KEY POINTS

  • Prince Harry has been losing hair due to genetics
  • Prince Harry could go completely bald in three to five years
  • Prince Harry is seeking hair loss treatment in London

Prince Harry’s hair appears to be getting thinner and thinner. And some people have blamed Meghan Markle for it.

But a hair expert recently debunked the claims that the stress caused by the Duchess of Sussex is what’s being causing Prince Harry’s baldness.

While speaking with Express, Spencer Stevenson from SpexHair.com said that the condition is 100% genetic and not stress-related. Prince Harry’s dad, Prince Charles, also has thinning hair. And Prince William started losing his hair at a young age.

But even though male pattern baldness is genetic, Stevenson advised Prince Harry to do something about it as soon as possible.

“If Harry doesn’t intervene with proven hair loss treatments, then in my experienced opinion he could well be completely bald like William within the next three to five years. This is why Harry is believed to be taking action now,” he said.

The hair expert is encouraging Prince Harry to use tried and tested hair treatments that could help prevent progressive hair loss.

“This could be via medication such as Propecia. Topical treatments such as GroMD Shampoo and Regaine can also help to block DHT [Dihydrotestosterone] from attacking and miniaturizing the hair follicles. Prevention is vital as hair loss is progressive,” he said.

Meanwhile, Stevenson also confirmed the possibility of Prince Harry’s son, Archie, also going bald when he’s older just like his dad. But Markle’s side of the family will also play an important role in Archie’s hair condition.

Since Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle, doesn’t have the healthiest hair either, the possibility of Archie going bald in his 30s is high. But there is also a possibility that when that time comes, a cure for male pattern baldness has already been found.

A source recently told The Sun that Prince Harry has already addressed his baldness. He has been receiving treatment from a prestigious company in London’s Mayfair.
