    I'll be a "billiard-dome" very soon! Doesn't really bother me. Anybody else here at HTF losin' the ol' head foliage? And how do you feel about it? [​IMG]
    If you are going bald, I'm curious to know how many of you plan to do something about it (or perhaps you've taken action already), i.e. hair weaves, transplants, et al??
    Does Mr. Popeil still make that "spray-on hair" product?? [​IMG] (Now who among you would DARE to use that stuff?!) [​IMG]

    Runs in the family here. I am 20 and I think I notice a bit of thinning, but it could just be me being paranoid (probably is).

    If it happens, I vow to never in my life comb over. I will just shave it ALL off.

    I'm not going bald, but the ol' hairline is receding pretty fast. I'm not too worried about it yet, but I'll seriously freak out if I start growing a tremendous amount of back hair. I saw a guy one day in a tank-top, and you would swear he had on a sweater. Gross.

    Not exactly balding, but it started to get so thin I did indeed shave very close. It only has to grow out a few millimeters and it starts to get obvious what is happening...

    I was getting thin on top and shaved it all off. I look much better than when I had a full head of hair and am getting lucky a hell of a lot more, too.

    I'm starting to thin a little at the front and I'm seriously considering shaving it clean. The only thing is I'm not sure if I have a good shaped head and would it look stupid shaved clean. I've considered using Rogaine or something like that even though when I was younger(pre-thinning) I swore that I would never use it and go gracefully. Since it's summer I think it is a perfect excuse to try the bald look.

    I haven't paid for a haircut in about 5 years [​IMG] . I just set the "clippers" to 0 once a week, and go to town. In a way it's comforting knowing that this is "my look" for the rest of my life (I'm only 32).
    It used to bother me, but not anymore. I have a "good head" and still do all right with the ladies. I also have the "compensating" go-tee going for me [​IMG] .
    I shaved my head (with a razor) only once, and it didn't work for me at all. I looked like someone from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Just a "slight" stubble seems to do it for me. NO COMB-OVERS, EVER!!!!!!!!!!!
    Do I wish I wasn't going bald? certainly. Am I going to spend money to grow pubic hair out of my scalp? NO! Am I going to sacrifice [​IMG] for hair? HELL NO!!!!

    Propecia Propecia Propecia. Or if you don't want the monthly expense just shave it all off and lift weights. Bald and muscles seems to be popular with women from what I've seen.

    Shave it off or wear it very closely cropped ala Patrick Stewart. If you let it grow out, you'll look like Larry Fine.

    I remember the days that they had to thin my hair with those special scissors....ah, memories..my hair is still the same in the front and sides, but is thinning in back.

    I'm just letting it go, and keeping it short......I have a friend who uses propecia, and he began having troubles....um...performing. :b I don't need to add that to my resume.

    My hair has thinned a bit since I was younger, but it seems to have stopped for now. Fortunately, I still have full coverage for the time being.

    However, if it goes, I'm going bald with dignity and shaving my head. I personally don't care for the "ring around the head" look.
