Name: Abbad

Question: Hi!I am Abbad I am 19 years old and I am having a good density of hair for couple of months i have seen that my hairline is going upwards i want to ask that how much hairfall is normal and what are solutions of a receding hairline

Answer: Hi, Abbad. The amount of hair loss that is considered ‘normal’ varies but is generally around 100 hairs per day. You can find out how much hair you are losing by doing a 60 second test.

It is entirely possible for Male Pattern Baldness to affect your hairline without producing thinning hair across the rest of the top of your scalp. This genetic condition is hereditary and can start to appear any time following puberty in men with an active predisposition.

If you are starting to notice a receding hairline then the first step would be to consult a hair loss specialist who can determine your level and pattern of shedding, as well as confirming your condition diagnosis.  Following this, they will be able to tailor a bespoke hair loss treatment course, featuring clinically-proven products, designed to address your specific needs.

Usually these courses will include a recommended formulation of high strength minoxidil from Belgravia’s in-clinic pharmacies, paired with various hair growth boosters, as necessary. This approach to treating a receding hairline – which is one of the more stubborn areas of hair loss to treat – has produced many Success Stories for us, which you may want to browse in order to see how long it can take for people with different levels of hair loss to respond to treatment.

Name: David

Question: I have been using wen as a regular conditioner. I would shampoo, rinse, apply wen, rinse. Honestly I didn’t use it everyday and I stopped a month ago. But my hair is falling out rapidly now. My hair was thick. Now I look in the mirror and I see my scalp, my hair’s parting in weird ways. My hair looks damaged, it’s very flat and thin now. I’m 27, very healthy. I couldn’t figure out why this was happening till just yesterday. This product is causing my hair loss. Will my hair grow back?

WEN hair productsAnswer: Hi, David. It is not necessarily the case that the product is behind your hair loss. We are aware of the press that the wen cleansing conditioner has been receiving with regards to causing people to experience hair fall, but there are also many people who use it without reporting any problems.

In this instance it is best to have a hair loss specialist assess you and during the consultation you can inform them about your concerns regarding the wen conditioning product. If you have been using it as a conditioner, it is likely you have been applying it to the lengths of your hair rather than the roots and scalp. This minimises the chances of it being likely to cause hair loss.

It is good that you have stopped using the product you suspect may not be agreeing with you. If you stopped using it one month ago, if the conditioner was the sole cause of your hair thinning you should notice an improvement to your hair in around two more months. It could also be worth examining what was happening in your life around three months ago, before you started to notice more hair falling out than usual.

Temporary hair loss, where the hair sheds from all over the scalp, can be caused by too much stress being placed on your system. This is called  telogen effluvium and does not tend to become obvious externally until around three months after it is triggered. In addition to physical and emotional stress, the trigger can be a result of internal stress due to, for example, an underlying illness, a side effect of medication, an imbalance in the diet, or an allergic reaction. It generally lasts no longer than six months in total, though telogen effluvium treatment may help to accelerate this.

If using this conditioner is the sole cause of your shedding then yes, the hair should grow back naturally. However, unfortunately, in some instances telogen effluvium can trigger male pattern baldness in those with an existing genetic predisposition. So, if this is the case, the rate of thinning may slow down but will become more concentrated on the top of the scalp and hairline as these are the areas affected by male hair loss (not the back and sides of the head). This condition is permanent and the hair gradually grows thinner over time if left untreated. There are clinically-proven male hair loss treatments that can be combined as part of a personalised plan in order to combat this, but the hair will not grow back of its own accord.

We are not saying the conditioner is definitely not the reason, however, as you can see, there are many factors that can trigger or exacerbate thinning hair. This is why we feel the best advice we can offer you is to have a professional assess your scalp to determine why you are losing hair and noticing a decreased hair density. That way you will find out precisely what you’re dealing with and how to treat it most effectively.

SurgeryName: Janis

Question: I’ve been to five or six doctors they say I have chronic telogen effluvium, I had two major surgeries October 2015 one a neck lift and one foot surgery. When doctor wants to put me on Propecia, another wants to put me on Premarin and another one wants me to go to bio-identical replacement, my scalp burns and itches and then I noticed hair loss I don’t notice any hair regrowth. Do you have anything that would help telogen effluvium.

Answer: Hi, Janis. You would need a consultation with a specialist in order to have a thorough scalp assessment before we could provide you with treatment recommendations for your hair loss.

