View Full Version : Mature hairline or balding

03-04-2012, 11:49 AM
Hi I was born with a receded hairline but when I was 17 years old it receded a little bit more and today Im 25 and it has stayed the same. Do you think this is a mature hairline or balding?


Sometimes i find miniaturized hairs in the edges of my hairline, I read they were normal, is this true?. How can you distinguish them from balding

From the looks of your pictures you might be going through the very early stage of MPB. If you are not losing hair rapidly you can just keep a close eye on things. If it is bothering you, you should make an appointment with a hair loss specialist to get an expert opinion. You still have a lot of hair and most people would never think you have a hair loss issue so rest easy. You might just stay this way for another 20 years.

Right now it says the photos have been removed.

Hi lukatherknopfler,

Imagestack is unbelievably annoying. Can't you boys use flickr or something else that is much less annoying. I will be honest with you, the reason I ignored your post was because I saw that you linked your photos through Imagestack. I'm not even going to try to look at photos that are shared through Imagestack anymore. It's just too much hassle.

With that said, what little I was able to see before Imagestack started pushing it's crazy nonsense on me looks like a natural and normal mature male hair line.

Hairline photos alone are not enough to determine if you are balding. You need to show good quality pictures of your mid-anterior and vertex. Pictures of only the hairline tells you almost nothing - except that you are obviously male.
