Receding Hairline – Prevent and Regrow a Receding Hairline

Many say that it’s not possible to regrow a receding hairline but The Belgravia Pharmacy offers a range of high strength minoxidil products which clients have used to great effect, seeing unprecedented levels of hair regrowth to their frontal areas of hair loss or baldness. Hugo uses a treatment course based around formulations of the two medically proven medications for hair loss inclusive of various HairReceding Hairline Growth Boosters. The treatments are specially combined to ensure both the stubborn areas and the overall thinning are targeted.

As you can see from the photos, Hugo experienced considerable hair regrowth at his areas of frontal hair loss – in the photo from month 4 the new hair is much shorter than the rest of his hair so the difference is clear to see. There are also many more receding hairline regrowth photos at the bottom of this page.

comment male pattern hair lossHugo’s Comments: After 3 months of treatment I can’t believe the results.  Thank you so much Edyta and The Belgravia Centre. I’m so happy.”

Hugo’s hair loss is caused by a genetic condition called Male Pattern Baldness. This form of hair loss affects each person differently – some will begin to see signs of thinning at an early age while others will be affected later on in life. Some will become completely bald without treatment and some will experience a much slower progression resulting in less severe thinning. Genetic hair loss also takes different shapes – some men will lose their hair predominantly at the temples (hairline) whereas others experience hair loss from the crown, and for some the hair will diffusely thin all over the top of the scalp.

Receding Hairline GrowthDuncan is another Belgravia treatment course user that has seen vast amounts of regrowth at his temples and crown.  “I always had a nasty feeling that my hair loss would catch up with me after seeing it affect so many members of my family. I decided I didn’t want to go down the same path as them and do nothing. With the medication and building the laser in to my weekly routine, I couldn’t be happier with the results.  Everyone who is still unsure should go for it. The quicker you start, the quicker you can get the constant burden off your mind! Many thanks.” You can see Duncan’s ‘Success Story’ page here.

Duncan and Hugo’s comments can be found in Belgravia’s comments book, which is kept on the clinic reception. There are also hundreds more from happy hair loss treatment course users. They are all displayed in Belgraviacentre.com’s ‘Hair Loss Success Stories’ section (click on the link to view them all, as well as photos). Patients also regularly comment on our Facebook Page.

Although there are hundreds of treatments advertised for the prevention of hair loss there are in fact only two that are medically proven. The Belgravia Centre offers specially tailored treatment programmes based around these medications as well as added hair growth boosters. Treatment programmes are personalised for each individual to meet their needs and ensure optimum results for their specific case of hair loss. These treatment programmes ensure the highest chances of hair regrowth available. We have provided some more ‘before and during treatment’ photos below for your perusal.

I'm 20 years old with a receding hairline and slightly thinning hair. I was wondering how much it would cost to have the hairline back to its normal self and if hair transplant is nessary or if medicines are better to use?

7th November, 2012 at 12:47 pm


Hi Jay, Thank you for your question. The best thing to do would be to visit the centre for a tricho-check so we can determine the cause of your hair loss and recommend the best form of treatment for you. If it is not possible for you to visit the London centre you can fill out our on-line diagnostic form here http://www.belgraviacentre.com/online_diagnosis/ Please check your email as I have sent you somemore information.

15th November, 2012 at 12:18 pm


Hi Amir, The cost depends on the treatment programme that is recommended for the individual, which is dependent on the hair loss sufferer's condition, stage and pattern of hair loss. We advise you visit for a free consultation so that we can diagnose your condition and recommend the most effective course of treatment. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hello I'm 16 and I'm not sure if I'm receding but I'm going crazy and really paranoid I should be losing hair at this age I need help getting stressed and keep looking and seeing if it's changing but it's not please help!

6th December, 2012 at 11:11 am


Hi Mark, Thank you for your comment. Rest assured you are not alone in feeling 'paranoid' about your hair loss, so don't worry you are not 'going crazy'. I think the best thing for you would be to come to the centre for a free tricho check appointment, I have emailed you further details. We look forward to hearing from you.

