Lose the Booze: Alcohol and Hair Growth

You look at yourself in the mirror while getting ready for another night on the town. You still look good, right? I mean, your wrinkles are barely visible and although there are some signs of graying, you write it off as aging gracefully. Yep, you’ve still got it – but wait, what is that? You drop the comb and, upon closer inspection, you find a small patch of your skin, glaring back at you in the mirror where your salt-and-pepper hair should be.

You remember that your grandmother once told you that alcohol stimulates hair growth, so you dab some of that scotch you have on-hand to your scalp in a feeble attempt to stimulate your follicles, knock the rest of your drink back, and you start your night.

I’m not the kind of person to run around dissing your nana, but this time she’s wrong – alcohol does not encourage hair growth at all. In fact, the words “alcohol” and “hair” should never really be in the same sentence. The only thing you succeeded in doing when you applied that expensive whiskey on your head is dry your scalp, cause hair breakage, and make you smell like a drunk.

You see, when you smeared that alcohol on your scalp, it evaporated quickly – taking some of your hair’s own moisture with it. As we know, dry hair is damaged hair, and although damaged hair does not cause baldness, it certainly causes hair breakage, which in turn may lead to some hair falling out.

So take your bottle of scotch back to the liquor cabinet where it belongs, and make sure to steer clear of alcohol-based hair products the next time you are at the drugstore – your hair may even grow back if you do!
