He may be the best basketball player in the world, but that hasn't stopped the media from deriding LeBron James' efforts to hide his receding hair line. TMZ recently poked a little fun at LeBron for what they call his "hair-loss denial," with a little advice from none other than Inside the NBA's Kenny Smith (a fellow sufferer of androgenetic alopecia).
The Celebrity Hair Loss Blog has written about LeBron's recession problems before, including his suspected hair transplant over the summer - which, unfortunately, appears to have been an old-fashioned "linear" or "strip-harvest" hair transplant which results in a long linear scar at the back of the head. A much better option for LeBron would have been the FUE (follicular unit extraction) with NeoGraft, a no scalpel/no stitch minimally invasive procedure that creates a completely natural-looking hair line without the risk of linear scarring.
At 29 years old, many may think LeBron is fairly young to be losing his hair, but hair loss in your 20s is not uncommon at all. If LeBron wants to protect his hair line, he should consider an aggressive multi-therapy regimen, potentially including such treatments as compounded minoxidil and finasteride, low level laser therapy, nutritional supplements like Viviscal and possibly another hair transplant (FUE with NeoGraft).
