What contemporary young people care most about is the hair on the head, except for the money in the wallet. Every morning when I get up and look at the hair all over the floor, and then at the hairline that moves up slightly, no post-90s generation is not worried.
Wouldn't it be "bald young"? Is it because it is often hot that it falls so badly? Will short hair fall a little less?
Don't worry, don't worry, let's talk to you today about the 9 truths about hair loss that young people worry about the most.
I lose a lot of hair every day. Isn’t it going to be bald?
The truth: daily hair loss is a normal phenomenon, not necessarily hair loss.
Just like the cells in the body, our hair also needs to alternate between the old and the new. When the hair reaches a certain age, it will fall off by itself, and new hair will grow back.
Usually, the hair we lose is mostly the hair that "deserves to retire". They will fall off naturally or with the action of combing and washing hair. For most people, it is normal to lose 50 to 150 hairs a day.
If you still feel uneasy, there is a "hair pulling test" that can help you judge: grab a strand of hair (about 50-60 hairs) near the scalp and pull it toward the end of the hair. If the amount of hair pulled does not exceed 1/ 10 (about 5-6), it is unlikely to be hair loss.
In daily life, if you find that 5 or 6 hairs can be pulled down after pulling a bunch of hair several times, it may be a hair loss problem, so go to the hospital and see! Finding the cause of hair loss as early as possible is the key.
I heard that shampoo can irritate the scalp and cause hair loss?
Truth: Shampoo cleans the scalp and does not cause hair loss.
Shampoo is originally used to cleanse the scalp. In addition to ordinary cleansing functions, there are some shampoo products that can control oil, dandruff, and even anti-inflammatory, and are used to improve hair loss caused by scalp inflammation.
As long as it is a regular brand shampoo, it can touch the scalp, and the irritation to the scalp is almost negligible. Except for some people who are more sensitive to certain cosmetic ingredients (such as preservatives, fragrances, etc.), most people are not prone to scalp allergies due to contact with shampoo.
Does frequent perm and dyed hair aggravate hair loss?
The truth: Perm dyeing only affects the hair shaft of the hair and will not cause hair loss.
The essence of hair loss is the problem of the hair follicles at the root of the hair, and perm dyeing is the treatment of the hair shaft of the hair. It has no direct effect on the hair follicles and will not cause hair loss.
But it should be noted that perm dyeing may damage the hair and make it easy to break. Frequent use of hair irons and chemical leavening agents may increase the brittleness of the hair and cause hair breakage; the ammonia and hydrogen peroxide in some hair dyes can damage the protein skeleton of the hair and may also cause hair breakage.
But as long as the hair follicles are healthy, the broken hair will continue to grow. If you frequently dye your hair with perm, you need to pay more attention to it and treat your hair gently.
After giving birth, the baby's hair is getting less and less, will it become bald?
Truth: Postpartum hair loss is a normal physiological phenomenon, and it will return to normal after a period of time.
Postpartum hair loss is a normal physiological phenomenon caused by changes in hormone levels in the body. The changes in hormones make the hair growth cycle change accordingly, so that more hairs are going to "retire" and fall out. As a result, many mothers will experience obvious hair loss and thinning of the hair within 1 to 5 months after delivery.
But this kind of hair loss is not permanent, and usually stops within 15 months after delivery. After the hormone levels return to normal, as new hair continues to grow, hair volume will gradually increase.
If the hair volume of 15 months after childbirth is still significantly different from that before childbirth, and the hair on the top of the head is sparse and soft, you need to pay attention to it. Go to the hospital to check if there are other reasons for hair loss.
Can cutting short hair reduce hair loss?
The truth: The amount of hair loss is not directly related to the length of the hair. Short hair will not make the hair fall less.
The hair that should go is still going, and it has nothing to do with the length of the hair. It may be an illusion that there is less hair loss after cutting short hair than long hair, mainly because the fall of short hair is less noticeable.
When the hair is long, the fallen hair is easy to get stuck in the middle of the hair, and it will fall off when you comb or wash your hair. There are not so many obstacles to the fall of short hair, just as it grows out quietly and leaves quietly.
In addition, regardless of length or volume, one long hair is equivalent to several short hairs, so the naked eye seems to have lost more hair, but in fact the number may be about the same.
Will tying the hair frequently make the hairline higher and higher?
Truth: Tie the hair too tightly and other behaviors such as pulling the hair can really cause hair loss.
The tighter the hair is tied, the greater the pulling force on the hair follicles at the root of the hair. Over time, it may damage the hair follicles and induce inflammation around the hair follicles such as folliculitis. Damaged hair follicles shrink or stop growing, resulting in thinner and less hair, vellus-like hair, hair loss spots, and increased hairline. Clinically, this kind of hair loss disease is called "traction alopecia", and it is common in girls who often wear braids.
But this kind of hair loss can be reversed. If you realize these problems in time and reduce or stop pulling on the hair follicles, the hair follicles will slowly recover and the hairline can come back.
Will wearing a hat often cause hair loss?
Truth: Wearing a hat for too long and too tight a hat can really aggravate hair loss.
Wearing a hat itself does not cause hair loss, but wearing a hat for a long time may have an indirect effect on the hair.
For example, wearing some poorly breathable hats for a long time will leave the scalp in a closed environment, and may experience increased sweating and increased oil secretion. If it is not cleaned in time, it may induce bacterial or fungal infections, leading to folliculitis or seborrheic dermatitis, thereby aggravating the symptoms of hair loss.
Moreover, if the cap is too tight, some of the hair follicles that have been under pressure for a long time may suffer from insufficient blood supply, and even inflammation, leading to more hair loss.
Therefore, when choosing a hat, try to buy a loose, comfortable and breathable hat; in addition, don't wear a hat for too long or too tight.
Will dieting to lose weight cause hair loss and hair loss?
Truth: The malnutrition caused by dieting can really make hair fall more.
After dieting to lose weight, I feel more hair loss. This is not an illusion!
Hair growth requires balanced nutrition, and changes in the body's metabolic state will also affect the health of hair follicles, which in turn will affect hair loss. Excessive dieting can cause the body to lack the necessary nutrients, cause changes in hormone levels in the body, and weaken immunity, which can shorten the growth cycle of hair follicles.
In addition, the nutrition of the hair itself will also become worse, especially the lack of protein, which will cause the hair to become dry and yellow and break easily.
Fortunately, this kind of hair loss is reversible. After stopping the diet and returning to a normal diet, the situation can slowly recover. Therefore, during the weight loss period, a balanced diet and adequate protein intake must also be ensured.Back
