When it comes to hair loss there is a lot of misinformation floating around. Yes, there are very real, scientific causes of hair loss, but there are also things that people claim can cause hair loss that typically do not on their own.

To us, hair is one of the most fascinating parts of the human body. Did you know that hair grows on every surface of the body except the palms, lips and genitals.
