Shampooing Doesn’t Cause Hairloss Hello I’m Doctor Neal Schultz and welcome to Derm TV. One of the most frustrating problems for both men and women is when they think that there hair is falling out or they’re loosing too much hair. Actually we’re supposed to shed or loose 150 hairs everyday. So and there were times in different seasons when were shed a little more, shed a little less the only thing that matters to you is the density of your hair changing. For every hair that falls out are you growing a new hair and most of the time we are. But when people do see what they perceive to be and increasing hair loss that you just the opposite thing they decrease shampooing of their hair because they think shampooing makes their hair fall out or it promotes hair falling out because we see all those hairs in the drain, the reality is if the hair isn’t ready to fall out, shampooing is not going to make it fall out but by decreasing the frequency of shampooing, you tend to get an accumulation of dead cells in the scalp and it almost starts to cost a little of dandruff or Seborrhea that inflames the skin and by inflaming the skin of the scalp that makes hair loss worst. So the next time you think you’re loosing a little bit more hair then you should be loosing on a normal regular day. Continue to shampoo your hair regularly there is nothing wrong with shampooing your hair everyday or every night it won’t make your hair fall out. Please join me again at DermTV.com.
