    Chrome Boy!

    As early as my 20's, it was obvious that I had a receding hairline.  My Dad went bald fairly early and I've inherited that.  I try to keep the hair that I do have very short.  When I visit the barber, I get them to use No. 2 clippers.  It looks neat and is easy to look after...

    I Like It

    Some people go to great extents to cover their baldness and in all cases the only person they deceive is themselves and they look so ridiculous.  In my case I love it and I wish for the rest of the hair to fell off so I do not have to shave it.

    I Am Bald And I Don't Care!

    I used to think going bald was a bad thing. Well it's been 2 years since my hair fell out completely and this time for good. It all started six years ago with a battle with cancer. I kicked its ***, but one of the side effects is hair loss during chemo. I cried when my hair first...

    Not a Big Deal

    My hair started to fall out about 4 months ago.  I took some propecia, which held off any more hair loss but recently the hair loss started up again.  I went and saw my doctor who told me that while the propecia helps, it's no panacea -- it only slows down the...

    First Denial, Then Acceptance, Now I Kind Of Like It

    I like being bald. I've embraced the masculinity of it. At age 24, I noticed my hairline retreating and it disturbed the hell out of me. I tried to rationalize it by assuming that it was only stress-related and temporary... but it just kept happening. My first step toward...
