    So I have been pondering what I should do for a while here. I have been getting sparse for a while now and I have a couple options. My one friend says I should dye my hair a darker color so it'll look like there's more lol. Then another part of me just wants to go completely bald and shave it off but idk. I usually just keep it cut really short but I don't know. I use to have so much hair when I was younger I would break people's clippers and scissors when I got a haircut. I don't know where it all went lol.

    Sometimes I feel self concious being that I'm losing hair and I'm not even 21. I don't know what to do lol. Any guys out there with a similar problemo?

    I personally started using a regular routine of spironolactone and minoxidil treatments about two months ago. It's surprisingly effective much to my pleasure, I'm seeing regrowth all over the top, it's slow of course so I'm keeping at it.

    In the meantime, I'm super excited to have discovered Toppik as an immediate fix. Look into it, when you apply it right, it looks amazing! I get compliments from a lot of people about how nice my hair looks, or they notice that something's just different: "Did you get a haircut or something??" icon_lol.gif It's an instant self-esteem booster for me, because now I can do my music concerts on the stage and not feel self-conscious about having thinning hair that is normally clearly visible from the bright stage lights.

    I saw your pics...just shave it dude. It is far too gone to do anything. You could try propecia.....but my friend took it and told me it fucked with his dick. I read online it can do permanent damage....Erectile dysfunction damage.

    Get some muscles with a bald head you'll look like a bad ass. You'll probably also get laid a lot.

    Actually, I say shave it and see how you like it. Do it while you still have hair on your head

    I say buzz it tight, and whatever you do, do NOT try and cover it up with coloring your hair or combing it over. If you dye it darker there will be a larger contrast between your hair and scalp. So just man up and realize that there are so many worse things that could be wrong with you. I mean, you could be like Paul.

    My opinion is do whatever will give you confidence. People will find that sexier than whatever is on your head

    Option C for now - just buzz cut it. You still have a little hair, but it's not as much maintenance as being completely bald. Ask me, I know...

    A helpful equation:

    Short buzz + beard or goatee = hot

    Multiply muscles in, and hot = hot x 2.

    See? The numbers don't lie.

    I started losing mine pretty early on too so I just decided to start cutting it really close. 10 years later people don't even remember what I looked like with hair (honestly, neither do I unless I look at pictures). In the end do what makes you most comfortable, but I would suggest going out and buying a good pair of clippers and just cut it off.

    Try 1 for three months and if you don't like grow it back out. Then attempt all the meds. Just understand the side effects and maintenence it will require. Many off them require constant use to maintain the hair. It could be a huge fiscal commitment and as you say you are very young.

    Hey man I went through the same thing as you about a year ago. I do a 000 all over but started with a 1. Try it. Don't listen to what some dick heads say. Its usually the insecure fugly people that give bad advice purposely to make you feel more on their level.
