How To Deal With Male Baldness.
I’ve left women out of this one because unlike us men, they are not as predisposed to balding. So what I will say below will only apply to men.
Generally, when your hair starts to get gray, you can easily fix it with a little well thought coloring. But with baldness… well, you have to get more creative. As most men realize, the hair is a limited duration asset, which will eventually show more on the shower floor than on your head. You’ve got to make the best of it while you still have it.
The exact cause of male balding has not yet been discovered, but it has something to do with the male sex hormones. So, until the miraculous cure arrives, you’ve got to make the best of your hair while you still have it.
– The first rule of balding: Don’t bother with comb-overs. They don’t look so good. You can part your hair I interesting way for the first few years, buy eventually you won’t be fooling anyone. Take a look at Donald Trump. Yuck!
– Second rule of balding – When it goes, let it go. If you’re just thinning all over with no patches of baldness, then cut your hair down to the lowest level. If you’ve got that monk’s patch on the back of your head, then shave it all down to the thinnest level.
– Third rule of balding – Toupees and wigs never work. Ever! Don’t even bother. A woman can tell you’re wearing a rug a mile away, and she’ll see it as insecurity, not vanity. Women laugh like hell at guys who think that they can’t tell it’s fake.
In the end, get a style that flatters your situation. For a lot of guys these days, shaving it all off is an option. Some go for the “Captain Picard” look that Patrick Stewart managed to turn into a sexy statement.
And if your hair is something that you aren’t willing to let go, then consider using the medicinal supplements that you can get both on the shelf and over-the-counter. They can help. As a last resort, you can even consider surgery to replace it.
Whatever you do, choose to accept the situation, even if it’s not the one you would choose to have. By fighting the inevitable, you take a harder toll on your self confidence by perpetuating a false sense of self. Your hairline isn’t you.
