Heat and Hair Loss
A hairdryer is a common household staple for many people. They are super incredibly convenient tools for people on the go. If you are trying to get out of the door quickly after washing your hair, you can transform your hair from sopping wet to completely dry in about five minutes. Though the convenience is undeniable, some may worry that using heat to style your hair too frequently can cause hair loss. Rest assured that this is not likely to be the case.
Hair Care in Moderation
It’s important to remember that when it comes to hair care and maintenance, less is more. It’s important to pay attention to your hair, but doing too much will have adverse effects. Hair experts often recommend washing your hair about two times a week in order to avoid stripping the hair and scalp of natural and healthy oils. The same principle applies to heat. Too many products and heat therapies can ultimately put too much strain on your hair.
Although they put undue stress on your hair, hairdryers and other heat instruments like straighteners, curling irons, and rollers are almost never the cause of ongoing hair loss. However, these instruments can compromise the texture, volume, and strength of your hair. If your hair begins to lose its overall healthy look and feel, you will likely be able to get your hair back to its normal look by simply changing your hair care habits or using protective measures to manage excess heat. You can buy heat protectant in the form of sprays or gels from most drug stores, which can provide some protection from heat damage.
