We often consider ‘hair loss’ with young children or adults, particularly gentlemen who experience male pattern baldness. However, it is common for teenagers to also experience symptoms of thinning, balding, or shedding. When this occurs, hair loss can cause a reduction in self-esteem, confidence, and social life.
If you are a teenager (or parent of) reading this and you notice signs of hair loss, you are not alone. There is a growing population of boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 19 who share your concerns, and there are a variety of treatments available to you and following a consultation: advice on lifestyle changes, grooming habits and in some cases supplement advice that will improve the health of your hair.
