Hi /b/ ive been browsing for 6-7 years now and i rarely make a thread but im gonna need some idea's really.
So here is the situation, im 19 about to turn 20 and ive been diagnosed with early onset male pattern baldness,,, well its happening insanely fast and i just find myself sitting there and losing hair strands by the second, im taking Viviscal and using rogaine twice a day with a special shampoo to promote hair strength, only thing is ive been doing this for months and no changes, im sincerly asking you guys if you have any idea's to try and keep my hair.
tl;dr im balding fast as fuck, what do
I just have a question for you, OP. When the inevitable happens, what course of action will you take?
A) Buy a nice wig that looks real
B) Go for the tough bald white guy look
in the first few week of taking rogaine (or any other minoxidil based stuff) will cause, that the weak hair will fall off. this means you will first see a balding effect, before stronger hair regrows.
but it's also known, that a small percentage of people won't see the the desired effect of regrowing hair.
Fuck you. OP might well have been here since he was 13. Shit, most people here now are 13.
Just shave it bro, and make it part of your image. You know Vin Diesel? He started shaving his head for the exact same reason. It's no big deal, as long as you own it and don't be one of those worthless comb over faggots.
It's nothing you can control, you're worrying about something you can't do nothing about. It's just a big waste of time. You should just shave it, and focus on something else. All you'll do till you change your mindset is just worry about it, buy shit that doesn't work, or try procedures that wont work. I'm so glad I never got procedures done, and didn't put myself through that shit. Just get over it, because it's really out of your control.
I started going bald around your age op, im 29 now, ive been rszoring my head for like 6 years now. Just accept it man, nothing worse than a man desperatley trying to hold onto his hair when its just not there.
I'm 24, I was pretty much in the same boat when I was 19. Finally just got a buzz cut and never looked back. It makes the thinning less noticeable, looks pretty manly coupled with 5 o'clock shadow and it's low-maintenance as fuck. I can roll out of bed and not even think about what my hair looks like and a bottle of shampoo lasts forever. Also, you can buy a hair trimmer and give yourself free haircuts. Just do a #2 all over and you're good for a few weeks.
You'll get over it man. Just buzz it and move on, it's all you can do. Most people won't give a fuck as long as you don't let it bother you.
Plenty of options.
Personally I started using hair fibres. And kept my hair short.
Then in the end I went to turkey and got hair transplant. Much cheaper than most other places. Looks great. Get around 4000 together for it. Haven't worried since.
Probably an hero, no point living without hair tbh, or just rock a beanie could work too
Looking into laser tech atm for hair regrowth, tbh ive always been a skater kid with long thick hair and have always been told by hair stylist that my hair has been just around perfect i couldnt imagine living without it, im probably going to try every trick in the book
OP, read this, do some research on DHT, its the main reason mens facial hair will actually thicken but the more of it you have the more you will lose your head hair. Be careful though you can reduce your sex drive by reducing DHT and you can risk erectile dysfunction however your head hair will become thick and luscious.
If I were you I would just go bald headed and grow a beard if you can.
This is not true at all for starters.
I'm 27, was blading at 16. At first I cared, started using all the products from 18 to 20.. Nothing works. I even bough that damn Lazer comb. If ur hairs going this young all u can do is accept it. I promise you 96% of girls don't care at all. They only care if you let it show it bothers you. If you own it, noone will care and won't hurt ur chances with most chick's at all and there are alot of girls who think it's sexy for what ever reason.
Don't give yourself false hope by spending money on scams, just own it and know the only person who thinks it's a big deal is yourself.
Just cut your hair short, I buzz my hair with a number 4 clipper and call it a day.
I dare you to look this guy in the eye and tell him about your sissy fucking hair problems. He'll tell you to quit fretting over it like a girl and just be a man about it. You're a fucking MAN, OP. Not a girl and not a sissy fucking faggot. Just nut up, buzz it like I suggested, and forget about it. Nobody around you actually gives a fuck about your hair and you'll be that much more attractive to women if you can remain confident in the face of a minor physical flaw.
Stop drinking, stop smoking, stop eating meat, drink fuckloads of water, really, a fuckLOAD of water, workout twice a day, vitamin supplements, eat fish-chicken-vegetables- everyday, stop fapping everyday
Ok well heres the thing with that, it was on my mothers side and is now being passed to me, but my grandfather didnt bald till he was 35, so i think it also has something to do with my diet/ health, ive cut all monsters and shitty food out of my diet ive also started exercising and going to the gym, im literally doing everything in my power to keep my hair but i literally get so depressed just running my hands through my hair and pulling out 20-30 at a time idk?
just a matter of poor genetics. unless you opt for a hair transplant, it's best to become comfortable in your own skin. btw, bitches love rubbing on a bald head in between their legs, some food for thought.
Also /b/ro's any part of hair except pubes/beard is really really really really easy to pull out, like i could litereally pull a patch of hair from my eyebrows, maybe its a defficiancy of some sort? also thing hair loss happened to me shortly after i abused adderal for 2 months that was like a year and a half ago
make sure you are getting enough protein
i lost most of my hair at 22, i still get laid everyday since then
Shave it off dont try and hide it
I know its tough now but in a year it wont even be a thought in yr head
OP you bald faggot! it is "Humans and Hormone Growth" student here...
