Why does alopecia develop at the age of 30?

The hormonal factor is one of the most frequent causes in the development of alopecia at the age of 30, since it gives rise to androgenic alopecia, the most common of all. The Dihydrotestosterone is the androgen that causes hair miniaturization and the subsequent destruction of the hair follicle. This is what causes hair to fall out and not grow back.


We cannot deny that genetics also plays a key role in people with alopecia at 30. Baldness also has a genetic component, so if you have a history of this hair pathology, the chances of developing it increase.

stress episodes

Experiencing strong and prolonged episodes of Stress It can also be the cause of intense hair loss. Of course, in these cases, hair loss is usually reversible, so the hair will grow back without the need to undergo a hair transplant.
