Are you ready to embrace your baldness?
Going bald is something that many men find terrifying, especially when their hair is a trademark of who they are. If this sounds like you, then you are in good company with plenty of celebs like the Rock, Stanley Tucci, Bruce Willis and more!
The interesting thing about each of these celebs? They have fully embraced their bald status and so should you! Check out our advice to help you transition to your new bald life.
Don’t Shave it All Off!
Unless you are Robert Downey Junior, choosing to shave all your hair off as soon as you notice thinning is probably not the best idea. Instead, opt for a shorter hair cut that works will any thin patches, gradually adapting your style to encompass your hairline.
Once you are at the point of no return with hair loss then you should consider lopping the rest off to match. Not sure when the right time is to make the big change? Ask your loved ones, hair dresser or friends for their opinion.
Keep Your Hair and Scalp Clean
Even when you have lost all your hair, you still need to clean your head regularly to avoid any build ups in the follicles that have remained and to ensure that you don’t get any flaky skin that looks unattractive.
The good news is that there are plenty of shampoos that you can choose from and continue to use even when you are bald, helping to give you a clean look every time you shower. If you find that your skin starts to flake even with shampooing, then try different shampoos until you find the one that works for your scalp.
Try New Styles That Work for Bald Heads
Going bald doesn’t need to be a depressing event that leaves you melting into the background, so why not take the opportunity to switch your style and embrace your new bald status? Pick out some bold glasses that give your face a focal point or add in some stylish accessories like fun scarves or ties.
By taking some risks with your style, you can look forward to overhauling the way you look and setting yourself up to show others that you love your new hair-free lifestyle
Don’t Fall for Expensive Solutions That Don’t Work
Many men feel pressure to undergo hair loss treatments when they start to notice thinning or bald patches on their head. However, there are a lot of shady ‘fix all’ services that will happily take your money with the promise of providing you with luxury locks and then let you down with quick fixes that do not work.
We’ve all seen Wayne Rooney’s hair transplant journey but let’s be honest, choosing this route will be expensive and will take time to get results. If you do decide to seek treatment, take time to complete lots of research to find out which type will work best for you.
Look After Your New Bald Status
If you decide that you are going to embrace your newfound bald status then you will need to do so in a way that keeps your skin healthy. Many balding men notice that their scalp burns quickly in the sun and so applying a strong SPF is the first step to keeping your head healthy.
Next, you will need to consider applying moisturiser to help leave your skin smooth and supple and don’t forget that any wayward or fine hairs will need to be removed regularly so that you don’t end up looking a mess.
Move Ahead with Confidence
No matter what you decide to do or how you follow your path to baldness, taking the time to accept and embrace this new stage will help you to feel comfortable again – plus, it will introduce you to a whole new world of people who love a bald head!
