Experience is a comb which nature gives to men when they are bald...

--Chinese Proverb

We’ll get to the root of the issue with a thorough social and scientific investigation of balding. Historically hair has symbolized youth, power, and virility. In a culture that idolizes youth and pokes fun at male vanity, baldness is a double whammy. Not only must the balding man contend with hair loss, but he may be subject to further embarrassment if he appears overly concerned. We’ll explore the past, present and exciting possibilities for the future as we uncover The Bald Truth.
