Can Certain Hair Products Cause Hair Loss?
Depending on the types of hair products and their ingredients, some can cause temporary hair loss. The chemicals in products that perm and dye your hair are harsh and can cause your hair to weaken, be damaged or fall out, especially if they are not being used correctly. If you are considering dying or perming your hair, it is best to go to a professional who will be able to ensure your hair’s health throughout the procedure.
Shampoos, conditioners, and styling products are less likely to cause hair loss unless they have strong chemicals in them. You could protect your hair by switching to products that use natural ingredients instead of harsh chemicals. More natural versions of hair dyes are also widely available and contain fewer chemicals and harsh products that may lead to temporary hair damage and hair loss. You may also consider washing your hair fewer days per week to let your hair rest and restore itself. Overwashing your hair tend to strip your hair of the essential oils and minerals that keep the hair healthy. If your hair follicles become weak, the hair becomes more prone to thinning.
If you notice that your hair loss has increased or that you have patches of hair missing, you may be experiencing more severe hair loss. If you think you may be experiencing hair loss, Bosley suggests that you seek your physician. Once you find out if your hair loss is temporary of permanent, you can seek the appropriate treatment.
