Question: My hair has receded loads from one side but my other side you barely see anything tho it looks slightly thin. Anyway to prevent further loss and thinning at the front?
Answer: Hi, Harry. This sounds like a classic sign of male pattern hair loss – any receding does not necessarily appear evenly so this is nothing to be concerned about. If you have a look through our Receding Hairline Treatment Success Stories you will find many examples where clients started off with uneven receding.
With specific regard to your hairline, we have found high strength minoxidil can work well on stubborn areas such as a receding hairline. As it is a topical treatment applied directly to the scalp exactly where needed, it is easy to use on specific areas.
As you mention you have thinning hair as well as this recession, a comprehensive male hair loss treatment course may be beneficial. The daily oral tablet finasteride 1mg can help to inhibit formation of the DHT which causes genetic thinning.
Used in conjunction with minoxidil and a range of hair growth boosters suited to your specific pattern and level of shedding, you should expect to start seeing results – from stabilisation of shedding to initial regrowth – within three to four months although sometimes it may take longer depending on how advanced your hair loss is.
If you would like to try following a regrowth plan featuring clinically-proven MHRA and FDA approved treatments, we recommend doing so for at least six to twelve months in order to give the products sufficient time to take effect. That way you can better judge how happy you are with the results.
