    Default What is up with my hairline folks?

    Long story short, Iím a 19 year old male. And since around 17/18 Iíve noticed a slight change in my hair line, I have lots of hair and itís relatively thick. Iíd like to know if I am receding or not, check the links below

    I see a "V", the question is, how long has it been that way? Any other signs of hair loss? More than 100 or so hairs a day in the shower, your hairbrush, etc?

    Noticed it when I was 17, no hairs on pillow or in shower.

    So, you probably have nothing to worry about.

    What about the overall shape of my hairline?

    Unless you have photos from a year or two back, showing progression, hard to tell.

    Seems like your hairline just matured, not started balding. A lot of men in their late teens/early 20s see their hairline, particularly temples, recede a little. If you look at the typical 13 year old's hairline usually they're usually very rounded, but the typical 25 year old's hairline has a bit of a peak. Usually that change happens over the course of a year or two, and then the hairline stabilizes again until balding happens later in life. Especially since you said it happened when you were around 17 and has since stopped changing, I think that's probably what's happened to you. Of course, anything is possible and there are teenagers who actually do start going bald, but if you aren't seeing your hairline actively recede anymore or seeing excessive shedding I doubt you're one of those unlucky few.

    And you can always go see a dermatologist to confirm, nobody can tell with 100% certainty over the internet.

    Thank you for your response, I did also assume it was maturing of my hairline. As I donít have any of the other symptoms. Better safe than sorry, I did also gain horrible acne at the age of 17, did this also play a part?
