I have always had a high forehead, but I’ve had two comments in the last month saying I’m growing bald. My hairline has always definitely been higher by my temples, but I’m now unsure if it’s getting worse. When I lift my hair to show my hairline though, I don’t see any thinning. Shouldn’t this be a gradual process where I could actually see the hair receding or doesn’t it work that way? Also, my dad and all of his brothers are completely bald, but they all showed signs by the time they were 20. No one on my mom’s side is bald. Would that mean if I was balding, it would be in the same pattern as my dad and his family? I’m almost 26, should I be balding at the same age as then and same rate?
You need to determine if you are developing a maturing hairline. You should also get your hair mapped out for miniaturization to determine if you are really balding. Recession is different that maturing a hairline and you need to understand the difference. If you do not show miniaturization, the it would be safe to assume that you are not now presently balding.
