Balding

nobody cares if youre bald

What a fucking load of shit. Being bald is a death sentence.
just shave it bro
The people who say that should take a look at the front page of /r/ bald. Its pathetic.

Balding is a curse. There is no cure, there is no stopping it. Once it starts you can kiss ever looking good goodbye. Why even bother?

balding will expose you to levels of insecurity you never thought possible.

once it starts you will gauge everyone you interact with in terms of where they are relative to your balding level.

once your losing hair autism reaches critical mass, you will shave your head and realize theres more to life than having a full head of girly hair.

I started noticing I was going bald at 18. I'm 24 now, I don't shave my head yet, but I have a pretty far receding hair line, and the hair I do have on top of my head is very thin.

You got a few years, just know that the longer it goes, the less hair you have.

This is literally me. No balding on either side of my family. Dad still a fairly full head of hair well into his 60's. All uncles, cousins, brother, everyone with thick heads of hair. I'm 28 and have the same hairline I had when I was 16 years old.

And I'm fucking paranoid about losing it, because I know how much I love it now, and I know it has to happen eventually.

tfw supplementing pumpkin seed oil, saw palmetto, and a DHT-blocking shampoo daily.

I just wish I didn't give a shit, honestly

kek, so much this. i remember when i first started losing my hair the ONLY thing i would notice about other guys wasn't their face, it wasn't their height or frame or skin color or jawline or anything - it was their hairline and density.

Its a good feel man.
I know what you mean though about always worrying. Both my brothers got the bad end of the stick and have receding hairlines but i took from my mothers family side and have none.

It worries me one day it will go but for now i just enjoy it and hope i keep it into my 60s. Which is looking possible.

I already told myself that if I ever go bald I'm going to do 1 gram of tren per week until I either get so psychotic I rape a cute girl, or kill myself. Or who knows maybe if I take enough tren I'll get so crazy I become a celebrity or some Shit. Either way though, it beats JUST being bald.

I've been looking for a reason to shave my head again - shaved it for football in high school and didn't grow hair again until I was out of the military. I have a bit of a receding hairline, really just a widows peak that has stayed the same since I was early 20's.

Shaving my head was so easy. It made me look more intimidating, and i could cut it myself. Girlfriend says she doesn't it like it because I look like a criminal and says I should keep my hair. Meh.

I had a bald patch by the time I was 22 and I was trying to cover it because I thought shaving it was the end. I eventually shaved it and life's been sick as fuck.

Don't worry about apologising.

In the first experiment, nearly 60 participants looked at a series of photos of men who were similar in age and attire. The difference was that some men had shaved heads while others had full manes. The participants rated each man in terms of how powerful, influential and authoritative they looked. When the results were averaged, shaved men topped the ratings.
In the second study, Mannes showed participants images of four men. Each man was shown twice, once with hair and once without. Not only were the men perceived as more dominant when they were shown digitally balded, but they were also viewed as nearly an inch taller and 13% stronger.
In the final study, Mannes gave the participants verbal and written descriptions men. Some men were described as having thick hair and others had shaved heads. Once again, the participants rated the men with shaved heads highest for masculinity, strength, dominance and leadership potential.

tl;dr: look like a cuck or look like an alpha

you idiots act like you don't see the occasional bald guy still getting with hot women

so the girls who prefer the boyish look will count you out but the ones who like masculine men will still give you a chance and, surely enough, more of those appear the older you get

so if you're balding in your late 20's and 30's it'll hardly mean anything

Hair systems (wigs.. whatever) are way more advanced than in the eighties, they are undetectable, stay on for weeks at a time, and you can swim, skydive, exercise.

I'd relook at taking fin. The chance of getting sides is basically 1% and its almost guaranteed to thicken what hair you do have.

In fact most side effects can be attributed to getting older rather than fin.
Consider for a moment that your DHT levels will still be higher than a woman and they aren't dropping dead.

@Playboyize

That's not exactly what was said in this post @askme

"Found more attractive" isn't necessarily the same as "found more powerful, influential and authoritative." You can look strong and commanding and still be ugly.

The article you linked even pointed this out

Still, that doesn’t mean everyone should be reaching for the shaver. Mannes research also revealed that men with shaved heads were considered less attractive and older-looking than those with thick heads of hair — and attractiveness is also correlated with perception of dominance. “So, whatever a man gains in dominance directly by shaving his full head of hair will be offset to some degree by his diminished attractiveness,” says Mannes.

Nice quads. Yeah. Anyone who's gone from a pretty boy hairstyle to a 1/4 blade buzzcut knows that girls prefer the former. Men will respect you more and you can still pull ass and get mires, but girls will be like "oh no! What did you do?" and shit.

Well for me at least. But I'm a cute boy with blonde hair. Not some grizzly man's man.

Started noticing it was thin when someone brought it up while I was in basic when I was 23. Kept it until 25 then shaved it.

28 now. Bald and bigass beard.

Young chicks not into it too much though occasionally some with daddy issues

Chicks my age and older women are all about it

Dudes are too which gets annoying.

The there are other people claiming they took it for a few weeks and it completely fucked their libido permanently.
