Yes, hair regrowth drugs do work, but they won’t give a bald man a full head of hair. They will give him some. I tend to think of these drugs as allowing you to hang on to what you have. In other words, as soon as you start to go bald, as opposed to being bald, is the time to use them. Propecia is the better of the two by far. It works by decreasing the amount of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the hair follicle. High DHT levels in your scalp hair are a big factor in hair loss.

Going bald and its acceptance is tough for many men. Most, especially in the early phases, don’t want to admit or at least verbalize they have a problem. This is unfortunate as early acceptance and use of Propecia does work to prevent further loss. I’m very familiar with the reluctance to admit you’re going bald scenario as I’ve lived it myself. Take a gander at my caricature and you’ll see what I mean.

Oh, one more thing. If you’re the type that wants to wear a rug, no matter what you spend, we’ll all know. The rug is for you, not for us. Personally I abhor the things. Once I was working with a group that hired a new psychiatrist. By all accounts a good guy, but I was flabbergasted when I met him. He wore a rug. A god-awful rug at that. And let me tell you, the essence of a psychiatrist is his understanding of himself and the human condition. I mean how self-actualized could he be with a bird’s nest on his head? I have to tell you I couldn’t take him serious as a psychiatrist after that, and I never referred to him again.

After that little rant let me reassure about a couple of things: Bald men do get sex and your wife/lover/girlfriend will still love you. If she doesn’t, do you really want her in your life? No, is the answer.
