When To Give Up And Start Shaving Your Head
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I remember the day like it was yesterday. I had just finished getting a new government ID. While walking back to my car I took a look at my brand new ID, and almost fell over when I saw my picture. I had known that I had a receding hairline since 2008. I even knew of the growing bald spot in the back of my head. However, nothing prepared me for seeing a picture of myself with a combover.

You know where you grow the hair long and then you comb it over to the side to hide a bald spot? The only problem was it didn't cover the bald spot on the side that wasn't being combed over. When I saw that picture I knew something had to be done. I wasn't sure of what I needed to do, but I knew I had to do something.

Everytime I went to the barber they always had those three stage shampoos that would supposedly get your hair to grow back. I tried them but they never seemed to work.

I also have quite a few friends in NuSkin which is a network marketing company that sells various health products. I was approached by a couple of them and they told me about a product that helped bring back hair. I was pretty open to the idea. I looked at the testimonials and was impressed by what I saw. Ultimately, I didn't feel like spending a hundred bucks a month for the rest of my life to have a full head of hair.

I'm not sure how or why the idea popped into my head, but I started thinking about shaving my head. I was pretty hesitant to say the least. A year or two prior to that I had gotten a really short fade for a haircut. I thought it looked horrible and didn't like the shape of my head. I vowed never to have it that short again.

At the same time I just couldn't shake the idea of shaving my head. The more I thought about it the more it seemed like the best idea. Instead of fighting my growing bald spot, I might as well go with the flow and embrace it.

I was about ninety percent sure that I wanted to shave my head. However, I had never shaved my head, so I didn't know what it would look like with no hair. The only other time I had my hair really short I didn't like the look, my face looked to narrow.

I thought about it for a little bit. Then I did a little test. I put both my hands on my forehead and pulled the hair back. This way at least I could see a little preview of what I would like with a shaved head. It didn't look too bad.

After debating for a few more days I finally took the plunge and bought a pair of clippers. I figured it was just hair and would eventually grow back. I used the clippers to cut my hair really short, and then I used a mach 3 to shave the remaining hair off.

When I was done I was surprised by the look. It actually looked pretty good. It took a couple of days to get use to it, but that's pretty normal. If you have ever had a beard for awhile and then shaved it off you can atest to this fact.

The guys at work gave me a hard time, but that's pretty typical when you change something. After a few days everything settled down and was back to normal. It had become my new look.

Overall, I am glad that I decided to shave my head. I now have a great new look. It looks a lot better than my old hair did seeing that I didn't style it. Also, it kind of makes me look like a bad ass. If you are thinking about shaving your head, I would highly recommend that you try it at least once.
