Receding hairline

A receding hairline starts developing in men as they age while women experience more often thinning hair. However, it is possible that women experience a receding hairline. For example: frontal fibrosing alopecia and traction alopecia can cause this.

Causes of a receding hairline

 The average person's scalp has about 100.000 hairs that grow from the follicles beneath the skin's surface. Normally 50 to 100 hairs fall out and will be replaced immediately. When you suffer from hair loss or hair thinning this might be more. 

A receding hairline can be a hereditary trait and hair follicles are made too sensitive by male hormones. Men who have family members that suffer from hair loss are more likely to also lose their hair. 

Hormonal changes may cause hair loss in women. Menopause, childbirth or hormonal periods can lead to thinning hair, but the hairline will not change.

Symptoms of a receding hairline

For men, a receding hairline can start any time after the end of puberty. By the time many men reach their late 30s, they often notice a receding hairline. The receding of hairline starts around the temples. 

When around the temples your hair starts to reduce the hairline moves back across the top of the head. This often leads a ring of hair around the top of a bare scalp.

A receding hairline can also begin above the temples. The hair gets V-shaped and is called "widow's peak". The sides and back of the head can eventually become bare, though many man are usually left with some hair unless they shave it off. In women the sides and back are typically spared, but the part widens over the top of the scalp and thins considerably.
