Oh, did it bother me, regardless of the things you would hear from friends and family like “it really didn’t matter”, or “bald is beautiful.” I didn’t buy any of it.

Looking My Felt Age I have slowly gone bald since I was about 30 years old. It didn’t bother me too much, until I was 46 and had a daughter. Suddenly most of the fathers (who were of course mostly younger) with children the same age seemed to look 20 years younger than I, even though I felt very young. …

“I did not like losing my hair. I was in a state of denial for many years going with shorter and shorter haircuts. Having a hair transplant was not an option for me because the hair transplants that I had seen before looked unnatural and had the doll’s hair look. I knew I would rather be bald than look like …

Hairpiece Removed without Notice. After years of wearing a hairpiece, I finally decided I wanted a more natural solution for my hair loss.
