When you first note your hair thinning, you will have a lot of questions. What is causing my hair to fall out? What should I do to prevent hair loss? Many people turn to the internet for answers first. There's a good chance you'll find some reliable facts, but there's still a lot of misinformation. How can you say the difference between fact and fiction when it comes to hair loss? Look for blogs on reputable websites that have a track record of delivering transparent, useful content, rather than sites that are solely concerned with shock value. We're busting three more hair loss myths to help you find answers to your questions.
Hair loss affects more than 50 million men but it also affects more than 40 million women. In reality, by the age of 40, an estimated 40% of women will have significant hair loss. Although genetics is the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women, there are some significant variations in how men and women lose their hair. The hairline recedes at the temples and a bald spot forms at the crown in male pattern baldness. These two regions of hair loss eventually converge, leaving just a rim of hair on the sides and back of the head.
Hair loss in women does not usually follow a predictable pattern. They may see diffuse thinning, an expanding section, or bald patches on their scalp (especially near the temples).
This is an example of a half-truth. Stress from everyday life, such as being caught in traffic or arguing with your significant other, is unlikely to cause your hair to fall out. Hair loss may occur as a result of extreme stress induced by a traumatic event such as the death of a loved one or major surgery. In addition, telogen effluvium, trichotillomania, and alopecia areata are all stress-related disorders that have been connected to hair loss.
Minoxidil, a component of our Extreme Hair Therapy solution, is the only FDA-approved, clinically studied topical medication that has been shown to regrow hair and slow further hair loss. On the other hand, Laser hair treatment is a different way to regrow your hair. Low-level laser (light) therapy, also known as LLLT, is a cutting-edge technology that stimulates cellular activity in your follicles to slow hair loss and promote regrowth.
