Male pattern baldness doesn't have to be the end of the world though. Being bald actually comes with its own benefits; You save money on shampoo, you're more aerodynamic, and you'll never have a bad hair day. If you're starting to notice it, others probably have as well, so rock it! The only thing worse than going bald is pretending that you're not. Look at Patrick Stewart, or Bruce Willis for example – those guys are awesome and proud to be bald.
50% of all men by the age of 50 years will be affected by male-pattern baldness usually starting in their 20s-30s. Your hair however is a huge part of your personal identity, so the loss of it can hurt your self-confidence. Not to mention cost effiency; you may save money on shampoo as a bald man, but dome polish is expensive too!
If you're not quite ready to accept that yet, there a few options. Hair transplants appear in the media every now and then, usually focused on celebrities that have opted for them. It makes sense that it would be a celebritie's choice (see Wayne Rooney), as they can cost upwards of £20,000! Even after a hair transplant you have to continue taking Propecia to keep the hair that grew back due to the transplant.
Another, more affordable option however, is to start with Propecia/Finasteride from the beginning – the treatment has been shown to be highly effective at preventing hair loss and regrowing hair – The earlier you decide to take action, the better the results can be.
Matt Amy's journey with Finasteride is a great example of the results that can be expected:
