View Full Version : Is my hairline receding? (Pictures included)
01-30-2016, 11:42 AM
There is no thinning at the crown area of my head, but I'm a little worried about my hairline, though. Is it just normal receding, or am I balding? I am 22 years old.

It look like a mature hairline to me, overall your hair seems pretty thick and i would've worried too much about it. However, any family history about hairloss??

Your hair/hairline looks good and strong enough.
I remember my hairline changed a bit around your age and then hairloss really startet changing after my thirties.
But we all lose our hair at different rates.
Keep an eye out on your hair but I would wait it out a few years.

I agree with christopher, your hair is thick and no recession at all..don't stress about this.

My dad has the same hairline. He's 55 and still has a thick head of hair. No balding at all. Mom's got thick hair as well, but her father is bald as hell.

I think you'll be fine do you have any uncles on your moms side that have hairloss?

No uncles on my mom's side at all. :p

Hey JackandJim0010 , hello and welcome to this great hairloss forum,,BTT.
The other members here that have responded to you are using commonsense and are being helpful to you.
(Good work guys!!)
You are only 22 years old and so you are experiencing a natural maturing of your hairline,,and that is ALL at this time in your life!
A high percentage of teenagers DO experience a maturing of their hairlines too.
It might be that you will NOT experience any serious hairloss.
No one really knows BUT you must stay very positive and do not be unnecessarily concerned about any hairloss possibilities !!
That will cause stress within you and stress WILL cause serious issues to your hairline AND eventually your health too. You want to keep the mental aspect of your life POSITIVE!
Never become worried about this or anything else in life.

Thanks alot for the help, guys. I also wanted to know what NW my hairline is on the Norwood scale.

Thanks alot for replying. I also wanted to know what NW my hairline is on the Norwood scale.
01-30-2016, 11:20 PM
Jack' I couldn't say that you have a NW scale as let.
It seems to be ONLY a maturing hairline my friend-LUCKY YOU.
No worries. Stay happy and positive.
Im off to bed now bro, it is 12:21 am here in Illinois..USA
Cheers to you

From the photos, you are losing hair on the sides of the hairline. To make a more informed decision about what non-surgical treatments you can do, you should get a couple of consultations. Recession on the hairline is normal for your age.

There are a few more pictures of the side hairline that you spoke about. Can you check it out once again? These are clearer.

Hello again JackandJim0010!
These new photos you had posted approx 6 hours ago show that your hair is still very good!
Again, you are experiencing a maturing of your hair which it certainly is 'normal for your age'.
Ill say again, do not ALLOW any stress to take over your emotions.
No reason to be stressed out,,even IF you were experiencing hairloss.
Not that you are bro'~ luckily you are NOT at this point in your life!

Thanks once again. But the above comment did say that I was losing. That's the reason I posted more and asked again.
02-04-2016, 10:21 AM
I understand what you just said.
Maturing hairlines do of course create hairloss.
That's how a mans scalp matures, there is a percentage of hairloss but it isn't the same type of hairloss for real BALDING .
Keep that in mind,a maturing hairline does have a percentage of hair loss but it is not same as balding.

Ohh, all right. Thanks alot for the patience and the replies. I'm feeling pretty confident, now. Cheers, mate.
02-04-2016, 11:26 AM
I'm glad to hear your response
once again Jack!
I am glad to help you by using true commonsense!
I am so glad that you are feeling pretty confident now!
That can only help you and your hairline to stay positive and confident!
There could be a time where you might not feel confident,,,, if that is ever the case in your life, just step back a little and be objective and reread our conversations.
I don't know if I had suggested that you take that multivitamin Biotin.
Biotin has a long and proven history of helping improve men and women's hair...
I've been taking that multivitamin for a few years now.
If you're not taking it yet you should consider it
02-04-2016, 12:01 PM
Since you've mentioned it now, I'll definitely start taking them. Thanks alot.
