Hi!

I wonder if anyone has experienced losing hair in late 20s?

My hair is thinning, but my family's history doesnt have any problems with hair loss. I am worried about losing lots of my hair. What should I do about it?

Sometimes our stress level can make us loose hair. I know that durring a really difficult time in my life I lost tons of hair but as soon as my stress level went down my hair grew back

I think you should go to a doctor. My hair started falling out when I was 27 - it's a long story, but it was a symptom of severe malnutrition caused by celiac disease. You may be anemic or have a vitamin or mineral deficiency. Or you may have a hormone or thyroid imbalance. Hair loss can also, in theory, be caused by stress, but I think the stress likely throws your hormones out of whack. In any case, see a doctor first (they'll likely give you the runaround, say you need to see a dermatologist, etc., but be firm about tests). Of course, my hair is still falling out, nearly 4 years later, so I can't say I was entirely successful, but I am hoping, as I get healthier, it will eventually stop.

If you had a baby not long time ago - that's another possibility, if you went through illness - same.

Most of us have this problem. The best solution is to cut/trim your hair, use less hairdryer and less chemicals on your hair, eat healthy nutritious food and use good quality shampoo followed by conditioner. Having hair mask once per week is also very profitable.

Sounds like everyone suggested what I thought of... hormones, stress, malnutrition are usually the top three.

Also if you've chemically treated your hair, i.e. perm or dye job, that can cause hair loss.

There is a condition called alopecia that can develop in someone for reasons that are hard to determine. Usually I believe the loss is more dramatic though.

If you're losing your hair in huge amounts - I think average is something like 50-100 hairs a day - if you're losing more than that I'd definitely see a doctor.
