I’am not losing any hair.
I see. You should see a cosmetic dermatologist. There are skin laser treatments which can remove hair on your forehead.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Is this a condition or something to do with genetics or hormones? My mother has a tiny hairline also, but as a baby my hairline was large but as I’ve aged it’s gone lower.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I’ve been thinking about getting electrolysis done in the next few years.
That could help kill hair follicles. Skin laser treatments could help. let me know if you have other questions. If done for now please leave positive feedback below. You can always reach me as Dr David. Thank you for using JustAnswer.com

This is not genetic condition but unwanted hair in certain areas of the body can be quiet distressing, especially when the hair grows on forehead. Excess testosterone is probable cause in both men and women.

Thank you Dr.Vasavada for this information, just one question, do you know if these home remedies are permanent or just a temporary way to remove the hair on the forehead?

You are welcome. Most permanent will be electrolysis. Even if temporary, can be repeated often as needed.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Soon to come I will have electrolysis.

Good luck. Please give positive star rating. Thanks.
