Should I Embrace Going Bald or Fight Hair Loss

Several men including celebrities have embraced going bald, but you can fight it if you enjoy having a full head of hair. Hair loss usually starts off slow and can begin as early as twenty years old. It usually starts with thinning followed by a receding hairline or balding on the crown. Male pattern baldness affects thousands of men each year and with several hair restoration options available, you don’t have to accept balding if you don’t want to.

How To Embrace Going Bald

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with embracing going bald, as long as you are able to accept these changes because they can become permanent. Thinning and/or balding can be physically and mentally tough on a man in the beginning stages because hair loss is typically a sign of aging. It is also common for men to feel like they’ll be less attractive once they go bald.

If you do choose to accept these changes and are happy about your decision, remember that there are several celebrities and athletes who have embraced going bald who are very attractive. Call it “The Rock” effect, but studies show that bald men are perceived to be more powerful and strong by people around them.

Stop Obsessing Over Your Hairline

Did you know that about half of all men experience hair loss before the age of 50? Obsessing over your hairline and comparing yourself to others is just going to make you feel more self-conscious.

If you’re planning on embracing going bald, stop trying to cover up your bald spots. Covering bald spots or thinning areas by growing longer hair can make your hair look thinner. Try a shorter hairstyle or even consider shaving your head, both make bald spots seem less obvious. Another way to offset hair loss is with growing facial hair. Facial hair can balance your natural features.

Embrace your baldness by:

  • Accepting new changes
  • Reduce self-consciousness
  • Learn to be happy with your decision
  • Keep a short hairstyle or shave your head completely
  • Grow facial hair

Hair restoration has evolved over the years and now there are several options depending on the severity of hair loss for each individual. Hair transplant surgery is the most invasive hair restoration option that requires minimal downtime.
