Hairlines changing to mature hairlines are still hairloss caused by DHT right? Would propecia help slow or stop the hairline moving back to a mature hairline? I see some people with no recession at all. I want to be one of those people. If propecia doesnt stop a mature hairline, then what besides DHT causes this hairloss?
When baby seals (harp seals) are born, they have a beautiful white insulative coat. As they mature, they lose this coat. It’s in their genes. Likewise, for Caucasians, a maturing hairline in present in 95% of men nd it is in their genes (in part due to DHT). Thus theoretically, a DHT inhibitor like Propecia may halt the maturing hair line. You should note, however, I used the term ‘in part’ which means that there are other factors that may be responsible for the change, not just DHT.
There are few points to consider:
- Male pattern baldness is not a maturing hair line. Otherwise it would be called a maturing bald line.
- Propecia’s effect is best seen to work on the crown of the head and not the corners or the frontal hairline.
