5 Common Myths About Hair Fall

Woman with hair fall problem

Hair is a precious asset as they define your personality and identity. Losing the strands may feel like losing the character and charisma. Individuals with thin hair tend to get worried by hearing too much fuss about their hair fall conditions. Most of the specialist advise not to believe every enigma and consult your nearest surgeon to better understand your condition.

Here are 5 common myths about hair fall.

1)    Women don’t lose hair

Most of us think that the women don’t lose hair. But the fact of the matter is the women may have some serious hair fall conditions. Like in men, women also suffer from their own female pattern baldness. Females might not get bald in most cases but the alopecia causes extreme thinning of hair from all around the scalp.

2)    You lose hair only at old age

It is a common thought that only old men and women tend to lose hair. However, there are many cases of hair loss in which people go bald in their 20’s. Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disorder that usually affects men and women at their earlier ages.

3)    Wearing hat cause hair loss

Wearing hats do not cause hair loss unless you wear it too tight on your head. The stress that is created by wearing a hat tightly can lead us to the hair fall but this is not a permanent hair fall condition.

4)    Regular Shampooing cause hair loss

Daily shampooing does not cause hair fall in every case because some individuals have dry scalp and some have an oily head. In order to stay away from hair fall use a shampoo that suits your hair type.

There exist some natural oils in the scalp of every human which help hair follicles to grow fresh strands properly. The shampoo is made to remove the bad oils and dust particles that are restricting hair follicles to produce new strands. While cleaning the head, most of the shampoos dry the essential oils alongside the bad ones from our scalp which results in drying of the scalp. Hence, the regular use of shampoo keeps the scalp dry and ultimately cause hair fall. However, this hair fall can be conquered by avoiding the use of dry shampoos for your hair.

5)    Baldness comes from the father’s side only

Pattern baldness is a genetic condition in both men and women which can be inherited from either parent and not only from father. If any of your parents have hereditary hair fall condition, you may also inherit the quality and experience hair loss.
