The follicles that let men down for centuries, discussed.
You’re a young adult, and never thought that you’re growing old, until it hits you. You start noticing hair loss, and know all your carefree days are over. Kinda.
From a young age men and women alike start experimenting with their hairstyles. It’s a way of having fun and showing your identity. Hair makes you feel good…or bad on those pesky bad hair days.
Let’s face it, the worse hair days are those where hair doesn’t show up.
Personally I shouldn’t be grumbling, at 30 I still have quite a head of hair. Nonetheless, I did start losing hair, right from the front, making the hairstyle I stuck with for more than a decade started looking funny.
You’d think after a decade I would love a new look. You’re wrong. I started panicking and thought maybe I should start shaving my hair short, but it doesn’t really work for me. I guess I’ll be that middle-aged guy who keeps the same style just with less hair.
I‘m probably over thinking this, and you’re probably right.
But wait, look!!
It’s been receding seamlessly, but now there are GAPS in my hairline.
*funniest pic ever, looks like a thumb with hair on it*
You’re probably thinking, ‘he’s so vain’. On the contrary, people who know me can tell you that I’m not the type of guy who spends hours in front of the mirror. Not a narcissist. Yet, I did think to myself, ‘OMG, I’m losing hair’. It is a shocker no matter what age you are.
It DOES affect you even if you’re not one who really bothers much about his appearance.
You can’t be cool anymore. It takes part of your youth away.
I’ve known people who have lost hair much before I did and they all pulled it off. Personally, I envy them. They have a long last look they can keep for years to come.
Lately I came to embrace the whole idea of growing old a tad more. I do feel more mature overall and maybe a change would do me good. A nice one-sided part is my plan for the future.
Wish my follicles luck
Men, how do you deal with it? What are your fears?
Women, would you ever date a balding man? Do you find shaved heads attractive?
