Cheltenham trichologist Mark Blake offers hair loss advice to Prince William on hair loss

Prince WilliamA Cheltenham hairdresser has issued advice to men like Prince William, who begin to experience hair loss in their 20s.

Mark Blake, who co-owns Blushes hair salon and is also a trained trichologist, said there was a host of effective options available now that weren’t there in years past.

In an article on the Beauty4Media website, Mark explains that the first step was setting up a consultation with an expert, to correctly assess the patient’s problem, as there are around 50 different causes of hair loss.

He said: “I believe that if Prince William came to see me now, I could offer him alternatives to boost hair growth and even reverse his hair loss – I wish he’d give me a call, but it looks like he’s going for the same look as his Uncle Edward…unfortunately.”

Mark said a few options for young men like Prince William might include:


This is a topical lotion that slows down and can stop hair loss. I’m currently seeing excellent results on patients using this super high strength lotion. Patients simply have to apply the formula once a day before bed. In my view most 20-year old males should be using Minoxidil – why wait till you’ve lost it? Prevention is better.

Transplant Surgery

Hair transplant surgeons are also artists who can create your new hairstyle from scratch, so it’s really important to choose the right one as this hair will be with you for life. But the results are astoundingly good. I work closely with a whole host of transplant specialists and can refer the right surgeon for the job, be it clients with Afro-Caribbean, Caucasian, curly hair, women or even just the latest trend hairlines.

Propecia / Finasteride Tablets

Take one a day and hopefully keep the shiny head away. These tablets lock the formation of DHT in your scalp – lowering DHT appears to inhibit the further shrinking of hair follicles in male pattern hair loss.

Laser Caps / Laser Combs (Low level laser therapy)

Low level laser light can promote hair growth by micro-circulation, metabolism, protein synthesis at cellular level, and by increasing blood flow to the scalp and follicle.

Cosmetic Tattooing

This option involves an expert individual applying a hair permanent cosmetic makeup technique, used to disguise bald areas to offer the look of natural hair. “This is a good solution for men with very short hair.
