Ways of stopping a receding hair line?

Is there a way to stop it? I know I could get a hair transplant but I want to know if there's anything that can slow or stop a receding hairline caused by male pattern baldness

Hair loss in men is usually a genetic trait. There is no way of "stopping" a receding hair line. It is genetics.

Some available options for you + how to determine your candidacy for a hair transplant


Some non-surgical options are the use of medication like Rogaine and Propecia. Laser therapy and PRP can slow down the rate of hair loss and even improve your existing hair. The sooner you start treatment the better. Just keep in mind that any non-surgical treatment has to be continued for life in order to keep working.
You should get a consultation with a hair specialist to find the best possible treatment for you.

I am adding a informative video clip about candidacy for hair transplants.
Best of lucks!

Stopping a receding hair line

I will assume that you are a male with early balding and recession. IF this is the case, then the drug finasteride is the best drug to address recession and early balding especially in young men
