dude. don't worry about it. the more you try to "fix" it, the worse it looks.

just keep your hair cropped short, maybe just start shaving it. oi! oi!

and i used to work with a dude that was like Mr 3 when he hit 20. Rogaine didn't work for him either.

04-04-2005, 09:31 PM
thanks man, i hear what youre sayin

enjoisey told me to do the same thing about shaving my head. he's bald and it looks good with him but i dunno.... i did it once & my dome felt like a big teste. i dont mind being a dickhead, but a ballhead is something diff. at least i dont have any dents in my dome.

people are dying right now, i shouldnt be stressin over this.

welcome to my world bro. I've looked at photos of myself from just a year ago. and its still a big diff. I dont think its genetics, cause my dad didn't start to thin till his mid - late 40s... my brother is fine....for me it has everythinig to do with stress, and diet. I skip meals.. stress out and lose weight. my health is shit right not. my hair colour has changed from black to almost a medium brown. and I'm seeing greys.. and I'm only 25 dude.. hang in there. honestly, this is the kinda shit that really brings the self esteem down for guys...

but I guess it helps that I'm black, and usualy keep my hair short. I tried growin out befor, but ... uh... I don't think I'll be doin that again anytime soon.... here's something that might help...

Hair Loss Help- Supplements And Nutrition

If your hair is thinning or falling out, you're likely to seek out hair loss help in one form or another. Hormones, DHT blockers, growth stimulators, SODs and antiandrogens are medically-oriented and often effective methods of hair loss help. But is there anything you can do on a more basic level combat hair loss and even encourage hair to regrow? The answer is a resounding yes. By making a few simple changes in your life, you'll be on the way to thicker, healthier hair. Two of the major actions you take are related to nutritional supplements and herbs. Here's some information on both.

An easy first step you can take for hair loss help is to eat a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Look for foods and nutritional supplements that include biotin, silicon, copper and zinc. Also important are essential fatty acids, B-vitamins, vitamin C, and vitamin E. In addition, there are herbs that may prove beneficial. Taken together, these substances can provide an optimal environment for hair growth.

Biotin is essential for hair health and may actually help prevent hair loss. Good sources of biotin are brown rice, soy products, lentils, oats and sunflower seeds. For more hair loss help, silicon aids in hair strength. Oats, leafy green vegetables, bell peppers, soy products and brown rice are foods rich in silicon. Zinc enhances the immune function and may help your body fight off any condition that causes hair loss due to an immune reaction. Nuts and seeds contain zinc, especially pecans, peanuts and sunflower seeds. Other zinc-rich foods are fish, oysters, sardines, seafood, lima beans, mushrooms and egg yolk. Copper deficiency can cause osteoporosis, anemia and baldness. Teamed with zinc, copper may help hair to grow. Foods high in copper include barley, beans avocado, radishes, broccoli, beets, almonds and other nuts, salmon and seafood.

Essential fatty acids are needed for good hair texture and to prevent brittleness and dryness. Fish are the best sources, especially salmon. B-vitamins are important for hair growth. Many foods contain B-vitamins including eggs, whole grains, fish, tomatoes, potatoes, soybeans, dates, raisins, prunes, carrots, spinach, avocados, leafy greens and poultry. Vitamin C will aid in scalp circulation. For vitamin C, eat citrus fruits, strawberries, asparagus, avocados, pineapple, radishes, spinach, mustard greens, watercress and spinach. Like vitamin C, vitamin E helps circulation in the scalp. Foods that contain vitamin E are cold-pressed vegetable oils, dark green leafy vegetables, soybeans, sweet potatoes, watercress, dried beans and peas, and wheat germ. Hair loss help is as close as your refrigerator, if you choose foods high in these vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

Hair loss help can also come in the form of herbs. The herb horsetail is a good source of silica. Zinc can be found in chamomile, eyebright, fennel, nettle, parsley and wild yam. Many herbs contain B-vitamins including chamomile, eyebright, fennel, nettle, oat straw, parsley and peppermint. For vitamin C, look to chamomile, eyebright, fennel, nettle, oat straw, rose hips and peppermint. Herbs that contain vitamin E include flaxseed, nettle, oat straw, raspberry leaf and rose hips.

You should always see your doctor about hair loss because there might be a medical reason like diabetes or thyroid imbalance that's causing it. But hair loss help in the form of good nutrition and nutritional supplements will compliment any other treatment you may undertake.

hey guys, my dingaling jokes aside (which i realize was a stupid thing to say, even to make light of the situation), please don't feel bad about thinning hair. rocking a cropped or bald dome says a lot about your confidence, and ladies love that shit.

04-05-2005, 05:12 AM
yeah, but what if you don't have that confidence

and your hair falls out anyways?

cool, thanks. and it's not so much that i feel bad about it but i think it has more to deal with it being a physically obvious reminder that im getting old. it somehow insinuates im supposed to be an adult (i.e. live according to a whole diff set of rules) and start *gulp* growing up

I don't know if helps, but getting older is not really a bad thing. The older you get, the better you know your way around the world, the more friends of all ages you have who teach you about cool music & art, the better you are in bed, the more you've practised your artistic skills, the longer you've loved your friends and family -- it's great having all the energy & inventiveness of youth, but a lot of young people are also broke, confused, dependent on their families, and so forth.

From what I know about you, it's highly doubtful that you'll lose any of your energy or passion, to use a kind of icky word.

I don't know, I'm weird. I really love my grey hair.

Zaius
04-05-2005, 08:05 AM
yeah, obvious signs of maturity are probably a good thing. I just turned 40 and most people think i'm in my 20's. I think it's contributed to my extended bachelorhood. My mom's still waiting on the whole Marriage and Kids thing.....I think she's getting impatient.


Grey rocks, I went grey in my early 20's.

nice words, thanks for reminding me of things i often take for granted and lose sight of cause i can get so caught up in the now. i remember you posting a while ago of how you didnt start really enjoying/loving life until you hit 30. i think of that often when i start bumming out on getting older.


and i agree grey is good! i started going grey in my late-teens and have so much now i have a salt n pepper thing going on that i kind of like.

It happens to us all. I turned 30 last year and I do notice that my hair is a little thinner than it was. All my male relatives still have hair though, it just goes grey before they hit 40. I guess that's what in store for me, and I am not bothered in the slightest. I'll just get a velvet-collared crombie, switch to smoking cigars and play up to that 'distinguished Brit' thing.

He had a bit of hair growing, he was wearing a baseball cap, and I said "hey, you have hair." He just looked at me, almost like he was a scared old person, and said, in that unmistakable accent, "well, that's a strange thing to say." And then he got off the elevator.

^ True. He can react however he wants, but I thought it was a strange reaction. If I saw Richard Simmons on an elevator and I said to him, in a friendly way, "hey, you're wearing jeans." If I said that, I would think it sort of strange if he really didn't understand why a person might say that to him.
