How to Cope with Going Bald in Your 20’s and Beyond!

Most guys who have to deal with going bald earlier than most have known that the inevitable was going to happen for a long time. Often, early baldness can start as soon in life as high school, and the hair line recedes until gradually, at some point in your late 20’s, it’s at the back of your head. Early baldness is more common than you think in men, and if you look on the bright side, there are plenty of advantages to going bald, too – for one, you’ll save on shampoo, and you’ll never have to worry about having a bad hair day, either. But, if you’d like to try and hang onto your hair, there are many other solutions available (which don’t include a comb-over).

How to Cope with Going Bald in Your 20’s and Beyond!

Hair Regrowth Solutions

If you’ve just started to notice that your hair line is beginning to recede, you’re in luck as you might be able to reverse the process by using a good quality men’s hair regrowth product. These can come in the form of shampoos and other products to actually apply to your hair in order to stimulate hair growth, or you can find men’s hair regrowth products in the form of pills which you ingest. Whichever option you choose, make sure that it is good quality – remember that you get what you pay for!

Hair Transplant Surgery

If you’re getting a bit desperate and nothing seems to be working to stop or at least slow down the process of going bald, you may want to consider going for hair transplant surgery. This surgery works by moving hair that you already have into the areas which are going bald, so for the best results you should arrange to have it done whilst you still have a decent amount of hair left, rather than when you are almost or completely bald.

Shave Your Head

Hey, it’s going to happen eventually and if you’re not up for fighting going bald for the rest of your life, you might decide that simply accepting it and getting used to it is the best way forward. Some guys can actually look more attractive without any hair, so who knows, you might shave your head and realize that you actually like it better. Many guys who find that they’re losing their hair early in life turn to simply shaving it all off – not only is it easier, it hides the rest of the process of going bald.

See Your Doctor

It’s not as common, but you could be going bald due to an underlying medical condition that you’re not yet aware of. If you’ve just noticed that your hairline is receding or you have bald patches on your head, it might be worth getting checked out by your physician to make sure that it is just hair loss and that everything else with your health is OK.

For most guys, going bald early in life isn’t expected, but if it happens to you, there are plenty of things that you can do to make sure that losing your hair doesn’t mean losing your good looks.
