What is hair loss? 

Hair loss is medically known as alopecia also known as baldness. Many factors lead to hair loss. We know different types of hair loss: 

1) The hair is lost diffusely over the whole scalp
2) Baldness is one spot
3) Baldness in more than one spot
4) Bald spot on the beard
5) There is no hair on the scalp
6) All body hair is lost

Popular myths about hair loss

1. Pattern baldness comes from the mother’s side.

Researches show that there is no reason to blame our parents for pattern baldness. In fact, there is no such thing as a hair loss gene.

2. Pattern baldness affects only men.

This is not true. Baldness is as common in women as in men. The difference between genders and the disease is that it affects men and women in different ways. For example, it is proved that usually, men tend to start losing their hair in The 30s and 40s while women begin to lose hair in the 40s or 50s.

3. Pattern baldness is a result of poor blood flow.

In fact, the blood supply is very good in the balding spots. Exactly this condition allows hair transplant operations.

4. Do some hairstyles cause hair loss?

The answer to this question is positive. There are treatments like tight ponytails, plaits, or corn-rows which can stimulate hair loss. Inappropriate care for our hair risks much too. We can not only harm our hair but may also lose it.

5. Brushing many times prevents hair loss

As we said above that good circulation of blood is not a sign of healthy hair. There are cases in which bald spots on the scalp have good blood flow and the baldness is psychological, physical, or the result of an accident.

6. Shampooing makes our hair fall out.

Many people get frightened that they lose their hair unusually fast when they take a shower.  The truth is that shampooing with a proper product daily benefits hair and scalp. 

7. Protein-containing conditioners and shampoos prevents hair from loss.

The external treatment of the hair with hair product which contains protein is useful for temporarily filling in the defects on the surface of the hair shaft. This kind of products makes our hair smoother and thicker but they don’t make it stronger.

8. Dyes, perms, and hairsprays worsen hair loss.

Generally speaking when you use these methods for glamorization, you want to either flaunt your beautiful hair or hide your damaged hair. By no means hair dyes, perms or hairspray can harm your hair or even make her weaker and thinner.

9. My father doesn’t have hair baldness. Why should I have?

Hair baldness sometimes involves a combination of genes. This means that in some cases even when the father hasn’t hair baldness this is not relevant to his child. 

10. Shaving your head will cause hair to grow back thicker.

11. Dandruff causes permanent hair loss.

12. Hair loss does not occur in the late teens.
