Aging is often not kind to our hair. It’s normal for our hairlines to begin to recede above the forehead ever so slightly. Unfortunately for many men, a receding hairline and genetic hair loss can begin as early as their late teens or early 20s. Once hairline recession starts, it is often difficult to stop.
If you’re experiencing a receding hairline or the beginnings of hair loss, the experts at Balance Hair Restoration want to help you determine the causes for your receding hairline and help you discover the best hair restoration solution for you.
What Causes a Receding Hairline?
Typically, receding hairlines are often caused by aging or other hereditary factors. However, other preventable factors can also influence hair loss and a receding hairline.
Some of these factors may include:
By employing the right treatment plan for your situation and making some changes to prevent further hair loss, a receding hairline can sometimes grow back.
Receding Hairline Strategies & Treatment Options
With so many medical and OTC options that sound promising, your dermatologist or physician might be able to point you to the right solution. Here are some strategies to start on your own.
A diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants—elements that help your body fight stress—may help nourish your hair, keeping it looking healthier and full. Many fruits, vegetables, and nuts and seeds contain these elements and are easily added to any diet.
Vitamins and minerals that are essential to healthy hair growth include:
Some shampoos strip oils from your scalp and can be particularly harsh on your hair. Change out your haircare products to those that are specifically designed to be gentle on your hair. Many shampoos and styling products are now made specifically for thinning hair to help lift the roots and stimulate growth without drying your hair.
Along with choosing products that are gentler on the hair, consider changing to a style that’s easier as well. Being too rough on your hair, brushing it too much, and wearing tight hairstyles can contribute to a receding hairline. Instead, opt for a modern style that doesn’t hide your hairline, but rather distracts from thin spots.
Over-the-counter hair loss treatments, like minoxidil, aim to treat receding hairlines. Minoxidil stimulates new hair growth in approximately 40 percent of people. However, it may take several months before you can determine whether it’s working. Once you determine these options are working for you, you will need to use them indefinitely to ensure continued growth.
At Balance Hair Restoration, we offer several medical treatments to help slow your receding hairline. These less-invasive techniques are often effective when you start them early in your hair loss. Some of these options may include prescription medications to adjust the hormone levels that are causing your receding hairline. Often, these prescriptions also promote hair growth and stop hair loss.
