Going bald is one of the worst nightmares for both men and women. Hair loss makes people insecure, and “kills” their self-confidence. In the past, strong and shiny hair was a synonym for power. Well, times have changed, and being bald is not such a bad thing.
Researchers have found that this bald-headed trend is actually attractive. Can you believe that?
Balding is natural
Balding is a natural process that does not happen overnight. It may take several years or decades before men’s scalp turns shiny and hairless. Statistics shows that about 66% of all men have started losing hair by the age of 35. Almost 90% of men have lost their hair completely or still have something left by the age of 55. Most men tend to shave the remaining hair on their head which is why 85% of men aged 55 have no hair at all.
Baldness is usually a matter of genes. Researchers have found that the androgen receptor gene is linked to the pattern of baldness in men. It is important for the regulation of growth.
Bald means sexy
Bald men felt insecure, anxious, and depressed. Some were even willing to spend a small fortune to reverse the process or cover it. Most of the treatments do not provide the expected effect, and the whole thing is just a desperate move to change genetics. Believe it or not, you cannot change your genes which is why you should shave your head and be proud. Dr. Frank Muscarella from Florida’s Barry University says this is the best thing that can happen to you.
The doctor rated his male subjects in four quadrants, while observing their physical attractiveness, aggressiveness, appeasement, and social maturity. The participants’ honesty, intelligence and social status were also a factor.
Dr. Muscarella split his participants in two groups. Participants in group one were asked to score photos of men who had hair. The second group had to score the same men, but this time they were bald (computers can do anything).
The doctor found that most participants considered bald men as honest, intelligent and strong. Let’s not forget that some of the most handsome Hollywood stars are bald. Jason Statham, Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson look great! So yes, going bald actually makes you sexier.
If you had some concerns regarding your baldness, now is the time to change your mindset. This may not be your best look, but trust me, you look sexy. Even science backs up your baldness! The most important thing is that you love yourself regardless of your physical appearance. Embrace yourself!
