  • The first thing you should do if your hairline is receding is to ask a dermatologist about it.
  • The origin could be your hormones, an iron deficiency, or alopecia, among others. In that case, coconut oil won’t thicken up a receding hairline.
  • However, coconut oil could stimulate the hair follicles to regrow your receding hairline if it lacks protein, for example. Also, coconut oil could help your hair if it’s frequently colored or thinning due to frequent bleaching processes.

The doctor will recommend the best treatment for your receding hairline. I’m pretty sure The treatment may not include coconut oil.

Since I’m a professional hairdresser, I’ve never heard of a dermatologist recommending coconut oil to regrow your hairline.


Coconut oil is useful in many situations, anyway.

For example, coconut oil is great for deep hair repair. You can even leave it on overnight.

You can also include a few drops of oil in the bleach, to protect the hair during a bleaching session.

Many of my clients even use it as an anti-frizz serum after styling their hair.


However,   coconut oil won’t help you regrow your receding hairline.  

Instead, coconut oil can soothe your scalp, which could help your hair grow stronger.

I’ll tell you more about that below.

I suggest you read this article with my advice in mind.   If you’re concerned about your receding hairline, you should see a dermatologist.  


However, if you feel that, your hairline is actually receding because you color or bleach your hair too often, or it lacks protein, coconut oil can help you.


It contains vitamins, amino acids, and fatty acids that nourish and moisturize the scalp. And here’s the most important part.

Your scalp is where your hair follicles grow your hair.

So, every time you apply coconut oil, you moisturize your scalp with nutrients.  This will stimulate hair growth slowly and gradually.  


What I mean is that the oil won’t grow your hairline quickly.

Instead, you’ll need to be consistent with the coconut oil application.

That’s what I’ll talk about next.

The hairline is the most exposed area to the sun, hairstyles, wind, and pollution.

If you add dyeing, bleaching, flat ironing, or curling iron abuse, the damage increases.


So, you should protect your hair from the sun, reduce the use of heat tools and coloring sessions, and add coconut oil to your hair care routine.

How to do it?

  • Apply coconut oil at least   three times a week   for best results.
  •   Follow this routine for at least eight months   to start noticing significant changes in your hairline.

In time, you’ll notice new hair growth in your recovering hairline.

How to use coconut oil?


  •   Apply a drop of coconut oil every five centimeters to your damp hairline.  
  • Wait three minutes for it to settle in the hair.
  • Massage your hair for five minutes.
  • Wait three minutes for the oil to penetrate. Don’t worry if you feel your scalp tingling.
  • Massage your hairline in circles with your fingers.
  •   Leave the coconut oil on for 20 minutes   and rinse with your usual shampoo and conditioner.



Coconut oil can promote hair growth. But if you have a receding hairline due to hormonal issues or vitamin deficiency, it’s best to ask a dermatologist.

A dermatologist can provide you with alternatives such as hormone treatments, amino acid supplements, micro hair implants, or hair transplants.
