The trick to using Rogaine is diligence. Apply it carefully to your scalp twice a day.
A buzzed haircut can lessen the visual impact of balding. Or you can shave your dome, like HeadBlade razor inventor Todd Greene did. Here’s his take:
“I felt self-conscious when I started losing my hair in the ’90s. This was back when baldness still carried a lot of negative stereotypes. I went for it anyway, and people started thinking I was more athletic – they thought I worked out more. There’s something powerful about a shaved head; there’s nothing ‘pretty boy’ about it. And women started to pay more attention – some even had a fetish for it.
“I don’t care for the term ‘bald.’ it’s passive. Balding is something that happens to you. Shaving is something you take into your own hands. You’re no longer a victim of circumstance.”
