What causes hair loss in the mid-twenties?

16/10/2015

Happy group of friends. Mixed race group. Isolated on a white background.

Hair loss can affect any gender, any ethnic background and any age-group. We still think of it being a condition of the middle aged – and it is fair to say this is the time when it is more likely to happen – but there is no getting away from the fact that hair loss can be even more profound and when it hits people when they are young. It appears to be more prolific in young people in the twenties so is this to do with western culture? Is it to do with the way we are living that is causing an increase in hair loss in these early years?

Hair loss has always affected people from an early age. Certain illnesses or hereditary issues can strike at the most inopportune times but it is also true that bad diet, hairstyles which cause undue stress on hair follicles and other modern cultural trends can trigger the loss of your hair.

So here’s the good news! There probably is something you can do if you are noticing a problem with hair loss in your twenties. Take a look at the list below:

Stress

The digital 21st century has brought with it a whole bundle of stresses, pressures and traumas for the young person finding their way in life. These stresses can have a powerful effect on our lives in more ways than one but we rarely link the issue of hair loss. Stress can operate at low levels so it niggles away at you without creating too much of a problem and when it goes on too long the “state” begins to feel normal. Take a step back from your life and analyse where you are at. If you detect things are getting heavy at times look for what is causing trauma in your life and if you cannot remove it – there are sure to be ways in which you can reduce it by approaching it in more healthy ways.

Smoking

Not many people are aware of this link either and it needs little explanation for the sake of hair loss. Stop Smoking: You are putting your whole life at risk.

Diet

These are the days of ready meals, takeaways, additives, and delicious saturated fats. It’s going to be in your late teens and early twenties when this type of eating is going to be at a peak. But your scalp, hair, and follicles need good nutrients as much as any other part of your body, so get to know which nutrients and vitamins are most useful for your hair and balance your diet. If necessary consider taking nutrient supplements.

Regular exercise

In the 21st century we are becoming more office bound – sitting in front of computers. At night we go home and play games on the computer or vegetate in front of the TV. Overall good health is essential for a healthy head of hair so don’t forget the partner to a good diet: good exercise. Build times into your day when you can commit to light exercise – it can make all the difference.

Stable hormones

Hair loss in women is often due to hormonal fluctuations so speak to your doctor about whether this maybe the source of the problem and he/she may recommend hormonal treatment.

Watch those freaky hairstyles

We all want to stay in fashion and create a unique appearance which reflects our identities – this is especially true for the young person in their twenties. But be careful of the hairstyles which put stress on your follicles for long periods of time (dreadlocks, pony-tails, cornrows etc). Rather than keeping the style in all the time, give your hair a rest at regular periods.
