Facts And Myths About Hair Loss

Hair Loss Myths

When it comes to losing hair, there are a ton of hair loss myths out there. So many people have a different conspiracy about what is and isn't good for your hair.

It is important to know fact from fiction. Fact will bring you closer to understanding how you can keep your hair healthy; fiction will cause you to try things that simply don't work.

Does cutting your hair make it thicker? Does laser hair therapy really work? Is hair loss hereditary? Does it matter how much you wash your hair?

Read on to learn about hair loss myths and facts.

1. Laser Hair Therapy Reverses Hair Loss

If, over the years, your hair seems to have lost some of its luster, say no more. Plenty of online studies prove that laser hair therapy is effective at getting your locks back in awesome shape. When engineered with advanced technology and science, a laser hair therapy device such as the Theradome helmet can:

  • Boost hair growth
  • Reverse hair miniaturization
  • Increase the density and fullness of hair
  • Increase hair count
  • Minimize shedding
  • Optimize hair growth cycle
  • Improve overall hair quality, condition, and manageability

2. Cutting Your Hair Will Make It Thicker

While regularly trimming your locks is essential to maintain their bounce and shine and avoid split ends, cutting your hair won’t technically increase your hair count. You might think you have thicker hair because creating short layers is a great way to give your hair the appearance that it’s fuller.

So, if you’re trying to conceal thinning hair, talk to your hairdresser about trying out a layered inverted bob next time you step into the salon.

3. If Your Relatives Are Losing Hair, So Will You

Genes often play a huge role when it comes to appearance and health. So, if your mother still sports va-va-voom locks, then chances are you’ll be blessed with the same luck.

Unfortunately, the same can be said for the opposite. Hair loss is technically a medical condition, so if your family's thinning hair is a pattern, then taking precautionary measures might be wise! Make sure your health is always at its peak, and start integrating laser hair therapy with the Theradome into your weekly hair care routine.

4. Washing Your Hair Too Much Causes Hair Loss

Yes, we’ve all seen the shower drain and wondered if it was clogged because our hair was falling out. The answer is no. Naturally, it’s always best to use hair products free of chemicals, but shampooing frequently doesn’t make your hair fall out. The hairs you see in the drain are most likely the result of normal shedding.

Hair loss in shower? Find out if you should be concerned.

If your tresses are beginning to noticeably thin out, remember that using anti-dandruff and anti-fungal shampoo can decrease scalp inflammation and help thicken your locks to get their glamor back.

5. Eating Healthy Can Prevent Hair Loss

This is a no-brainer, but if you don’t eat healthily, guess what – you won’t be healthy. Think of your hair as a thermometer for your overall health. Your tresses are literally on the chopping block if your body isn’t functioning at its best. Make sure your diet has plenty of fatty acids, protein, antioxidants, biotin, selenium, iron, and zinc.

Additionally, research has shown that a Body Mass Index (BMI) that’s either too low or too high can also impact your health (and, in consequence, the quality of your locks). Exercise has plenty of health benefits, and now you can add “gorgeous hair!” at the top of the list.

Separate Fact from Fiction

Always remember what’s true and what’s not when it comes to hair loss myths: use the Theradome LH80 PRO to reverse and prevent hair loss. Eatwell, and you’ll soon be on your way to a beautiful, luxurious head of hair.
