    Excellent so the fact I seem to be growing in the waistline and I hate the lift in my apartment block as it really does show that my hair is thinning on top is a good thing showing I'm full of wisdom and prosper... That or I'm just eating too much cafe food and snacks at work and need to join a gym. Doesn't solve the hair issue though Keeping it longer means its maybe less noticable or maybe more? Maybe I'll have to have a short and trendy haircut see if I see it as much then

    Just pointing out that it is a modern issue, my genes are also betraying me and my usual consumption of a family size bar of chocolate per day is no longer yielding zero results and I am too needing to change my behaviour to stave off the previously undiscriminated against - as much - (in the past) signs of age. I guess it is the releveling of gender roles but it still sucks.

    Hah! No!

    Although my constant teasing of the rest of my family who were bald in their early 20s (I'm now early 30s) will probably bite me on the arse in the end.

    Apparently a caffeine shampoo also roughs it up a bit so that it looks thicker - seems a bit odd

    Alpecin really does make the appearance of hair thinning lots better.

    Not yet.
    Found my first grey hair though about 2 years ago (22). Not seen any more since though thankfully.

    My brother thoughtfully calls mine my 'monk spot'!

    Was bothered about it at first but not now. As someone else said there are a lot worse things that could happen.

    Get someone to draw rabbits all over your scalp. From a distance they will look like hares.

    Unless your name is a lie, no one will see it anyway, surely

    What a lot of tosh! We all know that it is because of gravity, the hair follicles on the male of the species succumb to gravity, that is why the upper thorax gets hairier!

    I've gone thin on top (lusciously thick around the back and sides) and a hairline slowly making it's way to my back. Well, what do you expect when turning 24?

    Try a hat - simple and yet effective.
