Personally I would go with shave it all off, I never found anything that helped me when I started to go. My bald patch, funnily, was the side of my head, above my right temple, I shaved it all off saying if I was going to go bald it's going to be on my terms, no combover, no toupee.

Might have to do with environment. If you live in a city center, all the smog can really be bad for your hair unless you wash it daily. Also, the water you're consuming and bathing with, it it contains too many salts or minerals. Herbs can encourage hair growth. Look for a shampoo with Amla, Ritha, Ginseng and Henna. Applying coconut oil also prevents hair fall. And get regular haircuts to ensure growth of new healthy hair.

My theory? Those who bald are further along on the evolutionary scale. What is hair anyway for a man? A nuisance!!

Seriously, if it is happening, not much you can do about it. As others have said, embrace it. You will look more silly if you do not at the end of the day.

Go and see a specialist. There are many causes of premature baldness, and the treatment you use will depend on the cause.

As it happens, someone I know is currently marketing a new, stem-cell derived, peptide based hair treatment. She will be bringing it to the UK, hopefully later this year.

I would start to rock the shaved head look so everyone you know gets used to it,because theres no way to stop your baldness or make it grow back. you can use rogain,some will new hair will grow,but once you stop,it will all fall out. the only thing you can do is get a hair transplant when a lot of your hair falls out.

they actually have this way to do transplants where they don't have to cut out a huge section from your scalp to get the hair,instead they can take out hair by hair with a special tool and plant it elsewhere. its more expensive,but its worth it,especially if you don't need too too much hair.

Hi, I'm 18 and seem to be balding mostly at the top-back bit of my head. I already suffer with anxiety/low confidence issues. I believe my balding may be male pattern baldness (MPB).

I heard the NHS won't prescribe any treatment and I also can't afford to buy any treatment. Is there any home remedies for this?

From today I'm going to start eating 5 fruit/veg a day, get to bed by 12 every night, exercise everyday and eat more healthily.

Please help.

Does it run in your family? I believe its the mothers side you need to look at.

As far as being bald goes, I started to lose my hair in my mid 20s. Bothered me at first but now it doesnt. I just cut it really short and it looks good. Dont have to buy a comb ever again and a few other products. So if going blad and its not a medical issue like stress, then I would just accept it and not let it bother it. Its a little cooler in the winter, but its bearable. :)

I used to try and keep it long but that only worked and looked good for a while. Do yourself a favor, no comb over looks like Mr. Trump and no cheap fixes either. Accept it, or pay a ton to get it professionally fixed.

I hate to say it, and will be mocked, but massaging your own semen into your scalp actually promotes the hormones to help follicles activate.

Yes, it's sick, yes it seems weird, but yes it works.

Could be worse, I started going silver grey when I was 16. I'll be 39 this year and have a salt/pepper look if I keep my hair shaved to 1/4" but if I grow it out, full blown silver hair.

My Dad was bald and he embraced it quite well. Of course, he made jokes about it like "Bald guys are the first to know when it rains", "I'm not bald, it's my solar panel for my sex machine"...corny things like that.

I think a lot of people look good bald and 'wear' it well. I know I am looking down that road myself (unless that gene skipped me), and when I face that reality, then I know I will be stocking up on sunscreen for that. I think a sunburn on your bald head would be pretty bad. :huh:

I've had a receding hairline and growing bald spot since my early 20s and I started getting grey hair when I was 14, in my case it was a combination of genetics and stress, but I've learned to deal with it, and there are lots of women who find bald men sexy :p

So my suggestion, don't bother with a combover, it NEVER looks good...EVER! If you can afford hair transplants, go for it, but otherwise, just learn to deal with it, find a hairstyle that looks good on you and is easy to manage and you'll be fine.

I'm 22, and it started happening to me at 17. Except it's receding rather than balding at the top. Sucks. I used to have an amazing full head of hair that I wish I could go back to. I get so frustrated when I see some 70 year old with more hair than I have, lol. But oh well. Eventually I guess we'll have to shave it off. Sorry man.

Shave it off and embrace thw baldness

This. Tell your hair to **** off and go bald. I did and women like it :) Plus no more paying for haircuts and dealing with effed up hair in the morning.
