Whether your hair is making a steady march away from the front of your head or if it is jotting back from your temples, a visible receding hairline may be your first indication that you are experiencing hair loss in an obvious way. While many people are okay with allowing nature to take its course or to bypass the entire experience and go bald, you have decided to fight back.
Find the source. Anytime you experience a change with your body, skin, or hair, you need to evaluate what may be the source of the change. It may not be age or hereditary factors alone. You could be experiencing an exacerbation of patterned hair loss in the form of a receding hairline due to your lifestyle, habits, environmental exposures, and medical treatments. If you have changed something recently in your life along these lines, check to see if your hair loss coincided with these: you may have found the culprit.
Change your style. Those with receding hairlines can combat the appearance of them through changing hairstyles. Shorter hair or changing your part can both help reduce the visibility of this change. Those with longer hair may want to go short and free up some of the weight and drag.
Check your products. Volumizing and thickening products can be helpful in disguising your hairline. However, you have to take caution by reading labels. Avoid sodium laurel sulfate, sodium chloride, and polyethylene glycol.
Take off the hat. Hats can cause rubbing and pulling, especially in the front of the hairline. As this is the most likely area to be affected by a hat, your hat habit and collection may be ready to retire. This is in the similar vein of hair styles and those who have up-dos. Once again, for those with long hair you need to be gentle with your tresses and not pull them too tight.
Watch your basics. Stress is an enormous cause of any number of problems with your body, and your hair is no different. Having a balanced diet with plenty of water, good nutrition, and undisturbed sleep can go a long way to reducing the hairline recession.
Permanent hair restoration. If you have tried everything (and it may take a while because there are so many products and tips out there) or you want to take a proactive approach, you may want to schedule a visit with a specialist for a hair restoration treatment. The industry has come a long way since the era of bad 1990s hair plugs and painful hair relocation with stripping techniques. NeoGraft is a hair transplant systems that moves hair from the back of your head to your problem area. It is a highly effective and easy procedure that is both less recovery time as the follicles of the hair are gently suctioned out and placed into new areas. After the procedure, there is a system of rehabilitative products to make the transplants thrive. Dr. Guenthner and his team at The Dermatology Center can give you some hope for your hair future.
