Hair Loss Myths
A myriad of myths surround hair loss and continue to persist despite modern scientific proof. It’s important to know that as people age they grow less hair and it tends to be finer in texture and one of the causes is reduced collagen production.
Hair loss is equally common in women and men, but women are more likely to invest in a wig to cover the condition and are more creative at hiding hair loss. Men tend to lose hair on the top and front of the head and if you’re a woman your hair loss will tend to be distributed more evenly throughout the scalp.
Hair loss can occur from multiple reasons, but the primary cause is genetics. While hair loss isn’t actually inherited, it does tend to follow patterns within families.
Stress and poor diet can contribute to hair loss and exacerbate it. Tight hairstyles can also pull hair out by the roots and lead to traction alopecia. In a culture where thick locks are often associated with physical attractiveness and sexuality, hair loss can be particularly devastating.
No matter what the cause, hair loss results in a loss of self-esteem and can lead to anxiety and depression. It also impacts your lifestyle. You may begin to avoid social events, withdraw from activities in which your hair loss may become known, and it can adversely affect your health.
