Thumbs down Balding really is a curse

  • never know when it's going to happen
  • no real way to determine IF it will ever happen. Everyone in your family can have a full head of hair but you can still get f*cked over by great grandparents genes
  • no real way to determine what stage it's going to stop. Some guys lose all of their hair, while others only get a receding hairline
  • destroys your self confidence, even though you pretend like it doesn't
  • drops you 3-4 points on the looks scale and makes you look 10-15 years older
  • requires you to buzz/shave your head every few days or else it will be really noticeable
  • still no cure, and all the treatments suck or have lots of side effects
  • only a small percentage of guys can pull off a shaved head
  • your dad still has a full head of hair while you look like an old man

What is the evolutionary purpose behind this? It's one of the worst things that can happen to a man, appearance wise.

Go to you tube, watch Dr John Bergman, he has a videos of hair loss causes, and how to use nutrition and nutritional products to stimulate hair growth, other health topics as well, using the body's own defenses and nutrition to fight disease, and regain a healthy lifestyle.

Women get it too and my heart breaks for anyone who suffers with this. You'd think we'd have more effective treatments in this day and age.

Indeed. It's always "cure in 5 years"...

Speaking for myself? Men going bald was never something I thought was unattractive....If all a female is concerned about is the top of your head, the problem is hers.
