Millennials Are Losing Their Hair Early: Cristiano Ronaldo Has a Salon For That
Soccer superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, is officially in the beauty business. Yesterday, he announced a partnership with Insparya a Spanish haircare clinic with the latest in capillary technology and a decade of experience in the biz.
They seem legit. Only problem is struggling with hair loss isn’t the easiest challenge to admit. But who better to reinvent the discussion of replanting hair follicles like seeds of grass into your skull than Ronaldo?
TMZ reported that while Ronaldo claimed his ultra-coiffed mane is fully original, he endorsed the procedure 100% and will do it if/when need be. “When I think it’s necessary [to have a transplant], of course I’ll do it,” he declared at yesterday’s clinic opening.
With studs like Ronaldo leading the way, why not dig into relevant men’s health topics, such as hair loss, which is affecting men under 35 in record numbers?
Studies indicate a rise in hair loss amongst millennials is mostly due to stress, according to a report by MarketWatch.
A new survey released Thursday from Bankrate finds that 17% of millennials (ages 18-37) lose sleep because of educational costs, about three times as many as their elders. What’s more, 39% of millennials toss and turn over work worries (that’s 10 percentage points higher than Gen Xers and Baby Boomers), and half of millennials lose sleep over relationships, compared to just over one-third of older people.MarketWatch

We hope to enable a conversation that’s currently closeted. Men aren’t supposed to care for themselves. We call bullshit. The people who depend on you and care about you want you to. To do the most good, you must be well.The Hims Mission
