The best hairstyles that make your receding hairline look good

Unfortunately. hair loss is something that most men go through by the time they reach middle age. There isn't a cure for any type of hair loss, but there are treatments that can help reduce the rate of shedding, and support the growth of hair. 

Hair loss in men usually occurs in one of two patterns. Some men experience diffuse thinning at the top of the scalp, particularly at the crown region, which spreads and eventually leads to baldness. But most men tend to start receding at the hairline, which causes a widows peak. 

For many men, the receding can be a slow process. Some men start receding early in life, but manage to hold onto their hair for a long period of time. Some men prefer to hide or cover their receding hairline, and others prefer to work their hairstyle around it. 

Here, we look at some great hairstyles that enhance the receding hairline, based on your face shape, hair type, and overall look... 

The brushed back look

receding hairline hairstyles for men

If you've got quite a chiselled looking face, or a longer shaped face, then brushing your hair back, showing off the hairline, could actually work well.  Hollywood star, Henry Cavill (above) pulls off this hairstyle well. 

Sometimes, by showing off your recession, it makes you look confident, and perfectly secure in yourself. It also looks pretty damn cool, if you've got the face for it. 

The fringe

If you're not keen on the brushed back look, then you can always do the opposite by brushing your hair forward. This can be a trendy look, which helps cover the receding hairline, and lower the size of your forehead. 

If you're going for this look, then be sure to keep the sides very short. This gives the illusion that your hair at the top is thicker. David Beckham (above) pulled off this look in style. 

The cropped look

If you're not so bothered about hiding your hairline, or styling your hair around it, then you can always crop your hair very short, which, in itself, can take away the fact that your hairline is receding. 

By clippering your hair short on the sides, and leaving it a little longer up top, it will give the illusion that you've got more hair than you actually have. It also looks tidy, masculine, and on trend. 

The comb over

If your hair has still got some pretty decent density, then the comb over hairstyle might just be for you. By brushing your hair to one side, it can help cover the receding hairline, and make the hair look fuller and more textured.

Enrique Iglesias (above) has been styling his hair like this for many years, in an attempt to cover his receding hairline. And to be fair to him, it looks pretty good. 

The Jude Law look

Jude Law hairline

Jude Law (above) has the most iconic receding hairline in Hollywood, and one of the great things about it is that he never tries to hide it. Jude has always styled his hair in the most natural way, with his hairline on show, for all to see. 

If you are confident and secure enough to try it, then simply let your hairstyle look as natural as it can be. Rough it up a tad, and show the world that you're more than confident in yourself and in your receding hairline - that's an attractive trait in itself. 

How to stop a receding hairline?

There's no cure for hair loss, but there are treatments on the market that can help slow down and stop the excessive shedding, and support the function of healthy hair growth. 

The most common treatments are finasteride, minoxidil, HR23+, keratinocyte growth factor, and ketoconazole. Micro needling, PRP, low light laser therapy, and hair transplantation procedures are also growing in popularity.  Results vary from person to person.

Is Meghan Markle Losing Her Hair?

Meghan Markle hair loss

The Case of Meghan Markle's thinning hair


Since marrying Prince Harry, Hollywood actress, Meghan Markle, has become a well known name in the United Kingdom, and some would argue for the wrong reasons.

Despite her loathing for the press, the Duchess of Sussex has constantly been in the headlines of late, which means we've go to see a whole lot more of her than ever before. 

During her time in the spotlight, many people have noticed a slight case of thinning hair, in and around the top of her scalp. This has led many fans to ask what is causing Meghan's hair to fall out. 

In this post, we'll go through the likely reasons why Meghan's hair is clearly thinning, and explain what is causing the bald patches on her scalp. 

What is the cause of Meghan Markle's hair loss?


The most likely hair loss type is traction alopecia. Traction alopecia is caused by repeatedly pulling on the hair. This condition can develop through wearing buns, ponytails, and even from manual pulling on the hair - usually influenced by stress. 

Fortunately, traction alopecia can be reversed, but the issue needs to be addressed as soon as possible, because it is something that can become permanent.

