    hi im 18 and developed a large bald batch on the top of my head and looks to me that i may be getting bald in a few years time. since i noticed it my confidence has gone has right down and shaving my head bald will be my only option. im starting uni next sept hopefully and i keep thinking this problem will effect my chances with the girls on nights out to the bars or clubs and in uni in general. has anyone else got a similar problem or am i stressing myself over nothing and do girls actually find bald guys attractive?

    Go bald, say you did it for charity. Though this is a short-term solution.

    Shave your head! Balding is not a choice, shaving is. People don't have to know.

    A lack of protein is supposed to cause hair loss but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's the cause in your case.

    Try shoving a couple of beef steaks and some protein shake mix into a blender, then drink and see if your hair grows back. Simple.

    This. I think my hair started receding around 24, but I'd been shaving it for years before that, so it hasn't really affected me at all.

    I get strange (drunk) girls rubbing my head all the time, I really wouldn't worry about that aspect of it.

    Old wives tale . I'm a pretty committed weight lifter, 6 portions of protein a day etc. Has made no difference to my hairline

    No, I said a lack of protein can be a cause, taking more than the recommended amount won't miraculously make your hair grow.

    Dont worry im sortof goin through that same problem, although im not loosing hair my hair its just very thin. Try growing your hair a little and cut only with scissors and not razors. Also use johnsons baby shampoo you can use it everyday and is as sensitive to your scalp as water. Be gentle with your aswell... Its more than likely a genetic trait passed through your family.

    This is actually more likely to be the cause of it in your case.
    High levels of testosterone can cause baldness (It's due to one of the chemicals testosterone breaks down into, but I forget which one).

    his might help you - I know the problem and it helped me. I started having problems with bad, unhealthy looking hair and what everyone called dandruff but learned that it was not but also learned that the cause of all my problems was harsh ingredients in shampoos.and overwashing. So stopped using them and everything started to heal naturally. So you will be better off doing the same. Best to use tea tree oil shampoo - buy at Tesco(own brand). I too was loosing hair and just by chance found a treatment that stopped the loss. I had heard that if the scalp had suffered from bad product use, if was stimulated or irritated in some way that it would get revitalized and would start producing strong well anchored hair that would not shed. So contrary to some accepted thinking that brushing would shed more or break hairs, I started regularly brushing with a palm held fairly stiff bristled brush (50 times). My aim was to stimulate the scalp. There was a little hair shedding and some breakages only to begin with but that stopped as hair started growing stronger. There was some new growth also (yes, amazingly, it was new growth). Kept brushing just as strongly every other day and overtime those hairs grew longer and more new hair appeared. Sometimes I massaged the hair AND scalp with oil(an organic oil - olive oil is good, tea tree oil is better - it's a natural anti-septic) after brushing and slept with it that way. I protected pillow with an old towel. That does get a beautiful, healthy sheen to the hair. No more shedding after that and hair where it was thin is now healthy and full again. I still maintain a regular brushing routine and avoid overwashing - that is bad for the hair.

    I started receding before I started weightlifting

    It's invariably genetic on my side. Both my grandfathers were bald, several of my uncles too.

    oh no......balding. because it's a big deal.
    obviously it's only going to affect what you think people will think of you; the balding itself won't cause problems. so I guess if you're fool enough to plague yourself with yourself, there is no helping you
