Flannels not lasting as long as they used to?
Meh, it happens man. It's when you notice it takes longer and longer to wash your face when it becomes a concern.
It is receding.
It's nice that it happens relatively slowly. I mean, imagine if you woke up one morning and you were Terry Nutkins. This way you don't have to go through that harrowing Kubler-Ross loss denial grief blablabla model. Just gradual acceptance. And you can still have a silly haircut, look at Nick Cave. And Terry Nutkins.
"is your hair falling out yet?"
me: "no! like, no more than usual"
mother: "oh, because your dad started going noticeably bald at 27"
me: "no, i lose a few hairs a day that i notice, but you know, the average person, male or female, loses 100 hairs a day, and they grow back. it's more noticeable if you have long hair cos you see them"
mother: "i bet you're going bald."
me: "i'm not going bald."
mother: "what about your crown? are you thinning on top?"
me: "i'm definitely not."
mother: "but your dad was."
me: "well, maybe i'm better than him."
mother: "but you use those hair straightener things. you must be going bald."
me: "mother, seriously, i'm not remotely going bald."
one of my recurring nightmares does involve me going bald.
on the surface that might seem bad, and it is genuinely terrifying at the time, but waking up and realising it's not happening is one of the most amazing feelings in the world.
i have really wavey hair.
all my uncles on my mothers side have lots of hair.
Phew. I feel like less of a freak now.
My hairline has morphed into a particularly agitated v-sign, and I'm not wetting the bed.
