So, you woke up one day and noticed that your hairline is receding, and the hair around one side of your temples is thinning and started to panic. Does it mean you’re going bald? Probably not.

A receding hairline is normal as you age, and a very common concern among men and women, alike. Here are some reasons as to why your hairline may be experiencing an uneven hairline.

Is It My Mom’s Fault?

A common misconception is that the gene for baldness comes from the mother’s side. However, research has proven that the gene for baldness can be inherited from both sides—so stop blaming your poor mom, and start blaming both parents! Genetics are the leading cause of uneven hairlines or alopecia, so look around you. If someone in your family has a receded hairline, chances are so will you.

Other environmental factors such as being around polluted areas or cigarette smoke can also lead to premature hair loss.

Traction Alopecia

Traction Alopecia is just a fancy medical term for hair loss caused by over styling. Wearing your hair back in tight hairstyles such as ponytails and buns, or pulling at your hair overtime causes tension in your scalp, leading to hair fall. It happens gradually, to both men and women, and the best solution is to leave your hair alone or wearer looser styles.

Male/Female Pattern Baldness

Also known as androgenic alopecia, this is a natural condition that can lead to hair loss and eventually baldness.MPD is genetic and is caused by high levels of DHT in the body, with androgen receptors in abundance around the temples. It’s marked by a receding ‘M’ receding line and thinning of the hair around the crown due to the shrinking of follicles.

Female-pattern baldness involves the thinning of hair around the hairline, which makes it look uneven and patchy. Just like MPD, it’s a result of hormonal imbalances and typically starts causing bald patches around the crown area.
