Does Washing Cause Hair Loss?

Debunking the myth: Washing your hair WON'T make it fall out!

Watch the full video explanation by Dr Annie HERE

Derm facts below:

👩‍⚕️ Hair falls out at the root (e.g. scalp surface)

👩‍⚕️ When it initially falls out, it gets trapped with the rest of your hairs

👩‍⚕️ But the motion of washing your hair loosens up all those already-shed hairs...which appears as a massive sudden shedding event...when it really isn't!

But, if you're worried about hair loss, this should be discussed with a Board-Certified Dermatologist. There's many different reasons for hair loss, and the first step to getting the correct and personalized treatment for your type of hair loss is to get a proper diagnosis by a Dermatologist. Once once a specific diagnosis is reached, can the most effective treatment plan be developed.
