I was never blessed with a mop of thick hair. My hair started to thin in my late forties and by the time I was sixty I was completely bald. My wife remarked that it was so shiny it nearly blinded her.
It bothered me at first but over time I have adjusted to the new sexy look and I am very happy to walk around any city in the world with my bald dome. I draw comfort from the fact that I am not the only bald man on the planet and more and more have accepted going bald.
It never bothered me so I am perfectly happy to walk down the town with my bald dome. BBC had a very informative article on Hair Loss read it here
Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall – I have no Hair at All
Some men manage to skate through life without losing their hair. I said earlier it did not bother me as long as my partner was happy to wake up next to an egg head in the morning. Being bald has grown on me and my family. My friends have accepted my baldness. I have accepted the new Me.
I have seen some men hanging on to the last strands of hair by swishing it over their bald spot like a turban. Let’s face it thinning hair will happen to some men in their lifetime.
The effect of seeing your crowning glory disappear on top of your head can be psychologically damaging. You can become self-conscious, depressed and perhaps lose your self-esteem.
You are still You without Your Hair
With the right mental attitude, you can accept your baldness and live a happy contented life. I think men see hair as a symbol of virility, sex appeal and lost youth. Going bald must be a nightmare as they think they have lost all those masculine attributes.
Call it vanity call it ego call it what you like I call it fear. I panicked at first when I saw my hair disappearing. It took adjustment it took time and took an awful amount of affirmations that I was going to look good without my hair. I was not going to have a meltdown.
Shave off Your Hair
Let’s face it your hair is thinning and baldness can be difficult to ignore. you may want to rethink of changing your hairstyle. I kept my hair short as possible.
One day I just grabbed the Razor and shaved off what little I had of my hair. I like the new look and so did my family. I ignored the comments some were flattering. I was told I looked like Kojak from the American crime series in the seventies.
My hair still makes an attempt to grow on the sides but I shave it off until I have a new smooth look. It actually makes me look younger and I am saving on the hairdresser.
Baldness in men is somewhat more accepted than women who are bald. I think it’s quite attractive in both sexes. Celebrities with bald heads have become a fashion trend.
Focus on Something Else
Go on a shopping spree change your wardrobe buy colourful shirts get a nice suit with some stylish ties. Its bound to raise your self esteem. Grow a beard a mustache or both.
Try anything that will take your attention away from your hair loss. Buy a hat or a cap if you still feel self-conscious. I love the Stetson hat or sometimes I wear a cap if the weather is chilly. I never go without my Panama hat when I am in a hot climate.
Consider wearing a Toupee
A toupee is a hairpiece or partial wig of natural or synthetic hair worn to cover partial baldness or for theatrical purposes.
While toupées and hairpieces are typically associated with male wearers, some women also use hairpieces to lengthen existing hair or cover a partially exposed scalp.
The desire to wear hairpieces is caused in part by a long-standing bias against balding that crosses cultures, dating to at least 3100 BC.
Toupée manufacturers’ financial results indicate that toupée use is in overall decline, due in part to alternative methods for dealing with baldness, and to greater cultural acceptance of the condition.
