A few options: To stop a receding hairline nonsurgically the most common option is propecia, (finasteride) hair and skin vitamins will also help. Also make sure any dandruff is under control surgery is also a great option but ca be expensive. This however is permanent.

Minoxidil: Otc Minoxidil 2% is often used in addition to propecia (finasteride). Get the generic 5mg & a pill cutter to cut it into 4 pieces.