9th December, 2012 at 1:28 am


Like Mark in the comments i'm in the same boat, i'm paranoid about my hair. I'm 18 and already have a very poor hairline, iv grown my hair out very long so i'm able to cover it up, it also feels as though it may be thinning on top. I can already see iv developed my dads hairline. By the time he was 30 he had a big bald patch and a very receded hair line. It looks as though my hair is just going the same way as his. I wouldn't mind if this was happening in my 30's, but it really has affected my confidence with me being just 18. I hate the fact that i'm forced to have long, messy hair, i wish i was able to have a nice hair cut that actually suited me. I'm at the point now, where i have so little confidence in myself, that i refuse to have any pictures taken of me, because i don't want to look back at them when i'm 20 and see how much hair loss there has been in the past 2 years. Would something like a hair transplant be beneficial for me in the future? And at what age should i even be considering something like that? What should my next step be.?

10th December, 2012 at 4:32 pm


Dear Adam Thank you for your enquiry. Although we don't perform hair transplants at the centre we can offer you an alternative solution for hair loss conditions. Our medically proven treatment courses can not only prevent hair loss but regrow hair for many men and women. Results can be as good as, if not better than a hair transplant without the need for surgery. Please find further information on our website http://www.belgraviacentre.com/hairtransplant/ and check out our success stories whilst you are there at http://www.belgraviacentre.com/blog/category/success-stories/

What age does a receding hairline start? I am 21 with a thick head of hair. My biggest fear is getting a receding hairline. My dad is 46 and hasn't lost any hair

31st December, 2012 at 12:51 pm


Hi Zaidi, Thank you for your enquiry. There is no specific age that a receding hairline will start. Hair Loss effects people in different ways and at different stages of life. If you are concerned about your hair loss the best thing to do would be to visit the centre for a tricho-check so we can recommend the best form of treatment for you. If it is not possible for you to visit the London centre you can fill out our on-line diagnostic form here http://www.belgraviacentre.com/online_diagnosis/ We look forward to hearing from you soon.

I dunno why my hair are bad and I don't know how to make them right. I want strait and symmetrical hair line. I have the same problem that Jon Bon Jovi have.

7th October, 2014 at 3:42 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Vinayak, from what you describe, if you have patchy hair loss that appears circular in shape, it could be alopecia areata.

If you would like a full assessment of your condition, please contact us to book a free hair loss consultation, or if you cannot get to either of our Central London hair loss clinics, you can complete our Online Consultation.

Following that they can discuss the costs for these treatment options. As a guide, our 12 month treatment plans generally start from around £600.

Hi Ibrahim,

Unfortunately we are currently unable to send our hair loss treatments to Somalia. We suggest you speak to your doctor, dermatologist or a local hair loss expert who should be able to help you with this, however it is worth noting that in the UK hair loss medications are only available to men aged 18+.

9th November, 2014 at 8:41 pm

Hello Jonny,

There are effective hair loss treatments available for male pattern baldness (a receding hairline is a classic sign of this hair loss condition). For more personalised advice, please either come in for a free hair loss consultation or complete our online consultation where you can upload pictures so we can advise based on your specific level of shedding.

Hi, I am a 20 year old with a receding hairline. I have no real issues with my hair but I was wondering if they're any treatments on that one particular issue (receding hairline) and how much it will cost? Thank You

26th November, 2014 at 10:36 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Michael,

A receding hairline is a sign of male pattern baldness so the treatments for male hair loss would apply here. Whilst the Propecia helps to block the DHT which causes this type of hair loss, the minoxidil is applied specifically to the areas where you are thinning in order to spur on localised regrowth - in this case around your hairline. Our comprehensive hair loss treatment courses generally start at around £600 per year but one of our treatment advisers would be able to give you exact details based on your situation and choice of treatment. If you would like to book a free consultation at one of our Central London hair loss clinics please call us on 020 7730 6666 or if you are unable to come to London, you can complete our Online Consultation.

