Tweezing is not likely to influence or cause diameter changes to hair texture. Hormonal variables and genetic predisposition are much more likely to be at play.’ However ‘tweezing eyebrows repeatedly can lead to destruction of the follicle. But from a trichological perspective, if someone is going through hair changes and also reports the eyebrows are finer and more sparse we will always want to ensure there is no thyroid imbalance’.

An age-old hair myth is that hair can turn grey or white overnight. Scientifically, it is impossible for your hair to turn grey or white overnight. The hair that you see on your head has its colour genetically formed. Hair colour can only be changed by applying a bleach or colouring agent. Therefore, unless someone has snuck into your room at night and treated you to a set of highlights, you cannot wake up one morning to find all of your existing hairs have turned grey or white overnight.

‘My hair has gone grey / white overnight’ is also one of those dramatic statements used to convey the degree of stress somebody has undergone. Stress can in fact affect hair colour and cause it to turn grey or white, but this happens gradually

An emotional trauma can cause sudden hair loss; this reversible, normal condition is called telogen effluvium.

How can something that has nothing to do with your hair or scalp cause your hair to fall out? Well, according to doctors and hair loss experts, anything that disrupts your body’s normal rhythms or hormone levels can also disrupt the hair growth cycle. Sometimes, this disruption causes hair follicles to get stuck in the telogen, or resting, phase until they are pushed out in the exogen (shedding) phase. Because follicles do not return to the normal anagen (growth) phase, hair loss appears to be sudden and noticeable.  This condition is known as telogen effluvium.
