Why the hell are zoomer men going bald so quickly and so young?

The amount of men in the early/mid 20s I see going around and in my friend group who are visibly receding or outright balding is insane. I was in a group of 5 different guys aged 22-35 at work and all of us had receding hairlines. There's no way it was this bad in the past, right?

What's the cause? Is it exercise? Because it happens to fit guys too. Diet? Alcohol? We know zoomers drink less than ever, and I feel like people ate even worse in the past. That was with smoking, too. What can we even do about this?

    Balding is inversely indicator of status and money. Zoomers are fucked. They control less the. 1% of all money, and are generally bottom of the hierarchical structures that take place in the last~60 years. People live longer. There are outliers for sure, but you're a fag - whoever you are, wherever you are - so you don't deserve a detailed explanation.

      Idk man, I have had a mature hairline since 10 years old and even that receded about 5cm. 22 right now

      I'm inclined to believe this is an element of it, people's diets are absolutely fucked and everything you consume is lathed in a chemical cocktail. Cancer of the stomach and bowels is at an all time high. Overconsumption is also an element, people eat too much and too heavy and while it grows them, it takes a toll on their body, especially combined with the more "contaminated" food.

    Low testosterone causes DHT production to increase to compensate. Testosterone levels keep falling for reasons no one knows. Probably related to diet and sedentary lifestyles though. If zoomers have DHT instead of testosterone during puberty they end up hairy and bald with pimples and high pitched voice.

      balls make test. 5a-reductase turns it into DHT. aromatase turns test into estrogen. if you're balding you have a lot of 5a-reductase and youre also probably fat as shit so all your T is converted into bald juice and mantit juice, hence the phenotype of the average man

        Your sensitivity to DHT is a major factor, and that is purely genetic. The amount of DHT in your system only becomes relevant to hair loss if you are already genetically prone to be sensitive to DHT. So the effect of obesity is probably marginal.

        pls respond, is it possible to save my hair?

        Fin to reduce DHT and arrest the process that's damaging the follicles, minox and maybe micro needling to stimulate regrowth. All other solutions are snake oil.

I have a lot of baby hairs where my hairline has receded, does that mean I can still grow adult hairs?

                These are steps I took which greatly improved my sleep:
                >remove all caffeine and stimulants
                Completely cut it out, not even in the morning. Caffeine/stimulants inhibit melatonin production so low melatonin producers can have sleep ruined even by a morning coffee.
                >go to bed at the same time every night
                >wake up at the same time every morning
                This helps your body develop a consistent rhythm so you can get tired at the right time each night and be hormonally prepared for sleep.
                >walk outside for ~20 minutes in the sun shortly after waking up
                This kickstarts melatonin production. Contrary to what most people think, melatonin is produced slowly all day long and not just before bed time, so it's important to get full spectrum sunlight in your eyes to tell your body to get started on it.

                If you do these things you'll set yourself up for much more consistent and deep sleep. You're waking up all the time because your body's hormonal cycles are out of whack.

                As much as possible. All sleep goes in cycles, not all sleep is deep, but you shouldn't be waking up in the middle of the night every night and you shouldn't feel unrested when you get up in the morning.

                I wake up so dead like I haven't slept but 3 minutes every single morning.
                I wake up randomly a hour or two before wake up time almost always but sleep again pretty quickly.
                I can't remember the last time I had restful sleep. Even if I sleep for 12 hours I wake up feeling dead tired.

    I'm becoming more confident in the scalp tension theory by the day. It explains the genetic aspect and why mpb has a general pattern but progresses in different ways: your skull shape is genetic and determins the progression. It explains high dht levels and why reducing dht helps: dht is involved in healing and scaring. It even explains anacdotal stuff like bald men having tough shiny scalps. I challenge you to find a flaw in this theory. Doesn't fix anything of course scaring is still really Hard to deal with but "know your enemy" right?

            Sometimes it does. Hair transplants are not universally successful. Not all follicles survive transplant. If transplanted follicles aren't implanted to the correct depth, they die and are lost forever. It could be that the transplanted follicles in a successful operation are being placed deep enough in the scalp to ensure adequate blood flow, regardless of scalp scarring.

                that might be real poetic if the thing i was ment to see wasnt drawn in in ms paint. im not even necessarily disagreeing with you, this just isnt evidence of anything.

                If those guys were the same age today and posted pics on IST they would be bombarded with OH NO NO NO and "just shave it off bro" replies

                and i bet even you knows that doesent mean shit. people on this board are so deep into body dismorphia they start seeing it other people. reference, that guy /

    Low test
    Constant stress
    Gym and tainted fitness supplements (Look up the connection between balding and creatine/protein shakes)

    This comes off as pseudo science but I believe it has a lot to do with the output/reward ratios men experience as well as diet, a man's character, etc.

    I say output/reward because putting much out and not getting much back makes you feel bad, as does being apathetic, stupid, etc. All of those things are a detriment and your spirit knows it, and it creates stress in their lives. Mental issues let's say. Diet has been discussed and I can support that. I feel noticeably less driven after eating a fast food item.

    With regard to character, your moral baseline, if you don't adhere to it well can wreck you too. So add internal conflict, bad diet/exercise, and a slew of other things and basically it just causes an entropic outcome on the body. Some is genetic too obviously but in my case this has been the observance. I'm also not bald, nor balding, but had a high stress point in which my hair line receded but after voluntarily de-stressing for a bit, fasting, etc. it came back quite strong.

    20yo Zoomer who's been balding since early puberty here. My biggest guess is childhood trauma and all sorts of stress that us modern people, including (You), face everyday. It ain't that much of a problem tho unless you are a gay who thinks looks are everything. Tell me i cope how much you want but i stopped giving a shit some years ago cause there are much bigger problems than looks and le women

      Pretty clear that you stopped giving a shit because you've accepted that you're hopeless and have no chance of ever being remotely attractive or getting women... lol

    Yeah it was like that in the past, why do you assume it would not be? Your probably just used to seeing hairplugs and plastic surgery on tv and aren’t sure why you guys don’t look like that.

    Hairlines are mostly genetics and stress. You can try finasteride/minoxidil to slow it down.

    Does more sleep actually help with hair loss? I've been averaging 6 hours for a few years now. Do I need more?

    Bros I need to start sleeping more, I don't want to lose all my hair. I still have hair holes so I think I can get it to grow back. I hope.

    Your premise is flawed unless you can demonstrate that zoomers are balding more than boomers.

    Balding is almost 100% genetic