Take a screenshot of my post and save it on ur HD. Check it after 5+ years and you will know what I am about to say is all true.
In most males the baldness occurs due to hormone disorder. There are very few with genuine skin disorder which can be reduced using medication.
BUT baldness due to hormone change CANNOT be cured or reverted with ANY available medicine (English, Chinese, Indian, American, Herbal, Homeopathy etc etc).
Now You have only 2 solutions in front of you:
Solution 1: Start practicing PRANAYAMA (breathing exercises - type of a YOGA). Become power practitioner of it and do it freaking everyday. If you do that for enough time period then only you will start to see some positive results in your baldness situation.
Solution 2: Buy one of the best trimmer as per your budget and learn to trim your faggot head (number 2 clippers) because SHIT is going DOWN!!!
My younger brother experienced the same problem when he was 19 yrs old and by the time he was 22 yrs he was BALD as FUCK!!!! hahahahaha
TAKE PICTURES of your BALD head you FAGGOTTTTTT
This is the only genuine treatment but it's not commercially available yet.
But srsly dude, just accept it. Shave your head grow some facial hair. I'm two months you won't care anymore
MD here you pathetic faggot
first step: minoxidil 5% (regaine rogaine)
second step: pantogar/pantovigar caps and topical
third step: finasterid. finasterid = no more baldness. and no prostate cancer.
but maybe less libido
other topical stuff does has no real prove
or you you roid yourself up and become muscular and bald. works too with chicks.
DO NOT waste any money on any cosmetics. DO NOT hide it. We get so many people coming in with the same issue every week!!!
Just accept it and work on your other skills. Eat more veges, drink more water, get more sleep, cold showers, more aerobics ...
Dont fight it and fuck ur peace. Save money for other things.
Dude, I've had long hair for 10 years. I also know that most men go through this shit and that my father lost most of his hair before reaching 30.Now, my father also worked in a chemical environment so that might have a say in the issue of balding but hey... What I'm trying to say is this: I've had long hair for a long time and I would like to keep it like this for even longer, but, should baldness strike and I begin to lose hair, I would shave it all. Because it looks messed up to have ... patches and shit.
Alright bro. First, props for nutting up and showing the problem.
Second, yeah, you're hair's done for man. It will be completely gone on top in 5-7 years. That means you have one of two things you can do.
>worry and fret and spend outrageous amounts on whatever shit 'solution' you go to, whether pills, toupees, combovers, etc
>just shave that shit and get used to it, and make it part of your style
Either way, it's game over in for your hair. Better to take it like a man, and then be the alpha bastard that everyone is used to seeing clean shaved bald and doesn't worry about it, while all the other guys start crying like you are right now about their hair problems.
Just shave head man trust me its not that bad.
sry OP ur fucked... just shave it all off and get ripped like that mongoloid Vin Diesel
Shave your head dude. If you have the right head shape for it it's looks really good. I've shaved my head since I was 13 and even now in my 30s I couldn't image letting it grow out. Having hair is a hassle anyway.
Genetics man, my grandfather started loosing hair at age 85 and was pitch black until he was like 80.
It's the same with body type, penis size etc.
Just like what you get.
Being bald does not look that bad man.
There is no one solution as causes are different. Gj being retarded and asking on /b.
Let professionals examine you and proscribe a treatment if you care about it as much as you are saying.
>giving myself free haircuts for like 10 years. >awesome looking at how much money I've saved
Jesus dude how broke are you? How much does a haircut cost in your area?
Get your hair cut every 6 weeks or so for £10. That's about £85 per year. So in 10 years you
have saved yourself £850 / $1200. Seems pointless to me and unless you're going bald
and buzz cutting yourself you probably look like a dickhead.
Sorry man but this guy has it:
Your hair is too far gone at this stage. Even if you had intervened early it looks like the hairloss
is / was too aggressive to treat. Most hairloss treatments work for people who are just thinning
at the temples.
Baldness is your destiny so wear it.
If that is indeed you, then it is already too late. Probably only hair transplants from the back of your head would help.
The difficulty and time that it takes to restore your hair rise exponentially with delay before starting the treatment. In your case it is many thousands of dollars already.
that's exactly my point you retard. Vin Diesel looks like a hairless Gorilla and yet he HAS fame he, HAS $$$ and he's fucked more bitches than me... but that means that OP has hope! that OP can face adversity with the ferocity of a (hairless) Silverback and come out a changed man. A better man!
Seriously OP you NEED to start yourself on a workout regiment, it's the easiest way out for you and only takes like a few hours each week! Has worked wonders for yours truly, who used to be a boney faggot with a small dick; now I'm a muscly faggot with a small dick! and women fall for it. (Almost every time)
Unless your hair grows really fast or you are so into styling it or your are a faggot cuck who enjoys
going to a barber to have some fucking Turk touch your body or, better yet, going to a hair salon so
you can fantasize about being a pretty lady
getting all done up for her big day then 6 weeks is sufficient.
>grrr! i'm mad and too inarticulate to find an insult better than retard!
Shiggy diggy, babe.
I started losing my hair at 17 and worked out like crazy back then, but never gained a pound.
I'm 37 now. When I hit 30 I started putting on muscle more easily and the rate of hair loss slowed dramatically.
