Indeed nearly no man gets to live with a full head of hair all his life. However, poor hair care and treatments like hair styling, perming, and colouring can cut short the already numbered days of hair strands for men.

IWhether you are still in the prime of your life or looking forward to your retirement, early signs of baldness can appear regardless of your age. If you are experiencing symptoms like bald spots, hair loss, or a receding hairline, the chances are that you are at risk of the condition called male pattern baldness.

Is Bald Spot on Crown an Early Sign of Male Pattern Baldness?

Talking about the bald spot on the crown can be the most uncomfortable conversation for any man. Unlike the flu symptoms you suddenly wake up with, a bald spot develops over months or even years. Going bald can be a nightmarish process, but it occurs in stages.

In the early stages, you might experience thinning of hair across the entire scalp area, a receding hairline, slower hair growth, or excessive hair loss with a fistful of hair coming out when brushing or bathing. These hair problems indicate the early onset of male pattern baldness (MPB). However, a balding crown is the most common and noticeable sign of MPB.

Since male pattern baldness is a gradually progressing condition, it is possible to spot signs early enough to prevent further damage and stop balding. Recognising the signs of MPB is an important step in timely seeking hair loss treatment and preventing complete, irreversible hair loss.

Causes of a Bald Spot on Crown

A bald spot on the crown is the most noticeable sign of androgenetic alopecia - a medical term for male pattern baldness. Androgenetic alopecia is a common condition affecting men of all ages. However, there are recent developments in treatment for baldness in 2022, and you can learn more about alopecia areata & its treatments through the hair experts at Advanced Hair Studio.

The root cause of bald spots and MPB is related to the presence of a certain hormone called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, in men. This powerful androgen is converted from testosterone. Although it’s important for the development of your ‘male’ characteristics (including body hair), dihydrotestosterone can cause you to lose scalp hair faster. The receptors on scalp hair follicles are sensitive to DHT. When attached to this androgen, the follicles can shrink and become incapable of holding healthy hair or growing new hair altogether.

The follicles at the hairline and the crown area are the most sensitive to DHT, whereas those on either side and back of your head are comparatively more resistant. That’s why the male pattern baldness often begins with a receding hairline or a bald patch on the head.

The presence of DHT will not create bald spots right from the beginning. Rather, your hair starts to thin slowly before the problem turns into a receding hairline. Ultimately, the hair loss happens to have the whole crown area cleared up. This entire process takes time to unfold. So, you will have enough time to catch the problem and get bald spot treatment before you lose all your hair.

What Are the Common Signs of Early Bald Spots?

Male pattern baldness is a slow process; a bald spot can sneak up on you at any age. In your daily routine, it’s not easy to notice the little changes in the hair condition at the back of your head.

However, timely prevention of MPB and effective hair loss treatment require you to spot the early signs of balding. For this reason, be mindful of two clear indications of a looming MPB problem: hair thinning in any area or across the head and a concentrated bald spot on the crown. A receding hairline is also your alarm for the risk of a balding crown.

Bald Spot on the Crown

The crown of your head is not visually accessible. However, the earliest signal of a potential MPB problem is you lose hair right at the vertex of your head. The rest of your scalp may remain unaffected with no changes in the hair volume on either side or back of your head. You can use your fingertips to feel the area for bald spots or have someone else assess the situation for you.

Hair Thinning

Hair loss isn’t always restricted to a certain area of your head. A reduction in the overall density of your hair is also a sign of MPB. Again, the problem is likely to start from the top of your head and spread to the hairline. At this time, the back of the head remains unaffected. You may find the overall hair coverage lesser in density and poor hair health or quality. The remaining hair across the affected areas will feel brittle and wiry.

The Receding Hairline

A receding hairline is a major sign of MPB, though it’s not similar to a bald patch on the head. However, it does indicate that a bald spot is on the horizon. The initial phase of a receding hairline can be difficult to spot, unlike other signs of hair loss. An easy way would be to compare your reflection in the mirror against your older pictures and assess the change in your hairline..

How Can I Stop a Bald Spot on Crown From Increasing

Although professional bald spot treatment is indispensable if you want to stop hair loss and grow hair on your bald head again, you can do certain things to control your bald spot from spreading..

  • Don’t Let Worry Take Over

    Stress and panic are the common emotions that engulf us upon catching a bald spot. For men, losing hair can feel like losing an important part of their confidence and even identity. Although it can be tough to overcome the fear of hair loss, remember that it is still possible to reverse the symptoms of male pattern baldness. Plus, managing stress is also important, or it can contribute to and accelerate your hair loss problem..

  • Change Your Hairstyle to Cover MPB Signs

    Has your current hairstyle lost its charm because of the bald spot on the crown? It’s important to go for a different hairstyle that fits your new appearance and makes you feel comfortable. Styles like a combover, a buzzcut, or a shaved head may give you the much-needed makeover. This would also help manage the emotional shock of male pattern baldness..

When Should I Consult a Hair Specialist Doctor?

Hair thinning or hair fall isn’t necessarily linked to serious health problems. Hair problems can appear for a brief period due to many factors. You might have started using harsh shampoo, undergone surgery, or been on certain medication. What’s peculiar about male pattern baldness is that it is a progressive condition. You will see it worsening over time despite your effort at preventing hair fall.

If you notice a patterned change in your overall hair on the scalp or bald spots, you must consult a hair expert for the best hair loss treatment. Timely treatment is the key to preventing and reversing MPB.

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.
