Why men become bald in their early 30s?

Many of my friends look older than their actual ages because of their baldness. Earlier men become bald in their mid 40s or 50s. But now in the late 20s too. What's the reason?

The reason is that with every new generation, it is getting weaker with the kind of food that we have, stress and pollution and additional points. But also heredity plays a major role in making someone bald. For example if if someone's father got bald at 30 chances are that his son will get bald at 20 and so on. A doctor apparently told so...also eating oily food also cause baldness.

Besides heredity, the change in life style & eating habit, continuous work, and tension are the significant causes for all kinds of premature phenomena happening in human life. Diseases like blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes that normally happen after the middle age are widely seen in the younger generation nowadays. ‘Speed’ has become the law of life and everything rushes to the premature stage with a mad dash. Baldness is not an exemption.

Heredity is one of the reason but mostly stress causes the earlier baldness to happen. Today parents wants their children to settle in life quickly. They are giving so much stress on their children. Most of the parents are not giving healthy foods for their children during their school time. When they enter the college most of the people are staying in hostel and they are not having nutritious diets. In olden days people take oil bath twice in a week. It prevents the hair roots from getting grayed and spoiled or spitted. Now-a-days most of the people are not putting oil on their hair so the body gets heat and further they are working in a place by sitting merely 8 hours or more. Heat causes most of the baldness to occur.

I think some of it depends upon heredity and some on dandruff. I am not much aware as I have yet to go bald although well past my thirties.

suni51 Yes almost and still not bald, that's sign of my good health. :) - suni51 - 6 years ago

As Sunil pointed it,badness has a link with good health. And good health is a combo of right life style, good eating habits(no junk food)' above all maintaining a distance from Stress. Yoga can help in arresting baldness.

There are no well nutrition foods in this generation. To avoid early baldness we should eat healthy foods. Regular oil bath also helps to stop hair fall.

Early balness is attributed to stress, pollution and poor nutrition. The changing life style is major cause of early aldness.

May be they are not using proper oil..lol.

There may be more reasons behind it. Right now many people used to experiments with their hair. So it may turn reverse for them some time. 

These days eating habits are not as good as old days. And also food have changed lot. Not healthy at all food like fast food.


I believe stress, anxiety and heredity are the major factors why men are becoming bald by the time they reach early 30s.

Lack of good food, sleep and air is the cause of early baldness. Shockingly true. Today's lives are pathetic in terms of resistance, energy, etc.


It could be due to pollution, stress or Hereditary reasons.

Baldness is mainly due to 

  • Pollution
  • Junk food
  • Usage of chemical products
  • Hereditary
  • And drinking less water because when water intake is low the first effect is on hair.

Age is not only one cause of hair loss. I am 55 years old but I have hair on my whole head. I think hereditary and stress is main cause of losing and white hair.


I have noticed too that many men are getting bald and look older at younger age (around 30's) which make me wonder what is the reason behind this issue.  The problem is not only about getting bald at young age, if you notice many old age diseases are acquired by youngsters like heart diseases, etc. 

The reason behind this is technology oriented world has made our life more stressful, there is no time to relieve your stress, no time to socialize. People are running after money as world is becoming more competitive and everyone want t be ahead in this competition. This was not the case 40-50 years back. 


It may be due to lot of tensions about their future and responsibilities and even due to heriditory problem


I guess it is mainly hereditary and also due to life style. Wrong food habits, lack of cleanliness and also stress can cause havoc with the health of our hair and make people go bald when they are still young..

Its may be because of the stress these days people have compared to the people used to have in the past.
