Guy Faces Month-Long Sex Ban To Protect Hair Transplant

A bloke is having to dodge sex for a month in a bid to protect his new hair transplant which he's had after trying to dodge the rain for years because of his spray-on barnet. You can see how he used to spray on his hair below:

Cathair Curran, known as Kegs, had always suffered with an extreme widow's peak, but then started losing his hair at the age of just 19.

The content creator became a viral sensation when he grew out his locks and styled his hair forwards using straighteners in a bid to conceal his self-professed 'really big' forehead.

But Kegs started to suffer further hair loss, which he believes was caused from over-styling it, and started using root touch-up spray to cover his balding head.

This meant the now 24-year-old lived in fear of the rain in case his spray-on locks were washed away.

The influencer was then approached by hair replacement system company Novo Cabelo and offered a life-changing hair piece, which he wore since November last year.

But after deciding to make a move to Bali, he recently plucked up the courage to go for a more permanent solution.

In new videos, Kegs reveals the impressive process he underwent in the pursuit of a perfect hairline with Now Hair Time.

Clips document his progress from spray cover-up attempts to the treatment he received in Turkey earlier this month.

Kegs, from Loughmacrory, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, said: "For the first 30 days [after the transplant] you're not allowed to drink alcohol, smoke, exercise, go in the pool or sea or have sex.

"I've done three things in the past - the spray paint, a hair system then the hair transplant. It'll be the first time in my life I can style my real hair nicely."

Kegs was bullied in secondary school for what he believed was a 'big forehead' and dedicated hours to spraying root touch-up to cover his baldness.

Kegs went on: "I always had a really big forehead and never really noticed it when I was a kid, but then at first year in secondary school I started getting picked on.

"I was self-conscious about it and I grew my hair really long. I always tried to grow my hair out to cover my big forehead.

"Because I was starting so young, at 13 I was using loads of products and hair straighteners and I damaged my hair.

"It started to fall out when I was in my late teens, I lost a lot more hair earlier than I should have.

"I remember seeing a girl on Instagram using root spray to cover her bald patches because she had alopecia. I tried it one time and that's when I started spraying my receding hairline."

After making the decision to up-sticks to Bali, Kegs decided he needed a more permanent solution.

Keg said: "If I was living in Bali, it would be hard for me to get new hair systems every couple of months so I felt I needed something more permanent.

"I then got offered a collab with a hair transplant company in Turkey. I was meant to move to Bali [Friday, 4 February] and the company messaged me on the Monday before to see if I'd go to Turkey."

Now, Kegs is waiting for the wounds to heal as he prepares for his new start - admitting he feels more confident than ever about his future new 'do.

Kegs said: "For the first two months all of the implanted hair will fall out, then it needs to regrow.

"You start noticing the new hair growth at around three months but they said it can take a year to 18 months for it to fully grow out.

"The hair transplant operation can be around £2,000 usually but I got this as a collaboration [it was gifted]. The hair transplant is making me feel amazing and it's a lot easier [than the hair system]."
