Hair loss is very common in men. Hair thins or falls out as a natural result of ageing, male pattern baldness, emotional shock or stress, or due to an underlying condition or medical treatment.

Common myths about hair loss

1. Wearing a hat or cap will causes hair loss: not true!

2. Brushing, combing, styling or having someone run their fingers through it also won’t cause hair loss (although if your hair is weak then you should generally avoid being too rough with it to prevent breakage).
