According to the American Hair Loss Association, two-thirds of men will begin to see a change in their hairline by age 35. Hair loss is commonly associated with men, but were you aware that women can also experience receding hairlines?
What is a Receding Hairline?
For women, a receding hairline could be the first sign of frontal fibrosing alopecia or traction alopecia. The process usually starts above the temples, and the hairline continues to move back across the top of the head.
Frontal fibrosing alopecia is characterized by scarring and hair loss on the scalp near the forehead. In many cases, the eyebrows and eyelashes are also affected. The cause of this particular alopecia is unknown, but it is thought to an autoimmune deficiency.
Traction alopecia is a form of gradual hair loss that is caused by frequent styling. It commonly results from wearing hair in tight ponytails and braids. This form of alopecia is most evident at the temples and forehead, where hair is being constantly pulled.
