Making decisions is one of the most difficult things we have to do, and one of the hardest can be the one made for your career. The process is never easy, making decision and resisting temptations are hard at the end of the day. Your career, job and choices tend to shape your lifestyle.
Imagine the struggle you face sometimes when you have to choose between your two favorite colors or ice cream flavors!
Here is the story of a Model, who had to chose between Beautiful hair which were necessary for his career and his sex life!
Life turned upside down for Giorgos Tsetis when while actively booking jobs for Vogue Italia, posing for Steven Meisel and working for the high fashion brands Armani, Versace and John Galliano, he found that his hair started falling out in clumps.
This isn't a rare problem in Men's modelling and is a very big concern. Having a full set of hair is a prerequisite in landing any job. There was one cure, Propecia, the FDA-approved drug that curbs baldness by preventing the conversion of testosterone to dihydro-testosterone, in the body. The only side effect, a major one was: Sexual dysfunction.
He took Propecia for six years. On one hand, the texture and bulk of his hair improved but on the other hand he almost lost his girlfriend due to the lack of arousal.
Fortunately, this story has a happy ending. His girlfriend stayed, the one who left was Propecia! In the end he realized that the risks were just too overbearing to handle. That was when he met Roland Peralta, who was COO and CEO of a natural shampoo brand. Joining forces, they created Nutrafol, a vitamin supplement that holistically promotes hair growth by re-balancing hormones in men. Today, Tsetis has a full head of hair without compromising his personal life.
