Splitting hairs about hair fall
Going beyond the myth and facing facts
Despite several myths behind hair fall, most people do not really know what causes it or what will really make it go away. Research has shown that the main cause of hair fall is breakage. Mechanical damage caused by combing, brushing as well as chemical damage from colouring and perming can weaken the hair, and that results in breakage. However, there is another truth about hair fall: There is actually a link between dandruff and hair fall. This is particularly important as dandruff affects more than 50% of the world’s population, and affects both men and women