By looking at Meghan's hair, it appears that traction alopecia is the main cause of the patchiness on her scalp. The pattern of the bald patches, and the area of thinning, both demonstrate clear signs of traction alopecia. Meghan also tends to tie her hair back into buns and ponytails, which further enhances the theory than her hair loss is the result of traction alopecia.

This condition is also common in African-American women (Markle is mixed race), although it can affect people of any ethnicity.  Although the condition can affect people of any age, it’s more likely to happen as you get older because your hair becomes more damaged the longer you pull on it. Meghan is in her 40s, which is a common age for traction alopecia to occur. 

There are some other possible causes of Meghan's hair loss, such as androgenic alopecia (female pattern baldness), postpartum hair loss, and even seasonal shedding. 

Many women experience hair loss in their 40s, therefore Meghan's thinning could be a mixture of the mentioned factors. We will know more about the cause of Meghan's hair loss condition in the coming years.

If it worsens, then it could be down to female pattern baldness, but if her hair grows in, then it's more likely to be a case of a temporary hair loss type such as traction alopecia, or postpartum hair loss. 


How to prevent Traction Alopecia? 


To prevent traction alopecia from progressing, it would be wise to avoid tying the hair back. If you have to pull it up into a ponytail or bun, keep it loose and low on your head.

Traction alopecia can also be caused by wearing wigs and hair extensions, therefore it would be a good idea to lessen the usage of these types of hair systems, and to also lower the heat on devices such as hairdryers and hair straighteners. 

If you are stressed, and constantly pulling on your strands, then obviously you will need to find a way to avoid pulling on your hair. Stress can be hugely damaging to the hair, so lowering your stress levels through meditation, healthy eating, exercise, and yoga, can be hugely beneficial to your locks.

Best Treatment for traction alopecia 


To treat traction alopecia, first consider seeing a dermatologist or a trichologist. The doctor will examine your scalp. He or she might take a sample of tissue called a biopsy to look for other possible causes of hair loss.

As already mentioned, the main treatment for traction alopecia is to avoid wearing your hair in a tight style, especially overnight. Also, avoid wearing braids and platting your hair. 

Your doctor might prescribe one of these treatments for traction alopecia:
  • Steroids to bring down swelling on your scalp
  • Antifungal shampoos (ketoconazole) 
  • Minoxidil (Regaine/Rogaine) to regrow hair
  • Hair supplements (HR23+) to strengthen your hair

Conclusion


Traction alopecia is reversible, but it needs to be treated as quickly as possible - the earlier you treat it, the more hair you'll keep. If you stop wearing your hair in the tight hairstyle that caused it, your hair will grow back normally. But if you continue styling your hair the same way, the hair loss can be permanent.

If you suffer from any type of hair loss, then seek treatments. There is no cure for hair loss, but there are some treatments (medical and non-medical) that can help reduce hair fall, and promote the function of healthy hair growth.

Prince William's Hair Loss: Through The Years of William's Hair

Prince William hair loss

Why did Prince William lose his hair so quickly?


Since a young age, Prince William has suffered with androgenic alopecia, or more commonly known as male pattern baldness. Around 65 percent of men experience some stage of male pattern baldness by the age of 40, and the condition worsens with age. 

Many people, particularly men, seem intent on wanting to know why the future king lost his hair so quickly, and well before the age of 40. So, let's take a look through the years of William's hair, and the progression of his hair loss...



Prince William young with hair

A young Prince William, sporting long, luscious blonde locks, didn't show any clear signs of hair loss. Early signs of baldness is usually easy to spot, but in his case, it looked as if he'd enjoy lots of thick hair throughout his 20s.



Prince William thinning hair

As William went into his twenties, the early signs of thinning hair was evident. There was already less density in his hair, and his hairline was creeping up his forehead. The progression of hair loss from William's late teens to his early 20s was an indication that he would likely lose most of his hair by the age of 30.

Prince William beard

By the age of 30, William had lost a huge amount of his hair, with diffuse thinning, and clear hairline recession. A bald patch at the crown region was now visible, and the rate and speed of the thinning continued to worsen. Still, the beard looked pretty good. 



