It's Time to Rediscover Confidence

Can Puberty Cause Hair Loss?

Puberty Cause Hair Loss

With the onset of puberty can come hormonal changes and growing pains, literally. Both boys and girls are susceptible to hair loss during puberty, and sometimes for similar hormonal reasons.

In teenaged females, hair loss can often come about for a number of reasons. Certain medication such as birth control can cause hormonal imbalances, as can a poor diet. For both men and women of any age, extreme stress or a traumatic event can also contribute to hair loss. For men in particular, an overabundance of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), common during puberty, can lead to hair loss. For a great deal of men, a receding hairline usually develops in earnest by their late 20s, but given certain genetics and hormones, a receding hairline and male pattern baldness can start during the middle teenage years, during puberty.

Ultimately, hormonal changes can affect every part of the body, including the hair. However, if someone in their teenaged years is experiencing abnormal levels of hair loss, they should consult a physician to rule our any other more serious causes. Hair loss in your teens can be even more embarrassing than hair loss in late adulthood, given that hair loss is generally not associated with teenagers.

If you are experiencing permanent hair loss in your teenage years, the outlook can seem bleak. Most hair loss treatments will require constant upkeep – and constant monetary investment – for the rest of your life. Rather than suffering through decades of ineffectual, expensive, and labor-intensive treatments, consider scalp micropigmentation. Scalp micropigmentation works by injecting small amounts of natural pigment onto the scalp, leading to a fuller looking head of hair. This can usually be done in a few treatments, and is completely permanent, meaning you should not need retouching.
