Where’s your hairline?
Hair loss for men in their 20s is far more common than you may realise. In most cases this is down to genetics and a hereditary connection. Rarely is the hair loss so bad that it leads to complete baldness at such a young age and in most cases you will notice it far more than other people.
However, it can affect confidence and affect the way you live your life. The good news is there are receding hairline solutions available for men in their 20s and beyond. Read on to see which one offers the best solution.
What Causes a Receding Hairline in your 20’s?
There are several possible causes of early onset hair loss in men. One of the most common causes is male pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, which is a genetic condition that is characterised by a receding hairline and thinning on the top of the head. Other possible causes of early onset hair loss in men include hormonal imbalances, certain medications, high levels of stress, and certain medical conditions such as alopecia areata, thyroid disorders, and iron-deficiency anaemia. In some cases, the cause of early onset hair loss may be a combination of factors.
1. Using a Hair System
A hair system is another term for a wig, toupee or hair piece. Traditionally they have got a very bad reputation for looking too obvious when worn. They consist of a thin membrane that contains real hair and usually need replacing every few months.
Over the years hair systems have got a lot better and look far more realistic. However, the big concern is always that someone will notice the difference. Or worse still, dealing with the bonding tape/glue losing its adhesiveness and the hair system sliding to one side or falling off completely. It’s a stress that doesn’t make for an easy going lifestyle.
2. Scalp Micropigmentation
In terms of realism, longevity and cost effectiveness, there is no better treatment for a receding hairline available. Scalp micropigmentation recreates a full hair line in detail, making you look and feel great. Skilled practitioners place pigment-like dots across the scalp matching the colour of your existing hair.
It is also an extremely easy treatment to maintain and lasts for years. There are no chemicals involved so the skin isn’t exposed to any harmful toxins. As a non-invasive treatment there is no risk of infection as only minimal incisions are made in the skin. SMP hides hair imperfections and looks realistic enough so most people will never notice the difference.
Here are some more examples of natural hairlines created with scalp micropigmentation.
3. Hair Transplant
More often than not, a hair transplant will produce poor results. When you consider how much the treatment costs and the long recovery period, it doesn’t make sense to put yourself through it. We’ve had many customers tell us that their new hair fell out after only a few months. This means they have wasted their money and are back to square one again.
Hair transplants also give you back far less hair density. This is because fewer hairs are used to cover an area that once contained far more. Over time the hairs will also thin and age, so in another 10 years they will become limp and unmanageable.
People want quick results in today’s world and the idea of popping a pill to solve their hair loss can be enticing. There are a lot of promises made by some drugs that never come true. On the other hand there are those that do help slow down hair loss, but these only work while you are taking them. This means they are not a long term solution. Two of the medicated receding hairline solutions include Minoxidil and finasteride which can be prescribed by a doctor to treat hair loss. Minoxidil is a topical solution that is applied to the scalp, while finasteride is a pill that is taken orally.
Another big problem is dealing with the side effects. Some people are lucky and don’t experience any at all. But most men do and this makes taking the drug far more hard work and problematic in the long run.
5. Homeopathic Treatments
There are a few homeopathic remedies that may be used to help with a receding hairline, but it’s important to note that the effectiveness of these remedies may vary from person to person without much concrete evidence to support its effectiveness.
Some of the commonly used remedies for hair loss include Silicea, which is often used for hair that is thinning and falling out, as well as for scalp problems such as itching and dandruff, Lycopodium which is used for hair loss that is caused by hormonal imbalances or changes in the body, Kali carbonicum which is often used for hair loss that is caused by stress or anxiety, Phosphorus which is used for hair loss that is accompanied by itching or burning of the scalp and Natrum muriaticum which is used for hair loss that is caused by a sensitive scalp or by exposure to harsh chemicals.
6. Healthy Diet
A healthy diet that is rich in vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamin D, iron, and zinc, can help reduce the effects of an early-onset receding hairline. Eating a balanced diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains can also promote hair growth and overall health. This solution is best used in conjunction with a regular exercise pattern and other hair loss treatments.
