Hair Loss Myths
There is a lot of advice out there recommending specific forms of hair loss treatment. We’ve identified a few hair loss treatments that don’t actually prevent hair loss. One common belief is that shampooing will accelerate balding. This has not been proven and is not accepted by most hair loss experts. Another common misconception is that massaging your hair to promote circulation will help. This is simply not true. Massaging does not stop hair loss.
