How Do I Tell If My Hairline Is Receding?

How Do I Tell If My Hairline Is Receding

Looking in the mirror and knowing that your hair is slightly disappearing from the forehead, may leave you with puzzling surprise. That’s nothing else but a receding hairline, as a result of hair loss. When your hairline starts to recede, it changes the way you look. Such a hair loss is mostly an indication of a hereditary condition known as Androgenic Alopecia.

To better understand your hair recession, and how alarming is it for you? Here are few signs to look for when your hairline is receding backward.

Your hairline becomes uneven

The initial sign of a receding hairline is that your frontal hairline is uneven, means that you have lost few hairs at the temples and have developed a “V” shaped pattern. This one is also the earliest sign of “male pattern baldness” or Androgenic Alopecia.

The hair at temples are thinning

When you are unsure whether you are losing more hair than normal shedding, it becomes difficult to identify whether you are undergoing a receding hairline or not. In such a situation, you need to focus on hair thinning at the temples.

Run your fingers through the hair at temples and other parts of the head. If you find out that your hair at temples has become thinner than elsewhere, there is a possibility that you are going through a receding hairline.

You are experiencing more than normal hair fall

It is normal to lose up to 50 to 100 strands of hair a day due to the cycles that hair follicles are going through, as some of them are always in the shedding phase. However, losing more than usual hair can be an indication of a hair loss condition.

You may notice excessive hair shedding in many ways. This is commonly observed in the pillow when you are awake or during the shower. Moreover, you can observe the excessive hair loss while combing or styling your hair.

How to identify that you need to undergo a hair restoration treatment?

There are the cases in which young individuals are seeking to get a hair transplant procedure to fix their hairline. However, we don’t often suggest a hair transplant procedure for young individuals as their hair loss is unpredictable and it is hard to plan a hair transplant for future hair loss. In such cases, we recommend waiting to see until your hairline recedes more and developed a matured shape before going for androgenic alopecia treatment in UAE.
