Mature Receding Hairline vs. Male Pattern Baldness

Men, when you were in your late teens and early 20s, did you notice a receding hairline? You may have panicked wondering if you had male pattern baldness. In fact, receding hair at this age usually is just a maturing hairline and it is a natural part of the aging process that occurs in most men. Boys’ hairlines usually line up with their highest forehead wrinkle. A mature hairline is about ½-inch to ¾-inch higher above this point in the center. The hairlines of men with male pattern baldness recede past this point. Most men’s hair matures over time but the length of time and rate of the recession varies by individual. Some men experience a maturing hairline over the course of five years and for others it may take decades for their hairlines to mature.

This pattern of male pattern baldness is due to the fact that the condition is caused by a genetic predisposition to a sensitivity to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). For these men, DHT is toxic to hair follicles along the temples and the crown of the head, preventing these follicles from absorbing nutrients and leading to the shortening of the Anagen (growing) phase of the hair growth cycle.

If you’ve begun to see the telltale thinning at the temples that signals male pattern baldness, take steps to help prevent any further recession of the hairline by taking hair growth supplements for men. Scientifically formulated, clinically researched hair vitamins for men nourish thinning hair follicles with the nutrients needed to help promote hair growth.
