The Reasons Behind Hair Loss In Young Men

There are many men in their 20’s and 30’s experiencing this condition. Since this is believed to be a sign of old age, people consider hair loss in young men as premature balding. Here are some reasons behind this condition:


Stress triggers conditions like trichotillomania, alopecia areata, and telogen effluvium. These problems lead to balding. Fortunately, premature balding due to these conditions can be treated by stress management.

Poor Diet

The scalp and the hair is made up of cells that depend on essential nutrients for their health. Deficiency in proteins, zinc, and other vitamins and minerals may lead to hair loss. A healthy diet helps prevent the formation of Dihydrotestosterone that causes hair loss in young men.


Changes in one’s hormones can be cause by a sudden change in lifestyle. Diseases, medications, and unhealthy habits like smoking and not getting enough sleep can trigger the formation of the DHT hormone. Hair needs oxygen to grow. Smoking reduces your oxygen levels while the carbon monoxide from the cigarette smoke weakens hair follicles.

To prevent premature baldness, make sure that your diet is rich in zinc, iron, and magnesium. You also need a regular 7-8 hours of sleep to prevent hormonal imbalance. The next time you shop for food, make sure to include milk, walnuts, spinach, eggs, spinach, broccoli, sweet potatoes, salmon, and oysters in your list. To prevent the formation of DHT, aim for 8 glasses of water every day. Drinking green tea instead of water can also help block this hormone from your body.
