I’ve noticed lately that a lot of shidduch age boys are starting to bald. Aside for the reasons of why, what would be a safe and (halachacly) acceptable way of treating it before getting worse? I’ve heard about hair transplants. Does it work?
If people wore their hair “long” no one would notice that the hairline is changing. The fault lies in modern styles.The most effective treatment is to take a time machine and encourage your father to marry a woman’s whose father never went bald. Another alternative is to wear a hat.
Unlike problems such as getting fat (which you can do something about), there is little one can do. The problem wasn’t so severe in the past since most people died before they went bald – so if one avoids such things as vaccines and antibiotics and surgery that requires anesthetics you are likely to avoid significant hair loss.

Wear a toupee.

According to posts in a thread on toupees, it sounds like treating baldness would be assur. I have a hard time understanding that psak.
