7 popular Hair Myths you need not believe
How can you tell what is factual and what is just hype or speculation? Here are 7 popular hair care myths and facts that may expose the hair care fallacies that say all:
Myth 1: Hair grows faster when it is cut often.
Truth: Hair growth originates at the roots, not at the ends. So, cutting the ends of your hair does not affect the follicles that control your hair growth.
Myth 2: Gray hair is caused by acute stress.
Truth: Graying is a multidimensional expression influenced mostly by genetics and age. As you become older, your body produces less melanin (the pigment that gives your hair its color).
Myth 3: Two grey hairs will develop if you pluck one.
Truth: Tweezing one or two grey hairs will not result in the growth of more. One should remember grey hairs are ascertained by genetics and aging, which is a natural process.
Myth 4: One should comb the hair at least 100 times every day.
Truth: Brushing your hair 100 strokes a day is a needless exercise. It can damage your hair and accelerate premature hair fall. Combing should be done in a normal way.
Myth 5: You have a dry scalp if your hair is full of dandruff.
Truth: Dandruff is caused by yeast that flourishes in an oily state. To help with flakes, try washing your hair more frequently with a medicated shampoo designed for dandruff removal.
Myth 6: Hair becomes greasy when the conditioner is used.
Truth: The conditioner does not affect oily hair. Instead, excessive sebum production at the scalp is the cause.
Myth 7: Since your hair becomes adapted to your products, you must alter them regularly.
Truth: It usually happens due to environmental changes such as hard water, humidity, indoor heating, or a hair treatment or texture service. The use of shampoo or conditioner depends on individual choice.
You now have a better understanding of whether the hair myths you’re hearing or reading is true or not.
