the cat dragged in. Most men would agree though that Bret still looks good for an old rockstar.

However you maybe surprised to learn that more than just a few high profile male celebrities have a little secret or not so little secret that they are hiding from us. This may or may not surprise you when I say that Brendan Fraser is bald, Ted Dansen is bald, John Travolta is bald, Matthew Mcconaughey was balding until he had it fixed. The list of balding celebs is long and distinguished.

Poison lead singer Bret Michaels has hair loss, rumor is that his bandana and rockstar hair now come as one. Enrique Iglesias is also a syrup wearer. ( toupee ) So even big celebrities are not immune to losing their hair. Jeremy Piven was balding until he also had it fixed up. As was playboy Calum Best who had a pretty good set of hair transplants. These balding celebrities are out there, either trying to keep a lid on it or desperately trying to fix or conceal their thinning hair.

Baldman V Slap Head Man : The Dawn of Rough Justice

Ok so celebs suffer from hair loss and thinning hair also which may offer the normal guys out there some much needed mental comfort. What about superheroes? I am pretty sure that Iron Man and Thor are still sporting their own hair ( Robert Downey Jr and Chris Hemsworth respectively ) However for the son of Krypton and heir of Wayne Industries, Superman and Batman ( Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne ) I cannot be so sure.

It would seem that this summers blockbuster titanic battle between Batman and Superman in the superhero movie Dawn of Justice has just as much to do with their struggle against receding and thinning hair. Batman actor Ben Affleck is very much a rumored toupee wearer. Or rather he wears a custom hair system which is a flash marketing term for a wig. In Hollywood there are far more balding celebrities than you might think.

A little too good to be true perhaps – You decide

Superman actor Henry Cavill has good hair on the whole but his hair is starting to recede slightly at the front. In normal life no big deal for sure but as Superman Man of Steel it totally sucks. As for Ben Affleck, no one is entirely sure just how bald he really is. In all probability he uses a hair system and concealer like Toppik to simply add volume and maintain his Hollywood style as he is only 43.

Henry Cavill has a receding hairline. All those super powers and abilities just can’t fix his thatch.

It would seem that even Kryptonite cannot save Superman Henry Cavill from a receding hairline. His hair loss is still actually fairly minor and if he wasn’t Superman nobody would give a hoot. However just as with balding celebrities the general public likes to know about balding superheroes also. Such is the intensity of celebrity life under the microscope. Particularly if your hairstyle has something to hide like Henry Cavill. I am sure his agent has mentioned it to him.

Dealing With Premature Male Hair Loss

So it is clear to see that balding celebrities are everywhere, as are balding superheroes. If you are a young man showing the first signs of premature hair loss then act as soon as possible. There are decent medications such as Minoxidil and Propecia that will slow the process and effective natural concealers that will hide it.

The hair loss medications and concealers such as Toppik often work very well together and you can still hang on to a cool hairstyle for some time longer, perhaps for years like some of these balding celebs. Remember the vast majority of people have no idea that so many balding celebrities have hair loss issues and they keep everyone guessing, hence so can you.

Hair Loss Medications for Men

Minoxidil can slow down hair loss and promote regrowth. Always consult your doctor before trying new medications in case of adverse reaction.

You Are Not Alone

While you may not be able to stop premature hair loss all together, it might become manageable this way. Keep to your prescribed Propecia and Minoxidil hair loss medication and remain upbeat and positive. The male hair loss industry is huge and massive sums of money are poured into treatment research and development. While there may not be a permanent solution to mens hair loss and thinning hair right now. In five or ten years anything is possible.

So hang in there and take some comfort and reassurance in the knowledge that even Batman and Superman and many balding celebrities suffer from hair loss, thinning and a receding hairline. They also feel and share your hair pain.
