3 Reasons Why People Under 30 Lose Hair
Hair loss in your twenties and thirties is not uncommon, with around a quarter of people noticing hair thinning and loss or having hair growth concerns.
Psoriasis, Seborrheic Dermatitis and Folliculitis are skin and scalp conditions that can cause short term hair loss. In the minority of cases, where infection has caused scarring, the hair loss may be permanent. In most cases, the hair regrows once the scalp condition has been treated. It’s important to speak to a hair loss expert for a correct diagnosis and the correct treatment.

Stress or Physiological ‘Shock’
Do you work too hard? Stay up too late? Think too much? Train too hard? Take prescription medication or supplements? Try strict diets?
Any kind of significant ‘shock to the system’ has the potential to disrupt the normal hair growth cycle. Rapid changes in diet, lifestyle and health concerns (mental and physiological) can trigger hair loss or slow hair growth. High stress levels, illness, certain medications or starting a new, strict diet are common prompts for hair growth concerns. Thankfully, this type of hair loss is typically temporary and normal hair growth can resume once the trigger has been addressed.
To prevent or address this type of hair loss you can;
- try gradual changes rather than dive in head-first so as not to ‘shock’ your body
- eat a nutritious, balanced diet with sufficient protein, vitamins and minerals
- have a healthy lifestyle - get enough quality sleep, exercise regularly, drink plenty of water
- manage stress levels - do exercise and activities you enjoy and find time to relax
Androgenetic alopecia, also known as male or female pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss. This genetically influenced hair loss condition is caused by changing hormone levels that impact the hair growth cycle. The hair growth phase progressively shortens but shedding remains the same, leading to hair being shed faster than it can grow.
Male pattern baldness occurs in a distinctive pattern in men, starting with a receding hairline and thinning of the crown, progressing to complete baldness on top and the horseshoe-shape of hair around the sides and back. Over time, the loss can progress to total baldness. Female pattern baldness occurs as diffuse thinning all over the scalp.
The only permanent solution for androgenetic alopecia is hair transplantation. Gro is the leading provider of the most refined hair transplant technique with natural results guaranteed. You can regrow your own hair, for life.
