Is Shampooing Causing Hair Loss?

How often should you wash your hair? Will washing your hair every day make it fall out? Is shampooing less best? What shampoo should you use: clarifying, “low-poo” or “no-poo”? You are not the only one who has asked these questions.

We dig in to help separate the myths from the truth to set the record straight, while also helping you truly discover the health of your hair and scalp.

Why People Are Skipping the Shampoo
People are shampooing their hair less often during a week, often because they have heard that shampooing daily is bad for their hair. The advice may have been from a magazine or Blog, from a friend, or even from a hair stylist.
One common reason often given for why individuals are not shampooing every day is because it will cause hair loss. The truth is that shampooing with the proper product every day does not cause hair loss. Cleansing the scalp and hair daily with a shampoo that has a mild cleanser is recommended by our trichologists because it has benefits for your hair and scalp.

Why You Should Shampoo Daily
We lose an average of 80 to 100 hairs daily in healthy hair shedding, but those hairs are not gone. Our hairs are constantly being regenerated in a cycle of growth, rest, and eventual fall out. You may notice the shedding most when brushing your hair or after washing your hair. This is because when a hair releases from the scalp it is usually held in place by other hairs as well as any styling product in the hair – almost like Velcro.

Shampooing your hair daily helps hairs that have shed to be released so that new hairs can replace them. Individuals that shampoo only once or twice a week may see a more alarming amount of hairs shed when they wash their hair. Once shampooing is done daily what may have seemed like an extreme amount of shedding can subside into a healthy range of around 80 to 100 hairs shed daily.
Cleansing our hair and scalp daily is necessary to remove dirt, oils, and product build up, while helping create a healthy environment for hair to continue to grow in. There are so many different shampoo options available to choose from that it’s hard to know which to use. Not all shampoos are created equal. It is important to make sure the shampoo you are using is suited for daily use, as well as your hair and scalps’ individual needs.

Is Your Shampoo Right for You?
Another all too common reason given for not shampooing daily is that it makes hair too dry. If you are like most individuals, you look for a solution at the hair level when you recognize a problem like dryness. Dryness in the hair is sometimes a sign that the shampoo being used contains a cleanser or detergent that is too strong for the scalp. Continuing to use a shampoo with too harsh of a detergent can strip the scalp and hair of its’ healthy oils, which can create a drying effect to hair and scalp eventually leading to problems.

Alternatively, shampoo that contains very little to no cleansing ingredients does not effectively cleansing the scalp and hair of oils, dirt, and product buildup. Over time not properly cleansing oil from the scalp and hair can cause excessive hair shedding, oily dandruff, and even oily hair loss. A balanced level of oil on the hair and scalp is ideal to help maintain moisture, add shine and protect against bacteria overproduction.

Your scalp is the missing link to healthy hair. It is of equal, if not of greater importance, to take care of your scalp and hair by shampooing daily with the proper product. Shampoos suited for daily use have a mild cleanser designed to effectively cleanse the hair and scalp, while maintaining a balance of oil and hydration to create a healthy environment for hair to grow.

Will Hereditary Hair Loss Affect You?

 

Hair loss or thinning caused by genetics is referred to as androgenetic alopecia, or, more commonly, hereditary hair loss.

Unfortunately, medical science has yet to discover a cure for hereditary hair loss. Thanks to advancements in science and medical research, however, we have a better understanding of how heredity affects hair thinning and hair loss and what we can do to prevent its onset.

In this episode of Hair Loss Solutions TV™, you will discover the following:

  • What Trichotillomania is
  • The different stages of hair pulling severity
  • The research behind this common disorder

If you’ve ever felt like pulling your hair out, you are not alone. While this is a common figurative phrase, pulling your hair in a literal sense is very real, and it’s a common disorder that many people may not even realize exists.

What is Trichotillomania?

Trichotillomania, a neurobiological and behavior disorder known as “Hair Pulling Disorder,” is the repetitive pulling out of one’s hair. According to the TLC Foundation, “Trichotillomania is one of a group of behaviors known as Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs), self-grooming behaviors in which individuals pull, pick, scrape, or bite their hair, skin, or nails, resulting in damage to the body.” Trichotillomania affects about 1 in 25 people, and the best way to manage this disorder is to educate yourself. While many who experience these urges feel shame and embarrassment, it is essential to spread the message that they are not alone, and there is help out there.

In the video above, Clinical Psychologist Dr. Renae Reinardy discusses this common disorder, the variations of severity and the options for people suffering from this problem that are available.

If you or someone you know has hair loss due to the pulling urges, contact us at Jeffrey Paul’s Hair and Scalp Specialists. We can help assess the problem and provide guidance as to your next steps.

Are You Protecting Your Hair While You Sleep?

Tangles and snarls and bed head – what a nightmare! While your body desperately needs sleep, one of the worst things for your hair and your hair replacement system is sleeping on it. Fortunately, I’m here to help. Watch my video above and follow these beauty tips to protect your hair before settling in for your beauty sleep:

  1. Sleep with a satin pillowcase. Whether you realize it or not, you move throughout the night and using a satin pillowcase prevents friction.
  2. Before going to bed, spray my Beautiful Hair Spray Conditioner onto hair and gently distribute with a wet brush, paddle brush, or vent brush.
  3. When you wake up, spray water onto your hair because all of the Beautiful Hair and Aquage products are reactivated with water.

How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

Have you ever wondered if it’s really necessary to wash your hair every day? This is a very common and great beauty question. And the answer might just surprise you!

In reality, you should shampoo your every other day, or less often if possible. Unless you are highly active and perspiring each day, your hair should be able to go a couple days without being shampooed. Your hair actually isn’t made to be cleaned daily. So, how do you know what’s best for you? Test it out.

When you wake up in the morning, spray my Beautiful Hair Spray Conditioner on your hair, brush through and examine how your hair looks. If your roots are a little oily, use dry shampoo to soak up some of the oil.

If you continue to stay tuned to my beauty tips, you’ll better understand what is right for you and what tips I have to keep your hair looking its best.
