Default All those with hair loss in the house say HO!!

In the last three months or so my hair has been retreating at breakneck pace. Let me preface this by saying that I am nowhere near bald., just a young guy that is noticing some real recession for the first time. The hairs on the edge are looking like they're hanging on by threads. Luckily the loss is not at the back (friar tuck style) just up on the sides, though front and centre is starting to look a bit precarious as well. I know baldness is caused by testosterone / natural awesomeness but I really don't want to look like an evil count or, more likely, one of the aliens in Mars Attacks.

Any tips / tricks from your own experience? I hear the pills are bad for your balls and we're not really sure what they do.

Do not say Bosley which is basically gluing your ass hair to your head. I have considered gluing fake mutton chops in the recessions as they fit perfectly but then I would look like a Chiefs fan.

The worst part is my best friend is bald and I will not be able to ridicule him any longer.

Hats will just make me go bald faster and this is what my head will look like without hair on it. It's like a face with a globe attached to the back of it that no one notices because of the hair. Woe is me.

I am in the same boat as you, 31 now and going bald fast. I know some people who swear by Rogaine but it is largely preventative so you have to start early.

I just accepted it as a fact, keep my hair (what little if left by now) short so nobody will think I am trying for a combover and realized that as a ruggedly handsome tall scandinavian man with a doctorate in physics (soon) there are worse things that can befall you than balding.

I'm 25 and started receding pretty bad after I started thyroid medicine. Welcome to the club.

I just pretend like it doesn't exist.

I knew a lawyer that got the surgery and it looked like ****. They take hair follicles from the sides of your head where it still grows and implant them on the top of your head. Maybe he just has a ****ty Dr, but he has scars all over his head and he still looked bald on top.

**** the world just shave it.

Nothing will help if you're destined for full on baldness.

Don't ever try a combover or hats, rugs, etc.

Cut your hair short and accept it. Don't worry about the ladies -- despite "common knowledge" baldness is not a problem for most women. Many women actually like the Mr. Clean look =P

I don't look good with short short hair. I've done it. The spanish is appropriate given that it's my abuelo's hairline (my mother's cuban) that I'm inheriting.

So apparently no one here has used the pills or the laser comb. Aii.

Maaaaaaaaaaaan sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

Gray was hard for me to accept, only a couple here and there, not enough to keep me from getting carded, just enough for me to know it's there.

Can't wait until I no longer look like a teenager so I can go into Truck stops without fearing for my male virginity.
