My receding hairline and why I decided to go bald

my receding hairline disgust

After I turned 30 I noticed my hairline was starting to thin out. In the next 3 years my hairline kept receding further and further to the back of my head.

I was getting depressed looking at my receding hairline and every day that passed it seemed like my hairline retreated and my forehead was growing larger every day.

My hairline was looking worse and worse each passing day. I was determined that I was not going to have my hairline start in the middle of my head.

I didn’t want to look like I was 53 because of my hair receding. I had to make a decision on what to do about my dissappearing hair so I explored my options.

HeadBlade and Badger Hair Brush
  • Rogaine – Not an option
  • Hair Piece – Not an option
  • Hair Transplant – Not an option
  • Style it in a Mohawk – Possible but I had a corporate job might not go over well
  • Cut it all off

I decided that the only logical solution would be to cut it all off. I was 33 at the time and I knew if I chopped my hair off that it wasn’t going to grow back and most likely would accelerate the receding of my hairline.

As we all know hair loss is hereditary and looking at my father’s head I knew my hair was not gonna last and this decision was Final!

It took me a week to cut it off, as I wanted to be sure that this was the only solution. I can remember the day sitting in the bathroom shaking my head looking in the mirror and saying “this is it”.

I proceeded to take the scissors and then a razor and cut all my hair off my head.

After a few months of experimenting with straight, automatic, and disposable razors as well as different types of shaving creams and shaving oils for bald head shaving.

I decided permanently to use the $15 HeadBlade ATX All Terrain Head Razor with the extra $15 HeadBlades 4 pack.

I also use Taylor of Old Bond Street Eton College Shaving Cream with the Perfecto 100% Pure Badger Shaving Brush.

The HeadBlade has cut down tremendously on cuts to my bald head. The razors in a pack of 4 usually last me about 2 months or so before I have to buy a new pack.

It took about 6 months to get used to having a bald head but now I’m good and comfortable with my new look.

Hopefully my kids will not have to worry about receding hairlines and cutting their hair off in their 30’s like I did.

But if they do they can come to me and I could tell them what they’re going to have to go through.

It’s not so bad, just make sure you wear a warm hat in the wintertime.
