Hair Myths Debunked

"Confidence is a habit that can be developed by acting as if you already had the confidence you desire to have


Myth 1# Chopping your hair off will make it grow faster Regular trims are a must. It does away with split ends and leaves your mane healthy. However, it does not affect the growth of it. On a monthly average, hair grows half an inch regardless of whether you trim it or not. The trim just makes your hair appear neat and fuller. If you want the perfect mane, youve got to maintain it. For that to happen, you will have to visit the salon every eight to twelve weeks.

Myth 2# If you pluck one strand of grey hair, two more will grow in its placeWere sure everyone has heard of this one from some relative or the other. Truth is, thats not the case at all! The act of plucking will only make your scalp and hair weaker. Plucking out any type of hair and colour will force the hair follicle to reproduce more hair. Thats why we suggest you to embrace your age and put an end to damaging your hair.

Myth 3# The more often you brush your hair, the healthier it will become. Heard of that popular phrase, too much of anything is bad for you? Your hair is no exception here either. While you want your hair to be free from those troublesome knots, sometimes the act can do more harm than good. Over brushing your gorgeous locks can damage your hair cuticles causing strands to fall out. So, the next time you pick up that brush, think twice!

Myth 4# Always comb wet hair from top to bottom.

When hair is wet, its in its weakest form but its very important to detangle hair when its wet. Here a bit of advice, never use any comb on your hair except a wide-toothed comb, and, always start brushing from the bottom and not the top. Starting from the bottom will be less stressful on your strands and will prevent it from any further damage. Haphazardly running a comb from top to bottom will result in extra hair loss and damage.

Myth 5# Using the right hair products enables your hair to grow thicker. Youd be shocked to know this, but more than hair products, food is responsible for thicker and healthier hair. Since it takes your body a lot of energy to grow hair, it requires nutrients. Apparently, food happens to be the richest source of them all. Healthy food makes sure that your roots get enough of nutrients, minerals and vitamins to keep it going. So, if youre blessed with thick hair, its not hair products you need to give credit to, its actually your diet!

Myth 6# Dandruff signifies a dry scalpDryness is not what causes dandruff, its actually an oily scalp. Dandruff usually happens by a type of yeast that overgrows in an oily environment. Its your bodys way of tackling it. Avoid washing your hair daily to prevent the scalp from losing its natural oil. Also, if dandruff is an issue, make the best use of anti dandruff shampoo.

Myth 7# You should towel dry your hairMost women make this mistake. Once theyre out of the shower, they immediately pull out a towel and rub their hair dry vigorously. For your information, towel drying is rough on your hair, causes breakage and ruins its texture as well as causes frizziness thanks to all that friction. The next time you wash your hair, make sure that you gently pat your hair against the towel, and use a wide-tooth brush to remove excess water.

Myth 8# Going out with wet hair makes you fall sickWere sure you probably heard this from your parents a zillion number of times. Fortunately, wet hair has nothing to do with it, infact, germs and bacteria in the air do. You catch a cold when youre hair is dry as well thanks to airborne diseases.
