Hair Loss Myths

There are many theories about why people experience hair loss. Because hair loss occurs for such a variety of reasons, it can be difficult to determine the specific cause. However, there are a few common theories that have been proven to be hair loss myths.

    • Hair loss only happens to men. It is true that men are more likely to experience complete baldness. But women are just as likely to experience smaller effects of hair loss as men. In fact, forty percent of women have visible hair loss by the time they are forty. Sorry ladies, but hair loss can affect you too.
    • Certain hairstyles can cause hair loss. Other hair loss myths involve the way you wear your hair. Some believe wearing your hair in tight pony tails, wearing hats frequently or using pins and clips cause hair loss. Although these hairstyles might cause a few hair strands to be pulled out, there is no evidence that any specific hairstyle causes an increase in hair loss. Of course, if you are already experiencing signs of hair loss, certain hairstyles might encourage the hair strands to fall out. By repeatedly pulling out the same strand of hair, you might be causing Traction Alopecia which will eventually prevent that specific strand from growing back. The chances of this happening due to a specific hairstyle is very rare though.
    • Biotin is the cure for hair loss. Biotin tablets always claim to strengthen your hair and nails, but they are not a cure for hair loss. It’s more useful to help with hair breakage problems and not hair loss problems. Biotin won’t do much to help hair loss caused by genetics or hormone problems.
    • Shampooing too often causes hair loss. It’s common for people to see hair loss while they shampoo their hair in the shower, but this hair loss isn’t necessarily from the shampoo itself. It’s normal for individuals to lose hairs throughout the day, especially when washing it. There’s no scientific evidence proving that shampooing leads to hair loss, unless you have a specific allergy to a shampoo. Shampooing can actually help encourage hair growth by keeping the scalp clean and healthy.

Although there are a variety of reasons for hair loss, the most common cause is simply genetics and hormones. To cure ongoing hair loss, talk with an expert at Hair Regenomics. The team at HairRegen utilizes stem cell therapy to encourage the regrowth of hair strands on the scalp. This provides a solution for hair loss due to Androgenic Alopecia and Telogen Effluvium.
