Just out of curiosity, how would you rate yourself on a scale from one to ten?
Damn that's rough stuff to hear, but hey at least I didn't lose an extra pt from the bald situation! Idk how I've been getting laid on a semi-consistent basis, maybe charm or somethin?
Baldity bumpy bump
Any further thoughts ya baldies!?
You are not a 3.5 out of 10 you are average at the very least espically when you factor in your height and build.
I do think you look better with hair , I also think you look better without facial hair. Try to maintain your hair and go with the buzz / clean shave look imo
lmao at 3/10, dude you look fine with a buzzed head, if you are scared of hopping on finasteride due to sides you could try minoxidil with finasteride to keep the shade on top it frames your face nicely
Def scared of finasteride sides, but might give minoxidil a try if its not overly expensive. Basically just wanted to get a little third party confirmation that I'll just look like the average shaved head athletic dude if I decide to say fuck it for the time being (which I essentially already have). Also lol at the username, I have fuck tons of back hair too at 21 so I think there's a correlation.
theres an indian minoxidil with topical finasteride give that a shot minoxidil alone i doubt it will do anything than save the fluff for couple years maybe
Don't be scared of finasteride sides espically if you value your hair. I've been on it for a year and now I'm thinking of getting on duta which is a much stronger drug. finasteride really is a very weak drug , it's mostly fear mongering around it. I am someone with anxiety but even I was able to not catch the "physcological sides"
I think your hair still looks good and that you don't need to shave down yet. If you don't wanna use anything serious just use nizoral 2-3x a week, my hair texture definitely became thicker while using that and it got rid of most of my dandruff.
I would definitely not consider finasteride a "weak drug". at just 0.05mg, it cuts your serum DHT down 50% and scalp DHT up to 61.6%: http://www.jaad.org/article/S0190-9622(99)80051-6/abstract
there is a flat dose response when it comes to hairloss as seen in that study that 5mg was only marginally better than 1mg (and would definitely give more sides)
It is however a very effective drug for male pattern baldness, and probably the most effective on the market unless you can get on avodart. I would not get on avodart since it inhibits all 3 types of alpha reductase and finasteride only inhibits type 2.
i sincerely hope thats not u on the picture
Bro we're all jealous 3/10s, get with the program
This is really harsh and I wouldn't take this to heart @Lavishous. This is just one guys opinion and I don't think many people would agree. You're no David Gandy but who is? I'd say in some of the pictures you pass for above average. I could see some girls thinking you are cute.
Ahahahaha I didn't take it to heart man. Already had a pretty good understanding of where I stood attractiveness-wise before the buzz/hair loss from the collective sexual experience of highschool and college (not particularly handsome, but tall/athletic and not ugly enough for it to be a major hindrance). Just wanted to get thoughts on head-shape/hair vs. no hair/not looking like an alien.
That's cool, it's good to be able to appraise yourself in a realistic, objective way without getting too hung up on your "shortcomings".
It's just people on here can sometimes be brutally honest almost to the point of being rude (but you've probably worked that out already). It's important to take things with a pinch of salt on this site.
I was brutally honest with him when I said he looks fine with a buzzed head, I dont think it will be the same with slick bald look hence i recommended at LEAST minoxidil.
The other guy that said hes a 3 is probably too young has no idea what women look for in a man. OP you got a killer smile bro keep that fluffy shit alive on your head so you dont lose the face frame and go live a happy life
Think I might go just nizoral + low dose minoxidil until better treatments come around. Just didn't want to be walking around as a cancer patient/freak in the meantime since I decided to close buzz/shave for my own peace of mind.
I don't know about as any sort of treatment for the hair thinning, but strict nofap has improved my scalp condition/seb derm tremendously. I'll let ya know if there's any regrowth or, at least, maintenance. I do blame my severe p*rn addiction for the early ONSET of balding (at ~18 y/o), but not the phenomenon itself.
Added a little hydrocortisone cream + apple cider vinegar to help with seb derm
