Had an afro till when I was about 12 ( sorry no pics eh,hmmm..my house burnt down, yea that's right.Phew )

Went into romper stomper mode for a while till my dad 'set' me straight.

Ditched the attitude but kept the hairstyle...

or rather skin.

Till now ( or cropped really short ).

Yea try the hair centre that seems to have a lot budget for airtime.

Alternatively, work on your attitude and be more confident.

Or just skin it ( only if you can carry the 'look' ).

Saint, I second that emotion. Been in the same conditions for almost 30 years now. (29?) Way I see it is: "God only made a few perfect heads, he put hair on the rest! :cool: Some of us are blessed with TWO bald heads. :twisted: I also thought here in Asia, among the chinese, being bald was a sign of wisdom? Have to admit though, sometimes both heads are at odds with each other as both think they are right! :mrgreen:

Just live with the hair dude...
No worries..Take care of your hair propely and everything will be fine..
My uncle was facing the same problem of yours recently and he took good care of his hair and now his hair is like a new born baby's hair..

Anyway I have a question...Why do people get grey hair??

12 year olds tend not to have grey hair so you've got a few years yet before they may appear

I'm not expat but . . .

Many years ago. Before the crow population became a problem here in Singapore. And when food waste-management wasn't as tight. Another type of yellow-beak bird (mynahs?) were often seen feeding on leftovers at hawker centres. One of my friends observed that these birds were often bald and/or their feathers lacked a healthy colour.

Perhaps there's a connection between food that we eat and the state of our ... hair? After all there's a connection to our health. Have you ever considered consulting a chinese medical physician? If it isn't genetic.

Sms, it's wealth.

Grey hair. My mum said cantonese's black sesame sweet soup helps. I don't know.

Walk backwards seven times a day while eating raw pigs testicles and Rose' week-old guacamole.

Will your hair grow back? Doubt it, but you will be preoccupied while hugging the old porcelain telephone.

Baldness is genetic - nothing you can do about it. End of story. As tiki said, live with it and acceopt it as fact.

At least you don't also have gout . . . and are ancient . . . . :lol:

Don't know if it is all about insecurity. Maybe it is vanity or maybe greed. People just want to look good, better, best.

I know of girls who look fairly attractive and they are aware of it. That does not prevent them for seeking out the latest beauty trend. Part of it is that a country like SG is very urban and dense. People rub shoulders everyday and lives of these aunties, kaypos and what nots are closely intertwined. If they see someone experience good result with certain product, then everybody wants one.

It is the same with cities like taipei and hong kong. Those are crowded cities like SG too. You will see many girls dress somewhat alike, with same type of makeup, carrying somewhat similar handbag brands. However, if you go to the countryside of these country, people are different. Fashion trend is not the priority of country folks who prefer rural lifestyle.
