The day that most men dread is when they start to notice the hairline give way. It’s a common cultural trope that this signifies the (often less than graceful) descent into middle age.
While it may not be initially traumatic, the reality of any hair thinning is a lot more complicated. Often, this can be one of the first signs of male and female pattern hair loss, and should be taken seriously.
Left unchecked, it can lead to permanent hair loss and lasting changes to your confidence and sense of self. Taking control of your hair earlier can help you avoid both of these.
What Causes A Receding Hairline?
A receding hairline often begins when you reach your 30s or 40s, but can happen at any time. It’s caused by a combination of genetic and hormonal factors, and hits about half of men by the time they reach their 50s.
Many of the genetic codes for hair loss are inherited on the mother’s side of the family, but research has shown that having a balding father can be a good indication of a man’s future. Growing older will simply increase the probability of these genes kicking in.
As we age, hair follicles at the front of the head begin to respond differently to the androgenic – male sex hormones – men and women produce naturally. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a by-product of the breakdown of testosterone in the body binds to the follicles and causes them to shrink.
For women, this is also related to more complicated changes in hormones like oestrogen and progesterone.
This manifests in a range of hair conditions, but often begins innocuously enough as a receding hairline.
Should I Do Something About It?
Hair thinning is often just the beginning of hair loss. We know that hair is important as a sign of youth, attractiveness and even confidence. A gradual loss of hair can take a toll on your personal wellbeing, if not properly attended to.
Losing hair can result in:
- Sadness and depressive thoughts
- A preoccupation with hair
- Shame and embarrassment
- Reluctance to be seen socialising
- A loss of self-esteem and confidence, especially with regards to personal and professional relationships
