I started to lose my hair a few months after I turned 30, which was weird because I thought people started going bald in their 40’s and 50’s.
Not long afterwards I went to a wedding. Now that it was on my radar, I saw it everywhere with guys in my peer group.
I had no plans to do anything about it. It’s genetic, isn’t it? And if that’s the case, surely there’s no balding cure except for genetic modification?
Either way, I’m not the kind of guy who would sport a comb-over or do anything desperate. Just take a razor to it when it becomes noticeable and never look back.
Then I read something from George at 3rdMilenniumMen (blog now defunct) about his experience with hair loss. He said he went to his doctor, who promptly recommended Minoxidil (Rogaine), I think, and he reported that within a couple of months, things were much better.
I went to see mine shortly after. He laughed his ass off, then said that nothing was proven. Just accept it and move on. (The amount of differing information you’ll get from doctors never ceases to amaze me).
I’m now juicing and using a generic Minoxidil product as a balding cure, and I’m seeing some improvements. Since no hair loss treatment has ever been proven, you should really be supplementing with natural juice.
There is no magic pill balding cure, but you can slow the process. Minoxidil works by helping blood flow to the scalp, which encourages growth. Juicing helps you do the same, among other things.
