Death, taxes and hair loss—if you're lucky, you'll only have to deal with two.
Hair loss isn't certain as the Grim Reaper, and it doesn't swoop in swiftly like the IRS—but the numbers aren't in our favor.
Forty percent of men will experience hair loss by the age of 35, and the figures jump substantially from there. The key is accepting that you and many others will probably not make it to ripe old age with the lion's share of your flow intact.
Embracing hair loss sounds easy, but it isn't. You'll notice it in the mirror, pick some hair out of the drain and suddenly find yourself in a CVS thumbing a box of Rogaine.
This happens to the best of us, and while there's nothing wrong with raging against the dying of the follicles, some guys go to great lengths to revive, hide and disguise their molting hairlines.
These are athletes who have trouble hiding their balding. Some try harder than others, but they'd all probably be better served grabbing the clippers and finishing what Mother Nature started.
