Reasons for hair loss in men under 25

Everyone wishes to have strong, dense and healthy hair. But in the current era, having beautiful hair is becoming a distant dream. While it is common to lose hair in 40’s and 50’, most people today are experiencing severe hair loss in their 20’s as well, which is leading them to premature baldness.

There are various reasons for premature hair loss and baldness, but the following are the fundamentals of this mishap.

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disorder in which your immune system tends to attack your hair follicles, hair follicles are the tissues from where the hair grows. This weakens the hair follicles and they stop growing hair, which leads to patchy hair loss.

There is no pattern in this kind of hair loss and you may experience extensive hair shed from all over the scalp. People suffering from Alopecia Areata have large spot or patches of baldness on their head.

Unhealthy lifestyle

Having an improper and irregular lifestyle badly affects your overall health, as well as your hair. Untimely sleep, unhealthy diet, and excessive stress can trigger the deficiency of some nutrients in your body, ultimately causing hair loss. Trichologists in Dubai suggest having a diet plan full of essential nutrients to better your hair growth.


Most of the young people are going through a lot of stress these days. Exam pressure, financial worries, balancing study with other matters and problems in relationships are the main sources of stress in most men in their 20’s. Going through so many stress can cause severe hair loss and other health issues. When we are under too much stress, it affects the circulation of the blood in our body, which leads to insufficient nutrients supply to the hair and causes them to fall.

Over styling

Overuse of hair styling products can damage the hair follicles, which causes hair thinning and hair loss. Some tools such as hair straightener and hair dryer exert heat on your hair, this heat greatly affects the health of your hair follicles, makes them unable to grow enough hair. Most hair experts recommend using heating tools from a far position to avoid any breakage of hair follicles.

Hereditary hair loss

Genes are among the prominent culprits of causing hair thinning and hair loss. Men suffering from hereditary hair loss start losing hair in their early 20’s and makes a pattern of hair loss, more commonly called as Male Pattern Baldness.

In this condition, the hairline starts to recede in your 20’s and gradually covers the whole scalp by making an “M-shaped” pattern. In advanced cases of hereditary hair loss, only the back and sides of the scalp remain unaffected while elsewhere goes bald.
