‘What is a Maturing Hairline? Is it a Sign of Male Pattern Baldness?’

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

Name: Luc

Question: Hi. I’m 19 and have started to notice changes in my hairline. My dad said it’s just my hairline ‘maturing’ – what does that mean? Does it mean I’m losing my hair? My dad is balding so I’m worried this is happening to me too.

Answer: Hi Luc. A maturing hairline is different to Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) and is not necessarily a sign that you are losing your hair.

As we grow, our hairlines – like the rest of our bodies – change. Generally the most obvious natural changes to people’s hairlines occur during their teenage years, where ‘immature’ hairlines with rounded edges can become slightly higher and less clearly defined. This is what’s known as a ‘maturing hairline’ and it can happen to anyone, not just those who have a genetic predisposition to hereditary hair loss.

Those who are affected by MPB will tend to start displaying signs of hair loss – such as a receding hairline or a thinning crown – any time from their 20’s onwards. Premature balding may also occur in teenagers although not until after puberty. Whilst a maturing hairline is more or less still straight, a receding hairline shows a distinct V-shape, or a triangle at both corners.

Although a maturing hairline is nothing to worry about, if your dad is losing his hair and you are concerned about your hair following suit, there are preventative steps that you can take. Visit a hair loss specialist for a free assessment of your hairline; if necessary, they will also be able to provide you with expert information regarding which male hair loss treatments could help you to take a proactive approach to warding off baldness.
