A lot of guys tend to let the hair grow in order to cover it up or comb it over so they feel like they have more hair. Loosing your hair can be traumatic or emotional & understanding it’s somewhat out of your control due to hormones can be hard for some to embrace. Your hair doesn’t make you the person you are, in fact it has as much of a contribution as what clothes you wear. It’s your personality that speaks volumes about who you are. So in short don’t stress it’s not the end!
Getting the sides shorter exposes some skin therefore makes it look like there is less hair or density. Doing this matches the exposure to skin on the top so rather than looking like your going bald it looks like it’s meant to be!
So before you start holding on for dear life to a thin mane get some advice on how to make it look thicker!
