So after not cutting my hair for almost a year, I felt like cutting it myself the other day. It's also been at least 2 years since I had it cut this short, so maybe it's because my hair was so big and curly that I wasn't able to see this, but it was only after cutting it the other day that I noticed how much my hair has been greying in the past few years, which I wasn't expecting. I had already noticed a handful of grey hairs on each side of my head in my early 20's, but you could only see it if you standed very close and under some light. Now I have dozens of them and you can probably see them even if you're standing 10 feet away.
I'm only in my late 20s and I already have as much grey hair as people in their late 30s and 40s. My 40 year old cousin actually seems to have less greys than me right now.
To make matters worse, my hair is also thinning/balding at the top and I'm getting fine lines on my forehead and around my mouth and nose (which is annoying since I rarely leave my house and get sun so at least my face/skin could be fine). At this rate, by the time I reach 40 I'll look like a balding and uglier Anderson Cooper.
Any fellow wizards also aging sooner than "normal" (be it greying hair, balding, wrinkles, etc)? If yes, does it bother you?
bragfag. I'd love to have grey hair, it would look totally wizcore.

I had some of this and that. The things always started happening right after I, for whatever reason, began dwelling on them, the idea or the possibility of them. Sure enough that always makes things happen. I killed it all in the bud though and reversed the damage. I still look and feel the same as I did in 2004. Actually no….better than I did.
Nice of you, I guess I wouldn't care as much if it'd kind of stop/slow down in the next decade or so (not just the grey hair but everything else). I just don't like that 10 years from now I might be looking like a 50 year old, plus knowing it will only get worse after that.
Been going bald since I was 20, wish I had a full head of hair but oh well, maybe one day I'll get the courage to just shave it.
I started balding recently. It seems like it happened really fast but I may have just not noticed/been in denial for a while. Not really surprising given how nearly everyone related to me is balding but it's still kind of a kick in the nuts.
Yeah, I'm only 25 but I'm already greying so much that my sister mentioned it. My hairline ie receding and hair thinning around temples but so far it's barely noticeable. People ask me if I have children and ask if I own my parents house. It's no fair, I went from awkward gangly kid to old man with no in-between. Or maybe I just spent that depressed as shit on the computer and I never even noticed.
I got asked if I had kids last year. It's quite a shocking experience.
Better graying early than balding early, holy shit I can't even comb my hair without noticing how thin the top has gotten.
do you look that normal?
Yeah, I thought I only had a mild form of baldness but it soon got progressively worse as I entered in my 20's. Now my temples are mostly barren.
I'm thinking about investing in GHK-cu to reverse this, but I need to check something first before I try it.
I was looking in the mirror the other night and I'm starting to get crows feet. I overall still look really young roughly around I'd say 20-21 years old minus having some 5 o'clock shadow as well as my eyes and around them. I have black circles around my eyes and they seem to be sunk in a lot more now. I don't know if it was the lighting in my bathroom but my hair also seems to have some slight grey tint going on with it as well. I'll be 30 in less than a year. I also rarely ever leave the house,go outside, and don't really exercise along with a pretty poor diet.
Part of me worries about it but part of me doesn't. It's not like I have anyone to impress or even remotely care about doing so.
you know you can fix that

that mimics estrogen
I've gained some belly fat over the last eight years (33) and my energy level has dropped severely. Used to be I could stay up all night no problem but nowadays I nod off early, wake up tired, and on my weekends I take frequent naps during the day. I suppose part of it might be depression since occasionally I will have really good days where I feel motivated and energetic but it's not often. Just very tired. Otherwise I still look young, especially if I shave. I have some grey in my beard but when shaved I get mistaken for a recent highschool graduate.
OP here, yeah I've read about that some years ago, not sure if I should try it due to what >>223760
said (which I also had already heard about), still, thank you wiz
I cared about my facial appearance a few years ago, but now I don't. Out of the men I admire (writers, etc) almost none were physically attractive. Who cares, if you aren't trying to bed succubi?
>>224121>I don't care about being ugly
I'll never understand this.
Then I don’t think this website is for you.
Let me answer with a question of my own, why do you care about being ugly?
Why would a wizard care about being beautiful? Being attractive and good-looking is to be desirable to other mates.
But I guess it kind of makes sense. People also generally treat you better if you look nice and tidy and you don't smell and look like some filthy ungroomed hobo.
It's not about succubi, it just saddens me a bit that after being told my whole life about how I looked "so much younger" than my actual age, all of the sudden, I look in the mirror and I see it's the opposite that's beginning to happen. It's really the lack of "in-between" like >>223314
said that upsets me.
I'm not ugly.>>224152>Being attractive and good-looking is to be desirable to other mates.
Retarded evolutionary psychology materialism. Doesn't even merit a proper rebuttal. Ook ook.
Wasn’t calling you ugly and wasn’t the point either, why would being ugly matter to you?
You can't even comprehend it, can you.
You people really are a different species.
>>224177>Retarded evolutionary psychology materialism.
Not him but why do you think it's retarded? Don't believe in evolution?
He’s just resorting to trolling after being called out on his bullshit
I'm 35 with lots of gray. Dunno if it really means that much though. Dad went gray super early too.
More importantly, all my grandparents are still alive and kicking (two of them 90+).
Think it's just shitty hairy genetics in some cases.
FWIW (gray 35-year-old dude again), I've always been told the same thing.
Got ID'd when buying booze a few months back, which really surprised me (hadn't happened for a few years). Would think the grays should've tipped him off at least.
I'd worry more when you start getting back pain, can't see too well and need new glasses, or rotting teeth. That's when you're really fucked.
Not that guy, but you can maintain your body just for yourself.
For instance, I periodically shave the lower part of my penile shaft. I just didn’t like having hair on my penis, so I decided to groom it. It’s not like anyone sees my penis, I just like the way it looks to me.
I am 22 and it seems like people usually think im younger than I am.
The other day when I was furniture shopping with my parents the sales person told me "this couch would be great for watching cartoons", it happens fairly frequently that I get comments like that.
I'm frail and had a weak puberty so I just look boyish.
gray hair is the least of your problems when you are really aging. I am 48 years old now and my feelings about death and having to say goodbye forever are tearing me apart on a daily basis. These feelings are triggered by just statistics: I am closer to my death then I am to when I was born Also the body getting older, stiffness, muscle weakness, less flexibility in my thinking, having far far less energy, needing more time to get better after sickness, not being able to drink alcohol anymore, not able to smoke anymore (both because if the destructive effects on the body I feel, I only felt them when I was older. When I was younger, drinking and smoking did not bother me at all). Nope anon, grey hair is a sign that the you are on your way to death, non-existance. And on that road the color of your hair will soon start to feel as a non-issue when the psycholgical effects of realizing you are very very mortal kick-in.
My hair is a beautiful perfect platinum grey.
succubi notice it immediately.
no hair loss either.
My beard matches it perfectly.
Woooooeeee big fat freaking hairy deal!
it called getting old/wearing out/ bad genes/ bad whatever…
it's called psychogenesis, you fell for the age meme
I look like some systems programmer who wrote some UNIX file systems in C or some shit except I'm not grey yet. I just look like a boomer software developer. I'm only 28. I have the life experience and maturity of a fifteen-year-old.
congrats op, now you will look like paulie from the sopranos.
he is my favorite character
I had an instructor at work with totally white hair but without hair loss. his hair was voluminous and full and I always thought how cool it looked.
but yeah, my hair has been thinning since I was like 21 or something
