There are a number is scriptures in the bible, which that shaving ones head indicated mourning, fasting or distress. Aging can also cause en to lose their crowning glory. In 2: Kings 2:23-24, a group of young boys ridiculed the Prophet Elisha, because he was bald.
The man of God cursed them, and bears showed up and mauled 42 of the young men.Today many men celebrate baldness as something to be embraced.One of the first men I remember being bald and also celebrated, was the actor Yul Breynner. Since ten Sean Connery and other male celebrities sport bald heads, whether by nature or choice.
There are those who believe that a lack of hair, brings to notice other attributes in men such as their physique, facial expressions, or the way he talks. And of course there are women who say they love a clean shaven head, and indicate their belief that bald men are sexy. I believe that when bald men accept the skin we are in, we exude confidence, that others perceive as cocky, arrogant or sexy.
I have head people criticize bald men who grow facial hair, because they think it is an attempt to make up for the lack of locks exuding fro their scalps. Some guys just like a beard or go-tee, and it has noting to do with baldness. Hair on the chin is however more noticeable, when their is a lack on the head.
It took a while, but I a very comfortable with my clean scalp. And enjoy the benefits. I save money that might have been spent at the barber shop. I do not have to worry about whether or not my hair style is in fashion. And neither do I have need of chemicals to alter my hair to make it straight curly or wavy.
A bald head is not necessarily a sign of aging. I know a young man who was bald by age 22. By embracing your baldness you are accepting one of those things you cannot change. This is the first step where you accentuate the positive, deal with the hand you are dealt, and turn lemons into lemonade. It also helps to have a spouse or mate who loves you and supports your new look.
If you and your wife/mate have no issues with the loss of hair, it should not matter what others believe. My wife shared how as a child, she and her cousins laughed at an older pastor who was bald, because the sun was reflecting off his head. It’s a good thing we are in the dispensation of grace, and bears did not attack them as they did the boys in the Old Testament.
