What is a healthy hairline? It’s normal for men to have their hair form a U-shape. A woman’s hairline is considered normal if it’s 2 to 2.4 inches or 5 to 6 cm above the eyebrow. For men, it’s normal to have 2.4 to 3.2 inches or 6 to 8 cm above the eyebrow. Widow’s peaks are not uncommon for women and sometimes are seen in men.
How do you know if your hairline is healthy? Receding hairlines, which take on an M-shape, are normal and can happen to any hairline. If you don’t like the look of your hairline, whether it’s receding or not, talk to your doctor about possible medications or get creative with styling to make the hairline less noticeable.
How do I improve my hairline? Regularly performed scalp massage may help you grow thicker, healthier hair, research from 2016 suggests. Increased blood circulation at the site of your hairline could be why scalp massage works to stimulate hair follicles. Try massaging your scalp manually for at least 4 minutes each day.
Can you rebuild hairline? Yes. In many cases, receding hairline is indeed reversible. The right treatment for you depends on the cause. “For androgenic alopecia, minoxidil (Rogaine) is the only FDA-approved medical treatment for both men and women,” Krejci says.
