Men's Frontal Hair Pieces
A receding hairline can be a disheartening sight for anyone. It’s one of the first noticeable signs of hair loss for many and is generally a sign of aging. While it most often occurs for men who are getting on in years, young men can also be affected, as can some women.
What is a receding hairline?
A receding hairline is where hair loss occurs at the front of the scalp. The hair gradually stops growing, creating bald patches that slowly get larger over time. A V-shaped area of hair may remain in the middle of the front of the scalp, but this can also recede over time. Usually, the first signs of a receding hairline can be seen at the temples at the top of the forehead, then it works its way back until the hair has thinned enough to form a bald spot on the top of the scalp. Total baldness can eventually occur, with a little hair remaining at the back of the head and over the ears.
When does a receding hairline start?
A receding hairline in men usually begins to appear in their mid-20s and gets more pronounced with age, with noticeable baldness setting in by their mid-50s.
What causes a receding hairline?
It’s normal for everyone to experience a bit of regular hair loss; the average person loses 100 hairs from their scalp every day. Those hairs soon grow back, however, as part of a normal hair growth cycle.
In some cases, losing more than 100 strands a day can indicate a medical condition or happen as a result of aging. Male pattern baldness is one of the leading causes of a receding hairline and is also the most common form of hair loss for men. The condition affects the male hairline and is not a disease but instead considered a normal variation among people. Male pattern baldness causes hairs on the scalp to become finer, shorter and lighter, and then eventually the follicles stop producing hair, although they remain alive and could, theoretically, grow hair again someday.
Genetics play the largest role in whether you will develop a receding hairline, but changes in male sex hormones can also have an effect on hair growth — particularly Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
