Facts and Myths about Hair Loss

Everyone has a favorite myth about hair care and generally do not want the truth we break our myths! This article discusses the most popular myths about hair loss.

Wash your hair causes excessive hair loss:
FALSE: Frequency of washing does not damage your hair. Wash your hair as often as you like, although it is recommended to do it three times a week. Use the shampoo suitable for your hair type and texture to give it shine, body and moisturize.

More shampoo = cleaner hair:
FALSE: Do not waste your shampoo! A portion of shampoo, the size of a dime is usually enough for long hair.

Conditioner helps repair split ends:
FALSE: No conditioner can "repair" damaged hair. What it can do is soften the hair cuticle and make it appear to be in better condition. A good conditioner can also prevent the damage occurring in the first place.

The hair dryer helps hair loss:
FALSE: The dryer can damage, burn or dry hair, which can cause some hair loss, but the hair will grow back immediately. It produces a permanent hair loss.

Sleeping with wet hair can bring scalp fungus:
FALSE: The fungi-related diseases are not caused by sleeping with wet hair. These occur by infections and occur mostly in children who have lower defenses and are more susceptible to skin infections.

MYTH: If you brush your hair a lot can damage the hair cuticle. NOT recommended! Actually, your hair reacts better to a comb than a brush.

Sharing combs and brushes can spread scalp diseases:
TRUE: Lice and other parasites can be transported from the scalp through the sharing of combs, brushes and other hair care tools.

The dye can cause hair loss:
FALSE: Most hair coloring products contain chemicals that can damage the hair if not used correctly, but not the cause of hair loss.

The long sun exposure favors hair loss:
FALSE: Your hair acts as a shield against the sun. Hair loss occurs in the follicle, which is in a deeper layer of skin is the dermis. For that the sun would penetrate the depth to do harm.

Stress causes hair loss:
TRUE: Severe stress (e.g., surgery, childbirth or a death in the family) can close the hair production, causing temporary hair loss (alopecia aerate).

Smoking causes gray hair:
