Does Hairspray Cause Hair Loss?

Hairspray Cause Hair Loss

If you’re beginning to notice your hair thinning or falling out, you may be wondering what the cause is and what can be done to stop it. With so much information on the internet or from friends and family members about the rumored causes of hair loss, it’s important to know the truth. This will help you distinguish fact from fiction and take appropriate actions that will ultimately benefit the health and vitality of your hair.

Almost everyone uses a hair styling product while getting dressed and ready in the morning. Whether gel, wax, or hairspray, these products are great for adding hold and shine to your hair, but many wonder whether or not they are causing long-term damage to their hair follicles. One common hair loss myth is that hair loss can be caused by hairspray, gel, or other styling substances. The truth is, hairspray does not cause hair loss, and neither do any of these other activities: frequent shampooing, washing, and any other styling product.

The cause of hair loss lies below the scalp surface when the hair follicle root is damaged. This means daily applications of hairspray does not damage your hair and will not directly lead to permanent hair loss. However, styling products can cause hair follicles to become weak and brittle, thereby increasing the chance of the hair breaking when overused or misused. Fortunately, breakage is not permanent, and the hair will continue to grow.

That being said, not all hairsprays are good for your hair’s health. Styling products advertised as “long-lasting” typically contain alcohol and can dry your hair out, making it much more susceptible to breakage. Additionally, using large amounts of hairspray, gel, or other products can make your hair stiff and sticky, increasing the chance of it breaking when running your fingers or a comb through it during styling.
