Is balding truly the worst thing that can happen to a young man?
Honestly I do hope that research on stemcells could lead us somewhere, even though I highly doubt the hairtransplant surgeons association would give their business away easily

They might not give it away but emerging business will be willing to open up and compete using the technology. You can already get it done it places in Asia and India. The technology definitely in its infancy though.
Yeah I also find funny there are guys who would do anything to slow down the process
and fuck up their ormonal balance while doing so
I mean at the end you wouldn't give two shit of your receding hairline if women didn't exist in this planet
But you fill yourselft up with minoxidil to look better in front of women you can't fuck anymore since it caused you ED ?
shit's funny, really.
I don't think that going bald would be that bad. If i were going bald, I would just shave my hair off, no big deal.
There are plenty of other things that are worse than balding too, for example: cancer. you would be in a shit ton of pain from chemotherapy and the only women who would want to date to you(if that's your thing) are women who want to take your money if and when you died.
this is basically my hairline.
please kill me
>If i were going bald, I would just shave my hair off, no big deal.
5 years later, alopecia kicks in
>OMG WTF IT'S RECEDING I NEED MY MINOX #BALDLIVESMATTER
To instantly look 20 years older is no big deal?
You truly think this or you're just pretending to as everyone else with a full head of hair?
Nope, being in a wheelchair is shittier
>normies pretending to feel sorry for you all the time
>automatically a 3/10 at best to chicks
>getting fat and ugly
>can't do anything
>probably don't have the courage to kill yourself and get out of the situation
Once you start balding, the only women you will ever have a chance with are 35+ and used up. They may or may not be single mothers.
You won't have a chance with any girl in her 20s.
This is bad if you're balding at the age of 22.
Stem cells are actually transplants(if I'm not mistaken), so I think people have to get stem cells grown for their scalp with their dna(to prevent the immune system from rejecting it) then replace their scalp with the grown one.
Not that guy but I'll be 31 in a few months and this is my hairline. Hopefully won't impact me too much because the only women I'll likely be going for will be around my age. The one I really want to be with is 30.
Replacing the scalp sounds like a tremendous operation. And like a temporary one. What's to stop it from happening again? And surely your own dna still contains your genetic hairloss or dht weakness or whatever you suffer from.
I really do believe this. I don't really care about how I look because I have no real reason to. I'm not interested in dating and so I don't really care about what people think about me.
You're fine, sort of. She'll always look at guys with hair more than you. She'll be more attracted to them. But she knows she has to settle with you and she'll be alright with it.
>You're fine, sort of.
Yeah, this is how I feel. It's not ideal obviously, I'd like more hair. Although there's a lot of things I'd like which I simply will never get. Guess it could be worse. Just gotta play to my strengths.
no, he wasn't completely bald when he got it but it was thin as hell and his hairline was bad.
he went through a couple hairpieces before he found one that worked from what i remember. my family was basically like 'whatever', no one really cared. it looks fine to me, i can't tell it's fake.
I shall grace you all with some knowledge.
Reasons you're balding is mostly going to be down to testosterone, i.e. your testicles, which you can have removed. It is not that common for it to be due to genetics.
Understandably you probably want to keep your sperm, so you need to find way to lower your testosterone. Do some research on methods. Most common is going to be diet which there is endless suggestions of what to eat and what not to eat. A brief version is less red meats, no soda, more tasteless healthy shit like spinach and kale.
Some other tips I hear regularly is to keep a healthy scalp, if it's dry all the time, hair won't grow. Lightly massage it with a few drops of coconut oil once a week.
You can also take supplements, these are commonly found in hair growth formula that they sell at ridiculous prices.
horsetail, biotin, seakelp
If you do maintain a healthy diet where you're getting plenty of nutrition then you shouldn't need these but it couldn't hurt.
Important tips are hair treatment, i.e. how you dry it, how you sleep, what you wash it with. A lot of shampoos and hair products contain harmful chemicals which contribute to drying scalps and damaged hair, look for something with little to none. Washing your hair in really hot water and using hair dryers are culprits as well, warm water and natural drying is fine.
Hope this all helps.
Stem cells are cells that can be manipulated to replicate any cell. They could essentially replicate new hair cells to transplant into the scalp to replace the cells which have withered and died.
>Beard keeps getting thicker with age and never really stops growin outside of specific uncommon scenarios
>The head, the only part of the body that should never stop growing hair eventually stops
The human body is fucking bullshit.
That said, if you're balding just shave it all off and don't try to pull a Trump combover. You'll look a lot less pathetic.
My hairline is fucked but luckily I've been able to take fin with zero side effects for years and keep everything else. I wish it was a little thicker up front but I can live with what I have, and as everyone else gets older and starts losing their hair it will only get easier.
I dunno all closest male relatives have high foreheads.
keeping low testosterone doesn't make you beta, you're still male and can make gains regardless of your levels.
yes that helps, showering everyday deprives your hair of oils that it produces to keep itself healthy. of course don't let it go overboard, my hair produces too much but it's natural when your hair is 3 feet long.
I have the same, chances are your skulls big and if it's the same as when you were a child then that's how it is for you.
I refer back to my provisional license I got at 16 with my hair pushed back for the picture, I compare it to myself now at 24, it's still the same.
balding is rarely genetic and I don't suggest taking prescribed medicine shit like that, thats why I suggested supplements to use instead because it's more common to be malnutrition, not life threatening malnutrition obviously but enough to effect your health.
PLS, please help me. I am 19 and look like OP's pic.
I have a healthy diet. Nobody in my family was bald in their teens.
HOWEVER. I can masturbate more than 30 times per day. Seriously, i asked some friends how often they fap and most said 3 times per week.
I got checked for hormone imbalances, but im A-ok.
