Myth8: A sign of Genetic Progressive/Permanent Baldness is seeing large amounts of Hair Falling out

Fact: This is a Myth. The fact is that going bald is not due to huge amount of hair falling out but due to normal thick hair being replaced by thinner & finer hairs. This process is medically termed as “Miniaturization”.

Doctor’s Advice: If large patches of hair start suddenly falling out, it could be Alopecia Areata and it is time to see your dermatologist.


Myth9: Hair Gel, Hairspray and Hair Styling Tools are the main Reason for Hair Loss
