View Full Version : Should hair on top of head be the same density as hair on back of head?

Just wondering if the density of ones head should be uniform all the way around or if it is a little normal for the back of the head to be denser or at least appear denser. Thanks!

On a relatively young person who is NOT balding, I've read that typically the crown is the most dense area, while the hairline and sides of the head are the least dense. The back of the head near the neck and middle of top of head are somewhere in between.

However, it should never be a dramatic or very noticeable unless the person is experiencing some hair loss.

As most people lose hair to some degree as they they age (even if they never go fully bald), it's normal for an older person to have thinner hair on top, male or female. It's also normal for an older man to have a hairline that looks receded, very few men keep their hairline fully intact into old age.

True but the rare case of keeping all your hair into old age should be the goal. You should aim for perfection with having as close to NW 1 as possible not just losing hair and saying oh well most men lose some.
If you lost any density then that is MPB so you can accept it and say oh well most men lose some or try what you can to keep/stop it as much as possible. I guess it depends if your a perfectionist or just someone that doesnt care about much
