Thinning hair and the process of balding is a very emotional experience. I find it offensive that some of the answers you got were very insensitive.
My advice to you is that you find out the reason why you're so scared of being bald, and hopefully find ways to solve it. At 23, balding isn't something that's too unusual. Some people show signs of balding even in their teens.
Yes, you are too young to consider transplants. What if later on you lose the hair you have now? I think people usually wait a little longer before they consider that. But again it's up to you.
The answer lies in the fact that you have to find what it is that makes you scared of being bald then solve it. Shaving one's head is actually pretty normal now. You might want to consider that, if the thinning hair makes you self-conscious.
One final word of advice, shaving one's head should be because they want the hair to be gone, not because they're hoping hair will grow back thicker. Most likely, it won't grow back thick enough to cover up the baldness.
Questions about the bald eagle?
1. The term "bald" may be from the Old English word balde that meant white. sandiegozoo.org
The bald eagle's scientific name signifies a sea (halo) eagle (aeetos) with a white (leukos) head. At one time, the word "bald" meant "white," not hairless. baldeagleinfo.com
2. A bald eagle can reach a speed of up to 200 miles per hour (322 kilometers per hour) when diving through the air to grab a meal. sandiegozoo.org
Bald Eagles have been recorded at 44 miles per hour in level flight. They seldom dive vertically on their prey, preferring to decend more gradually and snatch fish, rabbits, etc. with their feet. Their diving speed is estimated at 75 to 100 miles per hour. They can fly to altitudes of 10,000 feet or more, and can soar aloft for hours using natural wind currents and thermal updrafts. eagles.org
Bald eagles can fly to an altitude of 10,000 feet. During level flight, a bald eagle can achieve speeds of about 30 to 35 mph. baldeagleinfo.com
3.About half of the world's 70,000 bald eagles live in Alaska. baldeagleinfo.com
After nearly disappearing from most of the U.S., the bald eagle is now flourishing and no longer needs the protection of the Endangered Species Act. The nation’s symbol has recovered from an all-time low of 417 nesting pairs in 1963 to an estimated high of 9,789 breeding pairs today, and will be removed from the list of threatened and endangered species. fws.gov
4. Life span: 25 to 40 years -sandiegozoo.org
Longevity - Wild bald eagles may live as long as thirty years, but the average lifespan is probably about fifteen to twenty years. A captive eagle at West Stephentown, NY lived to be at least 48 years old. baldeagleinfo.com
5. Range: Canada, United States, and northwest Mexico
Habitat: coastlines, lakes, rivers, swamps, and marshes -sandiegozoo.org
Bald eagles live only in North America. Historically, they inhabited the entire continent wherever there were adequate nest sites and an abundant supply of fish. However, due to human activities, bald eagle populations have declined dramatically throughout most of the species' range. While small numbers of eagles presently nest in many regions of North America, the largest breeding populations are in Alaska and Canada. dnr.state.wi.us
6. Habitat: coastlines, lakes, rivers, swamps, and marshes -sandiegozoo.org
Habitat - Bald eagles live along the coast and on major lakes and rivers where they feed mainly on fish. baldeagleinfo.com
The Bald Eagle prefers habitats near seacoasts, rivers, large lakes, and other large bodies of open water with an abundance of fish. Studies have shown a preference for bodies of water with a circumference greater than 11 km (7 miles), and lakes with an area greater than 10 km² (3.8 square miles) are optimal for breeding bald eagles.
The Bald Eagle requires old-growth and mature stands of coniferous or hardwood trees for perching, roosting, and nesting. Selected trees must have good visibility, an open structure, and proximity to prey, but the height or species of tree is not as important as an abundance of comparatively large trees surrounding the body of water. Forests used for nesting should have a canopy cover of less than 60 percent, and as low as 20 percent, and be in close proximity to water.
The Bald Eagle is extremely sensitive to human activity, and occurs most commonly in areas free of human disturbance. It chooses sites more than 1.2 km (0.75 miles) from low-density human disturbance and more than 1.8 km (1.2 miles) from medium- to high-density human disturbance. wikipedia.org
HABITAT & RANGE: Bald Eagles live near large bodies of open water such as lakes, marshes, seacoasts and rivers, where there are plenty of fish to eat and tall trees for nesting and roosting. Bald Eagles have a presence in every U. S. state except Hawaii. Bald Eagles use a specific territory for nesting, winter feeding or a year-round residence. Its natural domain is from Alaska to Baja, California, and from Maine to Florida. Bald Eagles that reside in the northern U. S. and Canada migrate to the warmer southern climates of the U. S. during the winter to obtain easier access to food, especially fish. Some Bald Eagles that reside in the southern U. S. migrate slightly north during the hot summer months. eagles.org
Bald eagles live near rivers, lakes, and marshes where they can find fish, their staple food. Bald eagles will also feed on waterfowl, turtles, rabbits, snakes, and other small animals and carrion.
