Thanks for sticking with me. 🙏🏻

I Scream Is Cool August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Really nice clip :).

truth be told August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Hahahaha The framed photo directly behind you… I want that hairline

Sergeant. August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Alex Turner have widow peak

Mr C August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Bro it really pisses me off that people associate receding hairline with widow's peak…like this misconception has made people view widow's peak as an ugly hairline and should be removed…

KongSchlong August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Can you have mild temple recession that just stops? Like mine have gone back a bit from when I was 18 but I can’t see any other signs of receding or balding

Ravi Kumar#RK August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

U know what ,My widows peak part is thinning ,not temple recession!

Dilwala Adu August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

I have the same hairline (Widow's peak)
Since 3 years is it widows peak

Anas Rm August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Can u recede your hairline and stop at widow's peak

Hussein Baghdadi August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Thanks a lot Robin. My widows peak is progressing, do you recommend Nioxin system 1?

RHYAN August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Ima just wait and see how my hairline changes. I think I have a widows peak, and due to the pattern amongst both my mums and dads side of the family; I think instead of balding Ima go grey early.

R V August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

I got a small widows peak, born with it. My temples have very slowly been receding since I was 21 and it's only really become noticable to other people now, pushing 26. I actually don't have a problem with it, what I HATE is that one side is receding faster than the other so the hairline is uneven, if it were even it'd look 👌 might jump on minox and fin tbh. Still have a full head of hair, so why not.

Callum Adams 101 August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Robin u have to try Mitch reformer. Honestly it’s great and I have Moroccan oil texture clay,da wax, and cavalier clay in my rotation you should really try it honestly considering what u want in a hair style look and feel wise I think it would do amazing.

Vaibhav Nagar August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

You should review Dauntless hair products by Mike from ModernManTv 😉

Marcos Ferrer August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

UP !!!!

emf emf August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

I have both. Always had a big widow peak but now My temples are slowly receding. Just like Zidane.

Andrea Carelli August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Matthew mc wears a toupee. No window peeks or receding !

Harrison Ganner August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

I get Instagram ads for stuff to do with losing hair and slowing down a receding hair line quite a bit. Could you "myth bust" these? So called shampoos with nutrients etc. Are they any better than a quality off the shelf regular shampoo?

Adam Daniels August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

I've been told multiple times that my hairline is receding but I just have a slight widows peak.

Samy August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

mcconaughey had a hair transplant or some other treatment, there is a mugshot of him from the late nineties where you can see that he was heavily receding

pure justice97546 August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Hey James I really like your videos and when I saw your review of Tom Ford fragrances I instantly fall in love with your channel! I have a question for you: What is the perfect rose fragrance for men in summer I can’t find any … any thoughts ? 💭 love ❤️

Yernazar U August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Robin, what can you say about uppercut matte clay? precisely about hold. Is this worth to buy it? How long it holds?

The Wolf August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Hey Robin , Can you do a review for cloud control by Blumaan ?

Mierez Saturday August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Fascinating and informative.
Well done.

Anoop Thakur August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Can u make a video of Robert Downey Jr hairstyles ❣️✨

Alex Schoenberger August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Weird I was born with a so called receding hairline my whole life and it hasn’t changed would it be a mature hairline ?

Safwan C August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Really liked your outfit in this video Robin, looks very sharp and nicely put together

Sugar Singh August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Thanks for the info robin. Hope you are staying safe and well during these crazy times!

Infinity Stones August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Absolutely fantastic information for gents with one hairline or the other or both! Well done, Robin! HUZZAH! 😀😀😀

Rigel Kent August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

My father have a receding hairline and I am scared that it will happen to me later

Clark Mannen August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

I think it’s important to remind anyone watching that very few men’s hairlines remain the same from childhood into adulthood. Even someone with a strong hairline such as Robin has undergone slight temporal recession. (Emphasis on slight, Robin is in no way losing his hair as of now)

Mike Gilman August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Brill video! Could you possibly do a video on hairstyles with a widows peak?

yash raul August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Please make a video on maintaining hairstyle during Quarantine

Kashif Nadeem August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

I cant believe that after the 90's for almost 30 yeard we as men havent made a medicine that can lower dht without side effects. Its unbelievable that we only have finasteride and dutasteride and people are scared of taking these. Yes maybe u won't have side effects but most people have side effects when they leave the medicines and that's just scary and not worth it!

Krish Shrestha August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

You can’t talk about widows peak without Leonardo DiCaprio 😂

Simply Boy Mohim August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

Earlier this year I actually thought my hairline was receding … until i looked into some photos from 2016 when I had man bun and figured out that I was not receding but my hairline is mainly the type of widow's peak…. I am not sure what will happen in the future but for now its just widow's peak.. it's not receding right now.. not sure about the future… thanks for the video. nice explanation

TheCamshafter August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am

I'm 53 now but still have the majority of my hair, not balding at the crown but definitely have receded at the hairline and temples but not enough to be too obvious. It started at about age 28 or so but has not got progressively worse since then. My brother was going bald at 21 and now is completely bald at 55. Avoid too much hair product and use a high-quality shampoo and conditioner. Maintain a healthy diet rich in iron, zinc and biotin. Guys who lose their hair may end up letting the rest of themselves go, like skincare. Work on your body and improve your dress sense to compensate if hair loss confidence is an issue. Stop thinking girls are going to reject you because you are going a bit bald. Many guys who are bald or balding look really great if they don't adopt the comb-over or spiky hair recede look. Embrace it and don't try to hide it by having a stupid hairstyle or wear endless beanie's.

kip1x16 August 1, 2020 - 6:50 am
