    Default Rapidly receding hairline treatment?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to this sort of scene but I'm looking for some guidance into possible hair regrowth treatment.

    I'm 25 years old and have a terrible hairline. It seems almost daily that my hair is getting worst. What's weird is that my crown seems to be fine and I have relatively thick hair. My main area for concern is my actual hairline (See images).

    I'm so afraid to be this young with this type of hair loss. I like to think I still have 10+ years left before I go bald but I doubt it more and more every day.

    Any help and support with what products/treatment to look into will be amazing.

    Thank you so much

    Hi there, thanks for sharing your photos.

    When did you hair start to recede? And what is your Dad's hair like? Or your Mum's Dad's/brother's hair?

    If you want to hold on to the hair on the center of your head and your crown I would start taking finasteride. Although having said that I would do your research first as it's not for everyone.

    All the best

    Hi Diffuse, thank you for this.

    So I'd say roughly I started to loose my hair at the age of 21.

    That's the thing; my immediate family all have a full head of hair with no signs of hair loss whatsoever. In terms of it being hereditary, no one comes to mind.

    Thank you, I'll definitely have a look into Finasteride. What about possible treatments to promote the growth of hair missing in the front?

    Many thanks.

    Finasteride for 1 year min to see what it can do for you and if you can maintain with it and if your not happy but you are maintaining look into getting your hairline filled in by a REPUTABLE surgeon. I would say you wouldn't need more then 1200 grafts.

    That's the thing will MPB, it can strike even if you don't have any immediate family who have lost hair young.

    Like the other person who replied to you said, I would consider Finasteride to maintain the rest of your hair. Getting hair back on the triangles that have receded is always difficult and I'm not sure Min and derma rolling would do anything, as Min normally works on hairs that are miniaturized but still are there, and not on areas that are completely devoid of hair.

    As for a HT, this is something I don't feel qualified to comment on. However, IMHO, if you can maintain what you have I wouldn't think a HT is necessary. The receded triangles look on the forehead is quite a natural look, and as long as it doesn't get any worse, is not a bad look IMO.

    All the best.

    Thank you! I've heard that if I go down the HT route then a well established surgeon is key so thank you for confirming this. Regarding the 1200 grafts, is that a lot or very little?

    Maybe I'm just being extreme when it comes to all this and I simply need to embrace it. It's a shame because it only seems like yesterday I could fully style my hair and rock a quiff look haha (crys internally)

    I was going to ask more about this Finasteride. Is it something I can just pick up off the shelf or do I need a prescription? It is a dangerous thing to take? Also, do I need to take it for the rest of my life to maintain my current hair?

    Thank you so much for all this. It's really giving me some insight.

    Treatments for a receding hairline include topical medication, essential oils, and surgery. In men, testosterone can be converted into DHT, which can cause hair loss from a man's head.
