Why grocery store shampoos can cause hair loss, causing alopecia

Why grocery store shampoos can cause hair loss, causing alopecia
Research has shown that hair loss can be caused by a number of factors, and depending on the cause, hair may fall out gradually or abruptly, thin, or in some cases regrow on its own without treatment, or require immediate attention to prevent permanent hair loss.

The use of products that can cause hair loss is not often mentioned in reports of causes of alopecia, although several shampoo products have been reported to cause hair loss in many people, causing them to shave their heads after purchasing shampoo and conditioner from supermarkets that contained a hair removal cream.

Several reports have surfaced of people being traumatised and left in tears when clumps of her hair started falling out in the shower. Throughout the night and the following morning, large chunks were still falling out, with many posting photos to social media to show bald patches left on their scalp.

If you colour, perm, or relax your hair, you could be damaging your hair. Over time, this damage can lead to hair loss

As with all health products, however, hair loss products have their own unique formulation. Products can also vary in effectiveness and specific products are not right for everyone.

Is regrowth possible?

By changing how you take care of your hair, you can prevent hair loss. If a hair follicle is damaged, it cannot produce hair, but if there are many damaged follicles, permanent baldness results.
