You’ll probably know the main signs of balding already. From a receding hairline to a balding crown, the key signs are familiar to us all. However, overall, expect your hair to be thinner, weaker, and more brittle. And you may see that it grows more slowly on top – or that more hair falls out in the shower or when styling. Crucially, sudden onset hair loss or inflamed/sore scalp that causes bald spots or patchy hair loss is not MPB.
