Debunking Myths About Thinning Hair

Debunking Myths About Thinning Hair

 

We’ve all experienced some form of hair thinning or loss. In fact, most people shed around 50-100 hairs per day*. Each hair follicle goes through a cycle that includes a growth stage and a rest stage before the hair falls out.

 

There are many common myths about when hair loss happens, why it happens, and who struggles with the condition, making it hard to separate fact from fiction.

 

Read on as we debunk common myths and share ways to achieve healthier hair.

 

Myth #1: Thinning hair is only genetic.

 

Fact: While genetics play a significant role, they aren't the only factor. Thinning hair can result from stress, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes, medication, or even certain hairstyles that put tension on the scalp. Environmental factors and lifestyle choices can also influence hair health.

 

Myth #2: Cutting hair makes it grow faster.

 

Fact: Trimming hair can give the illusion of faster growth because it removes brittle split ends, which if left will make your hair appear weak and thin as it grows. Hair grows from the root of a follicle deep within the scalp, which is the part responsible for growth and premature loss. This root consists of cells and keratin, a protein essential for healthy hair growth.  

 

Myth #3: Hair loss is permanent.

 

Fact: While some forms of hair loss, like male pattern baldness, can be permanent, not all hair loss is irreversible. For instance, hair loss caused by stress or hormonal changes can be temporary and reversible with proper care.

 

Myth #4: Brushing hair when it’s wet will cause more hair loss.

 

Fact: Hair doesn’t fall out more if brushed when wet. Hair is more elastic when it’s wet, and it also has a greater tendency to split, which means that you feel as though more is falling out, whereas it’s just broken. If your hair is in the process of falling out, brushing gathers up hair that is about to shed anyway: it doesn’t cause hair loss.

 

Myth #5: Only men suffer from hair thinning and loss.

 

Fact: While hair loss is slightly less common in women than men, both can and do suffer from the condition. The most common types and causes of hair loss may differ between men and women, with telltale signs like a receding hairline being more typical with men and women more likely to experience more evenly spread thinning. 

 

 

Now you know what can trigger hair loss and thinning, here's how to improve it:

 

In addition to a balanced diet, taking vitamins or supplements for hair growth and avoiding excessive stress, proper hair care plays a big role in the health of your hair.
