I’m 17 Years Old, How Can I Treat My Receding Hairline?

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Subar

Question: Hi I’m 17 years old. I have noticed that my hairline has been receding quite a bit lately and it is really starting to bother me (mainly because I am only 17), is there anything you can do to help?

A Good Hairdresser or Barber Should Be Able to Give You A Flattering Haircut to Help Conceal Hair LossAnswer: Hi Subar. We understand your concerns as hair loss can be stressful at any age, but particularly when it is premature.

There are two medically-proven treatments for Male Pattern Baldness that can help to regrow a receding hairline, and one of these – minoxidil – is available to teenagers from 16 years of age, upwards. The other, finasteride 1mg is only suitable for men over 18 years of age.

At Belgravia we recommend treating a receding hairline with high strength minoxidil as this has been seen to produce many Success Stories for our clients of various ages. It is a topical treatment that is applied directly where it is needed either once or twice per day as directed by your hair loss specialist nurse, following diagnosis.

There are also a range of hair growth boosters that can be used alongside this treatment and appropriate recommendations for those which are best-suited to your level and pattern of thinning will be provided by your specialist.

Furthermore, as this can be an issue for many teenagers, we recommend making sure your hair is kept in good condition through eating a healthy, balanced diet. This can also be subsidised by a hair health supplement but it’s important to follow a balanced diet too. You can find plenty of information on foods that can help hair loss and those which can cause shedding on our blog.

Speaking openly to your hairdresser about getting a flattering haircut to help conceal your hair loss in the meantime may also help to boost your confidence in relation to your hair. Freshly washed hair that is not overloaded with product also tends to look thicker, so washing your hair regularly with a gentle shampoo suited to your hair type can help to boost the hair’s appearance.

Most of all, try not to worry about your hair as not only can stress make hair loss worse, but – should you want to explore them – there are treatment options to reverse this type of receding.
