The first thing you need to do is try to accept it. Acceptance is a step closer to happiness, as denial can only lead to anger. If you accept that you are losing your hair, you will be able to let go of your frustrations and finally putting things in perspective. You can achieve this acceptance by learning about hair loss and performing research on how other men have coped with hair loss. Another solution is to distract yourself by focusing on other aspects of your life that might need improvement. Realize that you have other things in your life that make you who you are and that a full head of hair does not make you who you are. You could do this by taking up a new hobby or interest to see that there are other things you can do than worry about your hair, or lack thereof.
Finally, the last stage of acceptance is to try and convince yourself that you don’t need or want a full head of hair and that there are more important things in life to focus on. Your family, friends, health, and other things in your life can give you happiness that you don’t need in order to feel good about yourself.
Once you accept this, you can finally start looking for some helpful solutions. You can start to peruse the vast array of treatments that might be good for you. Not all treatments work very well for everyone but at this point you have accepted that you are losing your hair, that it is not the end of the world, but that there are some things you can do to fix this problem.
One choice is to shave your entire head bald. This will remove all the thinning and patches and bald spots. However, this might not be an appealing solution for you at all. One solution you might try is hair transplants. This is a permanent solution that will certainly eliminate hair loss and help you with your self esteem, however it can be a costly and expensive procedure and might not work for everyone. Another solution is to purchase hair growing creams and tonics. Though many of these do not yield any results at all, some of them do work just enough to help you see enough results to help you feel a bit better about yourself. Hair follicle stimulation procedures often work as they stimulate hair follicles and prevent hair growth.
Finally, another solution is to purchase a good and realistic hairpiece and wig. With this solution, you will get immediate results. However, realistic and good wigs are often high priced and can be inconvenient, as you have to remove them when you shower, when you swim, or when you perform some strenuous type of activities.
No matter what you do, accept, or find a good solution, and so really you must make sure that you find some support from your family and friends. Every so often you might fell badly again about what is happening but to have the family and friends in your life can often help you with your fears, worries, and shame.
