Dealing with hairloss bitterness to those who shave
« on: February 18, 2016, 02:05:08 PM »
I  took a break from my study and did a nose poke online around other hair forums. The difference in confidence between men who have accepted and decided to shave and those who are fighting nature everyday is HUGE!! Alot of the guys seemed to have huge bitterness and resentment to the members of this forum for shaving and moving on with life while they pop propecia spray rogaine and worry about money for TH. The difference really surprised me probably because i have forgotten since i shaved my head about those insecure worries . You can't fight mother nature .Shaving my head was the best treatment for baldness and costs nothing.!!

I agree. I went to baldtruthtalk a few times and those guys are acting as if their life is over because of hairloss. It would be funny if it weren't so sad.

Every now and again, I will look at one of those types of boards.

I always get a chuckle when one of their members complains that we here at SBG are too happy.

I had a look on that forum, oh dear, there are some genuinely stressed out people on there...worried about their hair....or lack of it....simple answer....shave the rest off! Instant relief, no more worrying about people noticing, or swimming, sweating, or how much hair spray to use... Thank whoever you pray to, that isn't my life...what has changed since I shaved my noggin? Nothing!

Its their bitterness to guys who shaved  their heads  that amazed me !!! Open hostility to people who don't want to be a slave to expensive and ultimately futile hair products !!!

I always get stares from guys who are balding... the worst are the ones with the "wigs" who catch me looking at their fake hairline!

Great post. I know a lot of people that really should read this. Your mindset about the things you're going through really plays a huge role in how you handle the situation. I know some people who are really depressed about their hair loss and don't even want to leave their house. I don't know how you can live like that. Just shaving it off and accepting it is much less expensive and stress free.

One thing I notice here in Israel, the HUGE amount of guys who shave their heads, or wear VERY close buzzcuts. One reason, the heat. Another reason, baldness. Many guys here go bald, and bald young. One of the major contributing factors is stress! Very tough army service, leads to huge amounts of stress for these very young guys. After the army, most folks double up on university classes and work full time, so even more stress.

 I have been running into men in their 20s who are already very visibly balding. Since hair replacement is very expensive, and not very practical in steamy climates, most guys just shave it.

As one of the guys who underwent an SMP procedure last year (it was to conceal some scars and not due to the balding which didn't bother me in the first place). I was angry at those guys for a while. But after I did the procedure, I didn't want to become one of those "pot meet kettle" people, and it was a big plus that the members here were pretty understanding and accepting when I announced it. That said, everyone has their own way of dealing with hairloss, and I'm not going to knock the next guy for dealing with his hairloss even if I don't necessarily agree with it. Personally if EVERY balding man shaved, it would kind of take the fun out of head shaving, however, those who elect to have surgery and wigs should focus more on what is the best wig and not on being bitter to those who shave and/or simply do nothing. FWIW, there was a website dedicated to those who were MPB and proud, but it has been removed from the internet.
Even when the d is removed, the devil is still evil.

Absolutely spot on mate and i agree 100% with your statement. Just the thing that puzzled me was some of the guys on the forum seemed to have a lot of anger/ Bitterness for those of us who accepted the card mother nature dealt us. Apparently you cant be happy and bald at the same time !!
