Dealing with Hair Loss in Mid Life

Hair loss is inevitable for most men, and it admittedly took me a little longer to accept than I care to admit. I started losing my hair a few years back, but I managed to stay in denial until fairly recently. Don’t worry fellow middle-agers, there is a way through it. You must accept your hair loss with the kind of grace and dignity that I did.

One of the very first things I did once I started accepting my hair loss was go to the salon for a new style. You might say that this was just another pointless attempt at avoiding the fact of the matter, but the truth is that it helped me quite a bit. I have found one resource very helpful, a website that provides information on all natural supplements for men, they even have a full section dedicated to hair restoration and natural solutions to restore hair growth.

Let me first say that if you don’t have that much hair left, please shave it off. There is really no point in having only a little bit of hair left on your temples and the back of your head. You’ll actually probably be surprised at just how much better you look once you get it over with. From what I’ve noticed, it seems as though shaved heads are really “in” right now anyway.

Fortunately, I still have enough hair left to where styling it a different way actually helped me a lot. I think I look a lot better with my new hair style, and all of my friends agree. If you want to try out a new style too, I highly recommend that you find a competent barber who knows what they are doing. Maybe ask some of your friends who also struggle with hair loss to see who they go to. Trust me when I say that the right barber can make all the difference in the world when it comes to coping with your hair loss.

The most important thing that I did when it came to dealing with my hair loss was to just stop worrying about it. So many guys get obsessed with the hair they no longer have, which ironically can lead to even more hair loss! Losing your hair is the most natural thing in the world, so try not to worry about it too much.

If you really feel like having more hair is important to you, there are options that you can explore. You could get a hair transplant or try a medication like Propecia. It’s important to keep in mind that if you are at the point where you’re nearly bald, you can say goodbye to getting your full head of hair back.

I would suggest that anyone who is interested the various medications and procedures that are designed to treat hair loss to be very cautious. There are a lot of different options out there, but not all of them are good ones.

My advice to those who are starting to lose their hair in mid life is to relax and work with what you have. Don’t try to hide your head underneath a hat all the time like so many other guys do. Embrace your hair loss and your masculinity. Losing your hair doesn’t mean that you can’t still look attractive, it just means that you’ll have to get comfortable with a whole new look. I know that I’m happy with my not-so-full head of hair.
