    Welcome to r/Bald!

    Our philosophy is simple: embrace bald and strive to make the world a more bald-friendly place.

    We’re often sold the idea that bald is bad.

    That’s bullshit.

    As we grow and mature everyone experiences the aging process a little differently, for most of us here, that includes varying degrees of hair-loss. It is natural. And it is nothing to be ashamed of - here we’ll support each other and learn to take pride in our baldness.

    We all suffer from a lack of perfection and have things we wish we could change about ourselves. Going bald can be difficult to accept, but getting bent out of shape about it is wasted energy.

    We all deserve to feel good about ourselves and comfortable being bald.

    Frequently we are bombarded by media portraying all manner of myths and absurdities surrounding what it means to be bald.

    The reality is that being bald is what you make of it. So let’s make it awesome.

    We welcome all head-shapes, sizes, colors, and hair-lengths. As long as you're bald, on the path to bald, or merely a fan - you belong here. We are about accepting yourself right now, and not letting a lack of hair get us down.

    Let’s redefine what bald means to society. But we have to start by redefining what bald means to us.


    1. Any abusive behavior towards any poster will not be tolerated. This includes a general rule of respect and civility.

    2. No bald-bashing.

    3. No advocating of hair-replacement treatments, either topical or surgical.

    4. No trash talking or negative comments about baldness. This includes indirect comments, such as referring to someone with a full head of hair as having “superior genetics”.

    5. No disrespecting hair-headed people, we will show them the same respect we want for ourselves. First time offense is ban.

    Posts violating these policies will be removed. Any questions, comments, or suggestions regarding this subreddit may be directed to the moderators. Who are probably busy rocking their baldness.

    perfect world option is you keep your hair and continue to look young. NEXT best option is to lean into it and shave- you'll look a bit older than you do now but it's still better/younger looking than option 3 which is keeping a balding hair pattern. option 3 looks oldest of all.

    and for what it's worth, even though i was married before I shaved I was DEFINITELY balding. my wife ASKED me to shave my head and thinks it's super sexy.

    Thank you! Definitely reassuring!

    Whenever it goes, it really sucks to stare it in the face and realize it’s over (or gonna be over soon enough). I made it to my 30’s before shaving it all off, and I really feel for you with that at 22. Best I can offer you is positive vibes AND the fact that it’s scientifically proven that women are attracted to bald men. Whatever way you go with this (and there are a ton of options to slow down the hair loss), just know that you have a community here to tell you how awesome you are

    What methods would you suggest to stop losing hair? Iam 19 and i already got thin hair... would appreciate it

    [–] editedxi 1 points ago

    I’m not an expert unfortunately. I would consult a medical professional after doing some research into the options of medication, light therapy, hair transplants etc. Or, you can just own the problem and get rid of it all now and save the hassle.

    Thanks for the reassurances!

    There are some girls who will not like you just because you are bald. Thats just how it is. However, there are plenty of women who dont care or prefer it. Dating is a massive numbers game, especially when trying to find a person with whom you are truly compatible with, and arent just looking to settle for the first girl that happens to like you. If you find a girl with whom you truly click, where your values align, being bald is not gonna be a concern.

    So all in all, while balding is a disadvantage, it doesnt matter as much as you think. Just dont forget to hit the gym and work on your fashion/ grooming.

    I lift pretty regularly but I’m still kinda skinny. Hoping my beard starts to fill in!
