As you grow older, it’s normal for your hairline to recede. This affects more men than women and is sometimes called “male pattern baldness.” If you want to slow or reverse the thinning of your hairline, you have several options you can pursue. From natural remedies to hairline tattoos, here are some of the most common ways you can restore your hairline.
Most natural remedies work best when used as preventive treatment, so it’s best to get started on them early for optimal results.
1. Biotin vitamins

2. Quit Smoking
Quitting bad habits like smoking may help prevent additional hair loss. The toxins contained in cigarettes have been shown to damage hair follicles, impeding their growth.
3. Eat Healthier
If you’re looking for a positive habit to promote, eating healthier may lead to positive long-term effects on your hair growth. The more well-balanced your diet, the more minerals and vitamins can benefit your hair and overall health. Make sure you are receiving the recommended dosages of vitamins, fruits, and vegetables in your daily diet. Don’t go overboard with the supplements, but provide your hair with all the tools it needs to thrive.
If repeated use of natural remedies fails to slow your hair loss, consider a form of clinical treatment:
Over-the-counter medications can provide standing solutions to hair loss. Pills like Minoxidil and Finasteride have been shown to reduce symptoms over time. These medications are optimized for men; women may experience unwanted side effects due to changes in testosterone levels and other bodily chemicals. Always be sure to consult a doctor or pharmacist before taking a medication. – You can reference Hims, Keeps and the articles we’ve written about them. You can also mention ED as a side effect.
5. Laser Treatment
While this method does not work for everyone, laser treatment has been used for some hair loss patients. The treatment works by using low levels of laser therapy to stimulate scalp circulation, thereby encouraging hair growth. There are pros and cons to every treatment option. While laser treatment can be expensive, time-consuming without guaranteed results.
If you’ve run out of options, you may be considering hair transplant surgery, also called FUE/FUT transplant. With long-lasting results, the science behind the hair transplant operation has grown in recent years. The surgery works by removing hair follicles from one part of your scalp and grafting them onto a sparser area. The front of the hairline and crown are usually receding the most, so the follicles will typically be grafted there for most noticeable results. However, surgery can be an expensive option for some patients. Also, hair transplants do not work for everyone. You need a strong donor area to pull from and if you continue to lose hair, you’ll need more surgeries which leave scaring.
For a quick cover-up, here is a list of some go to options that claim to help hide hair loss:
7. Hair Pieces or Systems: A hair system is a hair accessory that can be worn over your head and made to match your hair color. You can find toupees made of natural hair. The hair system will need to be replaced and cut monthly.
8. Light therapy devices: These appliances are laser caps worn on the head in an effort to stimulate hair growth. While at-home light therapy devices aren’t nearly as helpful as professional light therapy treatments, for some they may provide positive benefits.
9. Hair Fibers: change to reference hair fibers like toppik and caboki
While cosmetic treatments are used as a bandaid to cover the problem, other hair loss options like scalp micropigmentation are effective and permanent.
10. Hairline Tattoo
For men, there is another option to combat a receding hairline. Your hair loss may be because of genetics, underlying health conditions, or another reason. With scalp micropigmentation, pigment is deposited into the top layer of the skin creating the appearance of tiny hair stubble or very short hair.
The end result is an easy-to-maintain buzzcut style. Hair follicle color and tattoo shape can easily be altered depending on your preferences and head shape. This customizable procedure can also cover up scars from previous surgeries and provide you with self-confidence in your hair and scalp. It is a safe process that doesn’t penetrate the skin as deep as a traditional tattoo, meaning the healing process doesn’t take you out of the game.
