We have heard stories of all old wives: your hair 100 strokes every night before bed to make it thick and healthy! Trim your hair regularly to grow faster! In this article, I’ll tell you what, if any, of these stories are true, and those that are pure myth.

Myth # 2: Stress can cause baldness.
Truth: All normally loses an average of approximately 50-120 strands of hair every day. Extremely high levels of stress, from major life changes such as divorce or job loss can cause an increase in hair loss, as can other chemical changes in the body such as pregnancy or antibiotics. But is not permanent-once the stress is gone, the amount of hair fall will be back to normal and, indeed, all the hair will regrow lost.
Myth # 3: you must change often using shampoo for healthy hair growth.
