12 Myths of Hair Growth and Loss You Must Avoid!

Do you believe in the old wives’ tales about hair growth and hair loss? Well, it is time that all such myths are busted, and you be brought to the bright light of truth.

Read about these 12 myths, and you will know better about your tresses!

#Myth1- Stress causes hair loss

Unless you are under chronic stress, it has no relation with your hair loss. It is only some severely stressful situation that can cause thinning or loss of hair, known as telogen effluvium.

#Myth2- If you wear hats, you will lose more hair!

That is again a myth. Hair follicles get their share of oxygen from the blood and they do not need to breathe on the exterior. So, you can keep wearing your hat 24×7; it will cause no harm to your hair.
However, wearing tight hats that exert excessive pressure or cause high friction with the hair follicles can lead to hair loss.

#Myth3- Cutting hair frequently will promote hair growth

Hair is non-viable tissue, and there is no way that you can stop or promote hair growth by cutting it. What haircuts basically do is make your hair look thicker and voluminous due to the removal of split ends.

#Myth5- Wash hair with cold water and you will never go bald!
Do you still live with the notion that washing hair with cold water will prevent baldness? Really?
