Fucks sake. Getting older is a pain in the arse :(

What other bull-shit like this do we have to start doing that no-one told us about?

These human bodies are just too much maintenance!

True. Nothing more manly than having a flaming brand thrust into your ears and nostrils. Although scared the crap out of me the first time when I wondered what he was going to do with the fire. No burns no gain.

A few times recently I've gone at least half a day before noticing that a long grey nose hair had been protruding from beyond the nostril. Most worrying is that I'm only 25 when this is happening :(

Baldness is OK but I could seriously do without knowing all the hair that was once on my head has migrated to my ears, my nose and my back! ARGH!

Nose hair - the missus keeps threatening to get me one of those horrible nose hair / ear hair trimmers but I told her if she gets me one of those she's getting a brazilian kit as a thankyou pressie. And I'm not talking about footie kit either.

I'm sort of lucky - despite being a beardy I don't have any ear hair or bad nose hair. But I do get the odd moustache hair curling upwards instead of downwards, and right up my nose !

The worst thing for me in getting old is that I'm going very grey. That, and my troublesome, much operated on knees ache all the time.

Closest thread for my query:

It's becoming increasingly easy to pull my hair out, and in the shower loads comes off on my hands.

peej, should I be worried? What should I do? Do doctors deal with this kind of thing? At what age does this kind of thing typically start?

;_;

See the doctor, check your diet, consider how much stress is in your life.

I started going bald at 19. The lot (or at least the significant part of it) had gone by 21. Shaved it all off and have been doing ever since. It really is the only way.

My doc tried all sorts and recommended a fuck of a lot of protein in your diet if you've still got enough left and haven't started developing male pattern baldness beyond the point of no return.

Apparently there's some miracle cure on the way that's based on some weird venom from a sea urchin but, heh, you going to rub that shit on your head for 140 quid a dose?

When you've been without hair for more than 20 years you stop missing it, and tbh I wish the bits that DO still grow back would fucking stop doing so (I have to shave my head once a week and there's really no easy way to do that if you're on your own unless you're fucking l33t at setting up two mirrors and shaving back to front).

Worry less about your hair, worry more about your joints, eyesight and all the other stuff (and your waistline of course) hair's just a load of dead skin cells people like to sculpt into ridiculous shapes.

I do jokingly say I'm malting, but it's gotten a bit scary, now :)

Yeah, I guess I should see the doctor, though it's a bit embarrassing! Might be stress, as I'm a very anxious person, and it might be diet, as I'm a vegetarian and I don't get much protein.

Yikes, 19?! Looks like I may be way past due, then.

I won't mind if it goes (there was always a 50% chance based on family) and I've gone shaven-headed when I was younger - (though now it would project too much of a "blokey bloke" kind of image). But until it goes, I'd really rather it didn't!

Apparently there's some miracle cure on the way that's based on some weird venom from a sea urchin but, heh, you going to rub that shit on your head for 140 quid a dose?

Heck yes, if I had the money! Times ten, if I had to :)

moulting is the correct spelling chaps.

Could be stress. Is it coming out in big clumps that leave a visible bald patch?

York, is your hair long ? I noticed a lot more coming out when my hair was longer, but I'm still pretty well stocked in the hair-on-head department at 38. It got to a point where I was clogging up the plughole as much as the missus, so I went back to grade 2 again.

Unless it's coming out in clumps it's probably just natural sheddage.

Not huge clumps - like, not all from one area at once. Just like, if I run my hand through my hair and gently pull out, I'll take a few strands out that way. Yesterday I was just washing my hair and my hands got covered in a disgusting amount - more than I'd ever seen. Clogged up the drain at the end.

There's quite a bit hair on my pillow, like, as though we owned a dog, or something. :s

It's not long, long - like, it reaches my eyelids. But yeah, there may be a positive correlation with length, in that longer hair has more leverage to accidentally pull out.

Sounds like what mine was doing mate - I shouldn't worry about it.

You're supposed to lose about 80 hairs a day to natural shedding alone, and that doesn't account for breakage.

And the longer your hair is, the more you'll notice it when you do shed it.

PANIC (over)

Weird bump following on from the derailment onto head hair...

I haven't had a haircut since october and it's not the longest it has been for 14 years (around 2-3 inches long I guess). How long does hair need to be to get to that moderately cool scruffy look where I can make it look like I don't have ears? :)

PS. Have you pulled out all the rest of your hair yet, Yorkie?

Is your hair receding or going a bit thin on top NY? A huge amount of people have noticed a considerable improvement by using Propecia, I'm on it myself and have to say I haven't noticed those gains yet, but it's a long term thing I guess.

If your hair is just falling out a bit and you don't like the clumps of hair you mention when washing it etc, then ru58841 (nice name huh?!) helps a lot with shedding so could be worth a look.

Meh, i don't get why blokes are so fussed by losing their hair. The only graceful way to go bald is the Mitchell way.

I've still got very very thick hair and no sign of receding. Plenty of grey/white infiltrating the barnet though :(

The worst of it is the long white nasal hairs.

That reminds me of a classic quote from golf legend Lee Trevino: "Grey hair is great. Ask anyone who's bald". No offence, peej ;)

Just a question about shaving in general.

I never seem to be able to get a close shave. Like, running my hand over my face after I can still feel all the stubble. It's annoying. I'm using the Gillette 4-blade jobby.

Tips?

Make sure you wash your face with hot water first to soften the hairs - perferrably soak in the bath - then try with foam/gel.

I use those Gillete Mach 4 shavers and they make my face feel like a baby's bottom. Admittedly Ionly have to shave once a fortnight.

Aside from my derrier obvs, I'm not particularly hirsuit.

I thought that was pretty standard stuff. That's pretty much my routine: wash, gel/foam, 4-blade.

Hmm...
