    Try Batiste dry shampoo with dark brown tint. Works great for thickening hair up and hiding scalp that shows through. Its cheap too. I'm thinning on top and back and it takes 1 minute to spray some of that on and look like I've got a full head of thick hair. I also get to keep a long fringe I can style rather than clipper all over. That powder stuff works the same but feels dirty and takes longer to apply and rubs off leaving spots that look like mange.

    I've had no probs with the dry shampoo other than the other hot day I was sweating after applying it before my hair was completely dry from a shower. I thought the girl at the checkout was flirting with me due to a longer than normal stare and smile but turns out I had brown stuff running down my forehead.:lol:

    Just make sure your hair is completely dry before applying.

    Be sensible and realistic though. If you are too bald or there is any hint that you use these products to hide the balding then don't use them, just clipper your hair short.

    I don’t spend as much time looking at the back of my head as one might think, but that one time that I did at about 35 and I saw a fair amount of skin through the hair back there, I went out and got some clippers. Haven’t looked back since. Ha! Ha! Haven’t “looked back!” Whew! I slay me.

    Thank God I have a full head of gray hair, I can live with gray. The rest of you have my sympathy.

    It's a rare thing that can't be pulled off by at least somebody.

    Minoxydil. Wasn't that the stuff that was all the rage for baldness some years ago? I disremember the trade name. Anyone have experience with that?

    This is going back a ways, but there was a funny episode of the old Dick Van Dyke Show. Laura Petrie (Mary Tyler Moore,) Rob Petrie's (Dick van Dyke) wife, accidentally reveals to the public that TV star Alan Brady, Rob's boss, (Carl Reiner,) is bald & wears a wig.

    He has her up to his office & does a hilarious bit with six or seven different wigs all lined up on those blank styrofoam heads. "Here's my neat one, here's my charming one, here's my artistic one, here's 'Hey Alan, you need a haircut.' It's all over now, boys..."

    IIRC, in the end he embraces the bald.

    If you look like that then hair is the least of your problems. Running for a bus or getting an erection would be a bigger concern tbh

    I think the Minoxydil maintains what you have left and thickens it up. It wont grow hair where there is none though. I used it for a couple years, when I stopped my hair got a lot thinner within a couple months. They say it only works on the crown area.

    My front hairline is moving back, and I'm thinning out on top. I just get it cut short (#3 on top, #2 on the sides). Real basic. A very expensive rug would work, but that's way too fussy for me. People would know.

    Just accept yourself and live life to the fullest. For instance, if you are fat and out of shape, you can fix that. Be the fit, sharp looking guy who keeps his hair short, not the fat old phony with a comb over.

    I usually agree with you... but, I think going with a super stringy balding hair swooping alll over and being sloppy fat (and sweaty) would be awesome... anyone can pull off clean and tidy and together... you need to SCARE people!
