Being bombarded with mountains of information about hair care, a lot of hair issues still remain a mystery for a lot of women.
Myths keep circulating and the problem is, they may have gray areas. This is the primary reason women fail to do the right thing or doing it right.
Here are some of the common myths about hair care:
1. 100 Strokes Before Bed
It’s probably one of the tales your grandma told you. But while a hundred brush strokes can make hair look beautiful and healthy to some extent, it becomes harmful when done incessantly.
Brushing stimulates circulation to the scalp and distributes the natural oils properly. However, excessive brushing actually erodes the hair cuticle, causing breakage and often hair fall. So you may put your brush down once in a while.
2. Plucking Gray Hair Will Speed Up Graying
There is no evidence to prove that you are inviting two or more in exchange for one gray hair. However, although untrue, plucking hair can be too stressful to the roots of the hair because it can cause infection or scarring.
3. Frequent Trims Make Hair Grow Fast
While this could be a good idea to get rid of split ends, it will not make any difference in the way your hair grows. Hair grows at a rate of 1/2 inch per month under normal circumstances. The only option you have is to do preventive measures for hair loss and/or make sure your hair grows properly.
4. Regular Switch of Shampoos Is Good
But there is no reason for you to switch shampoos if your current shampoo works well with your hair, right? Typically, your hair will tell you it’s time you switch shampoos, that is when you see signs of drying, brittleness, and the like.
Besides having no scientific backing, switching shampoos from time to time does no harm to anything but your time and effort.
5. Products that Can Mend Split Ends
Unfortunately, when your cuticle splits away, no existing product can glue them on again. The only way to get rid of split ends is to get a nice trim.
6. More Is Better
Sometimes, ladies become paranoid and too self-conscious that they tend to overdo a hair care regimen or dabble their hair and scalp with too many products.
In fact, according to the medical director of Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Matt Leavitt, the secret of a healthy-looking hair is a good shampoo and conditioner. Remember the cliche “too much of something is bad”?
