Questions and Answers

Will growing your hair out cover up a receding hairline?


Yes, growing your hair out is one of the popular ways to minimize exposure of a receding hairline. Although it depends on the extent of hair loss you have at this point or if you have the required volume of hair to cover up that flaw. If your hair is full and you have receding hairline, you can definitely grow your hair out and style it loosely or forward. Never attempt to sport a combed over look as it will show your receding hairline more than mask it.

It depends on the type of the weakness. If the hair is brittle, then you will need everything to take the stress off the hair: change your diet, avoid exposure to the sun, avoid stresses in life, use hair moisturizers, comb your hair with bristle brushes, and wash your hair with conditioner.
