Thinking about when to shave your head if going bald? This article will explore that a little, and I’ll give you some advice based on my own experience!
No guy ever wants to go bald and be forced into shaving his head.
That’s just the plain truth.
But unfortunately nature has a different plan for us balding men, and we are often faced with the decision of choosing between wearing caps and combovers versus shaving it bare and becoming a new man.
So if you already know deep down inside that baldness is slowly catching you, then this article is going to be just what you need!
I was exactly the same as all of you.
I started experiencing small signs of baldness at around 20 or 21 years of age, and as the years went by I kept adjusting and fixing my hair to make sure I still looked good.
And it worked!
Rarely could you tell I was going bald, and no one ever actually noticed.
But the thing is, I knew where I was headed and didn’t want to have to slowly but surely walk around with half of my hair missing.
So I decided fuck it, let’s start shaving!
First I grabbed the number 2 clipper size, then the number 1, then I just got fed up and grabbed the shaving cream and razor.
And guess what?
I feel better now than ever!

Putting off shaving your head if going bald is really the worst decision you can make.
It sucks having to worry about hiding your bald spots on a daily basis, knowing that eventually you are going to lose it regardless.
Timeline of Baldness
Most guys experience roughly the same sort of timeline when it comes to going bald.
After high school, you notice you are slowly starting to thin a little in one or two areas.
No big deal. It’s barely noticeable!
A few years go by, and the thinning has led to one or two actual bald patches. You need to start using hair products and make sure your hair is styled correctly in order to hide your baldness.
Still going OK, but you are slowly heading into the bald abyss.
Another year or two goes by, and now it’s pretty much noticeable.
You don’t even dare jump into the pool in front of people, because you will come out with your head looking like a baby bird.
Then, after many years of stress and torture, you decide you grab the clippers and go number 2.
Then number 1.
And then finally: you grab the razor and say enough is enough!
You look at and ask yourself why the hell did you endure those many years of worrying about your damn hair.
I’m sure this sounds familiar, right?
So The Main Question: When To Shave Your Head If Going Bald?
There really isn’t a 100% right answer to this question.
It depends on you.
The type of person you are.
And how far down the baldness journey you are.
As I said before, once you actually take the plunge into shaving your head properly, you will most definitely regret not doing it sooner.
It’s the best feeling in the world, trust me.
It took me a a good few years to eventually end up as a completely bald, egg head man.
But looking back, I should have just cut my hair super short at the first signs of baldness.
And then razored it off when my bald spots became visible for all to see.
So if you are a fellow balding legend, then here’s my bit of advice:
Just shave it off sooner than later. You might hate your look at first, but you will thank me down the road!
