A receding hairline can be the first step toward going bald and It can be difficult to predict how far your hairline will recede. All you’ll see is how it just keeps going backwards.
Hair recession can be caused by genetic predisposition, hormonal influences, and aging.
Hair loss is a sad thing to face, as your hair is a major source of your identity, and losing it can feel like a loss of one’s youth or self-identity.
Fortunately, if you want to try restoring hair growth in affected areas on your head, there are procedures and medications that have been proven effective over the years.
The key factor to avoiding or controlling receding hairline is maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Having a healthy lifestyle will significantly benefit your hairline. It is important to reduce the level of stress in order to manage hair loss. Stress here could be bad behaviors like
- drug use
- alcohol consumption
- high sugar intake
- poor rest
- malnutrition, and so on.
You can even consider adding hair-friendly supplements like vitamin D, B complex, biotin and saw palmetto to your regimen, as they can help fortify hair and help it grow faster and stronger.
Some essential oils also carry potential benefits for hair growth.
Peppermint oil for one has some limited data that it may stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow to the area. Other essential oils you can alternate with are rosemary oil, lavender oil, and tea tree oil as they all have been proven to have limited evidence as natural options to help regrow hair.
More advanced options of caring for your hairline would be PRP and LLLT.
With PRP, a blood sample is extracted from the patient’s arm, and then it is placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the blood as Plasma contains certain proteins and growth factors that may help cellular repair and regrowth of hair follicles, then the plasma is then injected around the head to jumpstart hair follicles and boost hair growth and strength.
LLLT on the other hand is an emerging method to treat hair loss, as it may stimulate cellular regrowth and improve blood circulation.
These technologies are often quite expensive, So, it’s most Important to speak with your doctor about effective treatments that work for you.
