Hair Growth Cycle Myths and Facts


Gotta discuss the myths that seem to circle around with a vengeance and my first question is WHY???  My second question is what's it gonna take to get rid of them?  Well, all I can do is share the knowledge so drink in my lovely Naturals!!!

Hair Growth Myths

Separating Fact from Fiction

Once major myth regarding the hair growth cycle is that sections of hair go through each cycle at the same time, leading to missing patches of hair. This is completely false, as each individual hair goes through these phases at its own independent rate. Even though you shed your hair on a regular basis, a healthy scalp and head of hair will never have complete sections of hair missing at one time.

Some people also believe that by frequently wearing hats, you will toy with the hair growth cycle in a negative way. This is highly unlikely, unless the hat is being worn extremely tightly, and cutting off circulation to the hair follicles, thus speeding up the releasing of the dermal papilla.

In addition, many people believe that excessive washing, drying and styling of the hair will increase hair loss. This won’t happen unless you are doing this at excessive measures, roughly and multiple times a day.

Just wanted to share Naturals,


  1. I have actually never heard any of these myths. Good for me I guess, but they sound really silly to believe.

    1. There are more but who knows why they creep up in the first place.
