  • Stress is the cause of baldness: - Mental stress is considered to be the cause of severe hair loss. Although, stress is not the major cause of male-pattern baldness. But it cannot be completely ignored that stress do trigger some amount of hair fall.


  • Inherited from maternal side of the family: – People usually believe that baldness is inherited from mother’s family. In fact the gene called androgenic can be inherited from either side of the family. So, maternal side alone can’t be blamed.


  •  Regular shampooing cause hair-fall: - Baldness victim usually thinks that frequent rubbing or shampooing results in massive hair loss. But this is not the fact. If you don’t maintain hair health and wash it frequently, they would grow thinner and ultimately may lead to baldness.


  • Hats cause baldness: - People believe that wearing tight hats leads to hair loss. Wearing tight hat may cause slight hair fall, but not baldness. Hats do not lead to hair thinning or breakage. It can in no way affect the follicles.
