My dad went bald so early that even his pictures as a young groom show a seriously receding hairline. He always embraced it and I grew up thinking that male baldness was preferable to a full hair of head.
And a new study confirms that this is the way to go:
The study, conducted at the University of Trier in Germany, asked 160 men, ages 18 to 30 years old, how they coped with hair loss.
Those who tried hair replacement strategies were more stressed than those who did not.
Those men who tried medicine were often disappointed because of the side effects and cost. McKee said it can help a man to look toward a role model.
“(Hair loss is) related to your mother’s father, there’s a hereditary link there. So my maternal grandfather was bald, and he was a great guy,” McKee said. “It didn’t seem to hurt him in life."
So there you go, bald men of Ricochet. The key is to embrace it. And then you'll look like Patrick Stewart here.
