A man with a receding hairline says his bald patch made him feel so self-conscious that he abstained from sex for two and a half years.
Mike, 24, from Sunderland, who hides his receding hairline beneath bandanas and says his thinning thatch has wrecked his social life, has undergone a hair transplant.
While waiting for his transplanted follicles to start growing hair, he sought a temporary fix from the E4 show Body Fixers, to allow him to feel good about himself at an upcoming wedding.
The stylists completely transformed his bald patch by attaching pieces of hair to Mike’s head, which he plans to keep until his transplant takes effect.
Mike previously kept his receding hairline covered up by fashioning the rest of his hair into a quiff that he kept in place with a bandana.
He approached Body Fixers hairdresser Daniel for help, revealing that his hair has left his life in a ‘mess’.
He said: ‘It has affected me massively, my social life is a mess and my relationship is non-existent.
‘A lot of my close friends don’t even know about my problem. I just hide it, and it’s best just to keep it a secret for as long as possible.
‘There’s not a minute that goes by when I don’t think about my hair because it is my biggest insecurity.’
Mike even said that his bald patch has ruined his sex life and he hasn’t felt comfortable enough to have sex for over two years.
‘I’ve learned how to cover it well by playing with it. But let’s face it, it looks ridiculous,’ he revealed.
‘I’ve gone two and a half years without sex. I can’t face the thought of being intimate.’
Mike has undergone a hair transplant but this can take up to a year to show any results.
He approached the Body Fixers team because he had a wedding to go to in Ibiza and needed a quick fix.
The professionals told him they could fashion a hair piece that he could wear over the bald patch until the rest of the hair grows back.
Hairdresser Daniel placed the piece lower than where Mike had the hair transplant so it would cover up the scarring.
Mike couldn’t believe the results of his procedure, saying: ‘That’s unbelievable. That’s actually unbelievable.
“I absolutely love it. Thank you so much!”
Body Fixers airs on Thursdays at 9pm on E4.
