If you stress over balding you'll cause balding, seeing as stress is the #1 cause of loss of hair.
Instead of worrying, consider ways to improve the health of your scalp (natural herbs and essential oils such as horsetail, rosemary, etc.). Also avoid pulling on your hair or wearing hats at all times of the day, as well as putting your hair into tight ponytails.
I'm totally with Nicole, my husband has some bald spots so keeps shaving his head every few days, and i can see hair growing there if he'd just let it grow I think he'd get it back! He's 29 and been shaving his head for about 4 years now cause he says he's rather be bald than patchy, i LOVE his hair and wish he'd let it grow out
looked him up he has pretty cool dreads and if you just wear a bandana to hide the baldness then your good to go could you tell me what you think of my hair on my other discussion how long b4 balding you think my hair would be easy to lock up or ?

I would like to see more men growing long hair and locks even after going bald. I don't know what you could do to stop yourself from going bald. But you can view dreads as a spiritual commitment, instead of an image, and so they'll be something you continue to do, no matter what happens.
This is actually a big issue to me. I think that if men could accept the idea of growing the remaining hair (and beard) while they're bald, then more men might lose their fear of growing long hair.
You could look at images of Devin Townsend. He was a musician (I think? I can't remember if that's what he was) who grew locks while bald.
I probably can't say anything to make you feel better about it though.
