How do you know if your hairline is receding?
There is no single pattern that a receding hairline follows, but there are some telling symptoms to keep an eye out for. For example, losing a lot of hair is one such symptom. It is common for people to lose dozens of hairs each day.
Causes of receding hairline
There are many causes of receding hairline.
Hair loss is usually a natural part of aging. There are thousands of hair follicles on the surface of the scalp, each growing their own hair. As these hairs fall out, new ones replace them. But if hair follicles become damaged for any number of reasons, the result can be hair loss and a receding hairline.
Hormonal changes may be the trigger for hair loss in both men and women. A hormone called DHT may have a link to male pattern baldness, as it causes the follicles to shrink to the point that no hair can grow in them anymore.
Family history seems to play a role in receding hairlines. Men with a family history of baldness may be more likely to lose their hair. The loss may even follow a similar pattern as previous generations.
Medications or treatments
Some medical procedures or treatments may also cause hair loss. A typical example is chemotherapy, which often causes a person’s hair to fall out.
Hair transplants and laser therapy
A hair transplant involves taking hairs and parts of the scalp from thicker spots on the head and moving them to the front to fill in the receding hairline. The process may be costly, but many people feel it is a more long-term solution to a receding hairline.
Laser therapy using red light or laser at a wavelength of 660 nanometers may also increase hair growth in some people and reduce male pattern baldness.
