Why Tiger Woods is Wrong About His Hair Loss

In a recent interview on Fox Sports Live, legendary golfer Tiger Woods opened up about his thinning hair line, which has been noticeable for the last three-plus years. But what Tiger said next is a bit upsetting, as it may give the wrong idea to millions of Americans who likewise suffer from male-pattern baldness.

Here's an excerpt from the interview:

- Interviewer: Are you comfortable aging?
- Tiger: I'm comfortable with it, my hair line is not. I have a nice skylight ... and if I don't wear a hat, I feel the heat. 
- Interviewer: Are you going to get to the point where maybe you just give up and shave your head?
- Tiger: I think I will, but I'm fighting the cause. I'm fighting it hard. It's a no-win fight, but I'm just hanging in there.

A no-win fight? Tiger, you haven't been to a qualified doctor! In the vast majority of cases, hair loss is a perfectly treatable and reversible condition. The hair loss industry is a highly specialized field and a number of effective treatments have been developed over the years - whether it's FDA approved finasteride and minoxidil, NeoGraft FUE micro-surgical hair transplants, platelet-rich plasma therapy, low level laser therapy, clinical-grade supplements and more. If Tiger wants to restore his natural hairline, all he has to do is consult with a qualified hair restoration specialist who can get him started on a multi-therapy approach. There's no reason today why anyone - man or woman - should give up when it comes to their hair. Medically proven treatments are out there and they are highly effective at preventing, treating and reversing hair loss.
