Head Shaving / Re: Hair
« Last post by reddog on Today at 09:25:38 AM »
I've also noticed, as people have gotten used to seeing so many shaved heads, they are more comfortable making comments about my hairstyle. This week, one guy said "hey, your hat doesn't fit, no hair!".  Another guys mentioned the nice shine on my head, another told me to be careful in the sun. I'm glad we just sport a different haircut, and people accept it.

Last night, I was at a classic car cruise-in and there were about 10 of us shifting around and only one guy had a full head of hair. There were 3 of us shaved and the rest were in various stages of balding.

Now that makes a lot of sense Razor! :)  I just don't get why some guys treat it as a fate worse than death.   I used to have a bald circle at the top near the back of my head.  For some reason it grew back over the years but I never gave a thought to covering it up or using anything to make it grow back.  I dunno. ^-^  I do however, have other things on my plate so that might explain why that stuff don't bother me.

I don't understand why hair restoration is such a big industry.  I get the feeling that men are more vain then women.  I just shave it off and that's it.

If hair restoration worked as well as it is purported to, there would be very few bald men in the world at this point in time.

I hate to bring this up but if you shave your head an you think it looks terrible then just put a hat on.  Your hair will grow back faster than you might expect.

Reactions to being Bald / Re: Reactions I have gotten

That reminds me, when I was about 12yo and my dad took me to the barbershop and made me get a short crew cut. The Beatles were just getting popular as was long hair. Now, I was always somewhat opinionated and smart mouthed. My dad was receding in the front with a bald spot on the crown, and I told him "you don't want me to have long hair because you're going bald". Well, that didn't go over too good, but he didn't smack me!
Yeah, back then a man going bald was a big deal but now I see partially bald guys all over the place.  They don't seem to care much anymore.

@Razorhead , it was opposite with my dad, granted it was in the early 70's. I had shoulder length hair, and he was always bugging me to get a crew cut. He passed in 1975, but a few years ago I visited his grave with my head freshly shaved, and I asked him if he liked my haircut now. My mom passed before she saw me shaved, but I know she would have hated it.

My dad had the same haircut from the years I knew him.  He had moderately curly hair so he had his cut big but not long, meaning it didn't trail down his neck and it would puff out over his ears.  Likewise he never understood why I always liked super short haircuts, and of course my mom hates it and periodically reminds me while simultaneously telling me that she never comments on it.

Iím glad to see this forum more active during the past few days.  I enjoy the thoughts and opinions of fellow bald guys. My conversations and reading threads on here have encouraged me to continue to keep my head shaved and realize that Iím not alone in being a Sly Bald Guy!

It is nice to open up the website and see new posts.  I still open it every day, but sometimes several days pass between posts.  I still see a lot of shaved heads.  So I can only assume the since the shaving is more common now, fewer guys need to do searching on the web before they shave.
