Im 34.. and never in a million years did I expect to loose it like this at this age. It sucks!! I had this nice shiny patch on my dome last summer, but have been using rogaine and it freikin WORKS!! I was highly skeptical.

Anyone else battling the bald? Anything work better than rogaine/minoxodyl?
thanks... all comments/rants welcome!!

**edit** I dont have pics of my patch last summer, my HD crashed since and lost em.

It wouldnt really bother me that much... except the sunburn is a killer, and I cant listen to my MS2 with my scalp soaking in minoxodyl.

Oh wow...that sucks very badly.

Well, my idol is bald too, as seen (or not) in my ava. So if baldness fits you...it's not that bad.

Ya I bet that sunburn would hurt pretty bad. You can always got back to your "Kramer Mod" ksc-75s. But that would make you miss the MS2is.

Not to sound racist, but I didn't think asian people suffered from that. (I'm asian too) Most of the ones I know still have a lot, even in their old age. I'm just glad my mom and dad still have a good amt of nice black hair. (they're in their 50s) I used to fear this a bit too when I was a kid, I have a bigger forehead than most people, and I could swear my hairline was receding. That said, my head looks better now than it did a few years ago, strange.

All my idols have almost perfect hairlines

I think the best solution is hair transplant. They put the hairs from the back of your head that are immune to the hormone that causes the balding in men and transplant it to the thinned areas. In the future they'll clone these hairs that are at the back of your head and then everyone can replace all your hairs with these clones

A lot of indian people have really good hairlines i've noticed even at an old age. I seen someone related to my dad with a hairline like a 10 year old and must of been 70+ !

I hope I don't go bald!

I feel sorry for teenagers (not me!) that have receding hairlines

LOL.

I've hit 30, and so far no signs of balding. I really don't think it would bother me anyway. If I started balding, I would just close crop it. Besides, I think some guys pull of balding fairly good (not talking about those guys that go completely bald on top and grow the sides long ie "Frasier"). It's all in the swagger.

I believe that I heard something about the MPB gene skipping a generation. My Grandfather was bald, my Father is not. Now both my brother and I have MPB. I'm 6'7" tall so what do I care. My Brother is 5'10" and he has actually started shaving his head.

When do you need to accept the fact that you are old and that you will die soon? A few years ago I was out with my GF on a sunny day so we grabbed the sunscreen. I put it on her, and then she puts it on me, she doesn't skip a beat she smears it right on the top of my head. It didn't bother her but it sort of shocked me.

If I had my druthers* I wouldn't be going bald, but I really don't care enough to go thru using Rogain or Surgery. The one thing that I don't like is; I use to wear my hair long. Now I don't, men loosing their hair who attempt to compensate by wearing long hair look like loosers. Now I go short haired to keep from appearing to be one of the loosers who are attempting to hide or compensate for their going bald.

*What the hell are "Druthers" and why would we want them?

Yep, its been ongoing since my early 20's (once i cut my long hair!).

Regardless, i have turned to rogaine and i did grow one long hair...on my right ear.

Unfortunately, baldness runs in the family, especially my father's side where all the men are bald, bald, bald.

I imagine in another 10 years i'll be really bald like them too. Damnit...
