Robbie Williams, who has suffered from hair loss since 2013, has now decided to ‘adopt’ the condition after being denied a transplant
Robbie Williams has admitted he is “embracing” the loss of his hair after trying multiple medical treatments to save it without success.
The 48-year-old singer, who has been suffering from hair loss since 2013, told the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show listeners that many solutions are “inadequate” for his hair.
Robbie said: “It’s getting thinner and thinner. Nobody will give me a straw job [hair transplant] because they say my hair is too thin.
“I can’t take pills because they depress me. I just have to hug Robbie Williams who is losing his hair.
“We both lived long enough to see me lose my hair”
The singer had a transplant in 2013 and a second transplant in 2020 before being told his hair is now too “thin” for the procedure.
Robbie previously told The sun that he opted for several hair loss injections, none of which were successful.
Robbie Williams said: “I was going to go and get straw but the guy says, ‘Bad news, your hair is so thin we can’t harvest it there. It won’t do anything.
“So I had these injections. They were an absolute fortune, two vials of this stuff. It cost the same price as my grandma’s house.
“And they put these bottles in and said in five months your hair will grow back a lot thicker.
“Nothing happened. We’re seven months old now and nothing happened. You can’t say that.”
In the UK alone, around two out of three men go bald.
That NHS cannot offer most of the treatments that can help with hair loss because the cost is too high, instead offering wigs, lights, and steroid injections to patients.
They admit that no treatment is “100% effective”.
