Am I bald?

Some define baldness as the appearance of a broad forehead, and some define it as the inability to hold a lock of your own hair. How can we correctly evaluate baldness? Here are three common ways to help you assess the situation. When the following conditions are present, you are likely experiencing balding problems.
  1. Measure your forehead: is it more than 7 cm (or 3 – 4 fingers in width)?
The most common type of baldness seen in Taiwan is a receding hairline. It is also the most common type of male baldness. The hairline will gradually recede to the top of the head. This does not refer to those who may be born with large foreheads. In general, you are not bald if the distance between the hairline and the top of the eyebrows is less than 7cm, or less than four fingers worth of space.
  1. Examine your hair density: is your scalp visible when you are drying your hair?
In addition to a receding hairline, hair that becomes increasingly sparse may also be a sign of baldness. To assess this, you can examine your head when it is dry and not greasy, starting from the top. If the scalp is clearly visible in some areas, and the hair is unable to cover the scalp, particularly in the crown area, it is likely that you are experiencing baldness.
  1. Record hair loss: are you consistently losing more than 200 hairs daily for more than a month?
Regardless of age or gender, hair will fall out every day when it is in the telogen phase. Once it has fallen out, the follicle will remain healthy and hair can grow back once it re-enters the anagen phase. Telogen phase hair loss is when someone loses about 100 hairs in a day. If more than this is lost, such as 200 a day continuously for a month, further examination at a clinic is recommended to address this issue as quickly as possible.
