Myth 1: Stress Makes Your Hair Fall Out

The a.m. commute, deadlines…if everyday stress caused hair loss, then we’d all be bald! Genetics accounts for 95 percent of hair loss. Treatments include hair restoration (a surgical procedure in which tiny patches of scalp are removed from the back and sides of the head and implanted in bald spots) and topical use of minoxidil, an FDA-approved ingredient found in Rogaine, which is available over the counter in 2 percent and 5 percent formulas. The lower dose is approved for women, but many doctors recommend the higher dose to slow down shedding and to speed regrowth.

Act quickly: You won’t notice thinning until you’ve lost at least 50 percent of your hair.
