Hair, and the loss of it

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.

Even Klose is worried about his follicle situation.

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.

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?

Balding Beckham still looks good. If he starts losing more forehead hair will he still sport such a hairstyle?

I'm a 30 year old soul, whose need to express himself was not satisfied by the common social media. While others vomit words with little thought, I will try my best to fill the void they have created. Born, raised, and reside on the cursed islands of Malta. I studied Sciences my whole life and always wanted to have a space where I can release my creative demons. In this blog, scientific objectiveness will meet the cry of different opinions and thought-invoking tales. Subjects will vary from the futile to the world changing.
