    Don’t think chicks are just into the boys who have hair , Do you think hair is the only attractive feature of men ?,Just remember Bruce wills , Dwayne Johnson and many more
    It’s all about your Confidence
    Just be confident and concentrate on your carrer
    Everything will get fine with time
    Time heals everything
    Hit gym , Eat healthy , STAY CONFIDENT
    When you get suicidal instincts , Just remember your mother ,
    First of all you want to do all this for hair, which is just dead cells

    If you are truly suffering from depression, then you need to get help from a mental health professional. It may be more than just your hair. And even if it is "just your hair", being able to talk to someone who can give you some coping tools might help.

    Thank you very much for taking your time and helping a stranger out, guys. I trully, TRULLY appreciate it. I am trying to surpass the sadness that is ongoing inside me, and while hair loss may not be the only cause, it has always been something that made me feel insecure. There have been way too many events going on at the same time that didn't help my self-esteem either.

    Regarding @zlatan, I go ocasionally to the gym and play tenis now and then. The thing is that those guys you mencioned represent the more masculine/matura/alpha males, with strong faces and facial tones. The clean/buzz cut doesn't favor everyone as you probably know it. And I'm pretty sure it doesn't favor me. I'm a slim white boy who has pretty much no facial hair. I've always rocked that Troye Sivan-ish look and having lack of hair will turn me into a dead corpse. Now I'm not saying that continuous gym sessions won't improve my overall structure, I'm sure it will. But it won't suddenly give you a face that will rock a clean cut.

    @BaldBearded, thanks for the tips once again. I don't have many folks that I can talk to regarding this situation. The dermatologists around here (or at least the one I've been going to) aren't trully worried about your physical/mental health, and if the cause is genetic baldness they'll just say "Oh, thats male pattern baldness, mate. keep on taking finasteride and minoxidil and hope for the best". I'm there listening to it like "Well, THANK YOU sherlock for telling me to do what I've been doing since I was 17."...

    Perhaps your depression is caused by the finasteride?

    Never thought about it. Is it capable of giving ya side effects like those? That's a thing I'll have to talk about with my dermatologist.

    This thread is painful to read, and I'm sure many of us recognise the feelings you are experiencing. Frankly, it's heart-breaking. Still now, when I go out and I see guys in their 50s, 60s, 70s with beautiful, thick heads of hair, it almost makes me want to cry - they have no idea how lucky they are to never experience the soul-crushing agony. Every man (and woman) should be able to grow hair (if they want to), it's simply too important to our self-image.

    But, you are young. That is a big advantage. You have time on your side. Keep on keeping on, go to the gym etc. Perhaps you could set up a 'hair fund', that you pay into regularly, so that when more effective treatments come (and they will, it's been 20 years since propecia, something has to give soon), you will be ready and raring to go. Life most certainly does not end at 30, and you could (and I like to think, will) have many many years of full-head-of-hair-edness to look forward to.

    Stay strong brother. I hope you find the peace you need.

    Thank you so much for the conforting words, fella. This is the only place where I can speak to and people will actually listen to what I have to say. It gives me that burst of happiness that I so strongly need, sometimes. So thank you for that :)


    You don't know how much I'd love to have a friend IRL with similar problems that I could talk with. It makes me feel so lonely.
