I recently saw a lot of posts here about the asymmetrical hairline or hairline receding, however, I am wondering as many people part their hair in one side for a long time, is it possible to cause asymmetrical hairline receding due to the parting? If people do not change their parting place regularly, I guess it may result in the hair loss in parting point so that the hairline looks uneven for both side, or can we call it a similar form of traction alopecia?
Parting your hair on one side does not cause hair loss or asymmetric hair line. In general hair does look thinner on the side of the part because there is no overlap of hairs and you can see through to the scalp easier. Parting the hair does not cause traction alopecia but some doctors feel that exposure to the sun on the parted side, especially when the parted side is on the driver’s side of the car, may promote balding from UV/sun damage.
