Myths about Hair Loss and Types of Baldness Revealed

First, let's bust a few myths regarding hair loss. Once and for all, you do not lose it due to shampooing and towel drying your hair. Most people associate the issue with these activities, but that is only because they see the hair falling out during those activities. So do not worry, ordinary treatment of your hair will not cause it to fall out.

Then there is the issue of wearing ponytails or braiding. The truth is, wearing a tight ponytail when you can feel your eyes being pulled back is generally something to steer off from. Wearing your hair in a tight ponytail may cause your hair to fall out over time. But generally speaking, normal ponytails are safe for your hair.

When the cause of hair loss is genetic sensitivity to hormones in the skin, women and men go bald in different places. While men lose their hair in the front and at the sides of the scalp, women lose it centrally. Sadly, the process can only be stopped – there is no treatment for making your hair grow back again. Medication like finasteride or minoxidil work well in stopping hair loss. Not much can be done besides that.
