    Just Like My Father

    and he was my hero when i was a little boy.  i wanted to be just like him, though maybe not quite to the point of being bald.i always knew it might happen, and it was no great tragedy when it did.

    Anyone Have Tips?

    I have been balding for about a year now, I am pretty sure it has a great deal to do with stress and a bad diet. If anyone has any tips or simple changes that they have made that have worked for altering either of these I would appreciate it if you would either comment or hit me...

    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.

    Baldness And Confidence

    If you are losing your hair as a man in your early twenties, then this might mean that you have noticed first signs even before that. And however standards of beauty have changed over the years, it really drags you down. I spent years avoiding mirrors whenever possible because I...

    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...

    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 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
