I am a 30 years old man, I have found that my left widow peak is thinner than my right one, is it normal? Have you ever seen guys with uneven/imbalanced widow peaks of both side?
Second, does thinning on widow peak indicate that the loss of temple hair?
The widow’s peak may disappear as one ages. I wrote a paper on this and published it in a medical journal. The area we call a widow’s peak is centrally located and usually its ‘lower point’ touches the highest wrinkle of the furrowed brow. It is never present in very young children, but appears as the frontal hairline migrates upward as early as 5 years old. It is common in women. One doctor reported that 83% of women over 40, have a windows peak.
The temple peaks seem to have its own genetic pattern that is independent of the classic Norwood balding patterns that impact the frontal area and the top and crown of the head. I have looked at advanced balding patients who retain their temple peak even as all of the hair in the front, top and crown of the head is lost. I do not know if drugs like finasteride can stop the loss of temple or widow’s peaks but I doubt it because the loss of these hairs are often the result of a hair’s limited life. We use the term Apoptosis to signify that a cell is going to die and these hairs may die according to a time-clock we don;t understand. Ronald Reagan lost his temple peaks even though he maintained a full head of hair until he died.
No one’s hair is perfectly symmetric, especially when a person is in the process of losing hair from genetic balding. One side’s hair loss might be ahead of the other side, but it will eventually catch up over time.Widows Peak is not related to temple hair loss.