Bald eagles require a good food base, perching areas, and nesting sites. Their habitat includes estuaries, large lakes, reservoirs, rivers, and some seacoasts. In winter, the birds congregate near open water in tall trees for spotting prey and night roosts for sheltering. fws.gov
7. Humans, in short.
There is no single cause for the decline in the bald eagle population. When Europeans first arrived on this continent, bald eagles were fairly common. As the human population grew, the eagle population declined. The food supplies for eagles decreased, because the people hunted and fished over a broad area. Essentially, eagles and humans competed for the same food, and humans, with weapons at their disposal, had the advantage. As the human population expanded westward, the natural habitat of the eagles was destroyed, leaving them fewer places to nest and hunt, which caused the population of bald eagles to decline sharply by the late 1800s.
By the 1930s, people became aware of the diminishing bald eagle population, and in 1940 the Bald Eagle Act was passed. This reduced the harassment by humans, and eagle populations began to recover. However, at the same time DDT and other pesticides began to be widely used. Pesticides sprayed on plants were eaten by small animals, which were later consumed by birds of prey. The DDT poison harmed both the adult birds and the eggs that they laid. The egg shells became too thin to with stand the incubation period, and were often crushed. Eggs that were not crushed during incubation often did not hatch, due to high levels of DDT and its derivatives. Large quantities of DDT were discovered in the fatty tissues and gonads of dead bald eagles, which may have caused them to become infertile.
More than 100,000 bald eagles were killed in Alaska from 1917 to 1953. Alaskan salmon fisherman feared they were a threat to the salmon population.
Public awareness increased, and many states placed the bald eagle on their lists of endangered species in the 1960s and early 1970s. Many dedicated individuals and groups worked to make the conservation of eagles a national issue.
Bald eagles were officially declared an endangered species in 1967 in all areas of the United States south of the 40th parallel, under a law that preceded the Endangered Species Act of 1973. imageThe Endangered Species Act was signed into law in 1973 by President Richard Nixon. This landmark legislation is regarded as one of the most comprehensive and important wildlife conservation laws in the world. Federal and state government agencies, along with private organizations, successfully sought to alert the public about the eagle's plight and to protect its habitat. On July 4, 1976, the US Fish and Wildlife Service officially listed the bald eagle as a national endangered species.
Until 1995, the bald eagle had been listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act in 43 of the 48 lower states, and listed as threatened in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Washington and Oregon. In July of 1995, the US Fish and Wildlife Service upgraded the status of bald eagles in the lower 48 states to threatened.
Only a handful of species have fought their way back from the United States' endangered species list. The California gray whale, the American alligator, and the bald eagle are a few. Once endangered in all of the lower 48 states, the bald eagle's status was upgraded to "threatened" in 1995, two decades after the banning of DDT and the passing of laws to protect both eagles and their nesting trees.
Causes of death to the bald eagle are:
1. Fatal gun shot wounds by careless and ignorant recreational hunters, malevolent people, and those hunting them for their feathers and talons to sell on the black market.
2. Electrocution from taking off and landing on power poles when their large wings bridge two wires, resulting in fatal burns or heart failure.
3. Lead poisoning from eating wounded deer, ducks, and other game which eluded the hunter and later died. Three pellets can kill an eagle.
4. Less adept at hunting, young eagles are more likely to eat carrion, and possibly ingest poisoned meat used to bait wolves and coyotes.
5. Collisions with vehicles.
6. Starvation where the food is scarce. Up to half of them starve to death their first winter, due to lack of hunting skills.
7. If an eagle ends up in the water due to misjudgment of altitude or snagging a large fish, there's a danger they may die of exposure.
Forty years ago, our national symbol was in danger of extinction throughout most of its range. Habitat destruction and degradation, illegal shooting, and the contamination of its food source, largely as a consequence of DDT, decimated the eagle population. Habitat protection afforded by the Endangered Species Act, the federal government’s banning of DDT, and conservation actions taken by the American public have helped bald eagles make a remarkable recovery.
....However, disease, lack of food, bad weather, or human interference can kill many eaglets.... fws.gov
Do women find bald men attractive?
yes bald men can be attractive. my husband is prematurely balding and i find that for him, he's sexier bald than with his receding hair. it's not necessarily better to go bald than to have hair but losing some. some guys look good with hair and are losing and some look good with the bald look. you'll have to look into certain products to help keep the bald look up if that's what you decide to do. a good razor and shave cream or shave soap helps. keep the head from getting dry by putting lotion on it.
