7. Hats and hair loss
There is a commonly known myth which say that wearing a hat can cause baldness. It is important to state that there is no relation between wearing a hat and hair fall. Hair loss or baldness can be caused by a number of reasons as we discussed in the last article. Mainly, baldness can be related to hereditary reasons and genetics. Moreover, it can caused by stress, depression and many other mental factors. Also, it can be caused by an unbalanced diet or a malady. However, there is no need to worry as hair loss is now commonly treated by minoxidil.
8. Towel drying your hair
Towel drying your hair by vigorously rubbing it against a towel is really harmful to your hair and can cause breakage. The right way to dry your hair is to squeeze it gently against a towel. Also, use a wide toothed comb to remove any excess water. This will help your hair stay healthy and prevent split ending.
9. Dandruff is caused by a dry scalp
This myth is a killer! Some people think that dandruff is the result of a dry scalp. This could not be more wrong! Dandruff is our body’s reaction to a yeast produced in our scalp when it is oily. So people think that dandruff is caused by their dry scalp and they lessen their hair washes which lead to more dandruff. Hair experts advise you to use an anti-dandruff shampoo in case of dandruff and to keep washing it regularly to rid your scalp of the dandruff.
