Hair might seem like a simple thing, but it can play a huge role in appearance and acceptance, especially in Western culture. Whether you feel like people notice your thinning or balding hair, what really matters most is how you feel about yourself.
People often feel like the only solutions for hair loss are expensive and have little chance of effectiveness. But thanks to recent developments and more natural hair loss treatments, many have found solutions to their hair loss problems.
1. Hair loss isn’t the same for everyone
It’s important to remember that when it comes to hair loss and its treatments, there’s a whole lot of misinformation out there. In fact, here are some common myths about hair loss that are either false or only partially correct:
- You can prevent hair loss on your own
- Wearing tight hats causes hair loss
- You can predict hair loss by looking at your mother’s father or mother’s side
- There’s no real cure for baldness
- Hair transplants are costly and ineffective
Tight hats don’t cause hair loss. Male pattern baldness is caused by a host of factors, including genetics from both sides of the family. Hormone levels and lifestyle also play a role in hair loss and these factors vary from person to person.
As for women, several factors can cause hair loss, including but not limited to pregnancy, thyroid conditions, stress, menopause and more. Because hair loss is not the same for everyone, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. For this reason, your best chance is to consult a medical professional.
