"I’m 31 now but I was 21 when I really noticed I was losing my hair. It started from the middle of the head first, rather than receding from the front. But it was a barber of mine who mentioned I was going really thin in the middle.
That was the point where I started to think about it a bit more and then I noticed over time, roughly when I was about 23 or 24 that there was significant loss.
It didn’t make a significant impact but I certainly acknowledged that I was losing it and it didn’t leave me feeling particularly happy as a young man. Losing your hair is not ideal and it got significantly worse by the time I was 25.
I lost a lot to the point where I needed to shave my hair off.
I had a lot of hair on the sides, back and the crown but very little at the front. So my haircuts got worse and there was only so much I could do with it.
One day I walked into a supermarket and a fan had blown my hair from one side to the other, and a friend looked at me and it just felt so obvious.
I just knew at that point I had to let it go, so I shaved it all off.
I moved a hot country and I had a tan so it looked alright but as I got older I started looking at myself in the mirror thinking I have aged too soon.
For me it was about looking young again as much as it was about looking good, but it’s different for everybody though. I genuinely feel like it’s taken years off me."
