A receding hairline is a prevalent condition among men as well as women. However, it is more common in men and can be one of the first signs of male pattern baldness. There are several factors that can lead to a receding hairline, from family history to age, to hormonal changes and other illnesses. In women, it is more common to experience thinning of hair than a receding hairline, but it is not impossible.

However, thanks to advances in medical studies and technology, there are several treatment options available to restore a receding hairline, depending on the cause. There are some distinct signs and symptoms associated with a receding hairline, which are more likely to develop post-puberty or during adulthood.

What are the signs of hairline recession?

Following are some signs to watch out for a receding hairline:

1. Uneven hairline

While it is normal for the hairline to mature in a natural way, a receding hairline is different. When your hairline is maturing, the entire hairline pulls back evenly. In the case of a receding hairline, you will notice that the hairline pulls back unevenly. Most men may notice an M-shaped hairline, receding from the temples, from the sides, from the middle of the forehead, or at the back of the head.

2. Thinning of hair above the temples

This pattern is common in men, with the middle area of the hair receding from the temples. In women, thinning can also begin at the temples and gradually spread across the top of the head. However, it is more common for women to experience thinning of hair, uniformly across the scalp.

3. More hair fall than usual

It is normal for people to shed between 50-100 hair strands every day. If you notice more hair fall than that, it might be a subtle symptom of hair thinning or a receding hairline.
