The University of Pennsylvania finds that bald men tend to look more dominant than guys with hair—also a trait women find sexy
Keeping your hair isn’t worth the prison time
A bald Florida man was just sentenced to 2 years in prison and $22,000 in fines for running a Rogaine “theft ring” that stretched from Ohio to New Jersey, according to Florida TV station WFTV.
The bald bandit, 36-year-old Andres Arias, would fly to Ohio and hit predetermined drug stores. He would then ship the stolen Rogaine to New Jersey in exchange for payment from his “associates.”
If only Arias knew that he didn’t have to turn to a life of crime to beat his baldness.
Besides, even if Arias didn’t get caught, he wouldn’t have had much luck with his bounty. “Rogaine generally will not regrow hair,” says Adam Friedman, M.D., an associate professor of dermatology at George Washington University.
While Rogaine “does an excellent job” of helping you halt hair loss and hold onto the locks you have left, Dr. Friedman says once you go bald there’s not much you can do to bring your hair back.
While there are a handful of promising new treatments that could potentially cure baldness within the next decade, more and more guys are embracing their chrome domes—and the ladies don’t seem to mind.
Researchers at Wake Forest University asked roughly 2,500 women to look at pictures of men and to rate each guy’s attractiveness on a scale from 1 to 10. While a clean, well-kept appearance was attractive to most women, having a full head of hair didn’t make the women’s list of sexy attributes. What topped that list? Confidence.