Nowshin Neaz

Hello Mam,i'm 21years old. I have been suffering from frontal hair loss from so many years but,i can't find any treatment for this. I've tried a lot of things to regrow my hair but,nothing had worked. Please suggest me the remedy of it.

16th December, 2014 at 4:44 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hello Nowshin,

Male Hair Loss treatments will help to regrow a receding hairline. Minoxidil has been found to be particularly effective in regrowing hair in stubborn areas, such as the temples which is where hair tends to take the longest time to grow back. You can either visit one of our Central London hair loss clinics or complete our Online Consultation if you are unable to visit us in order to have a free assessment of your condition and stage of hair loss. Your hair loss specialist will then recommend the most effective treatment for you.

31st December, 2014 at 4:21 am


Is there a way you can determine why my hair is thinning if I just told you that I have the V shaped hairline and a thinning crown? I'm 21 and my hair as a whole hasn't been falling out any more than usual it's just not growing anymore so now the hair loss is noticeable..

6th January, 2015 at 12:05 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Dylan,

If you are experiencing a thinning crown then this is likely to be a sign of genetic hair loss caused by male pattern baldness. If you have a V-shaped hairline, this could either be a natural widow's peak or a receding hairline - the best way to find out if you have a specific hair loss condition, such as male hair loss, is to make an appointment to visit a specialist for an expert diagnosis, or you can complete our online consultation if you are based outside London. You can upload images to the online form to help with your diagnosis.

Hi, I'm a 16 year old black male, and my hairline has been receding since I was 13. This has really hurt my confidence and I hate taking pictures because of how bad my hair looks. My dad lost the majority of his hair when he turned 28 and I'd really like to keep my head of hair as it should be at such a young age. Are there any home remedies I can try? How old should I be if I'm considering a hair transplant? Thanks

19th January, 2015 at 12:10 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Ryo,

Hair loss treatments for male pattern baldness are available but are only suitable for men who are over age 18. Surgical hair transplants are generally not recommended for men before they are at least 25. In terms of home rememdies, there are many for keeping your hair healthy, including via your diet, but none for actually treating or reversing male hair loss. The only treatments medically-proven to do this are the medications Propecia and minoxidil which are unsuitable for you at this age. For now we would encourage you investigate ways to help boost your self-esteem and to try not to worry about your hair loss as stress can make the shedding worse. Also, do talk to your barber about haircuts that flatter thinning hair. Generally keeping it short will make the hair loss less noticeable.

27th January, 2015 at 9:53 pm


Hi, I'm 21 and I've only recently started to become conscious of my hairline. I've been living with my receding hairline from around 17 and I've starting to notice a lot of my hair is starting to thin around my temples. I'm a fully qualified hairdresser so my hair and the appearance of my hair matters a lot to me, more so now than ever. I'd love to be able to tie my hair back from time to time but my hairline makes me so insecure. What's the best advice you can give me? I'd love to visit your centre in London it's just affording getting there with prices of today.

2nd February, 2015 at 1:09 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Beau,

There are two clinically-proven medications used to treat male pattern baldness – Minoxidil and Finasteride 1mg - which we will happily discuss with you, should you decide to visit one of our clinics for a free consultation with one of our hair loss specialists. If this is not convenient, you could also complete our online consultation form. Meanwhile, try to keep your scalp and hair healthy, and avoid tying your hair back too tightly as this could lead to another type of hair loss, called Traction Alopecia.

8th February, 2015 at 10:10 am


hi i am 24 & facing hairloss from last 5 mnths previously i was having lots of hairs on my head & from last 1 mnth i noticed that my hairline is reduced by 1 inch some doctors are saying that i m suffering from male pattern baldness & recommended me to use minoxidil 5% solution but i want to regrow my hairline from temple again & minoxide solution is a long term use & can stop hairfall till its used so plzz sugeest me what can i do for this & i m from india

10th February, 2015 at 5:50 pm


Hi Ankur,

There are only two proven treatments shown to regrow hair lost to signs of male pattern baldness, such as a receding hairline. These are minoxidil and finasteride 1mg. The hair on the temples is the slowest to regrow but it can be possible. We are unable to send our products to India at the moment but if your doctors are advising you to use minoxidil 5% you should consider following their advice. It is worth noting that if you would like to try out using the minoxidil they recommend to see if it may work for you, you should start to see results within the first six months as long as you follow the directions, so shorter trials may not be beneficial.

