Balding is different in men than it is in women, and you didn't indicate which category you are.
One thing is the same with both sexes--the $250 treatment is probably a scam.
I went to a dermatologist, who specializes in the scalp. He said that Rogaine sometimes works--but not much. There's a hormone treatment that works for men only, but is dangerous if a pregnant woman comes in contact with it. My son used this, until he got married, and it helped some. The best way is to get expensive hair plugs. This is painful, and looks really weird, and needs to be re-done, to keep up with nature's ever-receeding hair growth. That's why some of the hair-plug operations are touted as "hair clubs". Because you have to keep going back, forever. (Just like with face-lifts and breast implants, these procedures need "updating.")
My aunts became quite bald, with old age. One went to a fancy Neiman Marcus hair salon, and was still considered to be beautiful and gracious in old age. She kept trim, exercised, wore makeup, had facials (no surgery, ever), dressed nice. Her younger sister didn't do anything to maintain herself, withdrew socially, and she looked awful. Some of mother's old friends wear wigs, and others wear partial wigs. My grandmother went bald around the top of her head, but her hair around the bottom was full and long. She braided the bottom hair, and wound it around the top of her hair. She made public appearances, and speeches, and always looked nice. She advised her bald daughters to "Smile, and make a lot of faces, and no one will notice the rest of it."
It's expensive to invest in nicer clothes, facials and beauty treatments, dental care and nice teeth, and it's an inconvenience to exercise, but this is the route to go, male or female.
Work on your self-esteem. Mormonism is notorious for stripping away a person's confidence, and they preach that self-love is wicked. You must love your self, in order to love others to the full extent.
Handsomest man, ever: My cousin, who went completely bald in his early thirties, but what a great smile, and beautiful eyes, and muscles. We're talking about just looks, but he does have a sense of humor, personality, intelligence, and warmth.
Most beautiful, regal, perfect woman, ever: My grandmother with the braids.
