For several years, Robbie Williams, 48, has had to deal with significant hair loss. Indeed, like 70% of men, Robbie Williams suffers from alopecia. A hair problem which he wanted to get rid of with several treatments, but which today he fully assumes. In an interview with the BBC, the artist explained: “I don’t want to take any more medicine because it depresses me. I’m just going to have to accept the Robbie Williams losing his hair.”
He had already considered a transplant in the past, but the doctors refused him. “The doctors don’t want me to have this procedure, they say my hair has become too thin.“So Robbie Williams had to resort to testing several treatments to slow down her hair loss, including a particularly expensive injection-based medication.”I tried this treatment. This thing cost me a fortune. It cost the same as my grandmother’s house. So they prescribed me these injections and told me that in five months my hair would grow back much thicker. But nothing happened.”
The wig, a solution?
Even if Robbie Williams has decided to assume it, he recognizes that his baldness still impacts his mental health. So he plans to wear a wig. “I’m thinking of getting a hairpiece. There are awesome wigs you can get easily now. You just have to shave all your hair off, then you glue it on and it holds for a few weeks.”, he explained during his interview for the BBC. An option he would reserve for the stage. “I could use these wigs for my tours.” Besides, it was because of the scene that he had a click. “When I’m on stage and I find myself in close-up, I look at them like I still think I’m 27. And then I turn and see a version of me […] with three necks and there’s a light shining on the top of my head that makes me look like a baby’s ass.”
