Hair Loss – The Stuff That Myths Are Made Of.

In recent years, hair loss has become less taboo. However, there are still many myths and falsehoods being spread as fact.

Here are some hair loss whoppers based on little more than idle gossip.

Does hair loss only happen as we get older?

If only this were true. Although hair loss increases with age, some of us can also suffer from it at an early age. Factors such as illness and genetics can play a part when this occurs, with the good news being that as soon as you spot the early signs, today's scientific and technology-based advances mean that help is at hand. Early intervention can mean an almost unnoticeable gap between when you first notice and when your usual hair is restored.

Does stress make hair fall out permanently?

We have all heard this one, and it is probably the tale about the person who woke up one morning to find bundles of hair on their pillow. There is a definite correlation between traumatic events and hair loss for certain people, but this is, in the vast majority of cases, a temporary phase which naturally reverses itself or can be encouraged to happen sooner with treatment.

Are bald men more likely to have high testosterone levels?

This classic myth became a 'thing' over time. Saying that your masculinity was the cause of thinning hair was a great cover story in the days before there were any solutions. In reality, hair follicle shrinkage is caused by dihydrotestosterone or DHT for short. Therefore, DHT is the issue, not testosterone!

Does wearing a hat affect my hair growth rate?

While we think of hats as something to keep our heads warm or as fashion accessories, some believe they can lead to hair loss. On the contrary, wearing a hat is the perfect solution for those bad hair days when it refuses to look as you want it to, and not something whose purpose is to strangle the living daylights out of the hair follicle.

Can using too much product in the hair eventually lead to hair shed?

Just look at the hairspray obsession of the 1980s and the hair gelling that went on in the 1990s, and history will tell you that this is not a fact. Indeed, products can be a massive bonus for those who have thinning hair. Since today's hair products are made with more natural ingredients, they can help the hair repair itself, just as nature intended.

Essential Takeaways

  • Anagen
    The Anagen phase is the period of growth. Hair follicles divide rapidly during this phase, resulting in new hair. Before hair follicles become dormant, hair grows from the roots for an average of 2-7 years. During this period, hair may grow anywhere from 18-30 inches.
  • Catagen
    The catagen phase begins when the anagen phase ends and lasts about ten days. Hair follicles shrink during this chapter, which results in slower hair growth. During its final days of growth, the hair also separates from the bottom of the hair follicles.
  • Telogen.
    Approximately 6% to 8% of hairs are in the telogen phase. Hair on the scalp will go through this phase in about 100 days, and hair on the eyebrow, eyelashes, arm and leg will take longer. Thus, the hair follicles are entirely resting, and the club hair is complete.
  • Shedding phase
    The exogen phase is essentially an extension or part of the telogen phase of hair growth. During the exogen phase, hair is shed from the scalp, often helped by washing and brushing. It is normal for exogen to lose 50 to 100 hairs per day.
