Millennials and Gen Z Losing Their Hair Earlier?

Although hair loss has been associated with aging, it’s impact and effects are being seen at a much earlier age. 

We regularly have men and women in their 20s and 30s schedule a consultation with us. 

Millennials, those born between the early 1980s and late 1990s, and Gen Z, those born in the 2000s, are noticing that they are beginning to lose their hair much earlier than their older siblings. What could be the cause for the premature receding hairline? Of course genetics can always play a big role in hair loss, but let’s take a look at a few other possibilities.

What Is Your Diet Like?

Your diet can directly impact the health of your hair. 

A lack of protein in the diet has been shown to promote hair loss. Biotin is essential for the production of a hair protein called keratin, which is why biotin supplements are often marketed for hair growth. By this time, the deficiency may have already affected your hair health.

A poor diet, with a lack of the right nutrients (including vitamins A, C, D and E, zinc, iron and protein) may slow down hair growth and potentially cause hair loss. With the more popular adoption of a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, particularly among millennials, an individual may not be getting enough protein and iron (which meat is a great source of) and could be a factor in hair loss. 

Eating a balanced diet and including supplements of iron and protein is important for healthy hair.

How Are You Styling Your Hair?

Many of the popular hairstyles among millennials could be a contributing factor to hair loss. 

Excessive bleaching and coloring of your hair can cause hair breakage. Styles such as high ponytails, tight braids (cornrows) and man-buns, can also cause your hair to break and lead to hair loss.

Early Prevention Methods

Signs of hair loss, especially in millennials, can often be stopped! You can do this by lowering your emotional stress, eating a balanced dit and being aware of the stress your hairstyle can be putting on your hair. If, after altering your lifestyle to a healthier one, you are still losing your hair, a PRP therapy session or hair transplant might be the best solution. Hair transplants are no longer uncommon or taboo – recent social media star Mike Majlak and others in their 20s and 30s have started their hair restoration journey with ease.

Our gold standard, the FUE method, is a minimally invasive procedure in which hair follicles are taken from the back of your head and placed in the thinning or balding areas on the top of the head.

The best men’s haircuts for hair loss

Suffering from hair loss but not yet ready for a hair transplant? Hold yourself over with one of these hair loss-concealing cuts and styles.
The following cuts and styles are recommended by leading LA hair stylists who are skilled professionals in helping their hair thinning patients stretch their hair coverage.
The crew cut
This cut is great for hiding receding hairlines. A proper crew cut will be short in the back with a bit more length in the front. The back should blend nicely towards the front. The longer length in the front will give the appearance of fuller, thicker hair.
Style this cut by creating a side part. You can use a gel or pomade to sweep the hair to one side. If the gel isn’t cutting it, try a blow dryer and hairspray.
The slick back
This cut is ideal for concealing crown balding. The top should be long with short sides. The long hair on top will work to hide the crown balding while the short sides keep the cut looking fresh and clean.
To style this cut, use gel or pomade on wet hair. Use fingers and wide brush to sweep hair back. Using the blow dryer will help add volume. To keep the look going all night, finish with hair spray.
The textured spiky top
This cut has definitely been updated from its former 90’s and early 2000’s glory days. Rather than loads of gel and pointy spikes, we’re going for a textured, multi-dimensional look that hides thinning in the front and middle.
Styling hair up will create height, while layers add texture. Together, this conceals thinning and hair loss.
Get creative when styling this cut. Sea salt spray will help distinguish the texture when applied to wet hair. As hair dries, it will have a textured full look.
The buzzcut
This cut is great for anyone who’s balding. Just ask for a #2 clipper shave and wa-la. Bonus – it’s so easy to style and take care of.
