Early Signs That Indicate You Are Going Bald

When you start appearing much older than your actual age because of your receding hairline, it is the time that you take your hair loss issues seriously and take few steps to regrow the lost hair.

Recent researches indicate that people are starting to develop a receding hairline even in their 20’s. Such early hair loss is commonly known as Androgenic Alopecia and is treated commonly with a non-surgical Androgenic Alopecia treatment.

Early signs of baldness

In the natural hair growth cycle, it is normal to shed 50 to 100 hair a day. However, when you start experiencing more than usual hair loss, then this is an indication that you re suffering from a hair loss condition and you need to do something about that. Mentioned below are few more early indications of a receding hairline.

Unusual hair shedding

The very first sign which shows that you have developed a hair loss condition is experiencing more than usual hair shedding. You can identify such hair loss during the shower, under the pillow and while combing. If you are noticing that you are falling more than 100 hair a day, it is time to get your hair diagnosed by the hair expert nearby you.

Itching and flakes on the scalp

If you experience slight itching and find flakes on your scalp along with hair loss, see a doctor immediately. Although such indications are not directly related to balding or receding hairline, these can damage your scalp in the long run.

Thinning at the temple

The area at both sides of your frontal hairline is considered as the temple, it is the first place where you tend to experience hair thinning. Take a close look at the hair density at the temple, if it has become thinner than before, it means you are tending to develop a hair loss condition. [1]

Thinning at Top of the scalp

In the case the top of your head is visible due to excessive thinning, then it is a sign that you are suffering from pattern baldness.

Overall thinning

Experiencing thinning from all over the scalp is also an indication that you are suffering from a hair loss condition. Moreover, if you are unable to wear a hairstyle that was easy to do earlier, this is also an early sign that you are going bald.

“M” shaped pattern on the scalp

In hereditary hair loss condition, a frontal hairline recedes back gradually and makes an “M” shaped bald pattern on the scalp [2]. If your hair loss is followed by the same pattern, it is probable that you are suffering from a hereditary hair loss condition, also known as androgenic alopecia.
