    Hyperthyrodism can be controlled with meds, if you actually have that...which by the way is actually diagnosable and can be the direct reason for hair loss.

    Starting a weight lifting and gaining program AFTER 30 is actually way tougher then when you're younger for two key reasons: 1) Testosterone and HGH levels are on the downward slope and 2) You are more likely to start down the 'contented' road of life.

Indeed, I've known women, many of them quite the lookers, who've been less vain.

    In short, grow up and man up, fellas. Either focus on bearing your age well (as men have done for aeons) or learn to sing castrato; it's all equal to me. But if you can't come to a sort of peace with something so paltry as balding, I doubt you'll ever be able to come to peace with much.
    Lol at bearing your age well...for those of us in college, being bald isn't bearing your age well. Honestly, people who bald late 20s/early 30s have a very different experience when it comes to hair loss imo. I'm not saying it isn't still painful, but losing hair at 17, 18, 19, is way harder than losing some at 25, 26, 27.

    Shave your head, get a tan and get your ass to the gym. Also join a martial arts gym.

    Look like a chemo patient, triple your risk of skin cancer and take steroids. Learn martial arts to kick the asses of people that make fun of you for following the three previous advices.

    GYM BRAH! I went from a skinny 130lbs stick to 170lbs piece of flesh. It does feel good to look stronger, more muscles, look better in clothes, look healthy, and not be a frail hobbit. Took me a long time though because of being on and off and losing weight but now that I am taking the gym more seriously, stuff is good. Also feels good to throw the girl your ****ing all around the place rather than making her move herself. ahaha... HA!

    Lack of sun exposure leads to increased risk of cancer. So if you avoid the tan, you'll end up looking like a chemo patient anyway. Might as well enjoy the outside, no?

    How can you get a tan when you are bald. If I went out in the sun I'd come back looking like a purple penis helmet.

    And going to a tanning salon is not a good answer either unless u want to look like an oompa loompa.
