Are the Avengers Losing Their Hair?

Are the Avengers losing their super powers?

Out of the franchise's five leading men, how many do you think are showing early signs of hair loss?

The answer: all five.

As stated before on this blog, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth both show signs of recession - but add to that list Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Robert Downey Jr.

In all of the photos temporal recession is clearly evident. Evans spoke with E! Online about his hair loss fears years ago. Aside from the temporal points, however, the hairline looks fairly healthy, so he may already be undergoing treatment - such as Propecia or a minoxidil formulation (I'd recommend Formula 82M).

Hopefully all of the Avengers will take their hair loss seriously. After all, how often is a super-hero bald? That look usually goes to the villain.

Michael Douglas's Hair is Beating the Odds

Photo by PR Photos

At 70 years old, Michael Douglas's hair is more than just doing well for his age - it's better than many men 10, 20, 30 years his junior. So how does he do it?

While genes play a key role in the life of everyone's hair, it's unusual to see genes alone responsible for a full hairline when a person reaches their 70s. Although Douglas does show signs of some recession, his hairline is remarkably full for a man his age. There's a good chance he has medicine to thank for this - and while it's hard to know for sure, there's a good chance Douglas has turned to hair restoration treatments at some point, such as Propecia or minoxidil.

For other men who want to keep their hairlines full well into old age, the best bet is to visit a qualified hair restoration specialist. It's never too late to get started on hair restoration therapies, although a person's options do become limited once the hair is dead and gone.

Is Thomas Jane's Hair Getting a Boost?


Thomas Jane's new movie, "Broken Horses," comes out later this week, and it looks to be quite promising, particularly with endorsements from James Cameron and Alfonso Cuaron. But there's something even more promising than the new flick - and that's the 46-year old actor's hair.

For the past few years, we've seen Jane struggle with a noticeably receding hair line. Now, the 46-year old appears to be reversing the aging process with long, thick, full locks that make him look 10 years younger. This could be nothing more than a good hair colorist and stylist, but given the youthful look of his hair, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a bit more to it. It's particularly likely he could be using a clinical-grade nutritional supplement like Viviscal Pro to boost the quality, volume and overall health of his hair; he may also be turning to medical treatments like Formula 82M and Propecia to combat the hair loss and activate new hair growth.

Is the 'Granny' Look Bad for Your Hair?

Celebrities ranging from Kelly Osbourne to Rihanna, Kate Moss, Nicole Richie and Pink have all been seen sporting gray hair accentuated 'do's - and according to a new piece in Huffington Post UK, "granny hair" is becoming more popular among many other stylish elite as well.

But to get this style you have to risk damaging the hair strands through multiple bleaching treatments. In some cases, it could take as long as six months.

Most people don't realize this, but harsh chemicals like bleach and dye fundamentally change the structure of hair - making it weaker and more susceptible to breakage and damage. Overusing these treatments can lead to severe breakage, a common cause of loss of hair volume.

FDA Clinical Trial for Women with "Thinning" Hair

Bauman Medical Group is currently seeking female candidates for a 16-week FDA clinical trial of the LaserCap, a low level laser therapy wearable device for the treatment of thinning hair. 

Women between the ages of 17-70 who are noticing thinner, wispier hair, a thinner ponytail, a wider part-line or extensive amounts of hair in the sink or brush are encouraged to apply. Since the testing is being done in Boca Raton, Florida, you must either live in the South Florida area or be able to travel for two consult visits during the 16-week test.

My clinical practice has been using the LaserCap to treat "thinning" hair for some time now, and I've previously appeared on The Doctors and The Suzanne Somers Show to explain the science behind this treatment.

Recession Alert: John Cusack

Photo by PR Photos

John Cusack's latest movie, the thriller "Maps to the Stars," hit theaters last month, but one thing that's clearly evident is the star's hairline is starting to feel its age. At 48, Cusack's hair is taking a turn for the worse - with deep recession at the top and temporal points of the hairline.

What could he do to fix it?

Right now, Cusack's hair loss is manageable - by getting started on a multi-therapy regimen, such as Formula 82M, Propecia and low level laser therapy, he could stop the hair loss in its tracks and prevent further damage. 

Hopefully he won't let it go, like some other stars have. By taking action now, he can keep his hairline thick and healthy for the long-term.

Hair Tips from a Mummy

Although this isn't celebrity-related, I couldn't help but point out this new study, which did a chemical analysis of the hair of 2,000-year old mummies. 

While the archaeological findings here are fascinating, what's also interesting to point out is how important a healthy diet is for the hair:

"We can use hair to look at diet because, quite simply, we are what we eat," said the study's lead researcher Kelly Knudson, an associate professor of anthropology at the Center for Bioarchaeological Research at Arizona State University. 

"By looking at how far the hair is from the scalp, we were able to look at what they were eating in particular weeks or months before they died," Knudson said.

Diet plays a crucial role in the health of the hair, which is why it's so important to make sure you're getting plenty of hair "super-foods" regularly. While medical treatments are the only way to address thinning hair, healthy foods can help by boosting the overall vitality of the hair follicle.
