Hairloss In Your Twenties: 5 Things You Need to Know
Think hairloss only happens when you reach your fifties? The truth is that premature hairloss in can strike as early as your twenties.
A full head of hair is associated with youth and vitality. It is not discussed openly, but hairloss impacts a man’s self-esteem. Men who have experienced hairloss in their twenties describe a feeling of losing control, and even a harsh reminder of the passage of time.
Here are 5 things you need to know about hairloss in your twenties:
- Signs of hairloss can appear at age 15.
Hairloss begins variably among men across the world. The earliest signs of hairloss can appear as early as 15 years old. This is because of the increased testosterone production during puberty. The testosterone is broken down into the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which inhibits the follicle’s ability to produce new hair.
- Heredity impacts premature hairloss.
Your genetics is the biggest factor when it comes to hairloss. This means that if you have a family history of hairloss, you’re very likely to experience it too.
- Male pattern hairloss is the most common hairloss problem of men in their early twenties.
1 out of 4 men in their early twenties is plagued with genetically triggered male pattern hairloss or androgenetic alopecia. Genes affect the age at which a man begins to lose his hair and the extent, rate, shape, and pattern of hairloss. In most men, it begins at the temples and the crown.
- Poor lifestyle affects hairloss.
While genes play a major role in hairloss, your lifestyle can impact your hair’s health as well. A poor diet can take its toll on your hair, as your hair needs keratin, protein, and other essential nutrients to stay healthy. Excessive smoking and drinking also interferes with the transport of nutrients to the hair and scalp.
