I have grown my hair back several times. I usually go for a sharp flattop. I never made it last a couple of months before taking the razor to my head. Part of it is the white hair, I think it makes me look so old. I also get a dermatitis condition on the back of my head that completely goes away if I shave daily.

Bottom line, I love sporting a shaved head. Everyone I know thinks it looks good on me, and I enjoy the morning routine of shaving. No plans of growing hair again.
Bald by choice, and loving it!

Dermatitis is different kinds of skin issues like sebhoria, eczema, etc.

After being bald (first by choice, and then by nature), I went and got myself a hair system... I like myself with hair. I don't know how long I can keep it up, it's a lot of care and maintenance.

When I shaved I had alopecia. And now I have no choice but to return to growth.

I grow it back every no and then - and as soon as I get through the hell of growing it back out and get my beloved Flattop back - then I see a beautiful shaved head and I miss it!

We always want what we don't have!

Thanks... I am having fun with it.

For me, it's not "hiding my baldness", it's just having the option to have hair, and play with it.

:)

The reactions have been... AMAZING.

People are shocked.

I am loving it

I grow my hair out for 3/4 months at a time and usually maintain a high fade/longer on top look. My hairline has started receding a fair bit though to the point it has drawn the odd comment.  Surprising as my dad hasn't lost any hair well into his 50s but am I right it's more linked to your mother's genes passed on from her father? My grandad and his brothers all experienced significant hair loss, some at earlier ages and to different degrees. My uncles on my mum's side all have it too. So I guess that's where it's from?

So I have a choice at this point, have it long-ish so people don't notice or clean shaven. Buzzcuts don't work so well at this point, shaved looks cleaner and more professional and feels cooler in the summer.
