Baldness? I should worry.

Still have a good head of the stuff even though I have turned seventy and thanks I suppose my inherited genes. Dad, and both Granddads all kept their locks right up until the end.

Mind you, I've kept my bonce close cropped for nigh on fifty years so either way I'd not worry if I did start to lose it - I'd just carry out a pre-emptive strike....... or wear a hat! 

No Bobby Charlton comb over for me. Wink

So long as you keep a hat on, nobody'll notice, and you'll save money on shampoo... Funny

Does it increase on nights with a full moon?

No, just first thing in the morning as I'm waking up. Roll_eyes

Re: Baldness? I should worry.

I always laugh at the advert for the hair loss clinic, "As an actor, I really need my hair ...". Oh yeah, because there are no bald actors!

I have to admit, I really don't see what the issue is. OK, at 58, I still have hair (slightly higher forehead than when I was 20, but hey), but if you really need a full head of hair to have any confidence in yourself, then your hairline isn't the problem.

@John_Hull it`s not a receding hairline..... perhaps your brain is getting bigger, and needs a bigger "shed" ! ! ! !  Cheesy

Re: Baldness? I should worry.

My hair grows like mad under normal circumstances but due to a common problem in men of my age I have to take finasteride a medication that is used to encourage hair growth.

Costs me a fortune for frequent visits to the barbers, there is no justice in the world, wish I was bald.

@ffox

That's an old wives tale about testosterone, and one circulated by those with little up top. Wink
