    Pay a visit to the nearest clinic.

    I've seen this poster at a couple of clinics - "Hair Loss? It can be cured - Consult your doctor for a solution."

    Tonics only work when they are applied (Rogaine/Regaine, Beijing 101, etc.), once you stop, the hair falls out again.
    Rubbing alcohol (my mum recommended XO) doesn't work and can get expensive - better to get drunk on the stuff and forget that you ever have hair.
    Vigorous scalp massage gives you a headache.
    Brushing with a sable brush 100 times before sleeps make your hair stand on end with static.
    Herbal tonics give me a stomachache.
    Rubbing other stuff make the scalp sticky, and then you have to wash it off vigourously, which defeats the whole purpose cos it makes more hair fall out.

    Face it man!! Its hopeless. Let it all drop out (or get a crewcut) and spend your money on more meaningful stuff like cameras, lenses, etc .....

    No offend to you Darren.
    Seriously, if balding is unstoppable, I'll rather get a crewcut than to grow and maintain the last few hair I got on my head. I have seen some badly balding guys having very long hairs at the sides and back but none on the top. They were trying to comb from extreme left on their head to the extreme right's! It's was so gross...

    My uncle is bald. He's not bothered by it. He drove a merc 320 aorund town and, yes, he's definitely sexy with his Rolex GOLD watch and his fat wallet. Yups. Who say bald guys are not sexy?

    hmmm .... i am trying to grow my eyebrows and earhairs so that I can achieve a cross-cut effect. Coupled with the remaining hair on my left side diagonally, I think it should look quite good. Whaddya think?

    Seriously though, I am definitely not bothered with my receding hairline (altho my daughter sometime rubs my head and call me 'botak' ). Got to work on the Merc 320, Rolex watch and fat wallet though ... right now, I am on MRT, Casio watch and ordinary wallet which has more plastic than cash.

    Advantages of being bald:-
    1. Save on shampoo
    2. Save on haircut ($8 every 3-4 months for crewcut)
    3. No need to buy comb/brush/brylcreem
    4. Aerodynamic
    5. After bathing, head is dry in 2 minutes

    And Larry is right ... bald is SEXY .... why, just the other day, Zoe Tay sent me 2 (TWO!! DUA!! LIANG KE!!) SMS messages and a couple of emails too.... wah lau weh, I also dunno where she got my phone number and email address but i was so surprised. Anway, she sent me two SMS and a couple of emails .... wanna know what they were about .... ah..... thats my secret .....















    p.s. for those who really want to know, the SMS and email was for donating to NKF leh, but you know, ZOE TAY sent me one u know ... ah but then ...... *sigh* *sigh* *dream* *dream*

    Hi Wind,

    Seeing a doctor might not be a bad idea. There's a US FDA approved oral treatment called PROPECIA (finasteride), produced by Merck. I am not sure if it is available in Singapore. Your doctor should be able to help you.

    Good luck.

    ahhh.....thanks for the many advices ppl!!!

    Quite a few problems with Propecia, your doc will tell you about them but the main one is: small chance of impotence. Besides, do you really want to be taking a (originally developed as) prostate cancer drug when you don't need it?

    Grow old gracefully, and someday you might command your own starship too .

    This might sound a bit extreme... but if you're going bald how about going totally bald intentionally? Shave it all off , great for weather in Singapore. Pretty cool if you can pull it off, IMHO. (Pun intended)

    actually i had a fren who did just that. he was losing quite badly so he shaved it all off and kept a goatee instead. made him look like a real intellectual or a prefessor. but then he's Indian so it might have some effect on making him look distinguished.

    Sheesh... I should have seen this coming

    I had a hunch that something like this was coming my way as I was typing the word "under" - I vaguely recalled Larry proudly proclaiming himself as a big-bellied person in another thread
