So why have I - a grumpy, balding, man whose poor sleeping habits have caused the speed of my ageing to accelerate during the tail end of my twenties - embraced the selfie? Because I get a masochistic kick out of watching myself decline, watching myself move towards death.
Those lovely hormones that caused your hair to stick around for longer than usual were simply on loan as a consolation prize to make up for all the other crap that pregnancy hormones put you through. Now that your baby is here, they are simply leaving your body and taking the extra hair with them.
We make sure our patients have all the advice and information that they need in order to decide whether a hair transplant is the right option for them, and we make sure that we're on hand to meet up or answer any questions on how to help prevent ongoing hair loss.
White men are on top. But not any white men: Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson, Donald Trump and Bob "Literature" Dylan have one thing in common besides their gender, race and sexuality: they all have hair, or constantly pretend they do.
Although it is quite common for people to lose hair as they get older, it can be upsetting when you realise your hair is getting thinner - and even mo...
Do I keep my pubes impractically long because I don't want less hair, or because I don't want to spend time trimming? As a bald man, I'm objectively less attractive than I was with hair, despite (now) taking more pride in my appearance.
Over the ages and across the world, we've sought new ways to cure baldness. Or failing a cure, for centuries we've come up with means to cover up bald patches: with wigs, hairpieces and transplants.
I have fallen in love with my natural hair! So much so that I now give a damn about what my hair products are actually doing to it. It's kind of like during my weight loss journey when I started reading food labels checking its fiber, sugar and fat content - I now check my hair product labels for their ingredients.
Bald prejudice is often a subtle mask for a different snap judgement, as many people presume that a man with a shaved head is one of two things: gay or racist...Men who shave their heads receive prejudice from both the socially liberal and the socially conservative, seeing us as a demon representative of something they abhor.
Being ready to shave my head proved to me that I had accepted I was losing my hair and could do nothing about it. But coming to terms with the new identity I'd have as a hairless man was to be a much harder struggle...
Most people my age are out drinking cocktails, playing crazy golf and squeezing every drop out of youth before real adulthood kicks in. Yet I'm at home, crying under a florescent light as I razor the stubble from the back and sides of my scalp.
Wayne Rooney. Gordon Ramsay. Louis Walsh. Three men with completely different roles in the limelight, but with one thing in common - they've all turned to surgery to restore their thinning hair. While the stars may have received their fair share of light-hearted ridicule for their procedures, both from the media and the general public, their hair transplants have now become part of who they are without damaging their careers or reputations.
The husband and I are now at that stage when we are thinking about whether or not we should be planning for a third child. Luckily on the same page - we are not very keen to rock the boat but equally realising we might be sad to miss the boat if we don't at least think about it properly.
In technical terms, sensory nerve fibres, neurohormones and neutrophins all play a role in the hair growth cycle. Levels of stress can have an effect on these and consequently accelerate loss of hair.
I have done a lot of research into this connection and have become very interested in how our bodies work and how our bodies work and how different parts of our body affect others. I had no idea that the food we put into our bodies can have a strong affect on many skin conditions.
Being in my late thirties with a toddler to chase after, I felt exhausted during the second pregnancy and absolutely wiped out after the birth. It was a physical and mental challenge going from one to two.