Chronic Telogen Effluvium can be caused by the stress of an operation or an underlying illness and it can take six months or more to clear up. It causes thinning hair all over the scalp and may not become noticeable until around three months after the trigger incident. In people with an existing genetic predisposition to pattern hair loss it can also accelerate this condition, either exacerbating existing signs of hair loss or bringing about their onset.

We do offer chronic telogen effluvium treatment courses, however, if your scalp is itching and burning there could be something else at play in addition to diffuse thinning as these are not symptoms associated with this temporary hair loss condition.

If you are based in London you can visit one of our Central or City of London hair loss clinics for a one-to-one assessment or if you are based elsewhere in the UK or abroad you can complete an online consultation which allows you to upload photos. We hope this helps.

Name: Chez

Question: Hi. I am a 23 year old man. I used hair wax (BED HEAD For Men by TIGI) in July last year. I was advised by friends to wash it before I sleep. I used it only twice. Once, I washed it before sleeping, and the other time, I delayed washing to four days. Then when I washed my hair I lost hair excessively. It shocked me to see so much hair-loss in my shower. After that, I kept losing hair for the next few months. I thought shaving my head would solve it – I did that twice. But to no avail. The hair loss ceased at one point. Untill this point, I had only been losing hair in an oval pattern on the front and like an army cut on my lower sides. Now the hair loss has returned. I’m losing hair now on the top mainly. What can be the reasons? Is this MPB or caused by the hair wax (in which case is it treatable?) Should I visit a doctor? Thank you.

Answer: Hi, Chez. It is a common misconception, but it is highly unlikely that your hair styling product is related to your hair loss.

From what you are describing here, the hair loss in an oval pattern sounds like alopecia areata, whilst the thinning on top is almost certainly male pattern baldness.

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disorder which causes rounded bald patches – either one or many – which can appear suddenly, anywhere on the scalp. There is alopecia areata treatment available to deal with this type of patchy hair loss but it is often temporary. How long the bout will last and whether or not it will recur is unknown – as is the precise cause of this enigmatic condition, though triggers are known to include shock, trauma or extreme stress. So, if you think back to what happened around the time you noticed your first bald spot, you may be able to identify what brought this on.

Male Pattern Baldness only affects the top of the scalp and the hairline. Unlike Alopecia Areata, it does not affect the sides or back of the head and also causes gradual hair thinning rather than sudden bald patches. It is a genetic hair loss condition which you inherit from your parents and, in those who are so predisposed, can be accelerated by certain lifestyle factors including stress. The onset can occur any time following puberty so, although 23 is young for this type of hairloss to start, it certainly not uncommon.

In order to ascertain exactly what is going on with your hair, assuming you are otherwise in good health, we recommend you have a consultation with a hair loss specialist. They will be able to assess you and provide a professional diagnosis of your condition – or conditions, as it is possible to experience more than one simultaneously. Additionally, they will be able to tailor a bespoke hair loss treatment programme to suit your specific needs and recommend the most effective course of action.

Hair Loss - BrushName: Renny

Question: Can thin hair be reversed to thick volume? I didn’t have thin hair in the past but lately I’ve experienced extreme thinning… I don’t know why but it got thin all of a sudden.

Answer: Hi, Renny. You would need to see a specialist for a precise diagnosis as to what is causing your hair loss given we cannot provide this based solely on the information you have provided.

Sudden hair thinning is often caused by a temporary condition known as Telogen Effluvium. This is more common in women than men but can affect both genders. It causes diffuse hair loss all over the scalp and tends to occur around three months after a sudden shock or extremely stressful incident. Causes can also include extreme weight loss, dietary deficiencies, an underlying illness, or it can be a side effect of some prescription medications.

The hair falls out when this event throws the hair growth cycle out, prematurely sending some follicles into the shedding and resting phase, temporarily. This causes a drop in overall hair density. Once the cycle resumes normal service, the hair tends to grow back of its own accord within six months from the initial trigger but telogen effluvium treatment is also available to help accelerate this process.

If the shedding is located solely around the top of your scalp and/or around the hairline, especially the temples, it is more likely to be androgenetic alopecia – more commonly known as male or female pattern hair loss. This is a permanent, genetic condition which you inherit from your parents and which causes gradual thinning though it is not uncommon for people to not notice the early signs of hair loss associated with this condition, so its onset can feel more ‘sudden’ than it actually was.

There are clinically-proven hair loss treatments available to stabilise the hair fall and promote regrowth in cases of pattern hair loss, so depending on your diagnosis, this may be an option for you. Once you have had a professional assess you and confirm the cause of your hairloss, the specialist will recommend a customised treatment course to help restore your hair density, based on their findings and your medical suitability.

