Welcome to Part VII of "Good Looking Loser's Guide to Hair Loss Prevention".
In Part VI, we discussed "My Hair Transplant Results Before and After (Platform) Approach".
We are going to discuss the psychological effects of Male Pattern Baldness and a few attitudes (truths) that may prevent you from getting depressed.
I am well aware that progressive Male Pattern Baldness can be a psychological mindfuck, especially if you use anabolic steroids and literally trade hair for muscle on a daily basis.
Unlike being fat and other temporary unfavorable aesthetic conditions - Male Pattern Baldness is a permanent condition that you CANNOT reverse naturally.
Other insecure people know this but given the 'justifiable' opportunity - relish the chance to further destroy the self-esteem of the unfortunate minority of single guys that are silently battling this permanent condition in their 20's.
(to this day - no one has ever tried to insult me to my face, people think I have good hair but I've seen a lot of disgusting shit so I can sympathize with others)
How I Deal With Hair Loss
For the first time in about a decade, I'm not overly concerned about the situation.
This is mainly because I've had a fair amount of hair restored and the treatments are working quite well since I haven't used steroids in years.
Though I still use concealers on the crown and mid-zones, my hair density hasn't changed much in years.
One of the primary (but not only) reasons I no longer use anabolic steroids is because it eats on my hair too much.
(I do keep my testosterone levels pretty high via HRT)
To be fair, I haven't tried using our MAXIMUM Hair Loss Prevention Protocol during a cycle.
I have no plans to and won't be able to tell you how well RU58841 (and the other treatments) can combat high levels of androgens.
My guess is - it will work great for some, average for some and not work for others. It depends on what type of steroids you are taking and how much.
Juicing is just not worth it for me anymore.
I've put a lot of money and time into making my hair look decent and don't want to be moving backwards.
I plan to get the crown and mid-scalp areas filled a bit more sometime.
For me, the biggest step in overcoming the Male Pattern Baldness mindfuck was getting my hair line restored and finding the concealers that I recommend to you.
With that said, there were definitely many days that I worried about the future and didn't feel confident about how I looked.
Throughout the process, I made sure to keep these things in mind so the experience wasn't overly traumatic -
You Can Have the Appearance of a Full Head of Hair
(concealers and hair restoration)
Perhaps the most comforting thing is -
If you are willing to pay for it, you can have [the appearance of] a full head of hair.
There's several restoration methods (discussed Part VI) when combined with incredible concealers that will restore/give the appearance of a ~full head of hair.
So long as you (and your doctor) stabilize your hair cycle, build a strong hair line and a "platform" that can adequately support hair fibers - you will have a solid head of hair.
I am living proof that this approach works.
That alone should make you feel better about the situation.
Regardless of your sensitivity to Androgenic Alopecia, you can have [the appearance of] a decent head of hair if you are willing to pay for it.
You Can Fight Back Along the Way, If You Want
Second - you don't have to be a victim.
I'm just like every other guy that has experienced premature hair loss.
I've envisioned the proverbial "hair loss countdown" until I'm no longer able to sleep with hot girls.
I've been embarrassed to have a stylist trim my formerly pathetic head of hair silently watch hair as the hair fibers wash away.
I've looked at old pictures of myself and realized I'm not the same person anymore.
I've been discouraged to see a guy twice my age with twice as much hair.
The only difference is I WOULD NOT STAND FOR THESE BULLSHIT THOUGHTS and I did something about it.
That's the difference.
The average guy will simply wallow in sorrow and not even do the research needed to fix the situation.
Even if he finds the solution, he often won't act on it.
I've had several friends complain to me about their hair loss and repeatably ask what I do to keep/enhance my hair.
They ask me EVERY TIME they see me or speak to me on the phone.
I TELL THEM THE EXACT SOLUTIONS and that I'll even call Dr. Gabel for them.
A year later, they ask me the same questions, still complaining and tell me that they randomly stopped using the treatments or are scared to use the treatments/get a transplant because they are worried about the "side effects".
Nevermind the real side effects of having low self-esteem, being undersexed and being/feeling unattractive in their 20's -
They are worried about the "side effects" of something they have never even tried.
I can't tell you how many times this has happened.
If you get "side effects", STOP TAKING THE TREATMENTS and you will return to normal. It's just like anything else.
You are reading this guide because you aren't secure about your hair.
So go do something about it.
Insecurity is your best friend if you choose to embrace him.
He will be your worst enemy if you choose to deny him.
So go do something about it.
It might be a hair restoration procedure or it might be 'The Total Makeover' that I will discuss in the final section.
Either way - living life inside your head (thinking about your hair on a daily basis) is no way to live.
You have to do something.
The usual mainstream pep-talk, "It could be worse!", "Don't worry about it!" and "Don't be insecure!" isn't exactly helpful.
Do something about it.
You Can Start to Win Once You Stabilize Things
Third - the worst is mostly over after you slow things down.
Regardless of your ultimate goal, if you want to save your hair, it is really important to stabilize your hair loss.
It will be trial and error and you might have to adjust your protocol if it becomes less effective or gives you temporary side effects.
You should do your best to stabilize your hair loss before undergoing any hair restoration procedures.
That is the first step.
Once stabilized, you will feel better about your situation - no matter how advanced it may be.
At this point, you can consider having a hair restoration procedure and continue to use the concealers.
You should also reconsider your relationship with anabolic steroids.
How Much Do Women Care?
(Male Pattern Baldness is not a Death Sentence)
Fourth - it's important to realize that you care more about your hair than most members of the opposite sex.
Obviously this will vary from girl to girl and woman to woman but -
Regardless of how bad your hair situation is for your age, you know and I know that there's plenty of "follicular challenged" guys that get plenty of hot girls.
Just last night - there was a guy with less hair than you have who took home a girl that is better looking than your best.
That should be a comforting thing, not a slap in the face.
The only problem is -
Most guys experiencing pre-mature Male Pattern Baldness don't think they can be that guy and have no clue where to start.
I'm going to tell you where start if you are throwing in the towel against Male Pattern Baldness.
