    Has anyone tried any of the various anti-balding systems?

    I am rapidly thinning and have taken to shaving my head down to 1. A pretty good solution except in the summer where you have to wear a hat all the time or get a burnt head.

    Thinking about trying minoxidil, but not crazy about the possibility of sexual side effects. It would kind of defeat the whole purpose. What good is hair if you can't bang?

    strippers rub their titties on bald heads.

    They rub their tits in my face regardless.

    I can't help with the balding... but I also shave my head and just put sunscreen on before I go outside.

    Embrace and accept. Just make sure your fuck-game is good and the girl you're with won't care, and the girls your not with will smell the high self confidence regardless.

    just shave it.
    nothing worse than a dude who is bald 'trying' to have hair.

    i don't really think any chicks mind bald heads... at least i don't.

    great advice

    and acheron LOL DYING

    Me, I shave it down via clippers, chicks dig it, makes mongo look tough.

    There are products out there via a perscription, but have drawbacks, ie Propecia.

    I'm guilty of laziness where I won't shave my head for a couple of weeks or more. I can easily admit that it's NOT sexy at all. I usually go bare metal on the clippers...

    How often do people shave their heads? Once a week? Once every other week?

    I shave probably more than most, maybe twice, three times a week

    Same here!!

    Only thing I dislike about my shaved head is I'm FREEZING in the winter, and as mentioned, terrified of sunburn in the summer.
    If you've ever experienced a burn on the top of your noggin' you'd understand why. It's friggin painful.

    oh lord, tell me about it, over the weekend I soaked the head with sunscreen, now tanned up there, but I was lucky given the amount of sun and fun.

    Maybe I need to re-evaluate my head shaving policies and do it at least once a week.

    I keep it to every 4-5 days, otherwise it stops having the crisp just shaved look. Lowest setting on my own pair of clippers. Luckily I have an old school bathroom with the side mirrors that let you see your whole head.

    I find when the head is short you can't have stubble, otherwise it just looks like you have a blurry head.

    I bic my head every 2-3 days. Being bald isn't so bad.....i've always done well in the romance department despite being a bald, beer gut, back hair bastard.

    Things on top are certainly not as lush as they used to be. I have never shaved my head though, and am rather attached to my trimmed beard/stubble, and the last thing I want to do is have the same length all over, because I think that would look whack. For now, I'm just keeping it rather short on top, with the sides shaved right down and tapered up. I figure with the declining real estate up there, I might as well enjoy what I have for now, until shaving becomes an absolute neccessity.

    Friend of mine was visibly thinning and started on propecia and now he's not visibly thinning. I was impressed but I believe he also uses cialis. There's a pill for everything! Personally, I couldn't be bothered. Now I'm saving money on haircuts, hair pastes, shampoos. I also save time in the morning stylin. Even if i had thick hair i'd still use the clippers.

    bruce williiiiiiiiis.

    i also don't mind baldness. it's badass.

    i just want to encourage all you guys though to use sunblock on your nogs. my dad has been shaving his head for 30 years. he works outdoors in the summer and has been wearing a hat for the last few years, but prior to that, almost never wore sunblock, despite our continuous nagging for him to protect himself. within the last couple of years, he has had multiple malignant deposits removed from his scalp.

    i'm happy they have been removed, but he's done alot of sun damage to that round coconut of his.

    Not going bald, but I just got of a 4 year stint of shaving my head down to #1 purely for the convenience and savings of it all.

    I shaved my head every friday after work. Freshly shorn for the weekend.
