I tried that too. Had it imported from the US. Didn't work for ****.
Grow old gracefully.
This is not a sufficient opening post for a Senate thread...oh, nevermind. But seriously I thought this was going to be different.
Bald men unite! Against Trump for being a poor representative of balding men.
Oh and I want to be totally PC and inclusive and keep this thread open to all the balding women out there. One scalp.
My hair is still as thick and dark as when I was 20 (I was 40 in October)
Just thought I'd share!
Okay. Shall I send you my address in a PM?
You hold him down, I'll scalp him.
Aw G you edited! You ruined my joke!
I changed it back just 4U
You know how women have a round hairline and men have an angular one?
Taking testosterone is supposed to give you those little bald corners that say, "Why yes, random cis person, I too am cis! It is therefore not necessary to beat me up in this public restroom."
Thus far, I'm having only indifferent success at balding.
"I've tried nothing and I'm all out of ideas."
Also, I don't care about being bald and never have. It's amusing to go get my remaining hairs cut. The hairdresser asks, "how would you like it?" I say: "does it matter?"
I'm 38, my hair is thinning, my hairline is receding, it happens. I shave my hair very short, grow it all out when it starts to get cold, then shave it all off again when I look very silly or the weather has improved. It's all about efficiency.
If I had the kind of Vaderesque baldness pattern Trump has I wouldn't waste money or emotional energy on cures, potions and procedures, I'd just grade 0 over that mess, Lex Luthor style.
*something something God made perfect heads and then covered the rest with hair something something bumper sticker*
Still have all my hair and not much grey. Stuff comes out in handfuls for about six months after giving birth though.
This.... there's nothing sadder than a comb-over, or a sad dye job. Own your age.
Thinning and honest giving no ****s.
Can I mock you for being autistic, Rain Man?
I mean, by using your own logic against you, we should be mocking someone (in this case, you) for an involuntary condition with absolute gusto.
"But, it's not the same, you could use rogaine" you might reply.
Sure, and you could try and be a real boy Pinocchio.
I was going to say "see how it feels", but then I realised that was cruel, because you can't.
God damn, that was harsh, even for you.
Also, I seem to have missed the quoted thing.
Like someone said in the politics thread, it's probably not entirely natural but rather the result of transplant surgery (which he has had)-- more primitive than the techniques today.
I know, and I don't mean it. I just wanted to ram home the "when done to you, do you feel bad? Maybe mocking people for something that they didn't ask for isn't the best tactic" message.
Like when I started to be I guess most conscious of the thinning - circa say 2011 - I was less plussed than I thought I'd have been. Mostly because the efforts required to pretend otherwise or fight the process are so at odds with personal dignity and I don't care too much. But it's not something any bald, thinning, receding etc man goes for on purpose, you know? Nobody wants it, and so bragging about mocking people for it sits there with being proud of mocking the disabled.
Mockery should be used for things that are wrong but can be changed. Otherwise it serves no purpose.
I think it’s ok to mock Trump’s hairstyle because said mockery might hypothetically result in him making better grooming decisions on aesthetic and hygienic levels, not to mention improved self esteem.
But making fun of his baldness won’t accomplish that!
What have I started.
When they ask if I want any off the top, I say, "Whatever I can afford to lose."
Awesome pic, man. Looks thin. Receding. Great angles. Keep us all posted on your progress. Show us what you got. Wanna see how freakin' thin, angular and receding your hair can get. Thanks for the motivation.
I have enough hair for a solid buzz cut (what I'm assuming you go with), but I usually shave it down to the skin two or three times a week. I let it grow to a buzz when I'm feeling lazy/neckbeardy.
Have you thought about getting it lasered? I've fantasized about it, though I'm sure it's not a realistic solution. Still, I'd save a lot of time spent on grooming. I bet it'd pay for itself after years of buying less razors or other shaving products.
What I'd really like is every hair on my body lasered off so I never have to bother with it again. I'd even sacrifice my eyebrows for that convenience.
The phrase I usually use is "accept it". But yes.
I have alopecia areata so I bald in exciting new ways every few months.
