Robbie Williams has revealed he’s spent thousands of pounds on hair loss treatments that, unfortunately, haven’t had the desired outcome.
The chart-topping singer first had a hair transplant back in 2013 and was pleased with the results but was told that success couldn’t be replicated now as his hair is ‘so thin’.
Speaking to The Sun, the former Take That star admitted that he was losing his hair, joking: ‘When a light shines on the top of it, it becomes like a baby’s bum.’
‘I went to go and have a thatch, but the guy goes, “Bad news, your hair is so thin we cannot harvest it from there. It will do nothing.”’
Having been delivered that news in 2020, the 57-year-old then turned to eye-wateringly expensive hair loss injections, which are meant to stimulate hair growth – but that failed too.
Describing the ‘absolute fortune’ he spent on two vials – which he said ‘cost the same price as my grandma’s house’ – Robbie shared that he’d been told his hair would grow back much thicker and that he should see results in five months.
‘Nothing has happened. We are now seven months in and nothing has happened. You cannot tell,’ he lamented.
The singer has tried various styles out over the years, and even let wife Ayda Field, 42, shave off his hair completely in June last year, as she described him as ‘all or nothing with his hair’.
Musing on the downsides of stardom and being in the public eye when feeling self-conscious, the Millennium singer added: ‘When I am on stage and there is a 40-foot screen of me at the back and I am giving it the big ’un and doing the sexy, and I am looking behind me — there is this guy with a double chin and no hair.
‘It is like, “Thank you for humouring me.”’
Robbie recently signed his name on a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, urging him to put paid to scam adverts in the upcoming Online Safety Bill.
He joined forces with celebrities including Holly Willoughby, Richard Branson, Deborah Meaden, Phillip Schofield and Dawn French among others, in wanting tech giants to be held responsible under new laws – something for which Money Saving Expert founder and newly-appointed CBE Martin Lewis has been campaigning for a long time.
Speaking to PA news agency, Lewis said: ‘It isn’t for me to fix this problem, it isn’t for Richard Branson or for Robbie Williams or Deborah Meaden, we are having our names ripped off to rip off vulnerable people.’
The bill is expected to reach Parliament, the next stage of becoming law, early next year.
