To be or not be...Bald / Re: Urge for a change
« Last post by buddha on March 20, 2024, 05:19:58 PM »
Before my wife died, she had been trying to get me to grow my hair back into a ponytail. So, afterward, I tried to grow it back out. At the time I was about 65 and after about 2 months I looked at myself in the mirror and I looked like I was 90. Part of the problem was that there was no hair on top and the toilet seat was gray to white in color. That combination accentuated the cracks in my face that I believe the ladies call wrinkles.
At that point I shaved it off. I have been sometimes negligent over the ensuing years with my shaving but never more than 4-5 days.
I would not attempt this again. Now I'm 71 and I don't look a day over 70. I credit grape scraping for my youthful good looks. 8)

I can?t grow my hair out since I had it lasered, but I guess I could let the remaining little wisps go for a week or two and see what happens lol

Wow, your head looks ?Kleen?!  Great laser job!

For a lot of years, I grow on a flat top for half the year and shave my head for the other half but it?s getting more and more difficult to grow up the Flattop and also much more expensive to maintain

Then too many times I?ll grow it out for about a month to six weeks and it drives me so crazy that I just can?t stand it and have to shave it off again. 

I always come back to a clean, smooth shining dome!

Our winter (northern Virginia, USA) was fairly warm as well.  We had only two snowfalls, both in the same week and about a total of twelve days where the nighttime low was well below freezing.  The temperatures fluctuated wildly.  This week, we are under a fire watch because it's been dry, the humidity is low and the wind gusts are very high.

Here in Canada it's been one of the warmest winters on record. In Montreal the second-warmest ever. The snow is already gone in many places. It seems that it will be bad for wildfires in Canada this year.

Not here (Israel).

We have had the wettest winter on record... and it's raining now (and cold), it should be Spring.

Meh.

While we are having warm temperatures last week, this week has turned very chilly and windy.  My wife has been complaining that the temps have been bouncing around so much that it's hard to dress properly for comfort.  The winds are blowing the petals off of the cherry blossoms so that at times it looks like a mini snowstorm.

I think the answer is "yes".  I grew my hair back for about five months back in 2013, but then shaved again.  I went for laser treatments which removed the dark hair, but I had a lot of gray which doesn't respond to laser, so I occasionally wonder what I would look like if I just let my hair grow again (I never go more than about three days without shaving).  I think the curiosity is always there. 

I also think we worry a lot about other people's reactions when we change our appearance (I know I do), but in reality, people are busy with their own lives and our hairstyle barely registers in the grand scheme of things.
