GQ Deems Brad Pitt a Hair God

I talk a lot about Hollywood's many hair chameleons on the blog, but usually it is in reference to female stars, but Brad Pitt deserves mention too. 

GQ recently deemed the star a "hair god" for being able to pull off everything from long hair to buzz cuts and just about anything in between. But what I find most remarkable about Mr. Pitt's hair is that his hairline is still strong, thick and healthy at 52. As I've mentioned before, the hair loss risk increases with age ... But, specifically, at his age, Mr. Pitt is defying a 50-percent chance of hair loss.

So how does he do it? 

Good genes of course play a role, but there is a good chance there are other factors at play as well. 

It's my guess that Mr. Pitt has been very proactive in protecting his hairline over the last 10 to 20 years, and probably uses some type of preventative treatment - like FDA approved Propecia. I also wouldn't be surprised if he's used Rogaine from time to time (although treatment should be consistent to be effective) and low level laser therapy.

Just a hunch, but hair as good as his usually requires medical intervention.

But will it last forever? Not without medical treatments like the ones I described above.
