All About Hair Tattooing and Hair Simulation

Updated on July 4, 2013

Hair loss is frustrating!

The three main causes for hair loss in men and women are stress, improper hair care routine and genetic/heritable factors (male-pattern baldness). The amount of hair lost and its treatment may vary for every individual but it is absolutely normal to lose about 50-100 hair every day.

Most of us are addicted to a bad lifestyle which is another cause for hair related problems. Did you know? Even how you style and care for your hair can cause hair loss. Therefore, you should never cut hair at home and seek the advice of your hairstylist before changing a style or before using a new product.

While each person may have a different reason, the fact is... losing hair is frustrating!
