Prince William gets royal hair advice

2011-07-21 06:59
London - Queen Elizabeth's hairdresser thinks Britain's Prince William should undergo a hair transplant.

Ian Carmichael believes the 29-year-old royal's thinning locks would benefit from the same treatment as Manchester United and England soccer ace Wayne Rooney, who recently opted for the cosmetic procedure in order to rectify his bald patch.

He told the Daily Express newspaper: "I think William should have a hair transplant. I know he doesn't want to because he thinks people would mock him for it but there's really no shame in it. It's not just Wayne Rooney, so many men are having them.

"William had braces on his teeth when he was younger and it's the same principle. It's all cosmetic, isn't it? Hair and teeth are the key to looking young."

Prince William's bald patch was the subject of ridicule from his father Prince Charles during a speech he made at the young royal's wedding to Duchess Catherine.

One guest recalled: "He joked about his own bald patch and his son's thinning hair, saying it must be hereditary.

"Everyone found it funny, even William and Catherine."

    He should shave it all off. Lots of guys look pretty hot with a shaved head.

      Exactly right! If you've got it, flaunt it. Shaving it all off was my "instant cure" for baldness, and I have not regretted it since :-)

      He should start "The Royal Hair Force"

      As long as he has a nicely shaped noggin! Somehow I don't think its going to work for him...

    Grow old gracefully dear. For how long are you going to fight ageing (just like King Alobar in Tom Robbins' Jitterbug Perfume)? If you do have the hair transplant operation, soon your knees will pack up, or you will get arthritis. You may get cataracts or your hearing may fail you. You can't run away from it - and it is only vanity that makes us want to fight it. :)

      "Meno-Porsche" is inevitable , there is no getting away from it

      Snoopy88 - 2011-07-21 10:37

      well he is not exactly old... just genetically and folically challenged!

    Yeah right Vanessa. Does it also cause blindness and for hair to grow on the palms of one's hand?

      Shistirrer - 2011-07-21 09:52

      Rusty, don't be such a jerk!

      Vanessa M - 2011-07-21 09:57

      ** sigh ** why is it that there is always one?? Rusty, dude. I'm not even sure WTF you're trying to say. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn. Why don't you go and troll some activist page?

  • Rusty - 2011-07-21 10:30

    Vanessa, I sure as hell don't know what you are trying to say. Have you had a frontal lobotomy or something?

      Vanessa M - 2011-07-21 10:45

      Rusty, get back to watching soapies and stay off the Net. You're confusing people and you're rambling on and not making sense. If you're looking for a reaction, I wish you were here now to see how much I'm laughing. There, you got your reaction. Now, go and do something useful like looking up the definition of "frontal lobotomy". ;)

      I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy

      When William broke wind in the bath Kate thought she heard Will asking for a four bob fob watch a hot water bottle & a bottle of bovril.

    LEAVE HIS HAIR ALONE. EVEN IF HE WAS BALD, HE WOULD STILL BE INCREDIBLY SEXY AND AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED, KATE'S OPINION IS THE ONLY ONE WHICH SHOULD MATTER AND IT IS CLEAR THAT SHE LOVES HIM JUST THE WAY HE IS.

      Monique - 2011-07-21 13:42

      @ Modred: Why are you shouting???

    He needs to eat plenty of coconut, coconut milk, coconut oil... all things coconut. Male pattern baldness is largely aggravated by dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the metabolite of the hormone testosterone. Coconut contains lauric acid, which inhibits 5-alpha reductase (the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT). More coconut = less DHT in the hair follicles, which means the rate of hair loss is slowed.... Or so the theory goes, anyway.
