Among the many celebrities who showed a radical hair change, there is Lewis Hamilton. All his fans wonder how he got such excellent results and if Hamilton got some hair procedure. How did he do to achieve such a great hair look? What is his secret?
Here is everything you need to know about Lewis Hamilton’s hair!
Lewis Hamilton is a British racing driver. He is the star of Mercedes F1. The 36-year-old gentleman is currently in second place in the F1 ranking. His life looks perfect with just one problem: his hair!
Lewis Hamilton's hair history
Lewis Hamilton said his baldness appeared after using shampoo from hotels which caused him hair loss. In pictures, it is visible that Lewis Hamilton’s hair was thin, and his frontline was receding.
So did Lewis Hamilton lose his hair because of poor hair care? Most likely, no. His hair loss pattern is typical of androgenic baldness. Androgenic baldness is widespread among men: 70% of them experience it in their lifetime. Androgen is a male hormone causing baldness at the top of the head. The hair starts thinning, the frontline recedes, and eventually, the hair on the top of the head falls.
Did Hamilton have a hair transplant?
Lewis Hamilton claimed his hair got better just with self-care and a good diet. If diet and haircare are essential, they cannot let him get his hair back. Pictures show his frontline changed, so he most likely got a hair transplant and did not want to talk about it.
Many celebrities are shy about their hair transplant and do not want to admit it publicly. Many people are very harsh regarding cosmetic procedures, and the stars are afraid of being criticized.
Hair experts looked closer at the case and dismissed the shampoo story as Hamilton most like suffered from androgenic alopecia and had a hair transplant to get his hair back.
As he never publicly mentioned he had a transplant, we cannot precisely know Hamilton’s technique. He most likely used one of the most efficient techniques, either FUE or DHI.
Let’s take a closer look at both of those techniques.
FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. It is the most popular hair transplant technique. The surgeon harvests the grafts from a donor area at the back of the head. There, the grafts are resistant to androgen, so the transplant results are long-lasting. The grafts rest in a solution while the surgeon opens tiny incisions to implant the scalp’s hair follicles. The procedure is non-invasive and scar-free. Most patients need a day of rest before being back to normal.
DHI stands for Direct Hair Implantation. It is the most efficient hair transplant technique; the surgeon takes the grafts in the same area as an FUE transplant. However, he directly implants them into the scalp with a unique tool known as the ‘CHOI Pen.’ This difference deletes the rest time of the grafts in a solution and the incisions. The grafts have a better survival rate, and the procedure is even less invasive, so it decreases the rest time after the surgery, and the risk of infections as the skin heals faster.
