Frontal Baldness – How to Prevent and Regrow Frontal Hair Loss

Frontal Balding

Men who have achieved dramatic improvement to their receding hairline from a Belgravia treatment course for hair loss. Please click on the picture for more information on frontal baldness and what can be done.

Frontal balding, otherwise known as a receding hairline or widow’s peak, is one of the most common patterns of hair loss. This pattern of hair loss will mostly affect men, but in some cases women can also be affected. This type of frontal hair loss will usually be attributed to a condition called Male Pattern Hair Loss, which is by far the most treatable hair loss condition.

How is Frontal Balding Treated?

The Belgravia Pharmacy offers a number of medications that are designed specifically for frontal hair loss. These products are based on the licensed and clinically proven medication minoxidil. For details of the range of high strength minoxidil formulations available from Belgravia please contact the centre by calling 020 7730 6666 or message the centre. Belgravia’s treatment courses have successfully treated frontal hair loss in hundreds of men, as can be seen in so many cases displayed on the clinic’s gallery of hair loss success stories. You can also view our receding hairline page for more information and photos.

What else can be done?

In addition to minoxidil, Belgravia’s specialists offer the other clinically proven medication finasteride 1mg, and a number of hair growth boosters to ensure the very best results.

What’s best for you?

A Belgravia specialist will examine your hair and scalp or review the online consultation you have submitted in order to prescribe the treatment options most suited to you. Treatment recommendations will depend on your medical profile and your stage and pattern of hair loss, and will be carefully considered to ensure your treatment programme offers the highest chances of hair regrowth.

Hi...am 24 yrs old...I ve lost most of my hairs in frontal region to such an extent dat my scalp is visible,...ve Jus started using minox 5%...will I be able to regrow my hair and cover my scalp...If so how long should I wait??

2nd March, 2015 at 5:41 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Angel,

If you are using the minoxidil 5% as part of a comprehensive hair loss treatment course then you should start to see results - from stabilisation to regrowth - in the first 4-6 months after starting treatment. How long it takes depends very much on the cause of your hair loss condition, whether any underlying cause has or needs to be dealt with (for example, stress which can cause or exacerbate hair loss), and whereabout you are in your hair growth cycle when you start your treatment. The hair around the hairline and temples is the slowest to regrow so you should give it a minimum of 6 months to see if you start to notice any change.

is there any treatment for natural baldness?

22nd June, 2015 at 2:20 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Cynda,

There are effective treatments for female pattern hair loss. This condition usually presents as thinning hair across the top of the head and around the temples. It is most noticeable at the parting which appears to become wider as more scalp becomes visible due to this thinning. High strength minoxidil has produced significant regrowth results for many women affected by female pattern hair loss so is definitely worth investigating, alongside hair growth boosters, if you are looking to treat your condition.

4th July, 2015 at 12:44 am


My pattern baldness is more akin to female pattern baldness. My hairline isn't receding from the sides but instead from the center, I've combed my hair parted for the last 20 years and now the part is growing, the front middle part of my scalp is thinning out a lot, hairline at the front isn't that bad. What would you recommend?

Sarah Belgravia

Hello Zoya,

It sounds like you may have had an allergic reaction to the minoxidil your dermatologist gave you. We cannot send our products to Pakistan so we suggest you go back to your dermatologist who should be able to work with you on finding a more suitable solution.

Hi Jayacharan, One of Belgravia's experts has answered your question in full, here.

30th August, 2015 at 3:57 pm


Hello, they say that frontal baldness is irreversible, is this true?

1st September, 2015 at 10:35 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Jay,

It is generally possible to regrow hair lost to frontal baldness when the term refers to a receding hairline caused by Male Pattern Hair Loss. When 'frontal baldness' refers to a receding hairline in women - or very occasionally men - due to a form of scarring alopecia known as Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia, that is currently irreversible. In this instance sometimes a hair transplant can be an option and researchers are currently investigating potential treatments for this type of hair loss. For a receding hairline in men, a recommended hair loss treatment course which features high strength minoxidil has frequently produced significant regrowth results in Belgravia clients. One of our experts has also provided a more in-depth response to your question, here.

Hi my name is temitope I live in Nigerian. I have front baldness n I tink is from my childhood stage , I need help to regain it back n how can I get ur product here in Nigeria

21st September, 2015 at 11:25 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hello Temitope,

Unfortunately we cannot send our products to Nigeria. However,the information provided above regarding male hair loss treatment to help regrow a receding hairline should be helpful and you can ask a local hair loss specialist or dermatologist about these treatments.

I'm 22yrs old now I had a bald patches in front and thinning hair wat can I do to hair regrowth and cover scalp???

14th October, 2015 at 3:22 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Gopinath,

It sounds like you should visit a hair loss specialist for a professional diagnosis as you mention 'bald patches in front'. Whilst thinning hair is a classic sign of male pattern hair loss - the most common form of hair loss in men in the world - your description of frontal bald patches may be something else. We are unsure if you are referring to a widow's peak - where a receding hairline causes balding either side of the temples, forming an M-shaped hairline - or if you are experiencing actual patches of baldness. Patchy hair loss is synonymous with alopecia areata and it is possible for both alopecia areata and male pattern hair loss to occur simultaneously. Both conditions can be treated so we recommend you speak to a specialist in order to receive a full diagnosis and personalised hair loss treatment recommendations.

9th March, 2016 at 11:38 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Neeraj, In most cases of hair loss around the hairline - such as a receding hairline - minoxidil can be extremely effective, there are only a few instances where this is not the cases. Full details can be found in the full response to your query which one of our senior hair loss specialists has answered for you.

Hi Minu, we cannot advise you as to whether or not to stop treatment - this is something you need to discuss with your dermatologist - however, you may find this information helpful.

Hi Rahul, there is no proven way to regrow hair naturally. The only MHRA and FDA approved treatments for male pattern baldness are finasteride 1mg and minoxidil. You can find out more about these on our male hair loss treatment page.

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Pooja, there are no effective natural treatments for hair loss if the condition is genetic. There are two pharmaceutical products which are clinically-proven to treat male pattern baldness - including a receding hairline - and you can find out more about these on our male hair loss treatment page.

Hair loss runs in my dads side of the family, yet both my older brothers have full hair. I have tried natural treatments like saw palmetto and coconut oil but it hasn't made much of a difference over the last 4 months. Again I'm 21 and am not at all ready to loose my hair yet! Help
