Does a high hairline mean balding?

If you’ve noticed your hairline is starting to recede, you might be worried that you’re balding or have male pattern baldness. And while your assumption could be correct, a high hairline can mean something else entirely. Your hairline starting to move back can actually be a sign of a mature hairline, not balding.

Can hair grow back from balding?

Male pattern baldness shows up in a telltale shape: a receding hairline with thinning strands around the crown of your head. Over time, that area will go bald, but you’ll still have a horseshoe pattern of hair above your ears circling to the lower back of the head. Hair will not grow back.

Can you have a high hairline and not go bald?

Yes. You can certainly have a receding hairline and not go bald. There are even several simple lifestyle changes which are recommended as a treatment for a receding hairline as we’ve seen above. Male pattern baldness, though, is generally an inherited condition which you can’t really reverse.

At what age do you notice balding?
