Myth9: Hair Gel, Hairspray and Hair Styling Tools are the main Reason for Hair Loss
Fact: Don’t Sacrifice Your Hair Styling Desires as products like Hair Gel, Hairspray, Straightener, Curling Wands and Blow Dry etc won’t make you go bald. “Hair Styling Products don’t cause Balding but it is over-usage of such products that can harm the hair quality, making hair brittle and rough hence more prone to hair loss due to breakage.
Doctor’s Advice: Use good quality products & try to use a Heat Protectant prior to using products like Straightener, Curling Wands and Blow Dry. Also limit your usage to once a week only.
Myth10: Smoking Cigarettes has NO Effect on Hair Loss
Fact: Lets simply face it; Smoking Cigarettes is medically BAD for your health, including your hair. In fact, recent studies have found quite sufficient evidences to prove that there is imperative link between hair loss and smoking.
Doctor’s Advice: Quit Smoking Period!
Myth11: Standing on Your Head will make Your Hair Grow
Fact: Yes, it may sound very funny but this actually is one of the most common heard myths. As per Dr. Kuldeep Singh, “Hair Loss is not only a Blood Flow issue, but instead can occur due to other vital factors like genetics and age. So even if increased blood flow can help your hair growth, you won’t be able to stay in that particular position for long enough to have a noticeable effect on your hair follicles.”
Doctor’s Advice: Consider “Sheersha Asana” as an exercise & not as a Hair Treatment Session.
