Men and women have been seeking ways to fight hair loss ever since the beginning of human civilization. Over time, a great deal of inaccurate information has come to be accepted as fact—old wives’ tales and wishful thinking have made it difficult to determine the truth.
Even in the 25 years that Invisions of Connecticut has been providing men and women with the most effective non-surgical hair loss treatments, we have spent a great deal of time and energy correcting various misconceptions (we’re happy to do so!).
Giving access to the most accurate and up-to-date information is one of the most effective ways to ensure that hair loss treatments progress smoothly, so we’ve compiled information containing real facts behind the many myths surrounding hair growth, hair loss, and hair restoration.
Hair Grows Faster After Frequent Trimming & Hats Cause Hair Thinning
All body and scalp hair grows from follicles, cylindrical segments of the epidermis underneath the skin. Once a person’s hair shaft has grown to the point that it reaches the scalp surface it is functionally dead, despite the fact that the hair follicle itself is still alive and active. This is why cutting, covering, or even chemically coloring your hair on the surface will have virtually no effect on your hair growth.
That being said, some damaging hair care practices can lead to breakage or split-ends that can ultimately make the hair appear thinner. Pony-tails, braids, man-buns and other tight hairstyles can pull out hair strands from their roots and damage the follicle, however, these conditions are generally temporary and easily corrected by simply refraining from the behavior that is causing the damage.
Only Men Are Affected By Genetic Pattern Hair Loss
This may come as a surprise: many of the most common forms of hair loss occur equally in both men and women, with some forms affecting women even more frequently. The progression of women’s hair loss is typically less visually obvious than that experienced by men, which is one of the many reasons why the subject has been given much less attention by the media throughout the years. This is one of the many reasons why Invisions of Connecticut has devoted resources to educating the public and addressing the issues associated with women’s hair loss.
