Advanced Hair Studio's website says Crowe was a long-time ambassador for the company.

According to Advanced Hair Studio's website, the cricketer was a long-time brand ambassador for the hair loss treatment studio starting in 1995.

Crowe's personal website listed the studio as one of the organisations he supported and endorsed.

Crowe said he began treatment with the clinic in 2000 after he started losing his hair.

During an interview in 2013 Crowe said he shaved the top of his head, where his fake hair was attached via a membrane system, while undergoing chemotherapy after losing the natural hair on the rest of his head.
