    Default Haircuts suck

    I just got one and it is actually a good cut. But when styling my hair I have SO little room for error because of these few stubborn diffuse spots that meds have never been able to reverse well enough

    When I am like 1/2 of the way between cuts this is when I feel my best, it is that nice middle ground between too short and too shaggy/unkempt. Even after almost 3 years on meds I get nervous around haircut time, because you never know for sure if your barber is having an off day and is about to srsly f*ck you over.

    I really hope dut can thicken these spots up. Most areas my hair is pretty good but I feel like the hairline corners have taken a slight hit in density since starting dut 4+ months ago. I have been carefully styling my hair for years to look "normal" and it is getting depressing. Sometimes I feel like a fraud

    MPB IS RIDICULOUS. What a pointless genetic flaw, that no one is able to cure despite the BILLIONS of dollars to be made.

    Oh well, maybe in 5 years. Hang in there guys.

    OH and something I noticed awhile ago. I think I might have DUPA. The "safe zone" area does not seem as dense as it was pre-MPB. I just never really noticed I guess, since that part lays flat. So if I ever quit meds, or if they stop working, I will probably look like a chemo patient or something
    This also probably means I would never be a good candidate for surgery if I ever needed it.

    Hurrah

    Why are you whining so much when you still have enough hair. There are people with NW7 like me out there. Just buzz it if it bothers you that much.

    I hate when they go too short. Why can they not just be conservative? You can always take more off, but adding more back takes weeks or months.
    I am always very specific with my directions now, I tell them exactly what not to do

    I actually used to cut my own hair sometimes as a teen, with the help of a friend or relative. When you have a full, awesome head of hair the mistakes do not matter so much. But now if I want to conceal the thinned areas there is not much room for mistakes, it has to be a good cut every time.
    If you look good with a short buzz you are lucky, it is no option for me.

    If I still had enough hair I would not be here. I style my hair so people don't know I have this gene. It is very limiting to my lifestyle. I used to like swimming, amusement parks, wind and rain. Now I get to choose between those things and continuing the charade. I am obsessed with image, so which one do you think I choose every day?

    I have buzzed my hair before, it is unacceptable. You never tire of reminding us how good you look without hair, but this does not apply for most of us. Most guys look like crap without hair, or no better than mediocre

    Thats called a buzz. But I suppose I'm being nitty. Its so close it likely looks shaved if you are light colored hair.

    My god I just got a short haircut this weekend. Barber did not listen well. Now I will be wearing a crap hairstyle for a few weeks while it grows back.
    The diffuse thinning in my hairline corners (more on 1 side) from dut is pissing me off. Actually I was feeling OK about my hair until this haircut.

    I am only 7 months on dut but it is annoying the hell out of me. If my hairline corners do not get back to baseline at least by the end of 1 year, I will be srsly considering oral spiro.

    Lol that barber didnt lisen, haha, that is rich. I still would not go near spiro if you're a male. I thought that when people lost their hairline it was both sides at the same rate, so now you look non symmetrical?
