Can Styling Products Kill the Hair?

I’ve been on the finasteride and minoxidil stacked for a little over a year now, and I’ve had great results with minimal sides.

I just recently got into styling my hair. I’ve been using pomade daily, and I’m concerned about the amount of hair I’ve been seeing on my hands and comb/brush when styling.

I’m wondering if this is indeed increased shedding from the styling product, or if I’m just catching “sticky clumps” of hair from the pomade.

 No. The hair above the scalp is dead, so styling products can change the character of the hair, damage it when it is heated with an iron, or be damaged with dye. The hair follicle, which is below the skin, keeps pumping out new hair at a rate of 1/2 inch per month that is not damaged.