Iam Arjun 16 yrs old. I have a receding hairline. It started at 15. Is there any solution for mine.. Hopefully

13th February, 2015 at 11:22 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hello Arjun,

The male hair loss treatments that would be most effective on reversing a receding hairline are not suitable for men under age 18. The best solution is to wait until you are old enough if you wish to use treatments and, in the meantime, ensure your diet is rich in the nutrients needed for healthy hair.

19th February, 2015 at 1:19 am


I'm a 19 year old black male. I have a receding hairline which has been worrying me as I have such thick hair. I love my hair and I don't want to lose it. As a black man, my hair is a different texture from Caucasians for example. Would the hair treatment effective provided here work on my hair? Also, it is the treatment very expensive to have?

19th February, 2015 at 10:33 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Kel,

Male Hair Loss Treatments are suitable for use on all hair types, and have been seen to produce significant regrowth results in our black clients, as well as other ethnicities. You can find many examples in our Hair Loss Success Stories. If you would like to find out more about regrowing your hairline, give us a call on 020 7730 6666 or send us a message to book a free hair loss consultation where your treatment options and pricing will be discussed with one of our experts. Courses generally start from £600 per year. Alternatively, if you are not based in London, please complete our Online Consultation.

2nd March, 2015 at 1:45 am


Hi, I'm 15 years old, and have a very bad receeding hairline, when I pull my hair back, the cornere( or temples) have went back pretty far, and my crown is very thin with hair (pretty much a bald spot) what options do I have or what can I do?

2nd March, 2015 at 10:49 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Joakim,

As hair loss treatments are only suitable for men aged 18+, for now, you should just try to keep your hair in good condition by washing frequently and ensuring your diet includes the necessary nutrients for healthy hair. You can also avoid foods and habits that promote hair loss. If you feel your diet is lacking, you can take supplements such as Hair Vitalics. Once you are 18 you can consider using the only medically-proven male hair loss treatments, minoxidil and finasteride 1mg, to prevent further shedding and to help regrow your hair.

4th March, 2015 at 1:15 am


Hello, I'm 25 right now, been losing my hair for a couple years now, i used rogain but i didnt see any progress. So I decided to give up for 6 months now. looks like its getting worse, i look really bald up front on my forhead. will this supplement help? does age matter ?

4th March, 2015 at 10:19 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Jimmy,

When you start using pharmaceutical hair loss treatments it will take around 4-6 months to start seeing any results due to the natural length of the hair growth cycle. At first you may just notice stabilisation - where the hair has stopped shedding - but generally you would expect to see some regrowth as well. What Rogaine does is helps inhibit hair loss and promote hair growth, using the active ingredient Minoxidil. Once you stop using the product your hair is on its own again so will most likely start to deteriorate. If you were not seeing the kind of results you would expect, it may be worth investigating alternative high strength minoxidil treatments or a combination course also featuring finasteride 1mg to help block the DHT which causes male hair loss. You can contact our clinic for more information or, as I'm assuming you're in the USA (Rogaine is called Regaine in the UK), please complete our online consultation for details of suitable hair loss treatments to help you restore your hair.

15th April, 2015 at 11:25 pm


Hi I'm 17 years old, and I live in London. 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?

16th April, 2015 at 10:13 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Subar,

We understand your concerns as hair loss can be stressful at any age, but particularly when it is premature. There are treatments for male pattern baldness that can help to regrow a receding hairline, however, these are only available to men over 18 years of age. Until then we recommend speaking openly to your hairdresser about getting a flattering haircut to help conceal your hair loss, and making sure your hair is kept in good condition through your diet. You can find information on foods that can help hair loss and those which can cause shedding on our blog. Most of all, try not to worry about your hair as stress can exacerbate hair loss.

