Prince Harry is worried about losing his hair like his older brother, Prince William.

According to a published report, Prince Harry underwent hair-thickening treatment at the prestigious Philip Kingsley Trichonological Clinic in London's Mayfair.

Harry, 35, had the work done last year after experts noted the bald spot on the crown of his head had doubled in size since he married Meghan Markle in May 2018.

Meghan, 38, also has treatment at the hair clinic to look her best before the royal wedding, according to The Sun on Sunday newspaper.

Experts say the only long-term solution to permanent hair loss is a hair transplant (plugs or grafts).

Scalp Exercises

If you've tried every "guaranteed" hair loss treatment without much success, you may want to try scalp exercises.

Scalp exercises have been proven to reverse hair loss.

Male pattern baldness usually runs in the family. It can also be exacerbated by stress, diet, illness or environmental factors.

Male pattern baldness usually affects the top and front of the head, mainly because those areas lack adequate blood flow to the roots/follicles.

Hair loss often begins with a receding hairline that extends to the top (crown) of the head. Most men still retain full, thick hair on the sides and back of their heads because those areas are stimulated when they lie down at night.

The constant tossing and turning in your sleep helps to stimulate the back and sides of the scalp which increases blood flow to the scalp.

Unless you sleep upside down, the top and front of your scalp are not stimulated, which leads to atrophy of the follicles and hair loss.

Feel the back and sides of your head with your fingertips. Does it feel tight and firm? Now feel the top of your scalp. Is it soft and mushy? That's because the top of your scalp is not getting a good workout.

Scalp exercises are not the same as scalp massages

Men pay hundreds of dollars on gadgets such as portable vibrators to massage the scalp in the hopes of regrowing hair on the crown. But scalp massages are not as effective as scalp exercises - which costs you nothing.

Scalp exercises work best if you still have some hair left on the crown of your head. If your crown is completely bald and shiny, you may achieve better results with hair plugs or hair grafts.

Scalp exercises can be difficult to learn. Some people have a hard time mastering scalp exercises. But with practice, most men (and women) can reverse their hair loss in a matter of weeks!

Scalp exercises are most effective when you're able to easily move your entire scalp from your forehead to the back of your neck by simply contracting your scalp muscles.

Scalp exercises:

1. Increases blood flow to the whole scalp/epicranial area (layer under the skin)

2. Strengthens the walls of the blood capillaries (tiny veins) that nourish hair follicles and scalp

3. Promotes growth of new blood capillaries under the skin that nourishes the scalp

4. Tones the scalp and increases elasticity of the skin.
 

Here are two easy scalp exercises to try (don't use your hands):

1. Raise your eyebrows

2. Pull your ears back

Try to do both of these scalp exercises at the same time. You will feel the front of your scalp sliding voluntarily.

Once you master these simple exercises, you will be able to contract your frontal and occipitals muscles and move your entire scalp without raising your eyebrows.

These exercises are most effective when you lie on a bed with your eyes closed and the back of your head resting on a pillow. But you can perform the exercises at your desk or while sitting on your sofa.

Do these exercises at least twice a day. And don't forget to take pictures at least once a week to track your hair growth progress.

Good luck.

Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley had a lot on her mind the day the Democrats voted to impeach President Donald Trump in December. She told The Root that she lost the last of her hair the night before the vote.

"I was completely bald. And in a matter of hours, was going to have to walk into the House Chamber ... and cast a vote in support of articles of impeachment. And so I didn't have the luxury of mourning what felt like the loss of a limb. It was a moment of transformation, not of my choosing."

Pressley's personal struggles with Alopecia began last fall when she noticed "sinks full of hair" every morning.

Pressley, 45, said she learned she had bald patches on her scalp while getting her hair retwisted. She wore custom lacefront wigs and head wraps to conceal her shame.

She said she lost the last bit of hair at a pivotal time, while juggling her responsibilities on Capitol Hill.

After voting to impeach Trump, Pressley fled the House chamber to hide her shame in a bathroom stall.

"I felt naked, exposed, vulnerable. I felt embarrassed. I felt ashamed I felt betrayed," she said.

Pressley revealed her bald head in her interview with The Root.

Alopecia is patches of hair loss or balding on the scalp caused by tension, pulling, excessive heat for styling tools, fungal and biological infection.

Black women are affected more than any other race or ethnicity due to the stress put on our scalps by hair styles including tight braids and hair extensions applied with glue or sewn in. Also, Black stylists using blow dryers on high heat burns the scalp. Some blow dryers can heat up to 500 degrees!

LeBron James and his family were forced to evacuate their California home and drive around all night looking for shelter due to wildfires, according to his rep. LeBron finally found shelter for his family in a hotel after hours of driving. If that sounds a little far fetched to you, it probably is.

There was an even bigger crisis for LeBron over the weekend when many headlines and social media posts focused on his hair "falling out" during the Lakers win over the Utah Jazz.

Everyone who follows the NBA knows how sensitive and vain the 34-year-old Capricorn is about his hairline. It wouldn't be such a big issue for his fans if he didn't bring such attention to his thinning hair every season.

Every year LeBron returns to the NBA with a new hairline that is thicker and fuller than it was the previous season. And every year his fans and trolls notice it and mock him for it.

 

LeBron is so vain about his hairline that he uploads cell phone videos showing his barber and stylists carefully grooming and primping what appears to be a male hair unit. That hair unit rolled up during the Utah game, and his teammate, Anthony Davis, pointed it out on national television.

LeBron's hairline began receding prematurely while he was still a teenager. He had many hair plugs that apparently failed over the years. LeBron tried concoctions of hair dyes and spray on fibers - none of which seems to work for him.

LeBron is a three-time NBA Finals MVP and a 4-time NBA MVP. He won NBA Championships with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 2013 and the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016.

He has a loving wife, Savannah James, and three beautiful children, LeBron James Jr., 15, Bryce Maximus James, 12, and daughter Zhuri James, 5.

With so much to be thankful for, why does LeBron let his receding hairline be the bane of his existence?

Many of LeBron's colleagues and associates have encouraged him to "come home" and join the elite NBA bald head gang, which includes NBA greats Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, and Shaquille O’Neal. Will 2020 be the year when LeBron finally goes home to join his contemporaries by shaving his head?

LeBron James suffered an embarrassing hairline mishap during Saturday night's game against the Utah Jazz. The 34-year-old Akron native typically wears a headband during games, but his headband slipped to reveal his Bigen hairline.

FYI for you women, Bigen, pronounced like "Beijing", is a magical concoction of chemicals that, when applied the correct way, makes hairlines and beards look fuller, thicker and blacker.

Unfortunately for LeBron, his application of Bigen became diluted by his sweat, and when exposed by his errant headband, it became obvious to everyone sitting courtside that he was wearing a lacefront wig - not hair plug implants.

LeBron's teammate, Anthony Davis, alerted him that his headband was pushed back to reveal his Bigen hairline. Video shows Davis pointing to LeBron's head and shouting, "I'm talking about your hairline."

Narcissists make strange bedfellows. They also make bad parents. According to a source, studio singer Beyonce decided to wait until her daughter Blue Ivy turned 2 before perming the child's hair to tame her unruly curls. As you can see from the above photo, the results were disastrous. Do they even make relaxers for toddlers?
