Not according to Kayla Martell. Kayla was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata in the fifth grade and soon lost all of her hair. This did not stop her from winning five local beauty pageants from 2006 through 2010. Kayla eventually competed in the Miss Delaware Pageant a total of five times.
To care for your human hair system, you just need to be aware of a few simple things, and it is really quite easy. Your hair system is cut hair and not growth hair so it is a little different than your own hair. It does not receive any protein or oils from your scalp like your own growth hair does. The only oily build-up is from the products you put on for styling and conditioning. For this very same reason, cut human hair if not cared for properly has a tendency to get dry. This is not a problem with proper product selection and use. Follow these suggestions and you should experience no problems.
A Hungarian scientist was using Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) in research in 1967; the research was not related to hair growth. He had shaved the hair off the backs of mice in the area he was treating to better observe results. Half the mice received LLLT and the other half did not. The hair in the shaven area grew back much quicker on the mice receiving LLLT. As with many discoveries, this was found while working on a completely different research program.
It does happen to a large percentage of men; up to 70% will experience male pattern baldness to some degree during their life. The average man loses 50 to 100 hairs per day due to normal shedding. This is normal, but the problem is when something is preventing you from growing new hairs to replace those you shed.
This is the question we in the hair replacement industry have been asked for years.

The problem is people are hesitant to believe commercials because they think it is part of the sales pitch.
Do you desire to have beautiful, healthy hair? Before you start worrying about buying the best hair care products, you may want to think about what products you are using because the health of your hair depends on how healthy you are. However, we tend to buy the most expensive products without doing what is already in our hands...our food! While many of us theoretically know the importance of nutrition, the million-dollar question should be: what can we eat that is good for our hair?
