My mate wants to shave his head?!

Question: My mate wants to shave his head.?
He is a good friend, and he really wants to do it but his parents wont let him, and he really doesnt want to go against them, he keeps coming to me telling me this, but I dont know what to tell him! He is 18 and is desperate to do it!Health Question & Answer

Damn this guy is 18 and worried about his parents over a hairstyle. He's a wimp or there is some control freak issues with his parents.

Just shave it for him and let fate have its way. If he doesn't like it or gets too much bitching from his parents he can always grow it back.

I threatened to shave my head once and my gf (who has severe control freak issues when it comes to me) said she would disown me. I guess I wimped out.Health Question & Answer

He needs to weigh the pros and cons. Is this really worth getting his parents all upset and disrupting their relationship.? Maybe he just needs to give them some more time and the idea might grow on them once it sinks in a bit.

In the meantime, have him upload a picture and use photo editing software to see what he would look like with no hair. It just might scare him into not wanting to do it after all. Some people just don't have the head shape and facial features to compliment a shaved head.

Best of luck!Health Question & Answer
