Gellin’ like a Felon: Do Hair Products Cause Hair Loss?

Every morning, your alarm goes off and you set off on your beauty routine: you brush, primp, goop, dab, and brush again on your way to coif perfection that will last your whole day – but are these styling products causing you to lose your hair? Kind of.

According to Hair Loss Expert, products such as hair sprays, styling gels, and holding creams can cause hair loss if they are used too often. If these substances build up on your treasured tresses, they can weigh hair down, dry it out, or weaken the strands, causing damage to your hair, like breaking, splitting, and – you guessed it – falling out.  The way you style your locks may also indirectly cause hair loss. Blow drying, ironing, and curling your hair may cause damage by burning and drying out your strands.

So now that we know that damaged hair may equal to lost hair, rest assured in the fact that there is still some good news – the hair loss from these products and styling tools may not be permanent.

The biggest culprit? Chemical treatments, such as hair dying, perms, and straightening treatments, can cause permanent damage and major follicle follies.

The reason? Think of your hair as your favorite white shirt with a giant stain that you are just dying to bleach out. You soak and rinse, but oops! You left the solution on too long, and unless you are Regina George, the shirt is now rendered useless. The same can happen to your hair – if an untrained hair professional leaves the solution on too long, uses too much, or treats your hair with the wrong solution for your hair type, hair loss may occur.

The solution? When visiting your stylist, make sure that you go to one that you trust. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and if you are unsure about their products, whip out your smart phone for some quick research – remember, your hair is in their hands.