THE FUCK!? what do i do?
>HOWEVER. I can masturbate more than 30 times per day.
You can masturbate 30 times a day? Cumming each time? Assuming you sleep 8 hours you're fapping twice an hour, every hour of the day you're awake.
>keeping low testosterone doesn't make you beta
>you're still male
>you can make gains regardless of your levels.
Also i forgot to mention, i can orgasim 4-5 time per 10 min. Basically i need 2 minutes or less to get hard again, some times i straight up cum twice.
Like i said, i never thought i was strange this way.
>I do all those things already because, like you said, it's not expensive at all but let's be real, if it was that easy to keep your hair there would be no bald people.
do you really now, every single thing I suggested?
and it's not easy because you have to research and know whats bullshit and whats not, drug companies make a killing off selling snake oil to desperate people.
My life is pretty stressful, fapping is my only relief. If i stop i will kill my classmates. I dont want to do that. Im a very calm person but if i stop fapping it only takes a few day to turn me in to a "basic bitch" who cant deal with his problems and has to constantly be a dick to people.
When i fap im very calm though.
>I have to fap 30 times a day or my classmates will die
it sounds more like an addiction at the rate you're going, I hear similar things from people who smoke a pack a day.
go cold turkey, keep yourself occupied, if you get mad that easy then take up a martial art to deal with the frustration.
I shower every other day, use natural aloe shampoo, I take supplements every day and only blow dry my hair with cold air after it dried naturally because otherwise it sticks to my head and it looks pretty bad
Did I miss anything?
My hairline is fine for now, but my hair is fairly thin so I'm afraid of losing it
I binge sometimes and fap up to 5 times a day. That is grossly excessive by normie standards. Generally 1 - 2 times a day or ever second day currently.
Do you have penile scar tissue?
I already have fucked up DHT levels and enlarged prostate symptoms (which im definitely not supposed to have at my age). If I take finasteride, maybe ill keep my hair and not have to pee 10 times a day anymore
don't blow dry especially when wet as that is when your hair is weak, let it dry naturally with a towel wrapped around your head, massage scalp once a week with a few drops of coconut oil or whatever other oils are suggested out there. your thinning hair is most likely due to a dry scalp.
i've noticed my hairline receding over the past two years now but still haven't decided if i want to go on fin. i talked to my doctor and he said the dosage is so tiny it won't affect my sex drive at all, but masturbating is one of the greatest joys in my life and, to be completely honest, i don't know if losing the ability to masturbate is worth fucking with my hormones.
i think i see a bit of recession in the corners of your hairline, as well as a tiny bit of thinning
it still looks fine but i'd watch it over the next few months/years and take pics so you can compare longterm
if you really care
I dunno, maybe i can try it, i did before, i dint las a week. (3 days m8)
I also started smoking a lot of weed, like, i was high for the entire duration of those three days.
I must have smoked the equivalent of 50+ joints.
I may just have a weak personality, perhaps i am addicted to any and every way to feel good.
18 years old, have all the symptoms of an enlarged prostate and been receding since I was 15. Dont know what the fuck I did wrong. My dad started receding at 54 years old. Im trying to get on Fin because I figure that if my DHT levels are already retarded, then Finasteride would just make me normal.
I started noticing the difference after a little more than a week, after that point it gets a lot easier. The best advice I can give you is do something and don't just stand in front of a computer shitposting on 4chan because you will want to look at porn.
Read a book, play video games, watch a movie, whatever. Don't be bored.
not sure what happened there, non of this text is what i typed.
anyway, don't shave your head or you'll look like a testicle unless you've got nothing left but the crown.
just get a trimming machine and make it short, pic related me, 22 and balding like a mad man.
that looks like shit fampai, shaving it looks a lot better
grandad in his 70s, father in his 40s, both with zero hair loss, future is bright for my hairline :)
>hair was great and thick in mid summer
>suddenly shitloads of thinning and a bald spot at top at the end of summer
>suddenly start diffuse thinning like hell
>shedding stopped but hair is still thin
What the fuck is going on, is it possible to go bald this fast?
I'm feeling prickly hairs on scalp sometimes lately, don't know if they're new hairs or I'm imagining stuff. Gonna wait a bit until summer to shave my head now, if it doesn't recover it's perma buzz cut time for me.
Yes, it is. Source: My hair has thinned out ridiculously in less than a year; went from regular people hair to similar to yours. My hairline also receded at least 1/4 inch over the summer. Shit sucks.
I'm blond though and just assumed that had something to do with it
Maybe, i didnt notice any change for about 4 years tho.
How did this disgusting gene survived for this fucking long?
>tfw grandpa was bald at a young age
>uncle is bald
>it skipped dad
>he has great hair
>had great hair till this summer
>think about how lucky I am since cousins are getting bald at 18
>start balding at start of fall
Just fuck this fucking fuck
Absolutely zero evolutionary benefit at all too.
>tfw men triple your age have perfect heads of hair
>thought I was balding last year
>thought I was going to kill myself if it continued
>hair was actually just falling out because of anorexia nervosa
>start eating again and taking placebo vitamin sugar pills
>hair actually grows back
>considering taking tranny HRT now just to be sure I never get cuck hair
:^))))) im 25 kv neet :^)))
eh tb h its not that because i was a fuck up from the start, you know? its like i never really stood a chance, might as well go bald, why not right, what bad could come of it if females didnt like me already
its basically the final nail is coffin that is my dreams and hopes. the only females who are left for dudes like me are ugly used up roasties who settle for me because i'd support them. literally whores and sluts who have chad's kid and been prostituting themselves for money or for free dont even want me, but are willing to settle
nah fuck that shit, ill just wait for ai and enjoy videogames, thanks
