Hair loss is more common in younger people than ever before according to recent statistics and 30 is the age where a man decides to do something about it.
The statistics which have just been revealed by the UK’s leading hair loss clinic; The Belgravia Centre, take into account more than 10,000 men.
The results show there is an exponential rise in the number of male hair loss sufferers between the ages of 21 and 30 and thereafter patient numbers gradually decline with age.
According to the Belgravia Centre’s senior trichologist, Leonora Doclis, young people make up a large proportion of hairloss sufferers these days.
“I’d say at least 3 in 5 of our clients are in their early 20s,” Leonora said.
The previous consensus was that two-thirds of men will have some degree of hair loss by the time they’re 40 but new statistics suggest the problem is more prevalent at a younger age.
“The statistics indicate that the average age that a man starts to experience hair loss is declining and the number of those affected are growing,” Leonora said.
Hair loss is a multi-factorial condition, it can be the side effect of medication or another ailment, has been linked to various lifestyle and environmental factors, and can be caused or aggravated by stress. Male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia, is the most common hair loss condition observed in men and is the result of the hormone known as DHT (dihydrotestosterone), however, there are effective treatments for hair loss that can reverse the effects of male pattern baldness and prevent further hair loss.
