Reasons for Hair loss in men under 25

Hair loss is normally considered as an aging condition that most people start to experience in their 40’s and 50’s. However, there is a growing number of young individuals who are suffering from a particular hair loss in their 20’s as well. There are many reasons for such issue but the following are main culprits.

Over styling

In the modern lifestyle, hair styling has become an essential part of someone’s personality. Most People spend a huge amount of money to wear different hairstyles. However, over styling may take you in deep troubles of hair loss. Hairstyles that put too much pressure on your hair such as ponytails, braids, and weaves may weaken your hair follicles and cause hair loss.

Moreover, some tools such as hair straightener and hair dryer exert too much heat on your hair, which badly affects the hair follicles. Trichologists in Dubai suggest to avoid overuse of this tool and if it is necessary, try to use them from a fair distance so that these may not damage your hair follicles.

Unhealthy Lifestyles in young people

In the current era, most of the young guys are developing the habits that are damaging for their overall health and hair growth. Lack of sleep, unhealthy diets, alcohol consumption and smoking habits trigger many health issues and cause nutritional deficiencies, ultimately causing hair loss.

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disorder in which your immune systems mistakenly attacks your own body cells. In this way, it also attacks your hair follicles and causes hair loss. Such a type of hair loss occurs in small round patches on all over the scalp and in the severe cases causes complete baldness, which is also known as Alopecia totallis.

This condition is more common in young people and it is mostly triggered by a Thyroid disorder, childbirth, lupus and hormonal imbalance.


In this era of hustle and bustle, stress has become one of the most common issues for both, men and women. Financial worries, problems in studies and uncertainties in relationships are the main sources of stress for the young generation. People going through all these conditions may suffer from so many health issues along with hair loss.

Too much stress disturbs our body’s normal functioning and trigger nutritional deficiency, which leads to serious health issues.

Androgenic Alopecia

Hair loss triggered by genetics is one of the most occurring hair loss condition among men and women. In men, the hereditary hair loss starts by receding the frontal hairline and with the passage of time covers the whole scalp. However, women with this condition experience hair thinning from all over the scalp.

Androgenic Alopecia in men is treated with topical products such as minoxidil and Propecia. These remedies only halt your hair loss but may not restore the hair on your hair. Once the hair loss stops, you may need to undergo a hair transplant in Dubai to get the natural hair back on your scalp.
