Ladies, it's no secret that our hair is arguably one of our most prized possessions. We nourish it, condition it and keep it well maintained in hopes that the hair Gods just might bless us with a perfect hair day. But when it comes to good hair care, don't believe EVERYTHING you hear.
Just like anything else in life, there are certain myths that come along with your hair which you just shouldn't ever believe. Let's put it this way -- it's like when you go to the salon and the hair stylist tells you that you absolutely NEED to do "this and that," otherwise your hair will burn off and you'll be bald forever! Okay, so that's a bit of an exaggeration, but you know what we're getting at.
The bottom line is, you shouldn't let anyone tell you that there is something you absolutely have to do to your hair. So, with that being said, we're debunking the most common hair myths that you seriously need to know. Listen closely.
1) Regular trims equal hair growth
Hair grows from the roots, not the ends, so be aware that trimming doesn't increase length or growth.
2) Using the same shampoo often lessens its effects
The key component to ensuring your shampoo will always work is to find one that is perfect for your hair type.
3) Don't pluck gray hairs or more will grow
Plucking gray hairs won't make more grow, but it does irritate the follicle, leading to unhealthy hair.
4) You must always shampoo, rinse and repeat
Shampooing only once is perfectly fine. In fact, it's probably better if you don't repeat.
5) Comb hair from top to bottom
Combing hair from top to bottom can cause a lot of breakage. Start at the ends, and work your way up.
6) Sunlight is a healthy way to lighten hair
The scalp can be prone to sunburn, damaged follicles, and can even leave your hair feeling dry.
