Don't we all feel bad for someone who has premature balding? I went to high school with a few people who were almost entirely bald by the time we graduated. This is not something that anyone wants to deal with. Our society is all about staying young. We read articles and see stories on the news all the time about the new ways to help stay young looking. Well, balding prematurely goes against that, and can cause a lot of stress, anxiety and lowered self-esteem.

The one thing you want to do if you experience premature balding is to try to stay away from the pit of stress and lowered self-esteem that you can easily fall into. In this pit, you are likely to start pulling away from friends and social situations. You may not be able to sleep at night because you are so worried about what is going on. Well, if it makes you feel any better, you are by no means alone.

Balding affects up to 30 percent of men. Luckily, there are steps you can take and treatments you can do to help slow or stop the process. The main treatments are either oral or topical and they are taken every day. Unfortunately, 95 percent of balding cases are due to genetics. This means that you cannot prevent it from happening. In addition, if you stop the treatments at any time, your hair loss will start back up again.

Dealing with Premature Balding

The best ways to deal with premature balding are to either accept it and move on, or go ahead and start treatments. It doesn't matter if you are in your early twenties and find yourself using hair loss treatments. Remember, you are not alone. If you do not want to suffer the loss of your hair, then don't wait until later in life to start treatment. You will be happier if you go ahead and catch it early.
