Hair loss in most of the cases is a genetic problem but not necessarily due to the maternal genes. It can be from either of the parent’s side. So, before concluding that the reason behind the baldness is the genes from the mother, it is wise to cross check the history of baldness in both the parent’s families.

Hats and helmets cause baldness

hats and helmets @TheRoyaleIndia

No hats, helmets or baseball caps cause baldness. These head gears are no way worn tight enough to block the blood circulation to the hair follicle. If this was to be true then every army man, police officer and anyone who has to wear caps as part of uniform, would have been bald.

Shaving helps in growth of thicker hair

It is the biggest myth that has been taking rounds in every family-that shaving the head is the best option to get thicker and black hair. If this would have been true, then every woman would have gone bald a few times in her life!
