It’s hard to tell which recently revealed tidbits about tennis legend Andre Agassi’s life, published on Oct. 30 as excerpts of his upcoming autobiography, has caused more of a buzz: His yearlong flirtation with crystal meth or the fact that the glorious mane of hair he sported on the court through much of the 90s was a hairpiece.
At this point, it seems to be a draw. Agassi’s confession makes him one of the rare celebrities who has stepped forward and admitted to wearing a hairpiece due to thinning hair.
Internet discussion boards and forums are charged with rumors, frequently with corroborating photos, of celebrities and their constantly shifting hairlines. Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Bruce Willis and Al Pacino are just a few stars whose hair status is discussed in detail.
The good news is that for the rest of us, there are a lot of options available to treat hair loss.
An estimated 60 million men and 40 million women in America suffer from hair loss.
Androgenetic Alopecia or common male pattern baldness (MPB) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men. By the age of thirty-five two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss and by the age of 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.
Despite the pervasiveness of the condition and availability of effective medical treatments, there still remain many myths and misconceptions about it, and few physicians who specialize in helping those who suffer from hair loss — a condition which, for some, may have detrimental consequences.
