There are all kinds of myths and misconceptions out there when it comes to hair. If you are not well informed when it comes to your follicles, it is important to what will and will not affect them. Here are a few important things to know about healthy hair growth:
- Hair does grow faster throughout the summer: When it is cold outside, blood is diverted to our internal organs in order to maintain body temperature. As a result, there is less blood flowing to the scalp, which restricts fuller or faster growth. In warmer weather, enhanced circulation to the scalp boosts follicle activity and increases the overall rate of hair growth.
- Shaving newborns does not prevent baldness: One popular myth out there is that, by shaving the head of a newborn baby boy, parents will be able to prevent baldness later in life. This is, of course, untrue, as there are a number of different reasons why somebody can lose their hair. The prevailing reason behind balding is the genetics of the individual.
- Stress can cause hair to fall out faster: There are many physical effects that stress can have on your body, including causing your hair to fall out. All hair follicles go through regular rest periods, but increased amounts of stress can cause the follicles to enter this phase prematurely. Hair will fall out for months following the stressful event, which you will notice right away.
