The problem

A receding hairline can start as soon as your late teens—in fact two out of three guys will experience some form of hair loss by the time they’re 35. Many men first notice hair loss above their temples. From there, the hairline may continue to recede and expose the scalp, creating an angular hairline that resembles an M or V shape.

The cause

Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most common cause of a receding hairline. Genetics are the biggest factor in how susceptible you are to hair loss. So, if your dad or uncle had a receding hairline, there’s a good chance you’ll experience similar hair loss and thinning hair as well.

The solution

Luckily, there is an FDA-approved prescription pill that is clinically proven to prevent the spread of receding hairlines. Finasteride works by blocking the production of DHT, the hormone responsible for male pattern baldness. If you’re experiencing overall hair thinning, your doctor may also recommend that you take minoxidil, which is clinically proven to improve hair growth.