Name: Mark

Question: Hi I’m a 16 year old guy and I have a receding hairline. I’m extremely self conscious about it and try to use gel but that doesn’t work . My parents aren’t really helping saying “You have a high forehead is all”. But with people in school saying things I want a change. This would really boost my confidence I was wondering is it safe and am I too young? I’m a nice guy I just hate this about myself. I needed to get that out thanks.

High forehead maturing hairline teenage hair lossAnswer: Hi, Mark. At 16 years old you have time on your side even if you are experiencing hair loss so firstly – and we do appreciate that this is easier said than done – try not to worry about your hairline. Your hair has no bearing at all on whether or not you are a nice person and you are far more than just your hair. Try not to let this concern define you or affect your self-confidence.

It is entirely possible that you have a high forehead, as your parents suggest. A good example of someone with a high forehead is the Avengers actor Tom Hiddleston. This is not a type of hair loss and is simply where the hairline lies naturally. If you do not like where your hairline is positioned, a haircut that disguises this is a simple and effective solution. Talk openly to your hairdresser or barber about your concerns – they will be used to hearing this, it is absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about – and see what ideas they have for hairstyles that will suit your face shape and draw attention away from your hairline.

Another possibility is that you have what’s known as a maturing hairline. This is something that young men experience during puberty and can be more noticeable in some than in others. As your body, including your face, starts to change, your hairline also tends to become more rounded. This change is often misdiagnosed by teenagers as a receding hairline but this is not actually the case.

A true receding hairline or widow’s peak is caused by genetic hair loss, commonly referred to as Male Pattern Baldness. It is often – but not always – accompanied by hair thinning elsewhere around the top of the head as this is the area affected by the condition. Whilst it can begin any time following puberty, MPB usually starts in a man’s twenties or even thirties. Premature hair loss is possible, however, as you are 16 we would recommend just keeping an eye on your hairline for now.

If over the next 12 months it continues to recede, or if the hair on the top of your head also begins to thin, then have a professional consultation. Then a hair loss specialist can assess you and provide a diagnosis of your condition as well as recommendations for a customised hair loss treatment course tailored to your needs. There are two pharmaceutical medications that are both clinically-proven for the treatment of male pattern hairloss. These are minoxidil and finasteride 1mg. As with any medications, there are potential side effects associated with their use, which are discussed with clients before they make any decision as to their treatment, but both are considered to be safe if used as directed. They have both been approved by both the UK and USA medical licensing boards – the MHRA and the FDA – and are currently the only pharmaceutical hair loss treatments with these approvals.

At Belgravia clients who are 16 years of age or over are eligible for minoxidil-based courses whereby topical applications of high strength minoxidil solution are applied directly to the scalp, where needed, once or twice per day as directed. This approach can be further augmented by the use of hair growth boosters, where appropriate. When you reach 18 years of age you also have the option of adding in a once-a-day pill of finasteride 1mg, although all this also depends on your general medical suitability. If this is something you feel cannot wait, you are very welcome to have a free consultation now if it would help to put your mind at rest, however – as before – at 16 years old, time is definitely on your side so there is no need to take any action immediately.

Curly hair young manName: Pat

Question: I have very thick hair and curly. I used to have a a straight hairline but as i matured my hairline has scaled back into the more common M shape. My family on both sides doesn’t have history of male patterned baldness however I am slightly worries. Again my hair is very thick and I am 20.

Answer: Hi, Pat. It is possible to have no signs of hair loss on top – as you mention you have very thick hair – but to still have a receding hairline.

However, if there is no history of male pattern baldness then it is unlikely that you will experience it, though not impossible. The ‘balding gene’ can be present and passed on without being active. If the gene does become active, this is when thinning hair and/or a receding hairline will start to gradually appear.

Without examining you or at least seeing photos of what you describe, we can’t confirm for sure but it seems fairly likely that a maturing hairline is the case here. During puberty your face changes shape slightly. As a result, your hairline can also change shape though this is more noticeable in some people than in others. This is not a hair loss condition and is not usually anything to be concerned about.

If your hairline continues to recede over the next six months, and its current widow’s peak shape, where it recedes at the temples, becomes more prominent, we would suggest having a hair loss specialist assess you so you can get a personalised diagnosis. There are hair loss treatments available to deal with a receding hairline, should that become a problem, so either way there’s nothing to worry about!

Name: Tarun

Question: Does the hairs which have fallen in winters grow again in summers?