Hi im 23 years old and my hairline is receing it is a huge insecruityfor me and i'm open to any form of treatment or transplant that may stop this so i can feel better about myself and more presentable what is the best form of action for me as i wont be anywhere near london as i am from glasgow David

16th April, 2015 at 2:13 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi David,

Completely understandable - many men feel like this when they notice signs of hair loss. The best thing to do would be to complete our Online Consultation where you can upload photos and give us a bit more background about yourself. From this, our specialists can contact you to provide a professional diagnosis along with personalised recommendations for the hair loss treatments most likely to help you regrow your hairline.

25th April, 2015 at 2:50 pm


I've been suffering from mpb since I was about 16 (2+ years), I've lost about an inch off the corners of my hair line, I'm losing my temple points at the side, and my hair at the very front and at the crown is starting to thin. I'm desperate to stop this and maybe even regrow some hair but I've no idea where to start? I was thinking maybe start taking propecia and at the same time use another treatment to regrow my thinning hair at the temples. I live at least a 5 hour drive away from the belgravia centre so I'm really not sure what to do next? thanks

27th April, 2015 at 9:49 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi David,

The best thing to do if you cannot visit one of our two Central London hair loss clinics is to complete an Online Consultation for our home-use service. You can upload photos and provide information that will help our specialists to determine the cause and stage of your hair loss. They will then be able to recommend the most effective treatments for your specific needs, which - should you choose to go ahead with treatment - can be sent out to you.

6th July, 2015 at 7:45 am


I'm only 16 and my hairline has started receding mainly due to having a few operations and stress is there any creams that I could use?

6th July, 2015 at 12:34 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Anthony,

This may be a case of Telogen Effluvium which is caused by stress and can follow surgery. It is a temporary hair loss condition which lasts up to 12 months and causes the hair to shed more than normal. Your hair should regrow naturally although treatment for Telogen Effluvium may help to speed this up.

Changes to your hairline are natural in your teenage years as, when we grow our faces change and our hairlines adapt accordingly. This sometimes causes the hairline to become less rounded but is known as a 'maturing hairline', not male pattern baldness as there is no miniaturisation of the hair follicles (the process which causes genetic hair loss). There is also a chance that you could be experiencing early signs of Male Pattern Baldness so the best thing to do would be to make an appointment to see a hair loss specialist or complete our Online Consultation to get a professional diagnosis.

The clinically-proven treatment minoxidil can help to treat premature hair loss and is available to over 16s so if you want to seek treatment, there are options available.

21st July, 2015 at 10:45 pm


I am 24years old and I have a receding hairline...how can I treat it because its really disgracing me....i am in nigeria

22nd July, 2015 at 9:43 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Michael,

As we cannot send our products to Nigeria at present we recommend you contact a local hair loss specialist, dermatologist or doctor about hair loss treatments. You could ask them specifically about minoxidil which is often effective in regrowing a receding hairline.

24th July, 2015 at 8:40 am


Hi! Im just a week away from being 18 and i have noticed a thinning hairline for the past few years. It is stressing me out so much because how my hair looks matters a lot to me. I want to just hault the thinning before it gets any worse. I dont want to just shave my head and give up im totally willing to fight for my hair! My grandpa is bald and im sure its male pattern baldness! If i were to start a treatment, would this be something i would need to pay for until the day i die? I live in the US so i couldnt visit one of your clinics...

24th July, 2015 at 8:57 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Josh,

Minoxidil can be effective in restoring a receding hairline and that is available to people who are aged 16 and over. It is a topical treatment that is applied daily - either once or twice, depending on your specific instructions given to you by your hair loss specialist - and on-going use is required. That means that in order for it to regrow and maintain your hairline, you would need to use it daily. We hear that many clients like to keep it with their toothbrush and toothpaste so that it just becomes an extension of their regular routine.

