I am a 32 year old male. Within just the past couple years I have notices my hairline receding more rapidly. I for a while I have been using dandruff shampoo all the time. Is this ok for my hair, or should I only use dandruff shampoo when I have noticable signs of dandruff. Could this be a cause of my faster receding hairline? Thank you.
Commerically available dandruff shampoo (stuff you find in stores) does not cause hair loss — otherwise the manufacturers would go out of business. You are probably receding regardless of any hair product. You may benefit from visiting a physician who can evaluate your head using a densitometer for your current hair loss pattern. Hopefully the doctor can map out your hair for miniaturization and tell you what is happening to you.
