Everyone has an opinion about hair loss and baldness. What causes it? What cures it? How you can prevent it. People have believed various myths about hair loss and balding. From hats causing baldness to blame the father’s side of the family, people have ignored facts and believed in myths. These misconceptions and myths about why people lose their hair and how they can make it grow have left people confused and disheartened. We bring here the most common myths and truth about them about hair loss and baldness.



MYTH 1: Washing hair in cold water will prevent baldness.

TRUTH:Washing your using cold could increase blood circulation, but it doesn’t prevent baldness. However, there are some advantages to washing hair in cold water, such as cuticle tightening and frizz prevention after washing your hair with cold water may increase blood.

There is no direct relation between washing your hair in cold water and baldness prevention.

MYTH 2: Plucking one grey hair will result in multiple grey hairs budding from your scalp.

TRUTH:The reason behind grey colored hair is melanin producing hair follicles. The hair turns to white or grey when these cells stop producing pigment. This does not mean that plucking a grey hair result in more grey hair.

MYTH 3: Only men are susceptible to hair balding.

TRUTH:It’s an outmoded view that hair loss only affects men, whereas women too are equally affected by hair loss and other hair problems as faced by men. The only difference lies in pattern and symptoms.

Hair loss or Hair balding does not differentiate on the basis of gender. Hormonal changes or thyroid problems are the main factors that cause hair loss in women. It can also be a result of the daily worries of balancing work and career. Women tend to eat less or skip a meal due to their hectic schedules, which also eventually lead to hair balding.

MYTH 4: Hat and caps contribute towards hair balding.

TRUTH:This is another popular myth that is wearing hats and cause hair loss. But the logic behind it is that sweat and heat make you lose hair, or the cap prevents the hair from breathing. You should know that hair gets oxygen from the hair follicles and does not cause any damage. But a dirty and grubby cap can lead to hair infection and hair loss.

MYTH 5: Hair balding is linked to old age.

TRUTH: It is common for older people with bald heads, but it doesn’t mean that younger people are immune to baldness or hair loss. In fact, hair balding can start in your teens, and it’s most commonly seen in 20-30-year-olds. Also, if you are facing baldness in such a young age, it doesn’t mean that you are old; it just means that some of the other factors of baldness are affecting you adversely and you need to find it and get a hair restoration treatment as soon as possible.

MYTH 6:Hair gels and hair sprays cause hair loss.

TRUTH: Hair gel and hair sprays don’t have any adverse effects on your hair, especially hair loss. There is no association between hair loss and most hair care products. The main culprits are the chemicals found in some hair products. Some chemicals are so harmful that they also make the hair restoration prodcedures tricky.

MYTH 7:Daily or frequent shampooing causes hair loss.

TRUTH:This is one of the most popular beliefs that if you frequently wash your hair using shampoo; the hair loss will increase automatically. However, most people don’t know that there are higher chances that hair fall is greater if you shampoo less often. Dirt and dandruff start building up if you don’t wash your hair often with shampoo and this, in turn, leads to greater hair loss and hair regrowth becomes more difficult. If you have an intense hair fall, then you can change your shampoo or use a milder one but do not refrain from washing your hair whenever needed.


1. Using a conditioner causes hair fall.

2. Hair balding is due to overexposure to the sun

3. Baldness is inherited from your father’s side.

4. Dandruff causes hair loss.

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.

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.
