    beard advice - i can't relate.

    if i stopped shaving for 6 months i'd probably get as far as this

    You are indeed hairy iirc Czer.

    I treasure my full head of hair. I need it to offset the rest of my head looking like an insomniac ghoul.

    Nice progress Yogr. I tried to get my old man to use Nizoral and he ignored my advice even though I looked into its effectiveness as an off-label treatment.

    I feel like I'd just bic my head if it ever happens to me, but maybe it's one of those things that's easy to say until you actually start losing it.

    Some solid advice. Thanks.
    Why no one's told me this shit before? Lol.
    Maybe if I actually went to a barber for beard trim or something.

    my hairline is starting to recede, but I'll be 40 this year so I guess I made a good run. it sort of bothers me, but it sort of doesn't. How expensive are the treatments? I've been gray haired since I was like 26 and have been dying my hair and beard every 2 weeks ever since.

    I am 44, full head of hair. I shave my head every summer. I'll just do the bald shave if ever my hair abandons me.

    I can vouch for the biotin vitamins. Not dealing with hair loss, but I started taking them to help with brittle nails, and a side effect was unexpected new hair growth. I didn’t really notice until my hair stylist pointed it out and asked what the heck I had been doing to achieve it.

    Depends what you decide to take.
    I'm not so sure what works against graying, but something you may want to do which is free is scalp massaging.
    May sound like some bullshit but you actually can notice differences in your scalp, and you can extract a shitload of sebum if you massage hard enough. A lot of people's scalps are pretty backed up with a lot of crap and for some people it leads to hair loss / graying.
    So increasing the blood flow and loosening up sebum and other crap that may cause inflammation would probably be step 1.
    Biotin or collagen may help.
    But yeah, I read one story about a dude that always had healthy hair into his 50s and his brothers were losing hair and graying and all he did was scalp massages and some herbal shit and a healthy diet/lifedtyle. So there's that.

    I think this is the most geriatric thread since TZT's inception (would have been trolled to hell 10 years ago too).

    Just want to point that out. We're well on our way to threads about incontinence, memory exercises to avoid accidentally putting your slippers in the dishwasher, and arthritis life hacks.

    tbh i've always found serious age trolling to be pretty inadvisable, partially because i'm older than most, but mostly because i always believed people would just hate themselves that much more when they hit that age as well

    Yeah, but the problem with older people is that they are stupid as shit. So it's hard not to troll them. I think the correlation between age and intelligence is a perfect -1.00.

    I totally want to argue w/you, but then I look at voting patterns and welp.

    I've tried to grow a longer beard but it grows out spikey and just doesn't look good beyond a certain point. Would conditioner help with that? Any recommendations on what type of conditioners/waxes to use?

    I'm dealing with a full head of gray hairs, especially in the last few years. I hope my hair doesn't fall out, because if I bic it I look like a lamp with the shade off and a pair of shrek ears some five year old taped on.
