007 Daniel Craig going bald, says hair expert
A prominent hair surgeon from UK has said that until Daniel Craig gets a hair transplant, he will end up bald like former Bond star Sean Connery.
Hair transplant surgeon Dr Asim Shahmalak, said that even the world's hunkiest secret agent isn't immune from the trials of male pattern baldness (MPB).
"Like Sean Connery before him, Daniel Craig's Bond is receding slightly around his temples. It's obviously a very physical role, and Craig bulks up considerably to play Bond," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
"It's possible dramatic changes in diet, exercise and his body's muscle mass will have a knock-on effect on his testosterone levels, and thus his hair. But Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and Timothy Dalton were also all slightly receding on the temples when they played James Bond, so maybe it's something the producers look for?
"I'm sure Daniel Craig doesn't want to lose all his hair like Connery, so he should seek professional advice. I think he would benefit from 1,500 to 2,000 individual follicle grafts from the back of his head where his hair is still thick and resilient. That would bulk out his temples nicely," he said.
At 44, Craig is relatively high-risk for hair loss from MPB.
Apparently, Connery is now totally bald on the top of his head, and wears his hair short.
According to Shahmalak, Craig would need individual follicle replacement therapy Follicular Unit Extraction, where each follicle is extracted before being re-planted where it is needed.
This treatment leaves minimal scarring which is vital, as Craig wears his hair short for many roles.