Hi Alex,

The treatment advice above is the most effective for regrowing a receding hairline. One of our specialists will be in touch to explain further and give details of pricing although to give you a rough estimate, our treatment plans generally range from £600-£2,000 per year.

Hi, I'm 22 years old and noticed my hairline receding rapidly. In fact, my hairline is very similar to Duncan's in the above picture. I was wondering roughly what kind of treatment could be provided and how much it could potentially cost ?

Hi Markcus,

I'm afraid we are currently unable to send our products to Uganda. If you are visiting London or have a friend in the UK who can receive and send them on to you, that is the only way we can get our hair loss treatments to you. You would still need to complete an Online Consultation and put your UK contact's details in when it asks for your address, then leave us your address as well in the notes section at the end of the form.

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Lenny,

The information outlined above applies to you as you are over 18 and eligible to use male hair loss treatment. A high strength minoxidil has been seen to produce significant regrowth results in many of our clients with receding hairlines. If you are interested in this, please either make an appointment to come in for a free hair loss consultation at one of our Central London clinics, or if you cannot visit us in London, please complete an Online Consultation.

3rd September, 2015 at 3:45 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Lenny,

As before, you should seek professional advice about appropriate male hair loss treatment and, in tandem, you should also explore ways to manage your stress. There are proven links between stress and hair loss, and it can not only cause shedding in the first place but can also make existing hair loss worse, including male pattern baldness. A hair loss specialist will be able to provide you with personalised information and advice based on your specific situation so do get in touch.

3rd September, 2015 at 3:56 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Shaun,

Firstly you'll need to manage the cause of your stress as this could be making your hair loss worse - or even causing it in the first place. Treatment for male pattern hair loss can help to regrow a receding hairline and, although you have to be at least 18 years old to take finasteride 1mg, minoxidil is available to use from age 16+ and has shown promising regrowth in relation to this type of receding. If you would like to find out more please contact us to book a free consultation or if you can't get to either of our Central London hair loss clinics, please complete our home-use Online Consultation. You may find this hairlossANSWERS information helpful too.

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Kieran,

The information above regarding treatment, as well as the details here should prove helpful in explaining how to treat a receding hairline.

11th September, 2015 at 2:36 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Mathew,

If you have a receding hairline then the clinically-proven treatment minoxidil can help you to regrow and stabilise your hair loss. This type of treatment is suitable for people aged 16+ and it can be used in addition to a range of hair growth boosters to help promote promising regrowth. Price is dependent upon the type of course you opt for from the personalised recommendations our hair loss specialists provide, but to give you a guide, these tend to range from £600 to £2,000 per year. In terms of any operation on your hairline, we do not carry out surgical restoration procedures, however, top surgeons generally recommend men only consider a hair transplant once you are at least 25 years old. You can find a full answer to your query, here.

Hi, If I am 19 and have a receding hairline and I take your product , what would if I were to stop taking it in the future?

14th December, 2015 at 11:29 am


Hi, Max. I have spoken to one of our hair loss specialists who provided the following answer: "

A receding hairline is a classic sign of Male Pattern Baldness which is a progressive condition. This means that the symptoms will not simply go away once it has been treated to the point where regrowth occurs. Treatment needs to be ongoing in order to continue to address this ongoing hair loss condition. If you were to start using a standard course featuring high strength minoxidil, the most popular form of treatment for a receding hairline among Belgravia clients, but stopped once you were happy with the regrowth results you experienced, your hair loss would start again. Your hairline would recede once more and the miniaturisation process caused by male hair loss would continue as before given there is no longer any treatment to help inhibit the DHT which causes this to happen. Some people feel better equipped to deal with hair loss as they age. So, whilst men may use treatments earlier on, later in life they may feel comfortable enough to let nature take its course and decide to stop following their male hair loss treatment course. It is very much a personal decision for each individual."

15th December, 2015 at 4:23 am


Thank you for your response. I have one more question. Can you take the product for a long time period say 10+ years?

16th December, 2015 at 10:47 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hello Max, Yes - you can continue to use the product for as long as you wish.

