im norwood 4/5 lol
Have you considered a transplant?
yeh but im headed for a nw7 and im not on meds, i get sides. so hair transplant is out the question.
im just gonna wait it out for the new tech to come
and be a baldie troll in the mean time
Post pics man so we can asses your situation.
lol im a nw4/5. thats all there is to know
i am fucked my friend
Shite.... So sides were too bad then.. from finasteride and minoxidil?
sides were bad from finasteride, none from min apart from the first time i ever tried it and it made me light headed as fuck and made me want to pass out
that shit was SCARY lol
Hey bro no ones fucked we are all in this together most people think it's worse than it really is i have hope we can all become fullhead chads
I remember the light headed thing happened to me when I used the foam for the first time years back... I remember getting headaches too. It did eventually go away. It was a long time ago now though so can't say how long it lasted.
scared the fucking shit out of me
i had to lie down for a couple hours before i felt normal again
didnt touch that shit again for weeks lol
no problems since i dont think
Lets just create a fucking bald island, whole new world, where we'll hang out, drink coctails and pay for hoes to be brought to us by plane. Also we should tie brotzu to a tree and tickle him.
No, instead let's take over the world and hold the cure for baldness as a ransom for its freedom
Probably fuckers would still rather die than find a cure
Poor OP. Started a thread only to get it derailed all the way down to the very fundamental existential anxiety of this forum lol
The realism that zircon and fred are holding is simply true. Hair IS valuable. Nothing ever takes away that. You can tan and lift and dress up all you want too fell better but still doesnt compensate or replace it. Why is anyone really reading this thread if its not important anyway?
The other day, flipping through some hair transplant clinics website, it amazed me how those mega sessions on Norwood 5+ while looking so crappy with incredibly high hairlines and pathetic density on top still absolutely beats the sly/horseshoe before pics. Having some hair is almost always better than being bald. Thats the cold truth.
Some people look good shaved and wholeheartedly accept it but for most here, the rational reaction to maximize your look value on the social/professional market is simply stop it or slow it with whatever you can. But mentally it's just a torture. You are fighting a losing battle. For a substantial amount of ppl here meds are not enough to hold our hair. Knowing all the risks you take while still seeing your hair vanishing, except at a slower pace, suffering all the meanwhile. And that's assuming you can tolerate the meds in the first place.
I think what OP, who can't take meds and is not a transplant candidate just like me, is asking, is rather how do you get along with that life when all attempts fails. In that case, there's nothing wrong in coping and trying to make up for your looks for sure. But don't get delusioned. Nothing replaces hair. You can still live a life, even a happy fufilling one, but it's simply in another man's shell with your former self shattered.
well my brain is so fried, probably from the anti psychotic medication (olanzapine) I take which i started before going bald so i think it just blocks out all those really nasty thoughts
I couldn't take finasteride either, and was told I was not a candidate.
Now what? You'll just going to remain a slick NW6 loser because you're not a 40 year old NW3 on finasteride with slow hair loss that surgeons can show off on their website?
"Look, from fullhead to fullhead, he wuz a good candidate!"
Yeah really impressive, no one will notice or give a fuck.
I think people who are not bald yet don't realize the urgency you feel when you have to walk around as a NW5/6.
They're like "I'm not a candidate so I'll just let myself go bald, that's how it is!"
Wait, until, you're, bald.
Seriously, I lasted like 6 months as a slick bald man (at the age of 22).
In the summer of 2012, while being exhausted psychologically, I had to type "FUE megasession" on Google.
And then realized that yes, it existed and they could make slick bald NW6 patients thin NW2.5.
From that moment, all signs of depression and anxiety lifted and I was sure: "I'm going to do this!"
It was not an option for me, it was vital, I was going to go under the knife.
You really think you can just be like "meh not a candidate, just going to be bald I guess ".
Not in this day and age, having some hair is vital, not being bald is crucial.
Meds, multiple FUE hair transplants, temporary SMP, beard grafts, concealers, it doesn't matter how you do it: you have to maintain/recover as much hair as possible.
My brain is pretty fried from anti depressants, valium and painkillers, too bad all that has not numbed me to the negative thoughts though.... If anything, I think it's ballsed up my ability to think in a positive way lol
My condolences man, I hope you can progress from whatever issues you may have and eventually wean yourself off those drugs.
So, in response to OP's very initial concern: yes you WILL have to settle on obese/less attractive women and live a lesser life as a young baldie, period
