Do Indian heads undergo maturing? My father started going bald at the age of 35 and my grandfather at 40. However my mother’s side is devoid of any kind of MPB. My question is my temples have undergone receding corresponding to the MATURE hairline that I read in this website. Is this normal for an Indian male like me? Also there is no further thinning, as far as I know and my hairline has remained the same for the past 1-1.5 years. Can I safely call it a maturing hairline and put all my mental worries and tension aside? This is killing me and I hope you read this and help me and my case.
Almost all men have some form of maturing hair line as they transition into adulthood. About 5% of Caucasian men maintain part of all of the child;s hairline well into maturity (former presidents Reagan and Clintoon). Maturing hair lines are not considered balding. Balding in the form of androgenic alopecia (AGA) also called Male Pattern Balding (BMP) is genetic and is inherited from your mother or father (close to 50/50); however, it does not always follow a predictable pattern and you may have the balding pattern where your immediate family members do not. There is no specific cure to reverse genetic male pattern balding or maturing of a hair line and even the drug Propecia (finasteride) which works so well on genetic balding does not stop the maturing hairline from appearing.
