Don’t you think it’s funny how girls always fret over hair fall, but it’s eventually the boys who end up with a crystal ball in their heads? Most guys don’t seem to realize that they are losing hair unless someone points out their receding hair line or shows them a picture where they look really old for their age.
Hair fall is like a slow and painful death. No matter how much cash we splash on expensive anti hair fall products, we aren’t ever going to prevent the inevitable. If it makes you feel any better, even an uncompromising and resolute guy like Jason Statham couldn’t hold on to his hair.
If you’re going bald then you need to first relax and accept it as a natural aging process. Just because you’re losing your hair doesn’t mean you have to let go of your style or sense of fashion. You can be just as impressive and attractive as those with a head full of strong, smooth and thick hair.
When you begin to lose hair, you are likely to see strands of hair all over you pillows, desk, washroom floor, wash basin and towels. At this stage, you may not be able to stop the hair fall entirely but you’re surely in a position to reduce it. Set your sights on damage limitation. You can start by taking vitamin D pills which are known to enhance hair growth. You can also use a range of hair products to keep your scalp healthy and your hair thick for a longer time. As a precaution, you should be careful to not expose your head to dirt and filth. The dirtier your hair is, the more damaged it will be and the quicker it will fall off. Lastly, avoid hair products that are oil free, you don’t want your hair follicles to be blocked and damaged.
Scissors & Trimmers
With time, you will eventually notice bald patches at the centre and front parts of your scalp. You can try spreading your hair over these areas (brush your hair back) to hide the bald patches. Remember that this is only a temporary solution and you can’t cover up those bald patches forever. The hair at the sides and the back of your head will eventually appear thicker and longer. This inequality in hair density can make you look old, shabby and very unattractive. As a remedy, I suggest you to pick up the scissors and shorten the length of the hair on the sides and the back. You can also trim the hair in these areas to make hair at the centre and at the front stand out.
Having hair of the same length all over the head isn’t very pleasant to the eye. Make sure to always keep the hair at the front a couple of inches longer than the hair at the sides and the back. With that being said, be careful to not overgrow the hair at the front. The longer the hair is, the easier it is for the hair to be pulled and plucked out of your scalp.
Shave it off
When the hair loss is beyond control and you’re absolutely sure that you won’t be able to salvage a single strand of hair at the centre of your scalp, take a deep breath, pick up a razor, apply lots of shaving cream and shave your head clean. You may feel awkward and quite frankly a little naked in the beginning but trust me when I say this, a clean shaved head is way more attractive than one with sparse patches of hair all over it. A lot of bald men like to keep their heads covered with caps, hats and bandanas. If you feel uncomfortable to flaunt around your shiny little shaved head then its okay to keep it covered. However, you would appear much more classy and elegant if you could pull off a bold, unashamed and uncensored bald look.
Losing hair, even at a young age, isn’t the end of the world. In fact, most guys seem to develop a better sense of fashion after they go bald. As long as you keep your head clean and pay enough attention to your looks, a bald head isn’t going to turn you into an outdated grandpa.
