If you care for your skin religiously, you must also do the same for your hair. Use the right hair products, wash them twice a week and even give them some home remedies magic. As much as a lot of people do these things, there are some who believe in things that should be totally ignored. We're talking about the kind of hair myths that people tend to trust and lose their way to take good care of their hair. We're here to give you a few basic hair myths that you should absolutely stop believing in.
- Using the same shampoo will make it stop working for your hair eventually. You don't need to change shampoos to achieve the kind of healthy hair you wish on. Although, if you have freshly coloured hair, you need to switch to an ideal moisturizing shampoo. In other cases, you can very much stick to your favourite shampoo for as long as you wish to.
- Frequently trimming your hair will make your hair grow faster. This isn't true as the ends of your hair are nowhere related to the follicles in your scalp. Research says that hair grows an average of a quarter-inch every single month regardless of you getting a trim or not. You must for sure get the split ends trimmed to reduce hair fall, however it won't help in growing your hair.
- Brushing your hair several times a day will maintain the health of your hair. You must have heard that rigorous brushing of hair will improve blood flow in your scalp and in turn boost hair growth. Although, none of this is true. Brushing your hair too much will only case friction on hair which will lead to cuticle damage and breakage. This can also make your hair frizzy and lusterless.
- Cold water adds shine to your hair. Now, hair contains no living cells and it for sure doesn't react to cold or hot water. You can use conditioners and styling products at times that contain oils and silicone to smooth down the cuticles. However, you must limit the use of heating machines on your hair as well as frequent dyeing.
