Losing your hair is terrifying, especially for a woman: your mane is often a symbol of your femininity, and a sign of your beauty, so losing your hair can be incredibly stressful. The good news is that you may be able to reverse, or at least slow down the process by finding the cause of your hair loss. Here are some surprising reasons why hair falls out.
1You abuse of styling products
Overstyling, whether it’s excessive brushing, overuse of heated tools, or even excessive use of certain long-lasting products, can damage your hair. This may give the impression that you are losing them, but in fact, they are simply detaching from their ends. “Hair myths, like brushing them a hundred times a day, can cause split ends,” says Dr. Paradi Mirmirani, a dermatologist certified by the American Academy of Dermatology. “Healthy hair is possible if you know how to take care of it before and after styling.” Dr. Mirmirani recommends drying them with a towel or hair dryer, brushing as little as possible, avoiding long-lasting styling products and setting styling tools at low to medium temperatures.