William hairline

As William went into his 30s, around 90 percent of his hair fell victim to male pattern baldness. William was experiencing aggressive thinning, and the rate of hair fall was rapidly increasing. It was now only a matter of time until he'd lose the lot.



Prince William now

Fast forward a few years, and the Prince of Wales has lost all of his locks.  Within a 20 year period, William went from bushy haired, to bald. His thinning started in his early 20s, and then became progressively aggressive as he got older.


Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence in many men, and although there is no cure for hair loss, there are some treatments on the market than can help reduce hair fall and support the function of healthy hair growth.  The key is to tackle hair loss as soon as possible, because the sooner you act, the more hair you will keep.

Best Treatments for Hair Loss in Menopause

What Sort of Treatments Should I Use To Combat Hair Loss in Menopause?


Question from Janet Cummings.

I started experiencing severe hair fall during menopause, and despite seeing a trichologist, and spending around vast amounts of money every month on treatments (vitamins and shampoos, mainly), the issue doesn't appear to have gone away.

What sort of treatments should I be using, and how much money should I be spending, in order to stop excessive hair shedding? 

Answer:

Firstly, assess your hair thinning and try to establish what stage of hair loss you are at. There are some treatments that can work well on early stages of thinning, but you may require more advanced treatments for more severe cases of hair loss.

As far as your current treatments go, spending vast amounts of money on vitamins and shampoos seems excessive. It appears that your trichologist is wanting to make money, first and foremost.

Most professionals in this sector would refer you to more advanced procedures, for that sort of money. £500, for example, could get you a PRP session, an LLLT session, or a deposit for a hair transplant. Shampoos and basic supplements like the ones you are using, just won't deliver the sort of results that you are looking for. Certainly not long term, anyway.

If it's just a multi vitamin supplement that you are taking, then it lacks key extracts like saw palmetto, pumpkin seed, nettle leaf, and ginkgo, that you hair would need in order to combat hair loss. The market leader, HR23+ supplement, contains all of these key extracts, which work in conjunction with its vitamins to deliver far superior results. So, if you want to take a hair supplement, then be sure it contains potent extracts as well as vitamins. 

Just a word of advice: Please avoid using minoxidil (Regaine), if it's something you've thought about trying. This medication can cause severe shedding, which is something that you should be looking to avoid. It's ok for early stages of androgenic alopecia in younger patients, but we've had so many of our readers in their 50s and 60s, telling us of their horrifying experiences with using minoxidil. 

Have you tried the Biotin & Collagen Shampoo by OGX? That, along with their Argan Oil Shampoo, is very popular with a lot of our readers. These shampoos do not treat hair loss, but they lather well, and add fullness to the hair. They also contain high protein additives which is always a benefit for the hair.

You may also want to think about trying ketoconazole shampoo (Nizoral), if you haven't done so already. Using it once a week can help with hair loss. It won't work miracles, but it's a good shampoo to use in conjunction with other treatments like HR23+.

Is Harry Styles Going Bald?

Is Harry Styles going bald

Is Harry Styles losing his hair? Through the years of Harry's hair...


There aren't many famous faces whose hair gets talked about quite as much as former One Direction singer, Harry Styles. 

Even from a young age, Harry's hair has constantly been at the centre point of discussion and debate - for good and bad reasons. 

There has been ripe speculation that pop sensation, Styles, is actually bald, and has resorted to wearing a wig, in recent years, but it's unlikely that these rumours are true, because it is evident, just by looking at it, that Harry's hair is indeed his own.

Styles himself has admitted that he does suffer from thinning hair, but how much of this is true? Let's take a look at Harry's hair through the years, and try to establish if he is indeed experiencing some from of hair loss. 


harry styles hair young

We first laid eyes on Harry back in 2010 when he appeared in the British singing contest, The X Factor. The baby faced boy from Redditch came onto our screens sporting a floppy fringe, brushed sideways. 

It's far too early to know if Harry was on his way to experiencing hair loss, despite not being able to see his hairline, which was covered by his hair. 


Harry Styles long hair

Fast forward a few years, and Styles grew his hair into a long, pushed back style. This meant we could see his hairline for the first time, and it showed a clear widows peak, even at such a young age. 

