7. Pattern baldness is not caused by wearing hats, shampooing or poor circulation. Decreased circulation in the scalp can be a result of hair loss, but not typically the cause. Healthy hair follicles are not negatively affected by wearing a hat or brushing the hair. You lose between 100-150 hairs per day regardless of how you handle your scalp.
8. Some medications lead to hair loss, which is often temporary. These include drugs used to treat: thyroid conditions, immune disorders, depression, cancer, high blood pressure and more. They attack fast-growing cells of the skin and hair as these typically turn over quickly. Once treatment is discontinued, many people will see their hair grow back in.
9. There are other reversible causes for hair loss too, including vitamin deficiencies, shock loss after stress, certain medical conditions and traction alopecia in some cases.
10. Hair transplants in Toronto and non-surgical solutions can be combined to give you the best results. Many patients choose to combine surgery with medication, laser light therapy or PRP treatments to boost follicle health and hair growth.
