At what age do we start balding?
Balding is a common issue amongst both men and women. Androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of baldness, but there’s many reasons why you could be losing your hair.
The average age of hair loss is between 30-40 years old. However, by the time you turn 30, you already have a 25% chance that early stages of baldness have started to appear. This is a general age range, but you can start balding at 20, you can even start balding at 16. You may start to see your hair line receding, or thinning on the top of your head.
Moreover, although hair loss is considered an issue for the aged, it’s become more and more common among younger generations. Studies show that hair loss starts earlier and earlier for each generation, which could be why this pattern is happening.
