# Wearing a wig or hat will cause hair fall?

The belief that wearing a hat will cut off circulation and thus cause hair loss is incorrect. As long as the hat is not super tight or constricting, circulation should be fine. The causes of hair loss are usually deep within the scalp – covering your hair with a hat is not a problem.
That being said, when wearing a hat or cap, make sure it’s not too constricting, and for summer time it’s best to wear something that has good ventilation.

#Starting and then stopping hair loss medication usage leads to increased hair loss?

For those with Male Pattern Baldness who take then stop hair loss medication use, the effects will wear off over a year and their hairs will revert to their pre-medication state. In addition, since people taking medication experienced effects, when their hairs fall again, it’s natural to think their condition got worse. Just to be clear though, this is incorrect. While it can be unpleasant to experience seeing your pre-medication use condition, it’s a natural consequence of the effects wearing off.

# Frequent hair washing leads to hair loss?

Hairs grow in cycles of anagen (growth), catagen (hair fall), and telogen (resting phase). Hairs that are in telogen, fall off naturally. This hair fall occurs regardless of the number of times you wash your hair. For those who notice their hair loss and don’t wash daily due to concerns of hair fall, this can backfire instead. Non daily or irregular hair shampooing can cause buildup of dust, oil, and other particles. This unclean environment can enter scalp pores causing an infection, which can lead to increased hair fall. A clean and healthy scalp is the first step for healthy hairs.
