There has been a lot of speculation about Chris Evans’ hair transplant since earlier in his career when the actor opened up about his hair loss.
Nobody knows, for sure, if he underwent a hair transplant or if he is just genetically blessed.
Chris Evans is one of the biggest names in Hollywood right now. The 41-year-old actor rarely opens up about his personal life. In a recent interview with People magazine, Chris Evans opened up about getting older and making different choices.
Whether Chris Evans made a choice to have a hair transplant or not, male pattern baldness is a common problem that faces about 80% of the male population.
We’ll walk you through Chris Evans’ hair evolution and possible treatments that would inspire you to have superhero hair!
Chris Evans has been a household name since he put on the Captain America suit in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). Along with stars like Robert Downey Jr and Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans was one of the first stars who kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Back in 2011 in an interview with Enews, Chris Evans (29 at the time) had doubts about being able to continue playing Captain America for another ten years.
He was concerned about getting older and losing hair because of the required perfect physique of an enhanced superhuman.
And here we are more than 10 years later, and Chris Evans’ hair is better than ever!
Chris Evans’ hair wasn’t always long and lush like it is these days. In earlier roles like Fantastic Four (2005) and Playing It Cool (2014), Evans had a buzzcut that showed a receding hairline.
He went through a lot of hair and beard styles, like his ragged look in Snowpiercer (2013) and his villain role in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010).
However, in more recent movies like Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Netflix’s The Red Sea Diving Resort (2019), Chris Evans has his hair longer and better than ever, matching the look of his co-star Chris Hemsworth.
Is Chris Evans Balding? Experts Weigh in
Most recently, Chris’ look at the premiere of his movie Lightyear (2022) led hair enthusiasts everywhere to speculate.
Did Chris Evans go through with a hair transplant to have enviable hair, or is it just good genetics and a good hair routine? Better yet, is Chris Evans balding?
Many hair transplant surgeons confirm that Chris Evans had a hair transplant and that it is exceptionally masterful work that probably goes unnoticed by the untrained eyes. So, he might have been balding all this time.
Here are the procedures experts are suggesting for having Chris Evans’ hair:
Follicular Unit Extraction is a hair transplant procedure that uses follicles from strong areas of the hair to replant them in weaker areas of the hair to motivate natural hair growth.
It is done efficiently over 2-4 hour sessions over a week or less. In about six months, the result is visible.
The hair grows naturally and healthier. This procedure leaves no scarring, and the surgery isn’t noticeable, unlike with wigs and hair pieces.
Follicular Unit Extraction rose in popularity because it’s safer than Follicular Unit Transplantation.
Follicular Unit Transplantation is a hair transplant procedure that involves taking a strip of skin from the head and extracting the follicles from the skin to replant them where needed in weaker areas.
Generally, Follicular Unit Extraction is preferred to Follicular Unit Transplantation because it extracts follicles directly without needing to take a strip of skin which can be extremely painful and can leave scars in the extraction area.
Direct Hair Implantation is an evolution of FUE that uses an efficient new tool to plant follicles directly into the needed areas after extraction.
Biofibre hair implantation is an automated procedure that implants synthetic hair with instant results and minor surgery.
If Chris Evans had a hair transplant procedure, it is most likely Follicular Unit Extraction or its latest evolution, DHI.
We are basing our assumptions on Evans’ seamless hair. He has no apparent scars or weak areas of hair, which leads us to believe that he either had a masterful FUE or has a great hair care routine and enviable genetics.
Other experts suggest that Chris Evans didn’t undergo a hair transplant procedure. They recommend a more holistic approach to hair loss and lean toward Chris Evans taking action before going bald via hair routines or medications.
Hair loss medications vary in results and side effects. You should ask your dermatologist for safe options specified for your case. Here are some examples of medications used in treating hair loss.
Here are some tips to keep your hair healthy and strong.
- Essential oils (lavender, rosemary)
- A healthy diet (including eggs, fish, and nuts)
- Getting a haircut
- Picking the right shampoo and conditioner (avoiding any products containing sulfates)
- Less stress/treating anxiety
Chris Evans is no longer Captain America and is looking forward to taking on new roles. He has been openly excited about shedding the hero image and playing villains as he did in Knives Out (2019) and The Gray Man (2022).
Acting requires transformation, and maybe returning to the buzzcut may open new doors in Evans’ career.
The jury is still out on whether Chris Evans had a hair transplant or not. We may never know as he is private about his personal life.
Anyhow, you can choose whatever works for you.
Procedures like FUE and DHI are relatively safe and effective in treating male pattern baldness. They only take several days and cause no scarring or pain.
However, the most important thing is to take care of your hair early on by choosing the right products (shampoos with zero sulfates and any harmful chemicals) and taking care of your physical and mental health.
