so i'm confirmed for balding and im gutted. only 23.
i'm 6'2 with green eyes and broad shoulders. not fat. but i have a weird shaped head. not sure if i can pull it off. can only grow a patchy beard.
i'm definitely not going to use chemicals or get a toupee.
because my self esteem wasnt fucked beforehand. what would you guys do? shave it or buzz it short?
I started balding at 17, now a year later my hairline didn't recede but the top of my head is thinning fast. I'm 5'6. At least I could use my hair as a turtle shell.
Post your hairline. It might not be so bad.
I do know the feels though. I used to comment to my family I was balding and although it was a slow process it was definitively happening. Them pretending it wasn't and lying wasn't helping me or anyone. The truth is far more valuable for growth.
On a side note I will mention that there have been studies to suggest young men who fixate on balding are often using it as a surrogate focus to make deeper psychological problems.
Welcome to the club mate. Had to shave it since I was 18. The jews aren't ever going to let us have a cure so get used to it.
Man it sucks never being able to style my hair as a young guy in his 20s.
Sorry to hear that man. Your options are few. I would just reccommend getting a buzz. It sucks but eventually you're gonna have to do it. Most guys have weirdly shaped heads. I know I do. But it's better than having wisps of hair hanging off my dome. At least you've got height and cool eyes on your side!
Good luck my fellow baldlet.
the temples are fading a lot more than shown. even though i already have a five-head.
That's not really that bad, at least not to the point that you should fixate or worry about it. If it's going to happen it's going to happen, nothing you can do, so why even worry about it?
i have suffered from anxiety my whole life. thats all i do. but thanks.
if it goes south i'm prepared to accept fate. not going to drag out a slow death desperately trying every product available.
shave your head. its not that bad. When you see a shaved head person do you think "jesus that looks awful"? No, you just think it would look weird on you because you're not used to it.
just general anxiety. i find things to latch on to and worry about. i was self diagnosed with social anxiety but later realised socialising wasnt my biggest worry. i just stress. have high blood pressure and addictive personality
Shave it off and grow a stubble, mate. I hope have a masculine face. Also, start lifting.
I reckon it wouldn't suit you to have a full head of hair desu senpai it does kinda suit, nice head shape.
Sorta in a Patrick Stewart way, I wouldn't stress. Good on you for being so humble.
I was worried I was going to go bald by 20 because it happened to both uncles on my mom's side. Turns out I got hair from my dad's side, men in that family never go bald.
It's like pic related right now but shorter, feels good.
aw thanks bro. I love Patrick Stewart, he's a total gentleman. And yeah I figure being humble is about my only option at this point, and it kind of comes naturally to me. I feel like I project an aura of betaness to most women, though. They can sniff out my insecurities. I'm hoping that going almost fully bald communicates that I just don't give much of a shit anymore...hoping, at least.
My hair started thinning at around 20, and by the time I was about 22, it was bad to the point where I decided to keep it shaved instead of getting haircuts (which would always look horrible because of the thin hair).
It doesn't really look good, but it looks a hell of a lot better than if I let it grow out. Plus, I've saves hundreds of dollars in hair cuts.
Lex Luthor was bald and look at what he accomplished, don't feel so bad about it.
Why do you guys keep deleting your posts? Own your baldness. Work out. Get swole. Try to grow a beard. Don't give two fucks what women think about you. Some will actually think more of you for having the balls to get a buzz/shave your head. You may not believe it but it's true. Plus, as you get older they will start to care less.
>fit, attractive, rich moviestar
Basically the opposite of a numale
If you saw that one infographic and think that its based on appearance then you missed most of the point, numales are the types to endorse and live a life of female inspired sycophantic submissiveness and I guess what you would call "male guilt".
(The patreon donators, and guys who do nothing but retweet feminist ideologies)
wearing glasses and balding isn't an indicator of anything beyond shit genes, and the beard is probably only in the mix because it makes balding look more acceptable.
>i'm definitely not going to use chemicals
no downsides to generic foam solution from the grocery store. add biotin every day and nizoral shampoo every few days.
>but you gotta do it your whole life
or until you're married or committed. literally less than $30/month to keep your hair looking nice.
why not use what science has created for you?i can see not wanting to use pills, since they have weird side effects...but no side effects for foam/vitamins/shampoo...
Caring about your baldness I think stops at 40. After then you just stop giving a shit because your body starts really turning to shit without massive counter effort.
I thought about getting some Rogain from Costco, and just riding it out for a few years.
those chemicals will never give you full, healthy hair. just buzz it off. a lot of women like buzzcuts because it looks more masculine, assuming you have a manly face, of course.
