Debunking 5 Common Myths About Hair Loss and Hair Restoration

Myths About Hair LossMen and women have been seeking ways to fight against hair loss ever since the beginning of human civilization. Over time, a great deal of inaccurate information has come to be accepted as fact—old wives’ tales and wishful thinking have made it difficult to determine the truth.

Even in the 25 years that Invisions of Connecticut has been providing men and women with the most effective non-surgical hair loss treatments, we have spent a great deal of time and energy correcting various misconceptions (we’re happy to do so!).

Giving access to the most accurate and up-to-date information is one of the most effective ways to ensure that hair loss treatments progress smoothly, so we’ve compiled information containing real facts behind the many myths surrounding hair growth, hair loss, and hair restoration.

Hair Grows Faster After Frequent Trimming & Hats Cause Hair Thinning

All body and scalp hair grows from follicles, cylindrical segments of the epidermis underneath the skin. Once a person’s hair shaft has grown to the point that it reaches the scalp surface it is functionally dead, despite the fact that the hair follicle itself is still alive and active. This is why cutting, covering, or even chemically coloring your hair on the surface will have virtually no effect on your hair growth.

That being said, some damaging hair care practices can lead to breakage or split-ends that can ultimately make the hair appear thinner. Pony-tails, braids, man-buns and other tight hairstyles can pull out hair strands from their roots and damage the follicle, however, these conditions are generally temporary and easily corrected by simply refraining from the behavior that is causing the damage.

Only Men Are Affected By Genetic Pattern Hair Loss

This may come as a surprise: many of the most common forms of hair loss occur equally in both men and women, with some forms affecting women even more frequently. The progression of women’s hair loss is typically less visually obvious than that experienced by men, which is one of the many reasons why the subject has been given much less attention by the media throughout the years. This is one of the many reasons why Invisions of Connecticut has devoted resources to educating the public and addressing the issues associated with women’s hair loss.

Hair Replacements Don't Look Natural

With multiple hair loss solutions available for men and women, there are various replacement and restoration techniques offering a natural look and feel. Techniques such as a men's SensiGraft or a women's Virtuesse hair replacement system are specifically created to meet the specific individual needs of each person. Also, because it’s totally customized to your specific hair type, color, density and style, it looks and feels totally natural and completely undetectable. 

It's Difficult to Be Active With Hair Replacement

One of the most common concerns people have is the worry of no longer having the ability to be active. Many people fear their hair replacement could become damaged or fall off. People also often worry about being out in the sun or  doing activities such as riding motorcycles or going swimming. However, with the right hair replacement solution, you'll be as active as ever. 

Surgical Hair Transplants Are the Only Treatment Option for Hair Loss

While some people do opt for surgical hair transplant procedures, like follicular unit grafting (FUG) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) can produce results, they are not the only treatment options available. We use a variety of non-surgical hair restoration methods, including red light laser treatments and hair replacement. We have always stressed to our patients the importance of hair maintenance treatments. Every case of hair loss is unique, so we work diligently with each hair loss sufferer to find the combination of treatments methods that will best fit their specific needs and achieve optimal results.
