Is Kate Middleton's Hair Worse Than Prince William's?

During a recent visit to a homeless charity in London, Prince William raised a few eyebrows by calling out his wife's "nightmare" hair. But perhaps it was just a bit of lighthearted retaliation for her earlier joke that he should cover his ever increasing bald spot with a tuft of alpaca wool

Kate Middleton's hair is of course beyond reproach, but many people wonder - why doesn't William simply fix his bald spot?

Hair loss is a treatable condition, and it wouldn't be difficult for Prince William to significantly reduce his bald spot and prevent further hair loss if he were to visit a qualified hair restoration physician (or 'trichologist' as it's known in the UK). For the Prince, a multi-therapy treatment regimen would likely work best and could include Propecia, Formula 82M and a NeoGraft FUE hair transplant. There are other options too like Vampire PRP therapy and low level laser therapy. All of these treatments have been proven effective at treating male pattern hair loss.

At just 32 years old, Prince William is a bit ahead of the curve when it comes to losing hair, but baldness is not uncommon in a man's 30s. Given the state of his father's (Prince Charles) hairline, this type of hair loss was not unexpected - and other men who have baldness on either side of their family should consider undergoing a HairDX genetic test to determine if they are also at risk for androgenetic hair loss.
