Receding hairline vs grey hair

One of the first things people notice about you is your hair. This forms part of their first impression of you. A thick, full head of hair with a great hairstyle can confidence, health and success.

Receding or grey hair can affect anyone with most men starting to see this from their late 20’s to early 30’s. With over 50% of men having noticeable hair loss by the age of 40 and over 70% of men aged 45+ experiencing some grey hair.

But, which condition has the biggest impact on a person’s perceived age? The answer as it often is, is that it depends. The impact on perceived age for those with receding vs grey hair will vary from person to person and is influenced by other factors such as virility, skin condition and style for example. Grey hair can give a distinguished look, but it can also add years to your appearance.

Hair solutions

If you’re not ready to embrace the “silver fox” look, then colouring or dying your hair is a quick solution. When your hair is receding, in the early stages, the right hairstyle will hide many of the receding areas to an extent. The problem many men have when trying to hide their receding hairline by combing hair over is when they swim, sweat, or it is a windy day it is uncontrollable.

Once your hair recedes further and bald spots start to show, keeping long hair in place becomes a challenge that no amount of careful hair placement will fix. There are temporary solutions such as wearing a hat or shaving your head. For a permanent solution, there’s a Gro microsurgery hair transplant which for a receding hairline is a quick one-day procedure designed to move the healthy hairs from the back and side of your head to the front.

Three Gro microsurgery patients who will never need to worry about their receding hairlines again are Andy, William and Ben who all recorded their hair transplant results and recovery in the days, weeks and months after their hair transplant.
