hair loss

What a long way Tribe has come. From "where can I get me some MDMA" to "I'm losing my hair!" in one week. Amazing. I think it's the new board software... it's aged us all.

I've got the bruce willis/andre agassi pattern baldness thing happening but it won't get that bad for years to come...still scares the shit out of me

it's the primary reason my head is shaved 10 months out of the year:)

hahah between the mortgage-broker and maid-for-my-condo threads, I was thinking the same thing :)

Quoting the 'Metrosexual Guide to Style', a book actually within reach of my computer:

"For those with thinning hair, the rule of thumb is blissfully simple. Get over it and go short. You will not fool anyone by pouffing up what you have left to create some sort of sad illusion. It won't work. And, if you even consider a toupee, plugs or a comb-over, bear in mind you will simply end up looking like a man with a toupee, plugs or a comb-over".

— chapter 7, Good Grooming, p. 103

OMG.. I TOTALLY REMEMBER THAT MOVIE.

I saw that when i was youngish but always kept thinking it might have been part of a nightmare i had because it was such a WEIRD WEIRD freakish movie.

I dont' even remember the whole thing.

Leave it to french-canadians to make a Comedy-Adventure film that decends further into the depths of psychological thriller than the crying game ever did.

Along with some steroid stimulation use, JOse's hair seems to be doing fine.
:D

And oh yeah, he's 29! Imagine the hair that awaits you Jebac!

Hint to Jebac: Search for Jose Theodore!!

indeed.

I like men with shaved heads or super short hair, so blad is no big deal to me. A comb-over or plugs, however...:eek:

is it safe to assume that based on your extensive knowledge of propecia, that you use it yourself?
I just started... I am about 4 weeks in... my hair has been thinning out the last couple of years and I wanted to stop it... so I asked around... and this was apparently the best way to prevent it...

It takes 3 months to start working apparently... I luckily have a "slush" fund in my insurance that I can spend $500 on anything... so I figured it was worth a shot...

and this is the shit that cause Jose to have a positive test...

I inherited my dads hairline. Ive got the Phil Collins thing going, but have been shaving my head since long before I even started losing it. I get a lot of "oooo you have a perfectly shaped head for shaving" comments from women. So don't sweat it.
It sucks at first, but you get over it, especially if you have way more going for you.....which apparently you don't. So sorry.

Jokes!

wait- has anybody else noticed that the theme of this thread is that it's shameful to have thinning hair and that it must be disguised at all costs?

it's not cancer of the dick.

i think that depending on the noggin it can even make some guys look more handsome.

dude, you are FUCKED.

same shit is happening to me. if i was in my late 30's or early 40's i wouldnt mind but im 28 and.....

i always shave my head, but lately i tried to grow some hair and to my horror i've seen some fucked up lines, patches of hair missing... its not really visible but upon closer inspection..... i am getting fucking bold !

so i go to see my doctor who sends me to a specialist who tells me its cause of stress (goddamn you stress, goddamn you to hell) and tells me to try and relax and it should grow back. goddamn yuppie doctor.

my father tells me "rub some sljivovica(serbian moonshine) on your scalp before bed", he swears that back in the day his bald friend did it and it did grow back. so i did that for a while but i smelled like booze, my whole place smelled like booze and i just couldnt let it go to waste so i drank it all. so much for that idea.

my indian coworker gave me some indian shrooms and a recipe to make some cream. i did that for a while but i didnt see any results so i ate them. i didnt get no buzz but i spent some 3-4 hours on a crapper. so, it didnt work either.

my viccan/goth/"one with the universe" neighbour told me something like "blood moon goddes is angry with the man cause......" whatever. so i've been banging her for a while. no results yet, but im getting some on a regular basis and im not stressed like before (she tells me if we do this for 4 more months its gonna grow back). honestly, i think she's just bullshitting me but i dont mind.

i dont know what to tell you man. shave it all for a while????

Yes. In fact, I am quite attracted to some men with shaved heads.

And yes, this thread is completely misguided.

Propecia... its proven to prevent hairloss on the top of the head (not so much on the receding hair line)... and in some cases (80%) it helps hair grow back... you have to take it every day and once you stop... your hair falls out again... its not covered by drug plans and costs roughly $60 a month...
also, propecia is a testostorone blocker.. so yes, if you're genetically inclined and are suffering from "androgenic" hair loss then yes, it'll help but that's not the case for most people.. things like stress, exposure, etc are more common problems.

My dad's bald and my grandfather on my mom's side was also bald so it's coming my way sooner or later. I realised a couple of years ago that my hair's starting to thin, but it's honestly hardly bothered me at all.

If you can pull it off, rock the shaved head. It's the easiest solution, you're not trying to fool anyone, and it can look damn good.

IMO, I look a lot better with a freshly-cut lid than I did with anything longer, especially that stupid hippy hair I had for a couple of years. ;)
