What is a Receding Hairline and Why Do You Have It?

 Your hairline does not recede all at the same time. It’s a gradual process that happens over time.

A receding hairline simply means your hair follicles start to thin out, and gradually stop growing causing your hairline to decline further away from your face. Most women often notice gaps showing in their frontal scalp, a considerable loss of their frontal hair, and overall thinning of the hair.


The hairline makes a gradual progressive movement backwards from the forehead, sides and back heading to the crown. Most people tend to believe that receding airlines comes with old age but even though this is true in most cases with both men and women, anyone in their early 20s to 40s can experience it.

Causes of Receding Hairlines

Now that you know a little more about it, here are a few reasons why you have it.

● Genetics:

If you’ve started to notice your hairline leaning backwards faster than you believe it should, maybe you should take a look at the family album one more time. Chances are you’d see who you got your brown eyes from as well as your receding hairline. Like most other things, hair loss can be hereditary. You can get it from either one of your parents or both.

● Traction Alopecia:

Remember what we said about the too-tight, too-high ponytails? Well, it’s one of the most likely causes of a receding hairline.

Traction Alopecia is a condition where you lose hair due to the consistent tension and pulling on the hair follicles causing it to weaken and then pull out. It’s caused by tight hairstyles such as braids, ponytails or buns, or overuse of hair extensions.

 Most of the time, the easiest thing to do is pull your hair into a tight bun at the top of your head. If it’s not a matter of necessity then it could be a matter of style because high ponytails are a stunner for sure. The only problem is, that consistent action can lead to some serious damage to your hairline.  

● Stress:

It’s no secret that stress can cause a lot of harm to the body and a receding hairline is just one of those things. Stress-induced hair loss can be triggered by a large number of events.

For example, situations like undergoing major surgery, living through a pandemic, or even heartbreak can do the trick.

● Trichotillomania

This is a disorder in which a person pulls out their own hair when they’re nervous or stressed. This could lead to bald spots around the hairline which would have more difficulty growing back quickly as it should or even growing at all.

● Pregnancy

Numerous changes happen to a woman’s body during and after pregnancy. Hair loss leading to a receding hairline is rather normal. Since pregnancy boosts the production of estrogen which causes the scalp to retain hair, it follows that after childbirth the excess hair would fall out.

● Poor Hair Hygiene

Not taking proper care of your hair can lead to massive hair loss which could in turn cause a receding hairline. When dirt accumulates on the scalp it can easily clog the pores and leave the hair follicles malnourished. The follicles will in turn fall out and with the pores still blocked, new hair follicles will not be able to grow right back.

How to Stop A Receding Hairline

We know how frustrating and saddening a receding hairline can be so before you go to your hairstylist to take it all off, here are a couple of things you should do that may get your hairline back in shape.  

  • See a Dermatologist

A receding hairline is caused by a good number of reasons and only a professional can tell you what exactly is the determining factor in your case. Hair loss is not entirely curable but you can get a better, easier solution to work with than the clippers. There are a good number of treatments such as hair transplants, laser therapy, platelet-rich plasma and so on. Also, regular check-ins with your dermatologist can lead to early detection and that could save you a lot of stress.

  • Avoid Tight Hairstyles

Go for hairstyles that go easy on the roots of your hair. Avoid excessive use of heat and hair extensions. Switch out the rubber bands for scrunchies, claw packers and headbands. They are a lot easier on the hair roots and fun to style.

  • Have a Good Hair Routine

Schedule regular hair appointments to prioritize good hair hygiene. Regular washing and treating of the hair with the right shampoos, conditioners and serums will help to facilitate healthy hair growth. Try scalp massages using scalp brushes or scalp exfoliators and appropriate hair shampoo. This can give the hair a boost and stimulate growth in the hairline.