Answer: Hi, Tarun. The hair growth cycle works constantly to grow and renew hair, with various hairs being in different stages of this cycle simultaneously. Hair normally actively grows for around three to six years, and sheds for around six to eight weeks before new hair starts coming through again. It is also true that the amount of hair loss can vary depending on the season.

Hair Growth Cycle DiagramWhilst it would make sense for us to shed more hair in the summer in order to make our scalps cooler, and to hoard more hair in the winter to keep our heads warm, seasonal hair loss actually works the opposite way. The primitive need to protect our scalps from the sun is believed to be the historical reason behind why we shed more hair in the colder months than in the warmer ones. This increase in shedding is still fairly minimal and tends to last for around a few weeks, usually starting from around October/November time.

It is important to note that this type of cyclical hair fall happens to everyone to some extent and is not just for those who have a hair loss condition.

If you are also experiencing male pattern baldness then you may not see as much of an increase once the seasonal shedding has passed. This is because, unless you are using hair loss treatment to stabilise thinning and promote regrowth, your follicles will still be subject to the effects of this hereditary concern. The key sign of this is ongoing, gradually thinning hair – often at the back of the head at the crown, on top or at the temples causing a receding hairline. As such, once the seasonal shedding passes you may not notice much of a change along the top of your scalp – the area affected by male hair loss – as your hair may have deteriorated during this time.

Shampoo Hair LossName: Mike

Question: I previously used Body Shop Ice Blue shampoo hitch was brilliant and seemed to control hair loss. Unfortunately this product was discontinued; I then switched to Alpecin, I also used its hair tonic. I have used this for over three years, always keeping it on my scalp for two minutes or more. I can truly say since using it my hair loss has got a lot worse. This product certainly has NOT helped one joy

Answer: Hi Mike, it is a common misconception but shampoo does not treat hair loss, and neither does hair tonic. This is the likely reason that – as is the case with male pattern baldness – your hair thinning has increased over the years and is getting worse.

Male pattern hair loss leads to gradually thinning hair anywhere/all over the top of the scalp and hairline, which deteriorates year after year at a rate which differs from person to person. This rate can be accelerated by lifestyle factors including stress, diet and smoking or as a side effect of illness or prescription drugs. As it is a permanent condition, this thinning will continue and may lead to baldness, unless treated.

There are no shampoos medically-proven to treat hair loss, however there are two medications which are both MHRA and FDA approved for this purpose. You can find out more about these on our Male Hair Loss Treatment page.

Drugs - Medication and Hair LossName: Mary-Anne

Question: My son of 18 is starting to have a receding hairline. He has been taking a medication called Vivance for ADHD and we are wondering if that could be the cause of it. I have been taking Silicea for my brittle nails and it works very good for nails. In the information for Silicea it also says that it helps with hair quality and skin complexion. What do you think of this?

Answer: Hi, Marie-Louise. Unfortunately as your son is not a client and therefore we do not have access to his medical records we cannot give you any specific medical advice of this nature. What we can tell you is that some medications can cause hair loss as a side effect and this is almost always listed as a potential side effect on the Patient Information Leaflet which is included with the medication.

If your son did not receive one of these leaflets with his medication you can look it up on the drug’s website or ask whomever dispensed the medication for another copy.

Another reason new medications can cause initial hair fall from all over the scalp is that the body take a while to adjust to what it can at first see as an ‘invader’.

If either of the above scenarios are the case, the hair loss usually becomes noticeable around three months into taking the medication and should clear up within another three to six months of its own accord. This condition is known as Telogen Effluvium and can be treated professionally despite being temporary.

However, if your son is solely experiencing a receding hairline and no shedding from elsewhere on his scalp, it is most likely to be male pattern baldness.

This can be triggered or exacerbated in those with a genetic predisposition to the condition by stress – physical or emotional. So, if your son has been having difficulties before or since taking his new medication, it could be this pressure or anxiety that has accelerated this hereditary condition. Male hair loss can present any time following puberty so, although it tends to be more common in men in their 20s and over, premature hair loss is actually fairly – and increasingly – common.

Taking a vitamin or mineral supplement will not treat genetic hair loss; although we have no knowledge of the product you mention, hair vitamins and these types of products are designed to help improve the quality of the hair, not to treat hair loss. As such, although they may be useful alongside clinically-proven treatments, they are unlikely to help on their own.

As it seems you live abroad, we would advise your son to complete a quick Online Consultation so that he can fill out the relevant form and upload photos. After this, one of our specialists can provide him with a personalised diagnosis of his condition and recommendations for hair loss treatments, as appropriate.
