Do all male hairlines recede?

Ad

Almost every man is likely to experience a receding hairline as he ages. Some men start losing hair in their 30s, which is commonly caused by genetics. When a man has too much of the hormone called dihydrotestosterone in his body, it takes away the nutrients from the hair follicles, causing it to stop producing new hair. This the most common cause of receding hairline for younger men, but it can also affect men later in life. Our body's capability of producing nutrients also declines naturally as we grow old. This results not only in thinning hair, but also causes other visible effects of aging.

  • Wave Shape Front Thinning' This is the type of hairline that creates a wave like shape on the forehead. Although it isn't severe yet, this may be a start of a receding hairline. Normal hairlines usually don't have any void in the forehead, so if you notice a wave shaped void on your forehead, this may be the start of a receding hairline.
  • You-Shape Front Thinning' This hairline type shows a noticeable You-Shape void on the forehead. When you have this hairline type, this means that hair receding has most likely started. Hair loss appears to be very significant and the head looks bald. This is experienced mostly by men in their 40s and up.
  • Horseshoe Shape Thinning' Men who have obvious hair receding problem have this type of hairline. The forehead will look completely bald and the crown's hair is thin to nothing. Most of men that have this hairline type are older, but some younger men who have genetic problems may also have it.

Receding hairline does not really depend on the type of hairline. There are men with very low hairline, yet they still lose their hair early. However, those men with high hairline ever since will tend to look like they are losing hair when in fact it has always been the way their hairline looked.

What is more predictive of receding hairline is the type of hair. Thinner or finer hair has more tendency to fall off early as compared to when your hair is thicker or stronger.

Males' hairlines normally start to thin and recede at the age of 25 or above, but there are also some cases when it starts during a male's adolescence period, and as he grows, his hair also starts to thin and recede.

However, based on a study by the National Institute of Health, hair will become thin and the hairline will start receding commonly in older people - Almost 65 percent of men experience baldness or have a pattern of baldness, and 25 percent of those men start having those symptoms at the age of 30.

How long does it take for a hairline to fully recede?

That will largely depend on your genes and lifestyle. A person with whom there is a hereditary line of men who has a male pattern baldness will steadily lose hair throughout the years starting in his adolescence until senile years. Genera;;y, a hairline can recede as long as the ear-lines and even cause full baldness in a person. Some person starts in the forehead, some in the temples, while others in their sideburns. Look at your male relatives or your own Father and see how his hairline is right now. A grandparent will give you a good glimpse of the potential hairline you will have in the future.

This sort of thing is very subjective. For most people it can take years for your hairline to recede enough to really even be a problem. Then it could take many more years for it to be mostly gone. You can try to look at members of your family to see when they went bald, if they did at all. Many families won't ever go bald and will only have a slightly receding hairline.

When do hairlines typically start to recede?

This actually depends from one person to another. There are people with a relatively higher hairline since birth. However, there are also people who would only start to experience this when they get a bit older, such as early 30s to 40s.

This also depends on how well you take care of your hair. If you use too much chemicals or are exposing your hair to harmful environments, such as too much blow-drying, then the likelihood of having a receding hairline much earlier is higher.

Hi, my hair has been falling out for a few years now slowly receding back from both sides. I have noticed that one side of my head is more sunken than the other, I think there might be something wrong with me as one side is always tense on the skin and sometimes is sore

Don't worry that's just natural look, after adolescence when you become an adult your hairline changes a little much like your teeth did and the skin on your cheeks. Nothing to worry about, but a good advise to follow would be , to stick to natural products to clean and style. Well if that doesn't work you could grow a nice beard :D

Is it normal to lose hair at an age of under 20?

When I was younger I was told that I have a very thick and strong head of hair. Lately it's seemed to me and one other person that my hair is now thin/thinner. I think it's most likely a result of stress because I stress a lot about things. I guess my overall question; is it normal to lose hair in the shower? I mean this hair is like 20 at the most when I rub through my hair over and over again.. I have tried: Trying to be more gentle in the shower with my hair. I'm curious to see if it's just because I hate the feeling of my hair being dirty and in general thinking I'm dirty.. I think it was caused by: Maybe being too rough? (Like I said in the last question). Stress is a probable answer because I stress a lot about the future and some Mental aspects influence this.
