    My boyfriend was going a bit thin when we met but it was barely noticeable until he pointed it out. He has such lovely hair (one of my favourite things about him) and now a year later he has a noticeable bald spot and a receding hairline. He is self conscious so usually wears hats or tries to style it to hide it. His older brother is completely bald and I just don't find the look attractive at all . my boyfriend is kind of skinny and indie/hipster looking and a shaved head would just look weird. Obviously I'll love him regardless but the thought that one day soon he's gonna turn up with a smooth head is freaking me out. I like hair!

    my hair is thinning, luckily still can get away with a decent quiff.

    The guy will probably know, so leave him too it, unless it puts you off, than leave.

    Try products for hair growth.
    Or look online for loads of homemade remedies which might help..like coconut oil with some rosemary essential oil and when you massage it into the scalp it helps to stimulate the hair follicles

    What? I said I'd love him regardless, but it's a big deal for him and me. Don't be such a pig for no reason.

    Thing is I don't want to bring it up, I try and not mention it as he gets so self conscious. I'm sure he's tried everything, I don't think home remedies really work much tbh anyway

    hair is a huge part of someone, it frames your face. not having generally makes you less attractive. you need physical attraction in a relationship

    I think you've answered your own concerns there. Support him, it's a big thing for a man to go bald.

    Has he tried AVEDA shampoo and conditioner for thinning hair? It won't bring it back but it does thicken and slow it down amazingly, one of my friends is using it and his hair looks better now than it did two years ago!

    My boyfriend's hair has just started receeding too! And he is also hipsterish *squints eyes* haha! He is very self conscious about it, which is the worst part. I'm just trying to make him feel better about it. If you think something like hair loss is going to seriously affect your relationship then maybe you should think about the main reasons you're with him? My sister's boyfriend recently had a hair transplant, it's all grown in now and looks awesome - there's always that!
