Where's my hair going!

I noticed recently that ever time I scratch my head a hair or two will fall out... and now. I can notice a true blue run of the mill, receding hair line My Dad started to lose his in college when he was about 22, why am I starting so early! (I'm 20) Any of you older fellas use a hair regrowth thing? The Rogaine they sell here at the PX only cure's the balding spot on the back of a dudes head. What do ya'll use?! I'm to young for this!




Peace!


Crap, I just realized no more Mohawk's.. Ever!! ****!


PS Sorry for the totally random thread.

My hair fell out when I hit my 30's. It's too late for me to try Rogaine but it wouldn't hurt for you to give it a try. I think it prevents further hair loss.

Shave your head to see if you look good. If so, forget the rogaine, if not, sucks for you.

no worries... bald is beautiful. I second the suggestion to try shaving it and see how it looks. Don't worry so much.

I'm 20, and I'm definitely losing hair. I can run my fingers through and have a few hairs come out. I've shaved it once already, and I'm considering doing it again very soon.

I wasn't losing hair, but shaved my head not long ago. I get compliments on it all the time.

Hmmm... Q-ball style sounds like a plan. I'm gonna have to start working on the upper body though,
cause if I go bald I'll look like a watermelon set on top of a toothpick


Also if the beautiful ladies of the Foo said bald is sexy then I'm game!
Thanks for the response's ya'll are the motivation I needed.



Peace!


PS Once I take the leap I'll have to show off my q-ball in the "How Hot" thread so keep an eye out ladies

you could wear a bandana under your bike helmet - it helps keep the sweat out of your eyes, too. My hair is about waist-long but I've sunburned on my part before, and that hurts. The bandana works for me.

Just FYI, baldness is caused by high levels of testosterone. Ironic. Anyway, take heart that you must be pretty manly.

If there was a place where all the hair that goes down shower drains collected the hairball could be classified as a planet!

I look ugly as hell with a shaved head. I'd look much worse with a horseshoe. Within a couple years I'm gonna have one if I don't shave. It's pretty thin on top already, about half the volume of the sides. I'm 21 now, and I'm probably gonna start shaving real soon. Hats and shaving are a good combo for bald guys.

screw Rogaine...are you really considering spending all that money month after month only to have it fall out again if you stop using it? and there is a chance it might not even work for you.
