Receding Hairline But Not Thinning Hair
Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

24 female & my hair has been thinning out in the front & I think receding hairline. What to use/do that will increase growth & thickness? Dormant hair?
Genetic cause?: The medical problems that need to be excluded are an under active thyroid gland or autoimmune disease. Blood tests will help diagnose.

What kind of products (shampoo, pills, etc) w/o a prescription can u use if u think u might have a receding hairline & loss of hair everywhere?
No: Life's difficult enough without this kind of foolish stuff. All men lose the hair on their temples at about age 20. Whether it progresses is genetic and closely related to how much chest hair you're naturally blessed with. We remember the First Americans wearing their hair long but baldness was and is rare among them. ...Read more

Managing it can wait. Get super-fit and it won't matter where you have / don't have hair. ...Read more
