5 Myths & facts about hair loss

5 Myths & facts about hair loss

What are the ridiculous things you have heard about Hair Loss? Have you heard that you shouldn't wash your hair in the shower?

It can be challenging to distinguish fact from fiction regarding hair loss because there are so many urban legends and flat-out lies! 

We, today, are the Mythbusters - sharing the facts you should know about Hair Loss.

1. Your hair will grow faster if you cut it frequently.

BUSTED: NO! It's a myth.

Hair growth occurs at the roots, not at the ends, and hair growth is not affected by hair length. A regular hair trim may not affect how quickly or how much your hair grows, but removing split ends, which may frequently make your hair look thin or sparse at the bottom, undoubtedly improves the appearance of your hair overall.

2. We lose more hair when it is greasy.

BUSTED: NO! It's a myth.

Hair loss occurs in both greasy and dry hair/scalp. When your scalp loses its balance (which is producing the right amount of water and oil), hair loss can be one of the signals of an unhealthy scalp, regardless of your hair and scalp type.

Our recommendation: Most scalp problems are caused by choosing the wrong shampoo. Be sure to pick the right shampoo for your scalp type, and always opt for mild, natural products.

3. Stress and anxiety can lead to hair loss.

FACT: Yes, it’s true!

When you get stressed, mood swings can fluctuate hormones. An imbalanced hormone can push hair follicles into a “resting” phase, dropping more quickly than usual. However, hair loss from stress doesn’t have to be permanent. 

Regular sleep, exercise and practising a good diet can help relieve stress effectively.

4. You will lose more hair if you wash your hair every day.

BUSTED: NO! It's a myth.

The common misconception people always have about washing your hair every day is 'over shampooing'. In fact, keeping your scalp clean and fresh daily can actually help reduce hair loss. However, using the wrong/unsuitable shampoo for your scalp will lead to further hair loss in the long term.

In short, washing your hair daily does not affect hair loss unless you use the wrong shampoo. Our recommendation: Go for mild and silicone-free shampoo!

5. Your hair will fall out more if you brush it when wet.

BUSTED: NO! It's a myth.

Brushing your hair when it's wet doesn't lead to hair fall. It only depends on how you wash your hair. Violent brushing of your hair to detangle knots will pressure your hair follicles and cause unnatural hair fall.

Our recommendation: Apply a hair mask in the shower and use your finger to detangle any knots gently.

The Takeaway

It's normal to shed 50-100 hairs every day - but if you're losing more hair than usual, early hair loss treatment in Malaysia is needed to avoid permanent hair loss! However, it's also essential to identify the accuracy of information about hair loss. For any unexplained hair loss, it is best to consult a healthcare provider who can identify the underlying cause and provide the most appropriate course of action.
