Myths And Truths About Hair Loss

Myths And Truths About Hair Loss


Thinning hair affects both men and women. However, what does it mean and is there a natural hair loss prevention solution that actually works? Well, when it comes to the issue of hiding a bald spot or receding hairline, there is a lot of controversies. So, instead of getting political about it, let’s just cut our way through some of the myths and truths about hair loss.


1 – Hair Plugs Look Ugly



This is actually a myth. Sure, if you are getting your hair plugs in a back alley somewhere or through an online auction, expect some sub-standard stuff. However, professionals properly trained in hair restoration procedures can give you a lot of hair that wasn’t there and it will look natural.



2 – Your Mom Is To Blame For Your Baldness

Here is another myth. Sure, it’s all related to genetics but the invisible ‘hair loss’ gene does not come from just your mother’s side of the family. When it comes to hair loss prevention, men tend to point their fingers at a trait they picked up from their mother’s side. The truth is, there is no way of determining this.



3 – Pulling Out Grey Hairs Encourages More To Appear

This is a common female hair loss prevention trick. Plucking and tweezing out that grey hair peeking out from your head is not going to be replaced by a number of new ones if you pull it out. This is purely myth. Pluck ‘em if you’ve got ‘em, or just let them be.




4 – You Brought This On Yourself

It’s not uncommon to see in a hair loss prevention guide a notation that states that you abused your hair enough over your lifetime that there’s no wonder it’s falling out. You know, the heat from blow dryers, the chemicals from coloring and dying plus all that excessive teasing and whatnot. Well, it’s a fact. Your hair can only take so much and will eventually leave you to get away from the abuse.




5 – Your Stress Level Is Making You Bald

Who hasn’t seen this gem in a list of hair loss prevention tips? Your lifestyle, your work environment, your personal relations. They all have been contributing to your stress level and instead of causing your head to burst, it’s killing off your hair. One word: false!



6 – Baseball Caps Are To Blame


As a form of hair loss prevention women who are sports fans are often encouraged to not wear baseball caps or any head wear that has to be tight fitting in order to remain in place. The theory is that blood flow to hair is reduced and dead hair results. Again, this one strikes out as it is not true.



7 – Anti-Balding Solutions Work

As a form of hair loss treatment women and men do have a lot of options if you look online or on the shelves of your local drugstore or pharmacy. But do any of them actually work or is it all a scam? As it turns out, Propecia, Pronexa, Minoxidil (or Rogaine) do help a percentage of those who use it. The ones who claim it’s all bunk are probably in the percentage of users who had little or no results.

      Hi Roger, this information who would like to prevent hair damage and baldness. There are not to many options for completely bald people, except surgical hair transplantation 🙁
      However,for those who has tendency to baldness, there are a lot of hope to stop process and regrow hair if the hair follicles are still alive.

    Thanks for debunking some myths. Since my mom went bald a few years ago, we have done quite some research about hair loss, and have concluded some of these things too!

    Hair loss and thinning is definitely different for everyone. Some due to genetics, others due to health issues, others due to stress, but you can’t generalize. And there are so many people that believe one or the other of these myths.

    Thanks for sharing,

      Hey, Oscar, Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to validate my research!

    I am glad you debunked some of these myths. I cannot remember growing up as a child how many times my grandparents would say you are worrying me to death and giving me grey hair. I have never found any proof that stress leads to grey hair.

    Additionally, the myth about pulling out grey hair will lead to more coming back. I still hear that a lot today and it is so untrue.

    I really enjoyed this article and thanks for sharing.
