i am eighteen years of age and am loosing quite alot of hair. it has been a month since this has been happening to me. i dont really know if it is cos im using a hair strightener 2-3 times a week and m washin my hair at least twice in a week. i am loosing my hair particularly when i am in shower. i am really worried and m not using a hair straightner at all during this christmas hoildays. Do u think that i should use my hair straightener once a week and wash it once too? i will really appriciate it if you write back!
Thanks a million!
I am not 100% certain that a hair straightener can cause permanent hair loss, but if you are concerned, then you should stop its use and see if your problem goes away. That is the easiest and most logical thing to do. Sometime chemicals can cause your hair to become very brittle and break without actually destroying your root, therefore causing any hair loss to appear a lot worse than it actually is. It is normal to lose up to 100 hairs per day.
