A receding hairline is usually more common in men than women, however, it is a menace suffered by all. There are certain things that you do that lead to receding hairline. Regardless, if your hair is diminishing, we share simple ways to help stop this and regrow:
This largely applies to women. There are a hundred styles of wigs to choose from and wear so as to give your hair a break from the constant handling and styling. This can give your hairline time to naturally regrow.
Reduce the use of chemicals on hair
Excessive amounts of shampooing, drying and over-processing of your hair can weaken your hair causing thinning and some temporary hair loss. Also, the buildup of these products alongside dandruff on your scalp can clog hair follicles making it more difficult for the hair to grow.
Ensure you consume foods high in substances like protein, minerals, carbohydrates and ‘good’ fats. Foods high in protein typically aid hair growth and help maintain a healthy hair. You should also supplement your diet with vitamins essential for regeneration and overall well-being like Vitamin B, E, Iron etc. However, you should avoid excessive consumption of these vitamins. For example, too much of Vitamin A and E have been linked to shedding of hair.
Use anti-fungal/dandruff shampoos
Dandruff or anti-fungal shampoos kill yeast that causes dandruff in the hair which helps prevent flaky dandruff. This helps to reduce the amount of yeast on the scalp which may help reduce hair loss.
Be selective about your hairstyles
For men, haircuts like the Caesar haircut are best to help a receding hairline. Also, you can get a buzz cut or shave your head bald to conceal the hairline and give it time to regrow. But this requires regular maintenance to ensure the hair does not regrow in a way that makes the receding hairline more visible.
Try Natural Shampoos
Natural shampoos are great for helping to regrow your hair from hair loss because they typically don’t contain harsh ingredients that can damage the hair and cause hair loss.
Avoid too much styling
Excessive styling tends to cause front hair loss and thus a receding hairline. Hairstyles like braids, ponytails or cornrows, especially when done too tightly, can damage the hair shaft and follicles. In addition, extreme amounts of combing and rubbing of hair, particularly forceful combing and vigorous rubbing of hair, can cause a receding hairline. You should avoid excessive styling, combing or rubbing of your hair to save a receding hairline.
