Does Growing Old Mean Growing Bald?

You’re blowing out (yet another) set of candles signifying that (yet another) year has passed, and although your kids are great and your wife is still hot, you can’t help but worry about what the future may bring. Yep, you’re 50 now, and how long is this full head of lustrous hair going to last?

Rest assured, because growing old is not a death sentence for your dense tresses. In fact, according to the Balding Blog, most men that may show aggressive hair loss patterns later on in life begin to lose their hair at age 20 – proof that despite the grandeur of Mother Nature, she’s still kind of a cruel bitch.

Balding can occur at any time in a person’s life.  Don’t believe that? Here are some stone cold facts from the Modern Medical Library:

  • 25% of men begin balding by 30
  • 50% of men are affected by male-patterned balding by age 60
  • 66% of men at age 60 are showing signs of balding

Hair loss affects many men worldwide, but just because your forehead may be growing, by no means are you getting old. Whatever your age may be, if you find that your hair no longer is resilient, there are still various measures you can take to keep you looking as young as you feel.

Over-the-counter topical applications, like Rogaine’s 5% solution, show an average of 45% re-growth two months after starting treatment. If you are in the market for something more potent, prescription-strength Propecia is the only medication available to male-patterned baldness. For more drastic measures, go for a hair transplant for near-instant results.

If you’re still bumming about growing bald, just remember that you are in good company – can you get think of a more interesting bunch of people than Ron Howard, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Bruce Willis, Samuel Jackson, or James Carville? That’s a group that even the most full-headed of us would want to join.
