View Full Version : How would you feel?

So I've been struggling with accelerating MPB for about three years, and see plenty of other dudes at the same stage as me.. Just enough thinning in the crown/front to notice it's coming.
I've really really really loved Toppik, it's seriously saved me. What my question is to you guys is - would it be weird if I went up to guys (say at the gym) and said "hey I couldn't help but notice" and "I recommend this"?
I know it's super strange thing to ask, but I feel like if I didn't know about this amazing product I would want someone to tell me. But at the same time is it not the right thing to do? How would you feel if someone came up to you, obviously kind of embarrassed but maybe thankful?

Haha, I love this. I get where you're coming from but I'd be very careful.
Imagine you're a guy, you've noticed you're thinning, it cripples you, so you hit the gym, try to better yourself in other ways, maybe you start to notice some gains, start to think 'hey, maybe the thinning isn't even that bad, I'm making some major progress in the gym and I bet no one even notices my one major obsession and insecurity'
Then 5 minutes you with your seemingly full head of hair thanks to topik pop up like 'hey bud, that's pretty noticeable, I'd do something about.'
Boom, his life is shattered.
But no seriously dude you have good intentions, but i'd probably try talking to them in general first, just normal chit chat, establish that you're a nice guy first and not some asshole calling him out in the gym with his hairloss.
I totally get this product has saved you, hairloss is as bad to me as it is you, but some of those guys won't want to hear it and will take offence, so maybe just speak to them, gauge their stance on stuff like that, and if they seem like they might respond well, mention it, if they seem like they'd punch you, don't worry about it.

Haha, what a great response. I really think you nailed it on the head, pun intended. I totally agree with your statements, chit chatting with them first would be a good idea. You're right, they probably already are aware of it and someone saying something about it publicly would be crippling.
I do appreciate your response though, it's just something I've thought about as you find yourself looking at other dudes hair all the time when before I never used to.
For now; I'll stick to myself and the Dumbbells, lol.
