Have you noticed that younger guys are loosing their hair sooner? I noticed that guys in their 20 are loosing their hair now. My husband wears a "baldy" and I love it, so trust me I am not trying to be funny! I have just noticed that it seems to be happening alot. What do you think? Have you noticed that too?

Yup..I have noticed that too. I think it has to do with the fast changing lifestyles of people. Loosing hair has a lot to do with hereditary also.. Most people loose hair early because someone in their family would have lost it at a young age...

It does seem that way. Maybe it has something to do with chemical pesticide residue in our foods.

Yes baldness is happening more and more to younger guys and it progresses fast in younger ages, maybe as it is an inherited thing it gets more and more aggressive with every generation lol .. NO offense too, I'm balding in my 30s :)

I have noticed a lot of younger guys gong bald, but since I haven't been around long enough to compare to other generations, I don't know if it's happening sooner or not. My hair got thinner when I was 19 or 20, but never progressed to the point where it was very noticable. I'm 26 now, who knows? Maybe I'll still go bald in my twenties. But yeah, I think it's usually genetics.

Stress and Trauma - this can cause constriction of blood supply and poor nutrition to the hair and scalp.. Diet and Nutrition - a poor diet, which can include diets high in animal fat, too much protein, too much fast food, or quick weight loss diets.

Yes, I did notice some younger men loosing hair at their late teens or early twenties, and my boyfriend is one of them. I guess in his case it's more on hereditary since his dad is almost completely bald at the age of 48, so that must have something to do with it. But I also learned other causes of hair loss from our classes way back in college like hormonal imbalance due to under active or overactive thyroid gland, or some undiagnosed medical conditions such as diabetes or lupus. But male hair loss cases due to these causes are pretty rare. Mostly hair loss in men are often caused by genetics if not aging. Well, it's just my two cents though. :)
