MYTHS AND FACTS ABOUT HAIR LOSS
MYTH – Daily use of blow dryers will cause thinning hair.
FACT – Too much heat from the blow dryer can dry your hair and cause brittleness and breakage. It will not, however, make your hair thinner. Use common sense and a lower setting when using heating elements on hair.
MYTH – If my dad is bald, I will be bald
FACT – Though paternal influence plays a genetic part in one’s hair future, actual hereditary patterns are from both parents. If both mum and dad are balding, chances are so will you. But if only dad has thin hair, and mum has thick hair, your chances are greater for less hair loss.
MYTH – You should brush your hair at least 100 strokes every day to stimulate hair growth.
FACT – Too much brushing can actually damage your hair.
MYTH – Tight caps and hats will make you bald.
FACT – This is just another myth. Hats will not and cannot shrink hair follicles.
MYTH – Cutting Your Hair Will Make It Grow Thicker
FACT – Because your hair is thicker at the base, cutting your hair may give it an appearance of being thicker. But after the hair’s normal life span, new hair grows at the same original diameter of your pre-cut hair.
