"Balding" is a word no man wants to hear. Most societies in the world associate luxurious hair with youth, beauty, and good health. "For centuries, humans have adorned themselves in a variety of ways — tattooing, nail cosmetics, and most universally, hairstyles of all sorts," Robert T. Brodell, MD, professor of internal medicine of the dermatology section told Everyday Health. "For many people, their hair is what makes them feel beautiful.” When you lose your hair — for whatever reason, it can be devastating.
Luckily, there balding guys have options. Phil Ring is one of them. He specializes in hair replacement, and his non-surgical procedures make a huge difference.
“Right away you just get so energized and excited and nervous for them but when they come back and you actually see how much it’s currently changing people. They have new dates they’ve gotten married and some people just have so much more confidence,” Ring told Bored Panda.
"I only use HairskeenUSA for the hair that I use," Phil wrote. "Just my preference because the lace systems rarely ever shed and its such a high quality system."
Everyday Health suggests these positive ways of dealing with the emotional side of hair loss include:
Reminding yourself that hair loss itself is not life-threatening. "It may not be pleasant and it can be unfortunate, but you can live with thinning hair or a bald spot, Brodell says. Hair loss is only as challenging as you think it is."
Putting that bald spot in perspective. "Your true friends and family will like you for yourself and not for how much hair you have on your head. When it comes to sexuality, you have many other attributes to excite your partner."
Working with beauty professionals to find a hairstyle that suits you. "You may want to find a wig, hat, or a head scarf that complements your sense of fashion. If your hair is thinning, it’s best to keep it short rather than try to hide bald spots with obvious comb-overs."
Considering talk therapy. "If the emotional impact of hair loss is getting in the way of living your life, get help from a mental health professional."

I break down the adhesive process into four sections the back, the left middle the right middle, and the front. This allows the back to dry while I’m working in other sections. It used to be that I would put all of the adhesive on at once but then I would have to wait a really long time for the whole section to dry. . I’m using HAIRSKEEN systems for this, and you can book me in NYC and RHODE ISLAND by visiting www.phildoeshair.com You MUST schedule a consultation, phone consultations via DM are taking up too much of my time. In-person consultations are free, however If a consultation via DM is necessary, before you book send $50 via Venmo to @Phildoeshair and I will contact you to book your phone consultation.
