For women, the first noticeable sign of hair loss is often a widening part or less fullness to their ponytail. Men may notice a bald spot on the top of their head or a receding hairline.
Signs of hair loss show up in many ways. You may notice a:
- Gradual thinning of the hair on your head
- Bald spot that grows slowly
- Receding hairline that becomes more visible with each passing year
- Widening part
- Thinner ponytail
Hair loss tends to appear gradually. These signs can be subtle, so you may have hair loss for months or years before you notice it.
