If you have an emo haircut, chances are you straighten it and do other really damaging things to your hair. You'll wanna cut that stuff out if you want to keep your hair.

I know, I know. It sucks. I used to straighten my hair too, but I had to stop. It was either have pretty hair at 19 and no hair at 20 or find an alternative. An alternative would be to use a cool blow dryer and style it with that.

You'll also want to look at the products you're putting in your hair. There are a lot of things that do more harm than good.

And finally there's your treatment of your hair. If you are really rough with your hair, abrasively drying it with a towel when you get out of the shower, pulling at it, tying it back in a tight ponytail, et cetera... the tension is going to cause your hair to fall out.

Your hairline is not always affected by genetics - that is to say, the rate at which it recedes, how deeply it recedes and when, will admittedly be largely dictated by male pattern baldness, but that's not what it comes down to.

Are you losing hair elsewhere? To echo Aunty, general hair loss can be caused by heat and styling damage - so if you regularly blow dry, straighten, comb or back comb your hair, chances are you're damaging it and encouraging it to fall out. If styling your hair is imperative and you feel you can't stop doing the aforementioned things to it, invest in some products that will at least help protect your hair: for example Dove do 'heat therapy' shampoo and conditioner, Shockwaves and Charles Worthington sell a protective mousse, etc.

Would you be able to tell me how old you are? Most forms of balding are gradual and increase with age, so whilst your hair may be thinning and your hairline receding, chances are it won't be particularly obvious for some time to come. And by that time ... who knows? You might be willing to sample a different hairstyle. There are plenty of cuts and colours that can help disguise a receding hairline, and having a decent hairdresser can make all the difference. It's worth having one to educate you on hair loss!

Lastly, try not to stress about it as that alone can cause hair loss. A receding hairline won't ultimately result in all of your hair falling out and you losing your style; gradually, your hair will grow from further back on your head. A lot of men cope simply by growing the hair at the front of their head longer, so that you can barely discern the receding hairline at all.

Shave your head number 1 all over and always keep it really short if you don't like your hair line.
