Discover a few of the most common myths regarding female hair loss!

Hair loss doesn’t discriminate against race, gender, age, or socioeconomic status. It can happen to anyone, but many people are still surprised to discover that women are just as affected by hair loss as men. Discover a few of the most common myths regarding female hair loss.

Hair Loss is Permanent

Many instances of hair shedding are only temporary. For example, many women tend to lose hair after birth while their hormones adjust back to normal. Hair growth usually returns within several months post-pregnancy. If you are experiencing hair loss, schedule an appointment with your doctor. They can evaluate the situation and confirm if your hair loss is permanent or temporary.

Biotin Can Reverse Hair Loss

Many supplements, such as biotin, claim to cure hair loss or reverse the effects of hair loss. While biotin may play an essential role in maintaining healthy hair, it often isn’t enough to reverse full hair loss or shedding. Doctors recommend taking biotin of your hair is brittle or if you’re experiencing breakage problems.

Older Women Lose Their Hair

While it is common for older women to lose their hair, hair loss can start during a young woman’s teenage years. A variety of factors, from hormonal imbalances to hereditary illness, can cause young women and children to lose their hair or experience temporary hair shedding.  

Dyeing Causes Hair Loss

Coloring your hair won’t cause baldness, but excessive styling can have negative effects on one’s hair. Braiding, over-heating, and chemical straightening can lead to hair shedding and hair loss. Ensure that you’re taking care of your hair and scalp naturally.
