My Hair Looks Thin Under Direct Light, But I’ve Seen No Recession

Bathroom lightsI have one of those panels right above my bathroom mirror with lightbulbs, and whenever I look at my hair in the mirror, the front looks like it’s thinning as I can see scalp. But my hairline is the same as it’s been since I was 15 (10 years ago) — no recession whatsoever that I can tell. And my hair does not seem to look like it’s thinning in the temples but rather in the general frontal area from temple across the middle and to the other temple. Furthermore, when I come out of the shower I comb my hair back, and then I take a handheld mirror, and bend over so I can see the top of my head in the mirror, the front of my hair looks like it’s thinner than the middle or back from the top view. From this description only, what would you make of this?

When your hair is wet, you might have more see through hair. Also, as you age, some people get finer hair. Under direct light, your hair may appear thinner. It doesn’t sound like you have any hair loss, and I really can’t suggest anything for you to try.

  1. Actually, I have the exact same problem. No one ever mentions my hair looking thin but when my hair is wet and i look in the mirror the front of my head looks thinner than everywhere else. Also when i just wake up or gel my hair up (at the front) it looks thinner. What do you think? No one else seems to notice.

  2. Hi, im 25 and Ive noticed the exact same thing with my hair the last few months. It doesnt look as full as before on the top (esp when wet or gelled) Does anyone know if this is a normal thing to occur or is it an early sign of hair loss???

  3. hi i’m 17 and my hair is lookin thin, and noticing on the front scalp a bald spot forming. I was curious about getting hair treatment. Where would be the best place where i can get my real natural to grow back? how much? And do you believe in massaging scalp daily will grow hair back?

  4. I just recently noticed the same thing and went to the dermatologist who mentioned it could be mild miniaturization. He pushed propecia like crack, but I don’t see a reason as I feel I’ve always had this.

    I see this posted a while ago. Have you guys have any updates on differences on your hair?

    Has it stayed the same?

    Input would be appreciated since this is exactly what’s happening to me.
