As you age, it’s normal for your hairline to move slightly higher above your forehead. There’s not much that can stop this hairline recession from happening once it’s started.
A receding hairline is most often linked to ageing and hereditary but there are other factors that contribute to such a hair loss and they include; over-styling hair especially with heat, choosing tight hairstyles like cornrows and braiding, using chemicals such as bleach and peroxide to colour hair, eating a diet that’s high in saturated fat, processed foods, preservatives, and sugar as well as smoking cigarettes.
There can be a change for the better, you just need to take the first step and continue with any of the following receding hairline treatment. Keep scrolling, to find out more.
There’s no guaranteed treatment that will stop a receding hairline. But there are health strategies and treatments you may want to consider to keep your hair as full as you can for as long as possible.
Eating a healthy diet:
Eat a diet high in antioxidants and that can fight oxidative stress, which ages your hair. These could be Blueberries, spinach, kidney beans, and walnuts.
Take Vitamins a little more serious:
The following vitamins and minerals which can be found in leafy vegetables, nuts, and seeds and may improve the way your hair looks and feels:
• Vitamin A
• Vitamin B-12
• Vitamin E
Topically applied herbal preparations like Chinese hibiscus, ginseng, Gotu Kala, Gooseberry, and Aloe Vera may support healthier, fuller hair if you have a receding hairline. These roots have been proven by some to serve as a remedy for hair loss treatments. You can mix several herbs together to create a conditioning treatment to leave on your scalp.
This looks like the last solution for those who can afford the luxury of time and resources. A hair transplant is a procedure in which a doctor moves hair from the back of your head to the front of your head, at your hairline thus giving your hairline a fuller appearance.
Since there are risks and complications from a hair transplant, it is strongly advised that you speak with your doctor to find out if you’re a good candidate for a hair transplant.
Switch to a gentle shampoo:
Some shampoos are specifically designed to be gentle on your hair and stimulating on the hair follicles, some contain chemicals that strip sebum (oil) from your scalp and leave follicles weaker. So, before you buy one check with a hair expert or study the ingredients.
Some essential oils may promote hair growth like Rosemary oil, Peppermint oil, and lavender oil. These oils have all been found to be promising treatments for a receding hairline.
A regularly performed scalp massage may help you grow thicker, healthier hair as it increases blood circulation at the site of your hairline and stimulates hair follicles. Try massaging your scalp with your hands for at least four minutes each day.
Stay free of stress and anxiety:
Stress has been linked to some kinds of hair loss. If you can observe that you feel stressed and anxious, work on living stress-free as it comes with a baggage of illnesses. Research has shown that you can lower your stress levels through frequent exercise, time outside, relaxation techniques, and meditation.
If you are not comfortable with your hairline, you don’t have to continue to feel bad. Take this as an opportunity to change the narrative. It’s your hair. Flaunt it anyway!
