Preventing Hair Loss
60% of men and 40% of women suffer from some stage of hair loss by the time they reach their 40s. 'Preventing hair loss' is one of the most common searches on the internet, and with figures like this, it comes as no real surprise. Much of the advice you read about balding can be misleading and rather contradicting. That's why we've conducted a list of the most common hair loss myths and facts.
Separating myths from facts: Ways to stop hair loss
X Brushing your hair too often can lead to hair loss
There have been no clinical studies to suggest that brushing or combing your hair can lead to balding.
✓ Eating green apples can prevent hair loss
Yes, eating a decent portion of green apples can indeed help prevent hair loss and promote healthy hair growth. Green apples are rich in minerals such as iron, zinc, copper, manganese and potassium which play a great role in the development and formation of hair strands
X Dying your hair regularly can lead to hair loss
Yes, certain chemicals can lead to hair falling out, but if you choose your product wisely and apply it correctly, you won't experience any hair fall. Just remember, male/female pattern baldness is genetic, therefore any hair you lose through dying your hair will grow back.
✓ A healthy lifestyle leads to stronger hair growth
This may seem a little obvious, but eating well and exercising regularly will have plenty of benefits for your hair. Living a healthy and active lifestyle can have huge benefits for your overall health, as well as the condition of your hair.
X Smoking causes hair loss
The whole 'smoking causes hair loss' thing has been making its way around the garden of myths for years, but for all you smokers out there you'll be pleased to know this: There hasn't yet been any scientific evidence that smoking causes any form of balding.
✓ Stress can lead to hair loss
One thing is for certain: stress is far more significant in the formation of hair loss than smoking. If you suffer from stress then we recommend doing something about it. Stress is a powerful emotion that can have effects on people's mental health as well as their appearance.
X Over washing your hair can lead to balding
Hair loss is genetic, therefore washing your hair every day will not cause male or female pattern baldness. If you suffer from some form of thinning hair, then hair energising shampoos such as Alpecin and Plantur can help.
✓ Vitamins can help stop hair loss and strengthen hair
Although there are plenty of 'hair loss cure' scams on the market, there are also excellent supplements available that can help prevent hair loss and promote healthy hair growth.
