In the modern world, people are more conscious about their physical appearance, their hair. The hair plays an indispensable role in making people look and feel good. They not just make them attractive but also maintain their self-esteem and confidence.
Hair fall and baldness can affect you both physically and mentally. Though there are various hair restoration treatments available in the present era, people resist due to a lot of myths regarding hair fall, its causes and treatment options.
Dr Kavish Chouhan, MD (AIIMS) a renowned dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon at DermaClinix, New Delhi has debunked various common myths here:
Myth: Tight hats make you go Bald!
Hats do not cause hair breakage or hair fall. The hair follicles get oxygen from the blood stream and not from the air. So, wearing hat does not cause hair fall unless you’re wearing a hat so tight that it hinder the circulation to hair follicles.
Myth: Shaving reduces hair fall!
Shaving does not prevent hair loss; the hair loss continues throughout. It is just that after shaving the head, the hair are very small in size and thus not easily noticeable when they fall off.
Myth: Certain Shampoos and Oil can make your hair grow faster!
Scientifically, oil or shampoo can not make your hair grow faster. Oil molecules are too big to pass through the skin surface, and thus does not give any nutrition to the hair roots. Shampoo and conditioners can aid to clean and hydrate the hair, but it’s better to go for dermatologist recommended products. – How to use Shampoo & Conditioner
Myth: Hair oils provide nutrition to the hair roots!
Hair oil molecules are too big to get into the skin and provide nutrition to the hair roots. Moreover, they attract dust due to stickiness and inhibit normal skin pores.
Myth: Transplanted hair do not grow!
The fact is that the transplanted hair are nothing but hair taken from a permanent donor zone, and thus, they will grow and stay permanent throughout your life. Besides this, the medical treatments are required to be continued to safeguard existing hair.
Myth: Advanced baldness can not be treated by Hair Transplantation!
