    Ori's Story -(27 /w pics w/o a regimen :) )

    Dont know why i made this thread since i dont use anything to stop my hair loss progression, im not planning to either, ill try to keep a follow on my hairloss here so in a few years we will see if im a good candidate for an HT.

    im 27yo, start losing at 18-19, back then the doctor who checked me said (and i remember this perfectly) "if you dont have atleast 100 hairs on your pillow each morning then your not balding" i wish id make a bet with him that if was balding i get to burn his diploma...
    at 22 i went on rogain which almost send me to the hospital due to sides, so i got on propecia, but when i started losing the morning erections i went online to read more fun facts about the drug and found out that propecia could cause gyno, impotence and you have to be on the pill for the rest of your life and it wont stop an aggresive mpb such as mine it will only slow it down, now dont get me wrong, if your on the drug and it helps you then good for you, imo tho there is no way i risk my libido, grow tits, risk losing erections, see minimal if at all improvement and pay top dollar for, idk but that equation doesnt work for me

    i believe working on an healthy body and a mindset, studying hard and trying to focus on other things is the only solution for me at this point, building multiple positive anchors that i have control over...i have my downs tho every now and then, we all know its not easy going throw life without a partner, this is the only aspect in my life i've yet to solve, but since my ex, i promised myself that in that area im not going to compromise since i see myself as a long relationship material, so not compromising + going bald sometimes means alot of this and this lol i know it will worth it.

    i digress tho, recently i've decided to buzz my head, i removed the head of the machine so i guess its no 0 (??) , i look like crap but there is nothing i can do, im a student and cant afford a HT and cant be bothered with wearing wigs right now. but a HT is definitely one on the horizon for me, 4 to 5 years from now unless they come up with a decent cure.

    after shaving:

    im not sure what NW im at, i guess nw 3 maybe higher? ... the front is gone, the sides and back are thick, the crown is okish, if it keeps falling in that pattern and stop soon then i might be a good candidate for HT i assume.. anyways thats it for now, sorry for crapy quality, these were taken with my phone camera.

    Honestly, I really think you rock that bald look man. You have got well defined facial features (jawline etc) + good facial hair. If I were you I'd let the hair aspect go and focus on clothing and your body.

    the best would always be propecia to stop any loss. if u cant use propecia i suggest revivogen, spiro and nizoral. that should be able to keep ur hair and there are ZERO side effects.

    i've never heard of spiro and revivogen, what are these and where can i get a hold of them?
    im not sure ill be using anything anytime soon, first im a poor student second, the front is already gone so no need to bother with it anymore, if im lucky enough it will stop wher eit is, if not ill get a HT when i finish school just to give the illusion of a hairline when ill buzz it down to no1 - 0 .. i think creating a hairline with fue can make a huge diffrence on ones looks. ther is no real need to do a complete head with fue as is it if you can shave and get your face framed.

    You can get them from the shop section at hairlosstalk.

    Anyway I just wanted to say your face has what it takes to pull of the bald look as you've got a really solid head shape and the facial features to pull it off.

    I feel the buzzed cut suits you better than shaving it off completely.

    Keep the stubbly beard and a really really close buzz (almost shaved) would look really good on you.

    You look great, man. Very defined features and symmetrical. Honestly, you are much better off with your head shape than many, many balding guys!

    I wouldn't even bother with treatments. You are already very receded, and you look awesome with a buzz cut and facial hair anyways. Your hair is dark, and you look pretty manly, which means that the close cropped hair suits you (in the Jason Statham sort of way). No homo. Just shave and live life, bro.
