One of the most common cosmetic issues that men face is hair loss. Hair loss can occur for many reasons and one of the myths of male pattern baldness is that, it only affects older men. A survey has shown that 47% of Irish men under 30 are experiencing hair loss. So, there must be other causes and today we are going to highlight some of the most common for you.
- Age – Even though hair loss is very common among younger men it is also associated with age. Hair loss is a natural part of ageing and this does affect millions of men across the globe.
- Genes – Balding can be genetic and this is the case for around 80% of men with hair loss. So, if your father suffered with hair loss or even your mother then you may loose your hair too. This is all to do with chromosomes which is a bit scientific but it does come down to your parents and those who came before them.
- Medical conditions – Baldness can also be caused by medical conditions such as alopecia, diabetes, high blood pressure and more. So, if you are experiencing hair loss, it may not be just down to age. Some medical treatments can cause hair loss too so it’s worth a check in with your doctor.
