Uncovering the Truth About Invisible Baldness

What would your reaction be if you were informed you are suffering from ‘invisible baldness’? Taken aback, mostly! This is so because many people might not have heard the term before & it sounds quite frightening too!

Let’s understand the term ‘Invisible Baldness’:

Invisible baldness is a term used to state the fact that the affected person is losing hair in great numbers & may be on the way to baldness; yet the sufferer may not be aware about it as typical signs of baldness are not visible; there is no receding hairline nor a bald patch. This is so because the thinning of hair is evenly spread all through the scalp & the mirror gives an illusionary perception of all being well. It is only after a lot of damage has taken place and almost 50% percent of follicles have been affected that one realizes the gravity of the situation.

This condition impacts both the genders and hits usually in their 30s & 40s, although some people suffer from it earlier too.

How to know if you are suffering from invisible baldness?

#1. Change in hair texture: Any change in the texture of your hair, like becoming thinner or lighter, is a sure shot way of detecting invisible baldness.

#2. Excessive hair shedding: Lots of strands coming loose while brushing or washing or sleeping, affecting the volume of your hair, is another indicator that you may be hit by invisible baldness.

#3. Family history: If baldness is in your genes you are more likely to suffer from invisible baldness.

#4. Noticeable changes after a fresh haircut: This works for those who have short hair & after a haircut notice difference in the density of hair in particular areas.

#5. Thinning ponytail: This is an easy way for females to know about invisible baldness.

What to do if you think you are suffering from invisible baldness?

If you have any of the above symptoms then it is best to go and get a professional check done. A hair expert will run diagnostic tests to ascertain the real cause of hair loss. These tests can detect hair loss during early stages and can tell the likelihood of hair thinning or balding.

#1. Hair Density Measurement: A tool checks the hair density & tells the Hair Mass Index and gives a specific idea of how much hair has been lost.

#2. Examining the Scalp: A scalp exam is mandatory to know the exact nature of hair problem.

#3. Genetic Test: A genetic test gives a pre-warning if you are at risk of hair loss & this gives time to start preventive hair treatment.

#4. Microscopic Test: A microscopic test can easily find out uneven density, other scalp issues & throw light on general health of the tresses.


Once it is ascertained that you have been hit by invisible baldness, which is the initial stage of baldness, you need to seek professional guidance for hair fall treatment at the earliest. Starting a sincere treatment will save you from experiencing the trauma of visible baldness and eventually undergoing baldness treatment.

There are options like Advanced Laser Therapy by Advanced Hair Studio which has given very promising results in not only arresting hair loss, but also stimulating deep rooted hair follicles.

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.
