True or False: Shampooing Makes Your Hair Shed

People often lose hair in the shower so they link their hair loss to their shampooing routine. The truth is, if your hair is going to fall out, it will fall out whether you’re in the shower or not. You lose up to 100 hairs per day, but it may be more noticeable in the shower than when you’re out and about.

On the other end of the spectrum, if you cut back on washing your hair altogether, you can have oil buildup that will cause inflammation and stunt hair’s growth. Long story short, don’t skip the shampoo, it won’t make your hair fall out any more than normal.
