Baldness almost always starts at the hairline. This can’t be detected easily, you can start noticing it if you go back to older pictures of yours that were taken a couple years apart; you might start seeing your hairline receding. This can be an obvious sign that you’re starting to lose hair.

2. Itching Head

Although itchy head may not always mean you’re going bald, but it can lead to that.

When your scalp starts itch, you can’t resist but rub the scalp to stop the feeling. Excessive rubbing, brushing, and scratching of the scalp can cause some damage to your hair follicles that is irreversible.

3. Hair Loss After Showering or Brushiong

Most people lose hair after showering or brushing it, that’s not out of the ordinary. You might see 5 or 6 hairs in your hand after you put on shampoo, but that shouldn’t be concerning.

What can be a problem is excessive hair loss. If you notice that you lose a lot of hair every day, that could be a sign that you’ll start going bald pretty soon, and you should start thinking of ways to stop it.
