A recent study found over half of British men would rather have a full head of hair than a promotion or supermodel wife. According to Dr Thomy Kouremada-Zioga, a Hair Transplant Surgeon at The Private Clinic of Harley Street, there has been a surge in men experiencing accelerated hair loss due to the use of powdered protein and the activity they participate in at the gym. “Interestingly, the activity that men do in the gym can also potentially impact hair loss. While cardio will reduce the levels of DHT in the blood stream, excess weight lifting can increase testosterone levels and therefore accelerate hair loss.

A biotech company has Phase 2 trial result readouts this quarter on a hair loss treatement, ACRS (Aclaris Therapeutics). If you see their stock price spike at some point, you'll know why.

So..   no heavy resistance exercise, no high protein diet.  Do cardio, be a vegan. 

Do all you can to reduce your levels of testosterone.  Eat a lot of soy.  

Why not just get castrated?  Problem solved.

There's like a 1500 dollar baseball hat at costco that says it helps.  they have a great return policy there so you could return it if it doesn't work.

I guess I’m the odd man out, I’ve been buzzing my hair to a 0 for about a decade now, I have thick solid “nice” hair I just hate having it, it’s too much work and I don’t like having to deal with it. It’s just easier to buzz off and work on other things. Maybe if more people worked on exercise and stuff instead of worrying about their hair there wouldn’t be so many skinny fat bros running around with stupid haircuts always worrying about their hair haha

But the skinny fat bros with the hair are the ones who end up with all the ladies. Cause women don’t like bald men even if they have muscles.

Skinny fat bros are probably more likely to easily find/get girlfriends that are the matching weak female counterpart of themselves. That seems to make most people happy though so nothing wrong with it. Then they can have trivia night partners, match wardrobes, watch GOT together and such.

People that are programmed to challenge themselves physically and mentally are more likely to be attracted to/found attractive by women of a similar strong mindset. You end up going through more relationships because the expectation/standard is higher.

And the irony is that it is typically guys with great hair that have erectile dysfunction.

It's variable depending on the person, but by and large height and hair = serious bonus points in all aspects of life.

There are plenty of tall schmucks with awesome hair and short, cool bald guys though.

Women do, girls maybe not, I’m married so I don’t really care what girls want. Plus when I grapple it generally helps not to be a skinny fat kid with a cool comb over lol

You can get a joovv infrared light and buy a regular red bulb for under 250.  

Supposedly there's a peptide with promising results

Interesting. 

I started thinning a bit a couple years back and decided to try that propecia shit. It made my hair grow back, but killed my boners and sex drive. Didn’t get blood work done, but I’d bet it killed my test levels. 

I got tf off that shit, cause I’d rather be bald then have great hair with weak boners and no sex drive.

What is the hold up with this shit anyway? Are hair transplant surgeons secretly lobbying against this behind closed doors?
