Me in 2013. First photo with buzzcut.
Around New Year's Eve 2016 / 2017. Three years ago.
You don't look bad bald bro. But you need to gain some muscle mass and get a tan though.
I don't think gaining muscle is the answer to his problems, and getting tanned is bad for your skin long term. Better to be pale and keep your skin looking younger while you age than getting a tan, im very pale and thought about sunbeds etc but decided against them. Tried a few supplements that are supposed to give you tanned looking skin plus fake tan, but the supplements didn't work and the fake stuff just looks stupid. There are extreme regimens that will help him regain his hair back if he doesn't mind the sides. But yeah i agree, i think he doesn't look too bad bald. I'd look like an alien but he suits it i think.
Heino is good looking however.. he would look 10x better with hair (pretty much ANYONE looks better with hair). I agree that he does manage to pull off the ultra short buzz cut well -- if he isn't making any gains on the big 3 (+derma rolling) time to make the switch to Duta and perhaps a low dosage of oral minoxidil.
Well, I think that the bald look mostly suits older men. If you are young and have a immaculate baby face, then bald head in most cases looks somewhat wrong. Look at Bruce Willis as a young guy. He would have looked absolutely stupid with a bald head: http://www.snakkle.com/wp-content/u...young-1973-expendables-2-2012-photo-split.jpg
The problem is also, that it makes you look older, especially when you are young. With hair I always been asked for my ID when buying beer, then with buzzcut I was regularly asked at university if I am still a student, because I look(ed) older than other full-haired students.... ^^
I think that the bald look is something that I could pull off when being 50 or something, but I feel too young for "baldness"... (surprise surprise ^^)
Yes, I am a f*****g ectomorph. Very difficult for me to gain any weight. I am trying the WKM plan, but it is ultimately hard work. One week of illness and the gained weight is lost again...
I am on Minoxidil topical 2,5% since Oktober 2019. It's been 3 months and I am already beginning to see good results (hair is getting darker, denser and many new hairs are emerging @ temples). I will be upping to 5% very soon.
I've added topical Finasteride in January 2020. I also will add Dermarolling soon.
Been taking Ketoconazole shampoo (2%) for years...
To early to tell, but I am quite optimistic. It will take some time to decide wehter it's worth it or not. At least 6 months, perhaps 12 months. Depends....
Where are you getting topical finasteride? compounding pharmacy? I'm about to quit ketoconazole again, that sh*t is frying my hair. Are you against the idea of taking oral finasteride?
I am buying Proscar (5mg) and making a solution out of it (PG, ethanol, water). I filter the tablet-fillers...
I was thinking about oral Finasteride, but am hesitant because I've had Depression in the past. Probably not a good idea to f*** around with my neurosteroids...
That's why I want to keep serum DHT supression minimal...
My hair looks like sh*t after Ketoconazole. I use a hair conditioner to counter that effect. Not sure if it helps...
Edit: But they say that it's good for scalp micro flora, so I take it...
One of my other problems is that I am not that tall... only 5'9". Median where I live is 6'0"
skip finasteride altogether and go for the real big boy (Duta), buy a bottle of Combodart/Duodart (Duta) and use that instead (no need to crush it either since it's powder as opposed to Avodart which is a gelatinous capsule)
It's difficult to come by in Germany. Dutasteride isn't approved for male pattern hair loss in Germany. So I would have to buy it from the "black market".
Go to the Poland my good man -- after all Avodart and Duodart is made there
Yes, I am of Polish descent and know the language, so might be worth a try :=D
That's Christmas 2013, afair. That person on the right is my brother. He is 3 years younger. He puts on an annoyed look ^^
Seems that I am a great Minoxidil responder. *wow*
3 months on 2,5% minoxidil and hair is getting denser, darker, new hair is growing at the front and temples. And that's just 2,5%. I'll be upping soon. And I have added topical Finasteride at the beginning of January.
