worried-about-receding-hairlineName: Fahad

Question: My age is 25 and from past few months i am seeing my hairline is receding slowly slowly which is now making me worried about it and the crown area i am seeing small small bald patches when i move my hair and they are getting thinner too. So kindly i need to know what should i do to prevent it and grow my hair again.

Answer: Hi, Fahad. From what you say here, this sounds like a classic case of male pattern baldness, which can start from any time following puberty.

This genetic condition only causes hair loss around the top of the head in those who are affected, and a receding hairline as well as a thinning crown are common signs of this.

The balding process is known as follicular miniaturisation and is caused by an inherited sensitivity to the testosterone byproduct DHT. This latches on to the hair follicles around the top of the scalp, causing them to slowly perish. As this happens under the surface, the outward display is gradually thinning hair which gets increasingly weaker and can eventually lead to baldness.

There are two clinically-proven hair loss treatments available to men over the age of 18 who wish to fight male pattern baldness. The first is a daily oral tablet called finasteride 1mg; this inhibits the DHT in the body thereby reducing the chance of it having a negative effect on the follicles. The second – minoxidil – is a solution that is applied directly to the scalp where needed. At Belgravia we recommend appropriate formulations of high strength minoxidil to clients based on their needs and have seen many cases of successful hair regrowth from taking this approach. This is especially true when both components are used together as part of a combination treatment course in order to prevent further shedding and promote hair growth.
