Can Shampoo Cause Hair Loss?

I have read that some people lose their hair because they are using certain kinds of shampoo (like a shampoo with SLS – Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) Is this true? Can shampoo cause hair loss?

    One interesting fact is that hair models (the women with the shiny hair in TV commercials and printed ads) only use shampoo a couple of times a year.

    Shampoo causes hair to become more dry and removes natural oils that make hair look healthy. However, most shampoos do contain SLS and excessive hair loss is not a common side effect of using these shampoos.

    It is important to remember that each day our head sheds approx. 100 hairs, so normal hair loss can occur while shampooing – This is not cause for concern though.
