What is frontal hairline?

Frontal hairline is the outline of the growth of the hair on the head, especially in the front or the forehead region. Receding hairline or frontal baldness means loss of hair in the frontal region. The frontal region, also called the “forelock” or “central forelock,” is the section of your hair that’s front and center. It includes the hairline and the hair around your temples.

What causes a receding frontal hairline?

Frontal baldness or a receding frontal hairline can occur in men and women both, though it is more common in men. The onset of frontal baldness can start any time after the end of puberty or during adulthood. Frontal baldness above the temples and the frontal hairline moves back across the top of the head. There is often a ring of hair left around the top of a bare scalp where thin hair continues to grow.

A receding hairline or frontal baldness can begin above the temples, but usually in women, hair in the middle may stay closer to the forehead. This V-shaped hair growth in front is often called a “widow’s peak”.

The sides and back of the head can ultimately become bare, though many men are usually left with some thin hair. 

Causes of a receding frontal hairline:

  1. Age – Receding hairline is a natural process that occurs with age. The hair follicles on the head get damaged with age and no longer grow new hair. Eventually frontal baldness occurs.
  2. Hormonal changes – Hormonal changes occur in men and women both, but more in women. Stages like puberty, menopause and pregnancy cause hormonal changes and can lead to frontal baldness. In men, DHT hormone causes the hair follicles to shrink to the extent that they no longer grow new hair, causing the hairline to recede.
  3. Family history – Those with a family history of frontal baldness, especially men, are more likely to have a receding hairline. The age or timing of hair loss is often similar from one generation to the next.
  4. Medications or treatments – Some medical procedures or treatments, for example chemotherapy, cause hair loss or frontal baldness.
  5. Illness or stresses – Acute illness or any stress (physical or mental) can cause hair loss known as telogen effluvium. There is sudden shedding of hair leading to frontal baldness.
  6. Lifestyle choices – People who smoke tend to develop frontal baldness faster than those who don’t smoke. Individuals who follow a healthy diet have better hair than those who do not.

  • Does your hairstyle have an effect on your frontal hairline?

Yes, hairstyles that apply constant pressure and pull the hair back from the frontal hair line are known to cause a receding frontal hairline with time. When your hair is tied back tightly, hair strands can break at the roots causing a receding frontal hairline. When tying your hair in a bun or ponytail, keep it as loose as possible to minimize the stress and pressure which causes the frontal hairline to recede.

  • Does long hair cause the frontal hairline to expand?

Having long hair does not necessarily expand the frontal hairline. Frontal hairline receding is prevented by avoiding tight hairstyles that pull the hair backwards. Also, to have a better hairline, a healthy nutritious diet is important and avoiding chemical and heat damage to the hair.
