Hair thinning affects women of various ages, and there are different reasons which cause your hair to be thin. A receding hairline is one classic symptom of thinning hair. Sometimes it’s a hereditary trait, running in the family. Other times, it could be a result of the way you style your hair. It is possible to reverse a receding hairline and regrow your hair. There are quick fixes and some permanent solutions to treating this problem. Read more to learn about the simple steps you can take today to restore your hairline.
Use Concealing Powder
One of the quickest methods to hide a receding hairline or expanding part is to use concealing powders. Hairstylists use this same tactic and have done so for many years. This tactic is very successful at faking the appearance of fuller hair and works very well with a widening part. Using touch-up powder to fill the thinning area will make it look fuller and thicker immediately. Most concealing powders are similar to the root sprays used to cover up grey hairs. Powders are available in different colours so, whatever your hair colour, you are covered.
Try A New Part
The next crazy-easy method you can use today to hide shedding or a receding hairline is experimenting with a different part. It’s revolutionary, isn’t it? Something as fundamental as the way you brush your hair can be the answer to putting the brakes on your hair thinning problem. Adopt a middle part, especially if you want to conceal the area just above the forehead. The bonus is that a centre part will frame your face beautifully, which will take your mind off the receding hairline.
Take It Easy On Updos And Styling
Traction alopecia sits alongside genetics and ageing as one of the top causes of a receding hairline. Experts warn that wearing your hair pulled back tightly, or frequent styling, may result in thinning around the area. Easing up on the styling and taking care when blow-drying and brushing your hair will ease the follicles’ pressure. A ponytail is one of the most notorious hairdos when it comes to pulling your hair and eventually causing traction alopecia. Ditch your ponytail holder and choose a looser hairstyle instead.
Androgenetic alopecia causes the majority of cases of receding hairlines in women. Medical options are available for encouraging new hair growth. A comprehensive treatment plan will use a combination of medicines which can be applied topically. Always make sure you check with your doctor before you start taking any new medication to treat thinning hair or a receding hairline. Some of the proven treatments include:
- Minoxidil – a topical solution or foam that promotes new hair growth. This product has a proven success rate but will need a continuous application for it to keep working. If you stop taking the medicine, hair thinning will start again.
- Platelet Rich-Plasma (PRP) Treatment -PRP is a hair loss treatment involving the stimulation of hair growth by injecting the patient’s blood plasma. The process involves separating the blood into its different components, which are plasma and red blood cells. Spun blood plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which have high levels of growth factors. Doctors inject the concentrated plasma directly into the scalp in the thinning areas. The growth factors provide nourishment to hair follicles, revitalising them so that they start producing healthy hair again. You can use PRP treatment with other hair loss solutions, such as hair transplant, or as a standalone procedure. This treatment is also suitable if you are experiencing post-pregnancy hair loss and want to accelerate the regrowth rate.
Are You Looking For A Permanent Answer?
A hair transplant is a permanent solution; it takes hair follicles that are genetically programmed to grow for the rest of your life from the donor area at the back and sides of the head. This hair is then placed into the thin and balding areas of the scalp. A well-executed hair transplant will produce a natural-looking hairline. Advanced techniques now mean there is little downtime, and patients recover very quickly from the procedures.
