Can hairspray damage hair follicles and lead to hair loss?
If you brush or comb through your hair after the hair spray dries, you may pull out hair. In men and women with varying forms of alopecia, the use of hair sprays can be dangerous with rough combing of the hair. Best to wash it out rather than brush it out. Rough brushing can be a cause of hair loss made worse with hair sprays. Otherwise, hair spray by itself doesn’t equal hair loss.
