There are a lot of wrong ideas that people might hear about hair loss in men and women these days. Here are some of the wrong ideas that many people think are the causes of hair loss in humans.
If you wash, colour or use a hair drier on a regular basis can cause men and women to start losing their hair. This is a myth dying, washing or using a hair drier on a regular basis can harm your hair but they are not causes of major hair loss. Therefore it will not stop loss of hair if you refrain from styling your hair.
Another big misunderstanding about preventing hair loss is that if you pluck out a hair strand a lot more will regrow to replace it. Therefore it is a myth that you can fix your hair loss issues by plucking out a hair hoping that more will grow back in its place.
Another common misunderstanding is that if a person has 100 hairs fall out everyday it will result in hair loss. This is a myth because what a lot of people don't realise is that it is the norm to lose around 100 to 150 hairs every single day.
It is also a misunderstanding is that your mother passes on the gene that causes hair loss. This is a myth, It has been shown that the gene behind hair loss can come from either your mother or your father. So your mom is not to blame.
Combing rather than brushing your hair can result in hair loss is another common misunderstanding. This is due to the belief that a comb will snap your hair folicles resulting in long term damage to your hair. This is a myth, neither brushing or combing your hair could cause enough damage to your hair to result in significant hair loss.
It is also a misunderstanding that by not cutting off the split ends of your hair, you will start to lose your hair. This is a myth, it is not possible at all for split ends to be the reason for hair loss. Although it is a good idea that you do cut off the split ends of hair as they do affect the general health of your hair, therefore also changes the way your hair physically looks.
