Balding is a condition that happens to almost all men—as many as 70% will deal with thinning hair or balding at some point. It’s something that is ingrained in your DNA and you don’t have much control over. But, it’s better to be old and bald, than full-haired and dead, right?
The biggest challenge of balding isn’t really the physical aspect; it’s the emotional play. So, the first step to dealing with the fact that you're balding is to accept it, but know that you can do things to address it. Denying that you are balding isn’t going to do anyone any favors and it’s how you end up with things like the “comb over.” Once you accept that balding is happening, there are several things you can do to help slow the process, maybe even regrow some hair, or find a hairstyle that works with thinning hair. Read on for six ways to do just that.
