Can shampoo cause hair loss?
If you’re suffering from hair loss, it’s unlikely that your shampoo is causing it.
You may be noticing that your hair falls out when you’re in the shower, but that’s usually nothing to worry about as we all naturally lose around 50-100 hairs a day.
When you wash your hair, it will shift the hair that has already become detached.
If you leave your hair a while before your next shampoo, the strands that have become loose are waiting to be removed by washing - the more days you leave it, the more hairs you’ll see.
If your hair loss is significant, it’s more likely to be caused by ageing or a medical issue such as stress, illness or certain medications.
How often should I use leave-in conditioner?
Leave-in conditioner is a great way to lock in extra moisture if you’re dealing with dry or damaged hair.
To avoid a build-up of product in your hair, you should try to limit your use of leave-in conditioner to once or twice a week.
What is caffeine shampoo?
Caffeine shampoos, like Alpecin and Plantur 39, are designed to treat hair loss by using caffeine extract.
The idea is that caffeine will be absorbed into the scalp and stimulate the hair follicles to regrow, however, research into its efficacy is ongoing.
It’s recommended that you should leave the shampoo in your hair for around 2 minutes before rinsing.
How does dry shampoo work?
Dry shampoo contains alcohol and starch-based ingredients to soak up the oils collecting in your hair.
By removing these oils and adding fragrance, your hair will feel much cleaner and fresher.
Technically, though, it doesn’t wash or clean your hair and shouldn’t be used as a complete replacement for your regular shampoo.
It simply disguises any dirt or grease on your scalp so you can go longer between washes.
