I'll presume that you mean premature hair loss in men from about the age of 15 plus, rather than in children (in the case of children the answer would most likely be alopecia areata).

Anyway, premature hair loss in men, the causes:

Short answer: Crap genes.

Long answer: The sensitivity of your hair follicles on the top of your head to the hormone DHT, which leads in time to miniturisation of the hair follicle and eventually fibrosis. It has also been suggested that the potassium ion channels used in hair growth break down.

And, presuming you want to do something about it:

1) Propecia (reduces DHT levels)
2) Minoxidil (repairs potassium ion channels and lengthens the anagen phase of hair growth)
3) Use shampoo containing ketoconazole
4) Keep up to date with developments in Histogen, Follica, Trichoscience, Acell, TRX2 and Aderans.

IMO, and I'm no doctor , but If you are destined to lose your hair , you nwill lose it.
It may come early in life it may come late in life
There may be some medical condition with you that cause it to shed earlier
But you would be best to see a doctor, rather than come on here for advice from guys like me who are depressed about their hair loss

Obviously the first thing you need is the genetic predisposition to hair loss.
If there is hair loss in your immediate family (father, maternal grandfather)
that would be a strong predictor. Although I have seen members of my own family who had the odds stacked against them in that respect and at 50 and 60 show zero hair loss.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it but I have noticed a lot of my friends kids who are now in their 20s experiencing the same kind of loss that their relatives did not have until their late thirties or early forties.

I am not a doctor but it seems adolescents and teenagers both men and women seem to be going thru puberty earlier. Which may be a factor.
