Doesn't sound like you're anywhere near the point of shaving it off. Also, girls lie. That's like how women say size doesn't matter. Blah, blah, white noise, blah. The most effective style is the close-cropped Ceaser. He was notoriously concerned about this balding and used to wear the style and a laurel wreath whenever possible... like how balding guys wear ball caps a lot. If your more concerned about density, you need to consider this... if you have light skin and dark hair, you need more hair to look dense. Lighten your hair color, or darken your skin and scalp color, then you look like you have more hair. There is also a product Topix that you sprinkle on your balding/lighter spots that some use as a cover up. I haven't used it, but it's always an option. Basically it's synthetic hair flakes you hold in place with some spray. They expand and give you the look of dense hair. It seems to look good and some people swear by the stuff. For the rest, read my past posts and the thread. As I said before, finasteride (if you have insurance, you'll pay $5 or so), Rogaine, vitamin, eat better, good fats like fish oil. They aren't that expensive, though Rogaine can get pricey, but you can get 4-months for $50 which isn't bad. Generics are like $20 of a 4 month supply. I'm going to try tiecollector's brew too. Can't hurt to just try.
I got some receding temples, but I'm deathly afraid of shaving my head. I think it's both 1) lumpy and 2) pretty heavily scarred.
I have a fat head, haha.
