Yes, baldness may be in your future, but this doesn’t mean you can’t still look good. On the contrary, some men actually rock the bald look (think The Rock Dwayne Johnson or Jason Statham)!
In addition, this may be a way to redefine yourself and start a new chapter in your life. So, if you’re scared that your thinning locks will soon leave you, here are a few tips to help you prepare.
#1: Use High-Quality Products
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, around half of all men over the age of 50 will suffer the effects of male pattern baldness to some extent. As such, there’s no wonder that there is an entire industry dedicated to men’s hair loss products and treatments.
Of course, the industry also has some snake oil salesmen, which is why it’s important to understand there are no miraculous products out there. Some may help make the remaining hair stronger (especially if you start early) while some may help boost the growth rate (but only under certain circumstances).
In short, it’s best to discuss this with a medical professional first. They can take a look at your situation and give you a clear diagnosis. Based on it, they will be able to give you adequate treatment.
#2: Start Working Out
Or improve your current workout routine so you’ll get more fit faster. The bald fit guy look is attractive and makes you look badass even if you’re a fluffy teddy bear inside. Not to mention that being in shape also has tons of benefits for your health as you grow old.
Of course, you shouldn’t wait until the first signs of baldness to start growing muscles, but if you’re already there, why not give it a shot? You will start feeling better about your body and it will be easier to accept the fact that your head feels a bit colder now.
Quick tip: if you don’t like running or hiking by yourself, get a dog to accompany you. You’ll have a new best friend who will love you no matter what. Also, your furry friend needs to be walked and trained on a daily basis, so you won’t have any excuses to slack off!
#3: Grow a Beard
If you don’t have hair on your head, you can enjoy the one on your face a little more. Beards are back in fashion these days and guys everywhere are having a blast with various shapes, girths, and lengths.
In fact, beards are so cool that men everywhere can participate in championships! These events are organized to praise men’s originality and ingenuity when it comes to growing and styling their facial hair.
It may be difficult to imagine a life without a head full of hair, but the sooner you make a move towards improving your look, the better it would be. If you wait too long, you may get stuck in a state where you both have and don’t have hair, and this is not a flattering look on anyone.
