It was not until he decided to gamble on even more future-thinking technologies that he reached legendary status. Elon founded Tesla; a company focused on bringing electric cars to a wide audience in an effort to render fossil fuels a thing of the past.
His other company, SpaceX, makes rockets capable of reaching space orbits and hopes to one-day land people on Mars.
Elon is a self-made billionaire. His family didn’t give him any money, but incidentally, they (or their genes to be clear) did give him something he struggled with. It’s baldness. Elon used to be a victim of a particularly aggressive receding hairline, but not anymore. How? We suspect technology also was the answer there.
Elon Musk’s Hair: Before and After
Elon Musk had a particularly receding hairline case as his pictures during his tenure as PayPal CEO can attest to. In 1998, he already had most of his hairline recede to almost a third of the top of his head with balding sides, at only twenty-seven years old!
A known workaholic, stress may have played a part here. Also, bad genetics surely did play a part in that, as probably did Elon’s notorious obsessiveness with his work.
Fast-forward to 2012, and you can see a conspicuously fuller hair associated with his characteristic looks.
Elon Musk Hair Transplant: Has He Had One?
Elon Musk has never, ever admitted to having a hair transplant procedure.
But for most, it is pretty obvious that he underwent one. And he certainly had more than enough to pay for it too.
Elon likely had an FUE hair transplant. This method consists of extracting healthy hair follicles from the base of the scalp to then graft them in the balding area.
For the look of his previous hairline, Elon probably had an FUE procedure that involved more than a thousand follicle grafts.
The results are so natural-looking due to the surgeon’s careful placing of the grafts according to the hair’s natural growth direction.
Hair from the scalp’s base also is thinning-resistant, which ensures that the Elon Musk hair transplant results will be long-lasting.
Hair Loss in Men
Our hair will thin out; that is definitely going to happen as we age. However, in some people, it just happens way too early and way too fast.
Age plays a part, but as you can see in Elon’s case, it can be both hereditary and situational.
Genetically, some people are very sensitive to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a by-product of testosterone that causes hair loss.
In Elon’s case, one can assume that many long nights of work affected his hair loss further. But as Elon also proves to us, it doesn’t have to stay that way.
