    My younger son shaved his head (takes after his father re baldness) - he really looks good! His father says he wishes shaved heads were fashionable when he was younger...
    Now-if I could just remember where I left my brain...

    Hello Jack. There seems to be no general answer. Have a look at
    http://www.keratin.com/ad/adindex.shtml for a coverage of this topic, including some discussion of "alternative" therapies. One thing seems certain - the expensive products that pop up in Google ads are a waste of money.

    Tattooing small pictures of Rabbits on the scalp may work.

    Have recently looked into the issue, as I lost a significant amount of hair due to urgent "medical intervention". The Propecia type products only work if the follicles are still alive, and apparently not at all if they have become inactive. Seek qualified and independent medical advice before you spend a fortune on the remedies.

    Jeez, like we haven't already heard every bald joke ever invented.

    As far as a cure for male pattern baldness, there isn't one.
    I started going bald at 18 & it just never really bothered me
    I suppose the needle on the old Chickometer never went as high as lads with plenty of hair but I never seemed to have any trouble (I think)
    You get used to the Bald Jokes after a while & learn to laugh at your self when someone cracks one (even though it's probably the eleventyth time you'd heard it)
    I did have one wee rule for myself though, I'd let someone away with wisecracks twice then ask them to cut it out, If they did it again I'd smack 'em in the teeth (works well) Some people just don't know when to stop.
    Some unbeleivable people when you meet them for the first time would say something like "Oooh you're bald"
    You need some quick one liners for those idiots like:
    "Hell, am I!! Oh well at least I haven't got a big hooter like you!
    or "Better than having acne or being ugly like you eh"
    or "Better than being flatchested like you, were you hiding behind the door when they were giving out the h....rs? (Pick their worst obvious feature & play on it) Good for a laugh & it shuts them up real quick!!
    Unfortunately my son has also inherited my "haircut" he is a 110KG front rower but he doesn't seem to get too many wiseguys, I wonder why?
    As others have said a No.1 is the way too go
    Of all the transplants/fixes/rugs I've seen they all look like what they are, bloody awful.
    Be Bald, Be Proud!
    Here endeth the lesson

    I shaved my head when i was 18, and it never grew back.

    lol.

    To tell the truth i had made a bet for $500 that i would shave me head,and get bullet holes tattood on one side and...uh....exit holes on the other.

    Glad i sobered up



    Can't say I have ever been the subject of bald jokes ,nor has it ever bothered me in the slightest...
