My combover is giving "Charlie Brown hair squiggle" vibes, What should I do?

Cut your hair shorter and shorter with each haircut. Once it's down to crewcut level, have an honest talk with your barber about whether you should just wear what you have short, or start shaving it all off. I guarantee you'll get more respect for this than any kind of "cure" or coverup "system." And wear an age-appropriate hat when you're outdoors to prevent skin cancer. I followed the first part of the advice, but not the second and now I have had three skin cancer operations plus a dozen or more pre-cancerous thing frozen off. If there was an honest-to-god baldness cure, I'd take it. But there isn't one, and nothing attracts attention to your hairline like attempts to fool the world.

I've used Minoxidil 5% for years. It's cheap, it's effective. It's part of my morning routine. I look like me again.

Headscarves are absolutely terrific, honestly.

I'm losing my temples (unevenly) and my crown. I've been buzzing it on a 2 and I'm mostly happy with it. I'm contemplating Bic'ing it.

No worries. An anesthetized marmoset will sleep on your head for days.

What R1 said. I found as I lost hair I started spending more on barber visits just to keep what was left looking decent. He's also right about sun damage. I'm getting hyperpigmentation spots, hopefully won't get skin cancer.

Accept what is and work on what you can improve: skin care, diet (eating healthy foods really does help with a glowing, healthy complexion), exercise/working out, and your mind.

Confidence and being comfortable being yourself out in the world is way more sexy than a head of hair.

Build up your shoulders, pecs, and arms.

There are plenty of us perverts into bald guys.

Isn’t it a hassle to have a bald head?

by Anonymousreply 9February 9, 2024 11:03 AM

R3, what does that entail? I’m assuming you have to massage it into your scalp? What happens when you sweat?

No, R9. It is actually easier than having a head off hair. You buzz with an electric razor in the morning, moisturizer, sun screen, repeat.

There’s a subreddit, maybe /bald where people post pics of themselves and ask the crowd if it’s time to shave the remains off.

The before and after pics are often remarkable. People are quite supportive of taking the plunge.

Tell people you have alopecia. Then get your husband to punch out a comic.
