Insecure about balding early

    One of the things I've really been struggling with is my hair loss and the loss in self confidence that goes along with a balding head combined with a receding hairline. It affects me daily as I see my hair everyday. It's been a downward spiral for about 3 years now, the beginning of my balding being around 19.

    I don't know what to do with it, it looks terrible if its not the day of showering it. It can get greasy, limp and to the point where I can clearly see my scalp. You can obviously tell which of the pictures is my most recent one. There's a reason why my thumb is covering my main one.

    I don't like relying on prescribed solutions and so Propecia is out of question and Rogaine just seems excessive.

    I don't have the head shape I don't think to rock a completely bald head. And part of the reason I've been growing a beard is to make up for the lack thereof on my head. Any suggestions or tips regarding hairstyle, or really anything?

    Cut it all off or cut it short. Don't run from it. Just embrace it.

    Some men have fetishes for bald men with baby faces.

    I do although I don't know if I count since I would of slept with everyone from Brad Pitt to Ted Bundy lol.

    My boyfriend is losing his hair, but he clips his hair very close and he could not be sexier.

    If you're confident, no one will notice your hair. So cut it close and smile! icon_biggrin.gif

    Ditto.
    Whenever you're feeling 'down', think about how lucky you are to have the time to be concerned about such things.

    Just keep it clipped short and don't try to hide it, and you should know that some guys find bald, buzzed, shaved men VERY sexy - I know I do.

    Neurotic men are so boring. Oh my, your hair is running away from you? What next, a pair of shoes? In the long run, we are who we are and the faster we accept these things, the sexier and healthier we are. You meet someone focused on outward appearance, you get the idea there is not much inward? Yeah, me too.

    I think you look cute. You're over thinking the whole bald thing. There are tons of sexy dudes without hair. It's really not a big deal for most guys, I think.

    A short buzz cut and no one will give it a second look.

    And in my opinion, it seems straight women are much more hung up in their men having hair than gay men are. So no need to worry...

    Going through similar phase here. Not all men look good with bald head. Of course some look very hot.

    Buzz it. There are so many worse things that can happen with your appearance besides hair loss. I cut mine all off in my twenties and haven't looked back.

    I didnt agree with what he said.
    Then again I never see gays object guys with bald head.
    But it could indicate that the guy is aging and we all know how gays feel about that.

    So.....IDK.


    It's a look that you have to get right to pull off. George Costanza would not pass muster, lol.
