What happened to my hairline?
Male pattern balding is a condition that can be passed down from generation to generation and can skip generations if lucky.
The balding genes comes directly from your mom believe it or not.
Balding can also be caused by chemical damage, lack of maintenance, disease, stress, medicines, barber malpractice, and a host of other reasons.
30% of male balding occurring in males 30 and under suffer from testosterone produced enzymes called dihydrotestosterone. What this does is choke the follicle until it becomes thin and eventually non-existent!
This percentage reaches to 50% by age 50 and higher as aging takes place.
Now we all know that age plays a huge role in the health of our hair. However what we consume, and how we care for our hair is important for growth. Here are some simple hairline health tips to give you a better chance at a full hairline for as long as possible.
How clean is your lifestyle?
A diet full of nutrients and drug free will produce silky, shiny hair.
A diet fueled by bad habits will produce hair that looks and feel in distress.
Cleansing and moisturizing the hair is important to promote a healthy growth. While reducing breakage and choking of the follicle with dirt and debris.
Now I know there are a lot of products that promise to regrow your hair with a guarantee. These types of claims I find bogus.
Before a promise can be guaranteed information must first be gathered to determine what course of action will work if at all.
if the hair is gone through injury with damaged roots the hair will never return. Hair that is loss due to stress can be nursed back to health. While Chemical damage can cause hair loss the hair has a chance to regrow as long as the roots are in tact and unharmed.
So to prescribe any products a consultation must be done first to discover what condition are you in, why is the hair gone, how long has it been gone, can it grow back.
Rogaine doesn’t grow the hair back in fact it just slows the process down. Only drawback is that if you stop using it for a while the rest of your hair will fall out.
So to keep a healthy hairline you must realize that if you have balding relatives on moms side of the family this may be a mission impossible.
THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES!
What is your grooming regimen?
While your hairline is strong and full pay close attention on your barbers skill to keep your line in its natural state. A continuous shave in the hairline with a motorized clipper can just leave that root to weak to push out anything strong enough to hold detail.
Keep the scalp cleansed free of dirt and your hair shiny and healthy. Now you can embrace a style to minimize the obvious balding, or sport a neat style with a receding line but a clean sophisticated look.
There are no tricks to a healthy hair line but my tip would be to enjoy it while you still have one. If you are receding. Know your level in which you can still wear hair.
Trying to wear full styles and a lineup are out of the question with some baldness so embrace the bald look.
On the other hand some receding hairlines can be blended with a lower cropped style.
Either way it begins with appearance! As long as your hair is neat, clean, and free of odor then you have more range to wear your hair as you see fit.
Thats it for now! Any comments or questions about your experience in balding?
