    Is this happening to anyone else? I've made it to 31 with a full head and now I think i'm done for.

    I mean I still can't see any difference yet, but in the shower and stuff there's non-figuratively hundreds of hairs afterwards and that never happened before. Just when i'm on the computer there will be a couple lying around afterwards. I'm finding them all over the ****ing house.

    I wondering what to do: shave it off before it anyone notices, enjoy my hair while I've got it, wait a while then fight the mutha****a tooth and nail with Rogaine and all that ****, or just let it go in peace.

    Anyone have any idea it normally takes from first getting hairloss to blinding people with the shine off your head? Anyone gone bald and then managed to still get a bird afterwards? I'm freaking out a bit tbh hahaha.

    Any tips gladly received (aside from stop being such a melodramatic cnut and stfu).

    So it's not visibly thinning on top, or receding at the temples?

    It will undoubtedly thin but you may not go bald. Start saving for some clippers as a precaution. If you have down lighters in your bathroom try diffusing the light, or changing the beam angle so the light bounces off a wall rather than direct. Avoid wet look gels and wear hats.

    Started losing it from my temples at the age of 18... by 27 I just had a stupid landing strip down the centre of my forehead... so out came the clippers, and the lot came off. Never looked back, and never bothered about it since. Remember, NO COMB OVERS..... ever! :)

    But from the time it started going to the time the clippers came out it was a good 8 or 9 years though. That's not bad.

    Do you look acceptable with shaved hair?

    Do you hate your avatar?

    Yeah. The hairy bastard. What does he need with all that hair at his age????

    I think im going to go for the shaved head and test it out. It might look alright, then I can just go bald in peace. If it looks **** then I can at least get on with a premature midlife crisis...

    You might just be gong through some hair shedding. Perfectly normal.

    If your worried take propecia/proscar. That will stabilise your loss (if ur having any)

    It's a life treatment though so bear that in mind.

    You're done for, the ultimate sign of weakness right there. Would you want a bald bird? Didn't think so, but you'd settle for one in desperate times. That's your next gf, a woman who has given up. Might not be such a bad thing, quitters are easy to please and grateful for what little they have. Chin up, sport!

    Larry David, the front figure of bald men and hero of everything, has this to say on baldness:

    _____________________________________________________________

    "Somebody asked me recently what it is I'm most proud of. 'That's
    easy,' I beamed. 'It would be the way I've adjusted to baldness.' I'm
    a bald man who is way out there. No toupees, no hats, no beards. Just
    totally unvarnished, unabashed bald. One of an ever-increasing
    minority of bald men who have chosen to do nothing.

    "When true bald men meet, they have an immediate connection. Bald men
    love other bald men. There's a bonding that takes place on some deep
    level that you never get with anyone else. We've been through it. We
    live with it. We've read the surveys -- the ones in which 75 percent
    of women say they would not date a bald man. Think of it. That's why,
    when a bald guy gets the girl, we know we've got a woman of substance.
    Which is not to say that the typical bald man has any substance. The
    average bald man, for example, has the same superficial standards for
    women as the guy with hair. That's why we have to have a little more
    going for us than the hair man. We have to dress a little better, make
    a little more money, and have a little more charm just to compete. And
    we do. Have a conversation with a bald man sometime. Go ahead. Do
    yourself a favor. Tell me you don't walk away impressed. That your
    day was not made a little richer by virtue of the fact that you were in
    Bald's presence."

    "But the bald man who doesn't make the effort to compensate for his
    baldness is in trouble. The last thing the bald man needs is to get
    lazy. A lazy bald man is done. Show me a lazy bald man, and I'll show
    you a miserable bald man. The lazy bald man who needs a shave and goes
    out in sweatpants and a T-shirt might as well hang it up. That's not
    how we compete in the hair world. I say to the lazy bald man that he's
    making it harder for the rest of us.

