    Default How would you deal with your hairloss if you KNEW the cure was 5 years away

    Yesterday evening driving home I was just in my car thinking about it.

    Let's say hypothetically speaking that today you would turn on the TV and there's this news report on the national broadcast channel. It's on every channel worldwide. Every major media outlet is reporting on it: BBC, CNN, Al-Jazeera, Financial times, The Times, Reuters, etc...
    "Baldness cure is only 5 years away." Supposedly this researcher would have discovered the cure and made a test group of a hundred NW5 men regrow every hair they've lost. It's 100 % guaranteed, the baldness cure is a fact and will become available on the market for a democratic price.

    How would you deal with your hairloss the coming 5 years?

    Would you still take meds? Would you start taking them if you're not taking them now? Would you still use concealer? Would you make any hairstyle or lifestyle changes? Would you toss away your toupee or actually buy one thinking "it's only for a few years"?

    I Personally, don't take meds and am sporting a trimmed 3mm haircut, but I know if I had the guarantee of a cure I'd probably take the shaving knife and be done with it. I think it would be a lot easier to say goodbye to the stubble and hair I have left, knowing it's goodbye, rather than farewell.

    What's you guys take on it?

    The sad thing is the cure is more like 50 years away!

    Probably the same thing I am doing now. Just because there is a cure doesn't take away from the fact that I still have the problem at hand.

    Same. The next 5 years = the youngest 5 years you will ever live after today. No reason to let them all pass before you start to look decent, unless you cannot take current treatments

    If it really was five years away, a real cure, I'd relax a lot more, and continue with finasteride (for maintenance, and to keep my prostate healthier as a 'side effect'), and strongly consider upgrading to dutasteride, which otherwise I want to keep as a last resort if fin loses efficacy.
