With the ongoing tradition, Premature balding is a social stigma. However, losing a few strands of hair is part and parcel of the daily routine and tradition of aging, but premature baldness is an odd situation to reside in.

According to the survey, about 85% of men endure baldness by 50 years. So, On average, males with a family history of premature balding, about 22- 25%, start losing their hair from the age of 20- 23, and in their thirties, males usually lose 50- 60% of the hair from the scalp.

Classical description

Premature balding can be explained stage by stage. Initially, the hair in the temple region of the scalp starts thinning, which gradually or steadily starts to reduce in volume, resulting formation of small patches on the scalp. So, these multiple small patches start to combine to form larger patches or patches with increased boundaries and surface area. Therefore, this condition of huge scalp patches without hair is termed Baldness. When this condition crops up in the twenties or early thirties, it is termed Premature Balding or baldness.

Causes of Premature Balding

Usually, losing a few strands of hair on daily basis is the process of wear and tear. But it takes about 24-25 weeks for the hair follicle to regenerate a new hair strand. But the complication arises when the hair follicle, for any given reason, is unable to regenerate a new hair strand at that spot. When this condition is left untreated, then that set off to a stage of Baldness. 

So, Other causes for baldness: Hereditary, chemically treated scalp, Dandruff, Scalp infections, thyroid condition, Hormonal dysfunction, pre-existing medications. 

In females: Menopause is an additional cause.

Hence, Conduct a few trials which might indicate, if your simple hair loss is traveling towards premature baldness:

  • Thinning of scalp hairline, especially from the frontal region or temple region indicates the need for medical intervention
  • Appearance of small hairless patches on the scalp, where the same patch might slowly increase boundaries, indicates the need for medical intervention.
  • Just run both your hands through your hair strands for 3 times, if there are more than 8-10 strands of hair that glide down, then this needs medication intervention
  • Losing more than 20- 30 strands of hair when you comb or wash your hair indicates the need for medical intervention.