Hi, I am 17 years old and i have been pulling my hair out ever since i can remember. I am not so bad now but i used to be really bad when i was younger. Now i still do it sometimes but not so much. However, my hairline seems to be receding on both sides... Slowly but i can tell by looking at my past photos and how i style my hair... I am not sure it's because I have been pulling it out so much it has just stopped growing back or it is because I just have a naturally receding hairline. I know in the past and even a little recently I pull my hair or play with it in those spots which probably doesn't help. I just hate it. At 17 it is not what i want. Do you know if its me or if its natural? and any solutions? Thank you!

I'm loosing hair at an alarming rate at the sides of my fringe, I'm 17 going on 18 very soon and my friends and family have noticed this I don't know what's brought this on but can anyone help ?

7th January, 2016 at 11:14 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Alan,

Although it tends to occur more often between your 20s and 30s onwards, male pattern baldness can strike in your late teens too.

What you describe sounds like a receding hairline which is a classic sign of male hair loss. However, it may be something much more simple - a maturing hairline. This is where the hairline changes during puberty and is often mistaken for hairloss.

If you do have MPB, then treatment for a receding hairline in the form of topical applications of high strength minoxidil which is applied directly to the affected areas to stimulate growth, is generally recommended. We would advise you to obtain a professional diagnosis of your condition first though, either in person or if you are unable to visit one of our Central London hair loss clinics in person, then by using our online consultation.

HI Im not really suffering from hair loss. being 20, i think i may have lost very very minimal amounts of hair from the corners of my hairline. like i said, very minimal. i have naturally thick hair, which is good. i honestly just want to maintain my current hair, and do whatever to prevent hair loss as much as I can. I am looking to apply jamaican black castor oil to my scalp 2 times a week take biotin pills daily regenpure dr shampoo twice a week (after sleeping on castor oil and washing in the morning) is there anything else you recommend? is my routine good?

16th May, 2016 at 9:25 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Hamza, hopefully this response from one of our senior hair loss specialists will help explain why your haircare routine is separate to treating or preventing hair loss.

24th May, 2016 at 4:40 pm

Chantal McCulligh

i have to say, these before and after shots are pretty amazing but how expensive is this treatment? You can get the same results simply by using no-sulfates, no parabens or DEA shampoos for hair loss.

24th May, 2016 at 5:31 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Chantal, unfortunately that's not the case. Whilst using hair type-appropriate formulas such as paraben-free shampoos to cleanse the hair may help to improve the condition of the hair, they cannot treat hair loss conditions. There are only two medically proven treatments for hair loss, one of which - minoxidil - is suitable for men and women and the other - finasteride 1mg - is only suitable for men. The consumer advice magazine Which? recently published research into the claims of shampoos claiming to boost thinning hair and how they operate on a cosmetic level and do nothing to treat hair loss which is most often caused by genetics. In terms of pricing it depends entirely on the treatment course a client chooses to follow but the price range tends to be between £600 to £2,000 per year.

25th May, 2016 at 9:09 am


Hey, am 21 and i've had patches in the middle of my scalp for ages. I can handle that, but lately the patches have began to grow and join up. The hair is thinner or non-existent. Furthermore, I've noticed lately that my hairline is beginning to recced way too quickly. The hair at the front is not as thick as it used to be. All of this in like 2 months. It's begging to stress me out. What can I do? How can I get a consultation ?

Hi Arjun, firstly masturbation does not cause hair loss - this is a myth. If you have thinning hair and a receding hairline these are both signs of Male Pattern Baldness. Although we cannot treat you as you are based in India, there are male hair loss treatments available and if you consult with a local specialist they should be able to help you. Very best of luck.

Hi, Im 17 and im not sure if my hair is receding, as my hairline has always been very set back since i was very young, and my grandad's hairline is very similar and he still has a reasonable amount of hair in his 70's. I wasn't bothered about my hairline until i realized my hair is on the sides of my head, it has always been like this, but it is still making me really worried. The hair on the top and back of my head is really thick. Thanks.