    "The bearded bald man annoys me. That's not a proud bald man. That's
    a bald guy who's trying to enhance. He wants to deflect attention away
    from the head to the chin. It's subtle, but the message is the same:
    I'm bald and I don't like it. Most of my contempt, however, is
    reserved for the bald men who wear the cap. They must be kidding.
    They walk around with their baseball caps on, hair sticking out in the
    back, and, yes, they look good. People are always telling bald men how
    good they look in hats. Of course they do. Why wouldn't they? But
    what happens when they take that cap off? Have you ever seen the looks
    on people's faces when the bald man takes the cap off? They're
    dumbfounded. And the cap will come off. That's a given. Say you meet
    a woman in the park with your hat on. You walk her home. You call her
    up for a date -- now what, bald man? Are going to wear the hat on the
    date? What do you intend to do? You've got a dilemma. You made your
    first mistake by going out with the hat. You think she's going to like
    it when you show up at her door with your chrome? What she's going to
    be is disappointed that you misrepresented yourself. You've tried to
    come off as a hair guy. You've lied, bald man."

    "There's a new bald man in our midst. He's chosen to shave the little
    hair that he has down to a little stubble, a style last employed by
    Nazi barbers. Others shave it off -- the theory being that no hair is
    better than some hair. Again, more tricks, more gimmicks.

    "But neither hats nor beards hold a candle to toupees. How could
    anyone have respect for bald men if they go to such ridiculous lengths?
    That's why hair guys are so condescending toward us. We're jokes to
    them. We're not taken seriously. If a hair guy has a girlfriend, he's
    not threatened by a bald man. He doesn't mind if his girlfriend has a
    platonic bald man in her life. He's not worried. 'Come on in, bald
    man, make yourself at home.' Nothing ever gave me more pleasure than
    the time I took a woman away from a hair guy. 'How did he do it? I
    didn't think...' Yeah, while you were taking me for granted, hair man,
    I was platonicking my way right past you. You won't make that mistake
    again. He thought it was O.K. for me to be up in the apartment,
    hanging out, watching T.V. -- with him right there! Can you believe
    the temerity?! Can you imagine a bald man letting his girlfriend have
    a platonic relationship with a Hair? Wouldn't, couldn't happen. They
    don't get near Hair. And alone with Hair? Never.

    "I do have a theory (I admit its self-serving) that the bald man is the
    better lover. First, you have the appreciation factor. The bald man
    is so thrilled to actually be in bed with a woman that he'll do
    anything and everything, and all with tremendous gusto. And, of
    course, there's the testosterone. We've got it in spades. That's why
    we went bald in the first place."

    ______________________________________________________________


    Almost makes me want to go bald. Almost. It would be a great ice breaker should I ever run into mr.David.

    If you're genuinely thinking of using the hair growth products such as propaine, you should probably start thinking of using them now. It will help keep your hair at the level it is now for a bit longer and will have more of an effect than when you've got a large bald patch somewhere.

    My advice? If you don't look horrific with a bald head, just take the plunge. Being a bald guy is the same as being a guy with hair. If you're confident, life is great. If you're not, then life is ****. Its just hair, some girls are bothered by it but most are bothered by a lot of other stuff before that (especially confidence...).

    As for how long it takes before it disappears, it differs hugely. I know one guy who went from thick head of hair to huge patches of shiny in less than 2 years. Others have held on for 10 years+ (though in my view with little dignity as they've gone through every method to keep it).

    These are the most viable options.

    Proscar/ propecia - keeps what you have and slows down any loss. Sometimes you may experience growth.

    Nanogen - fibre sprinkles that camroflage thin areas

    Scalp micro pigmentation - like at tattoo that can cover patches of lost hair. Some balm men get their heads done to have it appear that they have shaved their hair.

    Hair transplant. - what Rooney had.

    expensive and painful isnt it? Plus how does it work. I have sparadic back hair over my back, really want it rid but I get it waxed and cream etc.

    Maybe I should look into it a bit more.
