“I Have Thick Hair But it’s Thin at the Front”

Name: Hanan alyafei

Question: I have thick hair but it always been thin from the front

Answer: Hi, Hanan. It is possible to have thinning hair in a specific area, particularly if it is caused by genetic hair loss.

Seeing extra hairs in your hairbrushIn men, one of the key signs of male pattern baldness can be a receding hairline whilst, although frontal hair loss is less common in women, those with female pattern hair loss can also experience thinning around their hairline.

Another possible reason you may have thick hair that is thin at the front could be due to Traction Alopecia. This is a hair loss condition caused by wearing tight and/or weighty hairstyles, such as braids or cornrows, repeatedly. The excessive tension these styles place on the hair follicles causes extra stress to the hairline which may start to thin and recede. Additional balding patches where the hair was tied or fixed may also become noticeable.

Treatment, often featuring high strength minoxidil, is a popular way to deal with both these types of shedding so we recommend you speak to a hair loss specialist if you are looking to prevent further thinning. They can provide you with a diagnosis of your condition as well as personalised recommendations for hair loss treatments and boosters to target the relevant area, helping to promote regrowth and improve the hair’s health.
