Are you curious about the myths and misconceptions surrounding hair care? In this blog post, we'll explore some of the common hair myths and explain why they shouldn't be taken as gospel.
- One of the most common hair myths is that shampooing your hair daily is bad for it. In reality, shampooing daily is only necessary for those with excessively oily scalp and hair. For the majority of people, shampooing every other day or even every three days is sufficient.
- Another popular myth is that cutting your hair more often makes it grow faster. Unfortunately, this isn't true. Hair grows from the follicle, not the ends, so regular trims will not affect how quickly your hair grows.
- On the same note, some people believe that not trimming their hair will make it grow faster. Again, this isn't true. Without regular trims, split ends can form, leading to breakage and the appearance of shorter hair.
- Another myth is that washing your hair in cold water will make it shinier. While cold water can help close the cuticles on the hair, it won't make it shiny. To achieve this, you will need to use a quality conditioner and/or hair mask.
- Finally, some people believe that brushing their hair 100 times a day will make it stronger and shinier. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. Brushing your hair too often can actually cause damage and breakage, so it's best to stick to brushing it once or twice a day.
We hope this post has helped to dispel some of the common hair myths. When it comes to hair care, the best thing you can do is find a routine that works for you and listen to your hairdresser's advice.
