Shane MacGowan uses Guinness to combat hair loss
20th January 2010
The Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan has admitted he has a strange way of battling male pattern baldness, alcohol! Not only is the “Fairytale of New York” star widely well known to enjoy many an alcoholic beverage, he also actually washes his hair in Guinness. The Irish singer, who at 52 does still actually sport a full head of hair, has advised men who are worried about succumbing to losing their hair to try the old Irish method of running Guinness through their hair. He says, "They sell all those lotions to cure you of baldness, they don't work. There is only one way to cure baldness. You pour Guinness over your head, collect it in a bucket, and drink it in the morning. It's proven to work." In addition, MacGowan refuses to wash his locks when he’s away from his homeland of Ireland. He added: "I don't wash it, only in Tipperary water." However, I assume there are people out there who are understandably reluctant to have a Guinness odour when going to the workplace or when trying to chat up a potential partner, so if you think you are starting to succumb to male pattern baldness and would like help then why not try one of the only few proven medications available today that has been shown to be successful – Propecia. Propecia is a 5 alpha reductase inhibitor and it works by stopping or reducing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the hair cell, thus helping to reverse the balding process. It increases hair growth and prevents further hair loss associated with male pattern baldness. Over at Medical Specialists Company Ltd., we offer quick and easy online consultation and once approved by the doctor you could be in possession of your Propecia tablets in as little as 48 hours.
