A Hot Tip to Prevent Hair Loss?

Man washing his hair in showerRecently, word reached The Belgravia Centre of an 80-year old man who confidently proclaimed that his full head of healthy hair was down to an unusual practice involving hot water. Unlike his friends, this particular man had not experienced any significant hair loss, or even a receding hair line.

The man explained that every day he washed his hair with the hottest water he could stand without burning himself. By using extremely hot water, he explained, blood was drawn to his scalp which helped to keep his hair healthy.

Don’t get your hair into (too) hot water

A good flow of blood to the scalp and hair follicles is essential for healthy hair growth as the man believed, but the use of excessively hot water could be very dangerous. Scalding and burns can cause scarring of the scalp which will in turn damage hair follicles and prevent hair regrowth in future.

It is also unlikely that the man’s hair washing regime was solely responsible for his hair retention: more likely is that he was one of the minority of men who do not experience significant hair loss, and he has drawn an incorrect causal link. There are, in any case, far safer treatments to prevent hair loss and promote regrowth which are undoubtedly more comfortable too.

Here at The Belgravia Centre we prescribe clients clinically proven medications to combat hair loss. Rather than risk your hairline following an unproven hair washing regime, why not give us a call on 0800 077 6666 to arrange a free, no-obligation appointment with one of our hair loss specialists today. Alternatively, you can contact us through our website to arrange your appointment; or, if you’re not local to our London hair loss clinic, you can fill out our online diagnostic form for a hair loss treatment programme that we can send to you anywhere in the world.
