When it comes to hair loss and as to what causes it, we come across so many reasons, but are all of them facts? No, not at all! Many of them are myths and have no scientific basis, yet we believe them because we have been hearing about them over the years.

Here are a few myths listed which all of us need to shun & I am sure you may be astonished to see a few of them listed here!

Myth 1. Shampooing everyday causes hair thinning:

The shampooing regimen you follow is specific to the needs of your hair & scalp, therefore, how many times you shampoo is not relevant in hair loss or gain.

If your scalp turns oily quickly, you can shampoo daily & it will not let your strands fall rather a clean scalp will ensure healthy follicles!

Myth 2. Balding & thinning has to happen as you age:

This one is embedded deep in us as we relate hair thinning & balding to old age. A completely misleading fact this is! In fact, if you have genetic baldness it may hit you as early as in your 20s & if you take good care of your health, you may have head full of hair in your 80s too!

Myth 3. Blame your mother for your inherited hair loss:

A baseless allegation on mother & maternal side for your balding & hair loss. In reality, genetically inherited balding can come from the genes of either side of the parents, so stop accusing your mother!

Myth 4. Use of Wigs, Toupees & hats lead to balding:

This one is another weird reason propagated for hair loss which says covering your head most of the time leads to suffocating the hair & make them shed. It is true that sunlight provides the essential vitamin D dose to the strands but lack of direct sunlight does not lead to hair loss in great numbers!

Myth 5. All hair products damage hair & result in hair loss:

An unwanted advice that is always thrown on a hair loss sufferer is to abstain from all kinds of hair products.

You need to know the difference between the good & the bad; those products which are harsh & have chemicals in them, should be avoided.

Myth 6. Coloring agents should be a ‘no-no’ if you want to save your strands:

Coloring is the latest trend & the numerous options are an irresistible lure to try out different shades. Many a times, you will hear that coloring damages hair & aggravates hair loss. Be aware that only those colors which have ammonia in them are harmful for the hair. So, go ahead check the label & then flaunt your style!

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.

Hi all, I had a problem with my hair, and I visited Advanced Hair Studio, Hyderabad. Here, the experts are amazing. My low hair density problem was explained very nicely, and some solutions were suggested. The solutions were fantastic. If you have any such issues, I recommend that you come and make an appointment. There was a lot of care and attention displayed by their staff in handling my hair fall issue. Similarly, the receptionists are both friendly and courteous, and the atmosphere is clean and fresh. This clinic deserves 5 stars.