This, of course, could just have been his natural hairline, so it was unclear whether Harry was going through early stages of male pattern baldness, at this point. 


Harry Styles fashion

As Harry made his way into his 20s, he cut his hair shorter, but continued to push his locks back, which means we've always been able to keep an eye on his hairline. 

Even just a couple of years after his longer haired look, we can see that Harry's hairline has receded further. The widows peak has become more pronounced, with recession at the temples. At this point, you would diagnose Styles with early stages of male pattern baldness. 


Harry Styles hair now

Fast forward to today, and Harry's hairline has receded even more. In the space of about ten years, his hairline went from a shallow 'm' shape, into a sharp 'v' shape. 

If Harry does not use treatments for his hair loss, then the hairline recession will become more aggressive as he makes his way into his 30s. He should expect diffuse thinning at the crown, too, which means, by the age of 40, Harry will most likely have lost the vast majority of his hair. 


Can hair loss be prevented? 


There is no cure for hair loss, but there are treatments and surgical  procedures on the market that can help reduce excessive hair fall, and support the function of healthy hair growth. 

With money being no obstacle, Styles would be able to get the very best treatment for his hair loss, should he wish to do so. But, maybe he's perfectly content with his thinning hair. He never tries to hide his hair loss, which is a very confident and attractive trait, in itself.

Does Justin Bieber Use Hair Loss Treatments?

Justin Bieber hair loss treatments

Is balding Justin Bieber using hair loss treatments? 


It could be argued that Justin Bieber has been the biggest popstar of the past decade, and even beyond, such is his success and popularity. The Canadian pop sensation has had more hits than most of us have had hot dinners, but, as his hairline has shown in recent years, even Bieber himself isn't completely invincible.

Despite his success, and much of it has been down to his image, we've already established that Bieber has been losing his hair for a number of years, now. Male pattern baldness has been the culprit, and unless treated, it will only get worse. 

Justin Bieber is fast approaching 30,  and if he wants to hold onto his hair, he'll have no choice but to use hair loss treatments. There's isn't a cure for hair loss, but there are certain treatments and procedures that can help reduce the excessive shedding, and promote the function of healthy hair growth.

So, with endless amounts of money as his disposal, Bieber is already in a good place to tackle hair loss. Of the treatments available, here are the best options that he should consider, going forward... 


Hair Loss Medications


Finasteride and minoxidil are the two medically approved hair loss treatments. Finasteride is a treatment pill for make baldness, available through doctor's prescription, and minoxidil is a topical medication that you can now buy over the counter. 

Both drugs can be effective for reducing hair loss, but neither will perform miracles. It is likely that Bieber is using one, if not both products, to minimise his hair loss. The problem with treatments like finasteride and minoxidil is that once you start using them, you'll need to continue doing so, forever. 

Also, they can come with negative side-effects, many of which are permanent, so there are risks involved. These treatments are ok for the short term use, but more potent treatments would be needed for longer term results. 


Hair Transplant


It doesn't look as though Bieber had any hair transplantation surgery just yet, but, like many celebrities, you would think it is only a matter of time before the "Baby" singer gets a hair transplant. 

Hair transplants are pretty expensive, costing thousands of pounds for just one procedure. However, they can be effective for restoring the hair, depending on the individual. Hair transplants do not offer any guarantees, but they are definitely worth a try if money is no issue to you. 

Justin Bieber hair loss treatments

Most hair clinics advise men to wait until their 30s to get a transplant, as the effects tend to be better for the longer term. You would think that Bieber will, at some stage in the next few years, get a hair transplant, and it will probably be one of the best that money can buy! 


Multivitamin Extract Hair Supplement 


For many people, medications are too much of a compromise on their health, and hair transplants are just far too expensive, so the safer (and effective) option to take is hair supplements. 

Specially formulated hair supplements contain key vitamins and potent extracts that can help reduce the formation of hair loss, and support the function of healthy hair growth in both men and women. These types of products are non-medical, which means they're safe to use, with no risks of side-effects. 

There are a bunch of hair supplements on the market, with HR23+ being the market leader. If he wanted to avoid medications, then it is very likely that Bieber has used hair supplements, and will continue to use them even after he has a hair transplant. 


Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)


Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a relatively new treatment that more and more people are trying in an attempt to combat baldness and thinning hair.  PRP is a treatment whereby bloody is extracted from one part of the body, and then injected into the scalp, in order to stimulate blood flow, thus activating the hair follicles. This procedure is done over three sessions. 

This procedure has not been FDA approved, and it is still in its early stages. There is not enough evidence or case studies to know exactly how effective (or not) this treatment is for hair loss. However, it is becoming popular, particularly with women. 

PRP is expensive (expect to pay around £1000 per session), but that isn't an issue for someone of Bieber's wealth. If Bieber has heard of the treatment, then it's likely that he's given it a try. He's got the cash, so he would have nothing to lose by trying PRP.

6 New Year's Resolutions to Stop Hair Loss

Six new year's tips to stop hair loss and promote hair growth 


Getting on top of hair loss doesn't have to be a worry or a chore - in fact, it can be quite easy, as long as you integrate a some key hair care products and habits into your weekly routine. 

The trick is to know what's causing your hair to fall out, and then to treat it accordingly. It is true that results from treatment to treatment tend to vary from person to person, but from a general standpoint, there are certain products you can try, and things you can do that can help counter baldness and thinning hair.

So, in this post, we'll go through some handy tips that you may want to try in order to combat the effects of thinning hair.  Here are six things that you can do in the year ahead, to get on top of hair loss, and promote healthy hair growth... 


Eat more protein


You may not be getting enough protein each day, and that can affect the growth of your hair. Protein is one of the key factors that boosts hair growth. People on high protein diets have been shown to have better hair growth than people who are not getting enough protein into their system.

If you aren't keen on a whole lot of high protein foods (maybe you do not eat meat), then there are plenty of things you can still do to get protein into your diet. Protein powders and shakes are a good way of getting that extra hit of protein into your system, and benefit your strands. 


Take more vitamins


Much like with protein, some people do not get enough vitamins, extracts and minerals in their daily diet (some even have a deficiency), which can be bad for the hair. Hair growth is largely dependent on the vitamins and minerals that you put into your system, so be sure to get all the essentials one in. 

Biotin (Vitamin B7), folic acid, saw palmetto, pumpkin seed, nettle leaf, and ginkgo biloba, are all excellent vitamins and extracts that can help counter hair thinning, and support hair growth.



Rather than buying and consuming all the vitamins separately, consider investing in a carefully considered multivitamin extract hair supplement like HR23+.  9 out of 10 male and female users noticed visible improvements in their hair within three months of using HR23+. 


Consider hair loss medication


If your hair loss has got more aggressive, and you are now going through more advanced stages and thinning, then you'll want to consider some medically approved treatments. 

The most well known one is minoxidil (branded as Regaine/Rogaine), but there are some others that can also help treat hair loss. Do not expect miracles from these types of treatments, and prepare yourself for some potential negative side effects.  We would advise that you speak to a doctor before using any type of medication. 


Try low-level laser light therapy


Studies have shown that low-level laser therapy (LLLT) stimulated hair growth in both men and women. Studies with largest randomised controlled trials demonstrated statistically significant hair regrowth by terminal hair count in both males and females.

LLLT can be done in clinics or from the comfort of your own home. Again, don't expect miracles, but this treatment can be effective in patients who are experiencing early stages of hair loss. 


Try micro needling 


Micro needling involves the use of a derma roller with small needles that causes minor skin injuries. While used as an anti-ageing skin treatment, micro needling may also be a method of treatment for thinning hair. There's even evidence that it can help alopecia areata.

Micro needling has been shown to be an effective way to stump hair loss and stimulate follicle activity. This practice can be particularly effective in conjunction with other hair loss treatments, like minoxidil, ketoconazole shampoo, KGF Serum, and HR23+.


Be healthy!


Your hair is no different to any other part of your body - the better you look after yourself, the more it will thrive. Being healthy doesn't cure hair loss, but living an unhealthy diet can cause the hair to shed excessively, and be prone to damage. 

Eat well, get plenty of exercise, stress less, and live as happy as you can be. The more content and happy you are with life, the better your hair will grow.
