Donald Trump's hair has fascinated and confounded observers for years. Its color, height, and all-around feathery fluffiness has prompted many debates and investigations. Well, now we have some insight on the HOTUS:
The president takes medication to bolster his hair growth, Trump’s longtime physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, told the New York Times. Finasteride, otherwise known as Propecia, is marketed to treat male-pattern baldness, and apparently works like a dream.
Bornstein told the Times he also took the drug and that it helped him "maintain his own shoulder-length hair."
“He has all his hair,” Bornstein said. “I have all my hair.”
People have wondered if Trump’s hair, given its unique shape and ~flow~, is real.
Last year, Gawker concluded Trump's hair was likely a $60,000 weave, Men's Health thought he was combing it over to hide something, and Jimmy Fallon made history by actually tousling it.
Trump has repeatedly defended the validity of his golden locks, even joking that he welcomed a rainy inauguration day because "they're going to see that it's my real hair."
Bornstein said the president also takes antibiotics to help with rosacea, a statin for elevated blood cholesterol, and a daily baby aspirin to reduce the risk of a heart attack.
Bornstein and the White House did not immediately respond to questions on Trump's hair-growth method.
At 70, Trump is the oldest president in US history. Bornstein shared a report in December claiming that Trump would be the healthiest president ever. His physical strength and stamina are “extraordinary,” Bornstein had said.
