Men - Is Shaving Your Head The Best Solution for Baldness?

There are a couple of reasons a man might shave his head. Some men like the look, while others adopt it as a means of dealing with hair loss issues. So while shaving your head is a personal decision, it is also a very complex one.

It's one thing to shave your head for purely personal reasons, but if part of the reason you are considering it is to deal with thinning hair or hair loss, it's essential to weigh the pro's and con's as well as research and consider other alternatives.

Pros and Cons of a Shaved Head

What are the pros and cons of a shaved head?

Research suggests that men with a shaved head are perceived as more dominant, taller, and stronger than men with full heads of hair. A shaved head means that you won't have to be concerned with styling, combing, or grooming your hair. You won't have to worry about riding in a convertible, with the sunroof open, or just plain having a bad hair day. Additionally, you will not have to worry about visiting the barbershop, or purchase shampoo, conditioner, gels, or any other hair products.

On the other hand, some people may find the new look intimidating, and studies also reveal that people view men with a shaved head as much less handsome and that shaving added almost five or ten years to the men's estimated average age.

Shaving your head will expose the skin on your scalp to the elements. Just like other exposed skin surfaces, the scalp can get sunburnt, and sunblock or a hat is a necessity to protect it on sunny days. Protection on winter or chilly days is equally essential as the sun can still burn the sensitive skin on the scalp, and shaving your head will make you more sensitive to the cold.

There are pros and cons to shaving your head, and while a shaved head can make you really stand out from the crowd, there are other ways to deal with hair loss.

What Are the Options?

No two men are alike, and neither are their scalp and hair care needs. Finding the best solution for your thinning hair or hair loss begins with a FREE consultation at New Image Hair Clinic. During your initial consultation, our hair loss specialist will thoroughly exam your scalp and hair and look at other factors that may be causing your thinning hair or hair loss.

Depending on your situation, a variety of solutions may be available. For many men, a topical solution sprayed or rubbed on the head once or twice a day can encourage partial hair regrowth. Laser treatment is a proven and effective method of stimulating new hair growth by stimulating blood flow to the hair follicles. For many men, laser treatments combined with topical solutions can stop their hair loss and encourage the growth of new healthy hair.

New Image Hair Clinic has hair loss solutions to fit a variety of needs. We offer nonsurgical hair replacement systems that will give you the look and feel of your natural hair. Our exclusive processes enable us to fill in the areas where thinning and baldness are occurring so you can achieve a natural, thick, and full head of hair again.
