What is Receding Hairline?

As the receding hairline sounds, it works exactly in the same way. A hairline slowly moves further up your head due to hair loss. You can easily notice a receding hairline in the early stages of male pattern baldness.

What are the symptoms of Receding Hairline?

The receding hairline may appear in many ways. It can come gradually or suddenly and affect your scalp or the entire body. the symptoms include;

  • Circular patchy bald spots
    Many lose their hair in circular patches and patchy bald spots on the scalp, eyebrows, and beard. Your skin may become painful or itchy before hair loss.

  • Gradual thinning on top of the head
    It is the most common type of hair loss, which affects people as they age. Men’s thinning hairline starts from the forehead, but in women, they have a broadening part in their hair.

  • Full body hair loss
    Medical treatments like chemotherapy for cancer result in hair loss over the body, which usually grows back.

  • Sudden Hair Loss
    An emotional or physical shock can cause hair to lose its grip and fall. You may observe that handfuls of hair may come out when washing or combing hair or even after gentle tugging. This type of hair loss may cause overall hair thinning.

  • Patches of scaling that spread over the scalp
    It is the sign of ringworm, which may be accompanied by redness, swelling, oozing, and broken hair.

You need to consider these symptoms and consult a trichologist as soon as possible for receding hairline regrowth.

What are the Most Common Causes of Receding Hairline?

Though receding hairlines are more common in men, they can occur in both men and women. Various factors are responsible for the receding hairline, that includes:

  • Hormonal changes
    Changes in hormones may trigger hair loss in both men and women. A hormone called DHT may be linked to male pattern baldness. It causes them to shrink to the point so that no hair can grow in them anymore.

  • Medications or treatments
    Some medical treatments and procedures can also cause hair loss. Treatments like chemotherapy often cause hair loss.

  • Family history
    Family history plays an important role in receding hairlines. Men with a family history of baldness are more likely to lose their hair and face hair loss issues than those with no history of baldness. There are high chances that the hair loss may follow a similar pattern to previous generations.

  • Illness or stress
    Stress or illness may cause sudden hair loss, called telogen effluvium. Generally, people experience unexpected shedding, where they lose much hair within a short period. This hair loss often switches itself without any treatment.

  • Lifestyle choices
    People who smoke are more likely to experience hair loss than people who don’t smoke at all. There may be a connection between lifestyle choices and hair loss.
    Similarly, there may be a link between receding hairline and diet. In some cases people who do not get sufficient protein may face hair fall issues.

  • Age
    Like any other factor, hair loss is also a natural part of aging. There are thousands of hair follicles on the surface of the hair, which get replaced by new ones. If for any reason a hair follicle gets damaged, it can cause hair loss and subsequently a receding hairline.

How to Diagnose an Early Receding Hairline?

Hair loss can be diagnosed and treated by a trichologist. A small sample of scalp tissue is removed to examine the tissue for scalp conditions. This process is called a scalp biopsy. Your doctor may also prescribe your blood test to examine the medical issues, such as thyroid, which can cause hair loss.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
