The Perfect Solution To A Receding Hairline
Take a good look at your surroundings (especially if you’re at a family gathering) and you’ll soon notice many of your male relatives suffering from the dreaded receding hairline phenomenon. The androgenetic alopecia, a condition that’s correlated with age, affects over 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States alone. Men who suffer from this experience hair loss and a receding hairline from the front of the scalp, whilst women observe a general thinning of hair all over their heads instead. Either way, hair loss is never easy and can take a toll on one’s physical confidence and self-esteem.
However, if you’re starting to feel apprehensive, don’t fret –– we’re here to provide you with ten clinically proven regrowth and care tips. There’s nothing that good advice, consistency, and the determination to push through, can’t fix!
Delve Into The Root Of The Problem
Before diving in to tackle hair loss, it’s crucial to sit down with a dermatologist and uncover the underlying reason for hair loss. There are a plethora of causes for a hairline recession –– such as androgenetic alopecia (genetic thinning) and traction alopecia (caused by tight hairstyles), to name a few –– hence conducting a history and examination will help you to zero into the root problem.
Whilst a person loses around 80 strands of hair daily, new moms can shed up to 400 hairs a day! Postpartum hair loss is another common (and normal!) problem that women face, up to six to nine months after childbirth. We recommend taking prenatal vitamins during this period to keep your hair strong and slow down the rate of hair loss.
Hair Extensions May Be Weighing You Down
The first thing to do is to remove any existing hair extensions that may be glued or taped into your hair, especially ones that are situated at the front of the head. This is an extremely delicate area, and the extra weight could result in permanent hair loss and damage if not removed properly!
If you still can’t get enough of the luscious look of hair extensions, we suggest placing your hair extensions at the back and crown of your head. However, do remember that rest is key –– it’s important you take them out every night and between applications. Alternatively, we recommend experimenting with clip-in styles instead of opting for heavy hair extensions.
Shake Out Your Ponytail
Might not have hair extensions but still experiencing hair loss? If you’re sporting a super-tight high ponytail, that might be why! Whilst this Ariana Grande-inspired hairstyle is all the rage, it’s guilty of placing extreme scalp stress and breakage, which leads to traction hair loss. How about loosening up the ponytail, or opting for a simpler, scalp-friendly hairstyle, such as a messy braid? It is also helpful to invest in good shampoos and conditioners that stimulate hair growth; for instance Salameh’s Hair Rejuvenation Shampoo and Conditioner are good choices.
Go For Regular Scalp Massages
This do-it-yourself option is perfect for those on a tight budget, or who do not have enough time to seek out professional dermatologists! Engaging in regular scalp massages twice daily can promote hair regrowth, and help to reduce hair thinning. According to professional dermatologists, scalp massages are effective as it nurtures the root of hair growth –– the follicles itself. By stretching out the cells within the hair follicles, it dilutes the blood vessels beneath the skin which stimulates thicker hair growth.
When conducting a scalp massage, use your finger pads to rotate in gentle, circular motions whilst applying light to medium pressure. Work your way around the scalp, starting from your crown to your hairline. Do this for at least five minutes at a time, several times a day! The scalp is delicate, so avoid using your fingernails or pressing down with too much strength, as this may cause abrasions and stunt hair growth. After a relaxing scalp massage, nourish your hair and scalp further with a Mediheal Hair Sheep Team Pack.

Experiment with Hair Growth Oils And Products
Adding healthy hair growth products such as Olaplex No.7 Bonding Oil and Salameh’s Hair Rejuvenation Serum can greatly boost the process of hair regrowth. Plus, did you know that many natural hair oils can be found in your local supermarket? We recommend creating your concoction by mixing a few drops of tea tree oil and any carrier oil, such as jojoba, almond, or coconut. Incorporate this mixture into your regular scalp massages, and remember to rinse thoroughly! You’ll soon see much softer, thicker, and nourished hair.
Alternatively, you might want to try purchasing hair regrowth vitamins, which can help regulate and maintain hormones. However, this often acts as a filler to strengthen the hair follicles, which help hair become stronger and grow faster. If you’re looking for immediate hair thickening results, we suggest consulting a doctor or dermatologist for the appropriate hair regrowth vitamins.

Take Note Of Your Diet
You are what you eat, literally. That’s why we stress the importance of having a healthy diet full of fresh vegetables, fruits, grains, lean meat, and drinking lots and lots of water. Additionally, ensuring that you have all the essential multivitamins can play a major role in curbing hair loss. For example, iron deficiency is one of the major causes of hair loss for women, especially amongst vegetarians or those experiencing heavy menstruation.
Undergo PRP Treatments
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy is a medical treatment whereby a person’s blood is drawn and processed to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected or micro-needled into the scalp, where the boost of blood supply strengthens hair follicles and increases the thickness of the hair shaft. Though this treatment is on the pricier side, its effects are known to be immediate and significant.
Try Out Hair Transplant Surgery
If nothing works in promoting hair regrowth, you might want to consider cosmetic hair restoration surgery. Hair transplants work by surgically removing hair follicles from the ‘donor site’, an existing area of the body, and grafting it to the ‘recipient site’, the targeted bald or balding part. Whilst hair transplants are used primarily for male pattern baldness, it is also commonly used to fill in areas where hair is thin or missing, such as in scar tissues.
Women who are experiencing hair thinning around the hairlines can opt for hair transplants, where ‘donor’ hair follicles can be taken from the other healthy areas of the scalp that do not have hair loss. However, women who have a general hair thinning around the scalp may not be suitable candidates for hair transplant, as they do not have an appropriate donor supply of hair.
Though this option is also on the pricier side, it is widely considered the most effective hair restoration technique.
Hair regrowth will not manifest in visible results overnight –– unfortunately, it’s a journey. Before embarking on your hair regrowth quest, It’s important to remember that only long-term patience and care will help nurture your hair back to health. We’re here for you! Follow our tips, and you’ll be glad you did.
