I’m 30, and starting to notice thinning at the crown of my head, and have long-since decided to keep my head shaved… I think I look good with a shaved head, and that shaved head beats thin/patchy baldness anyday. Well, shaving my head daily is turning out to be a bit of a chore (especially for someone who doesn’t like to shave), and have looked into having it removed permanently…
From what I’ve read so far, looks like I’ll just be shaving from here til eternity… cost and results seem to be wildly variable by individual, and I don’t think I’m prepared to make that gamble. I think I could hire someone to shave my head for me for the next 10 years for cheaper.
However, I’m still curious if anyone has had hair removed from his/her head - seems to me that it would be a lot more costly since the hair is denser, and more painful since there is bone right there for the whole thing.
Perhaps since I know I only want cranial hair removed, it’d be a lot cheaper? I’d love to have more body hair, just not on my head (well, not on just 1/2 my head!)
I suppose in a few years maybe the price will have come down, or advances made that make it less of a gamble… but paying thousands of dollars to have patchy regrowth on my head would be such a huge let-down, since the whole point would be to not need to shave (and avoid people seeing where there is hair and no hair, even when freshly shaved).
