Get Ready to be Surprised!

We all want gorgeous, luscious hair that turns heads wherever we go. But with all the information out there, it's easy to fall for hair myths that aren't doing us any favors. Let's dig into these 10 hair myths that are finally being demystified. Prepare to be amazed!


1️⃣ Myth: Not washing your hair before a colour.

Reality: Gone are the days of avoiding washing your hair before a color treatment. The advancements in hair color technology have made it safer and more beneficial to come in with clean hair. Here's why:

Non-ammonia colors are much gentler on the scalp and hair. Washing your hair before coloring allows the color to penetrate effectively, giving you stunning and long-lasting results.

Products like dry shampoos and color sprays can create a barrier that prevents the color from evenly covering gray hair or achieving your desired shade. Starting with clean hair eliminates product buildup and provides a clean canvas for the color to work its magic.


2️⃣ Myth: Cutting your hair makes it grow thicker.

Reality: The thickness of your hair is determined by your hair follicles, which are not affected by cutting. However, regular trims can make your hair appear healthier by eliminating split ends and promoting better overall hair condition.


3️⃣ Myth: Brush your hair 100 times a day for shiny locks.

Reality: While brushing your hair can distribute natural oils from the scalp, excessive brushing can damage your hair cuticles and lead to breakage. Brush gently and opt for a detangling brush for detangling.


4️⃣ Myth: Shampooing every day is a must.

Reality: Washing your hair every day can strip away its natural oils, leaving it dry and prone to damage. Unless you have an excessively oily scalp, you can reduce shampooing to 1 to 2 times a week.


5️⃣ Myth: Gray hair will multiply if you pull one out.

Reality: Plucking out a gray hair won't lead to more gray hairs growing in its place. However, it's best to leave them be and embrace the natural aging process to avoid potential damage to the follicle.


6️⃣ Myth: Split ends can be repaired.

Reality: Once your hair strand splits, there's no magical cure to repair it completely. Trimming regularly is the only way to get rid of split ends and maintain healthy hair.


7️⃣ Myth: Coloring your hair causes permanent damage.

Reality: While excessive bleaching or using harsh chemicals can damage your hair, choosing the right hair color and using quality products can minimize damage and keep your hair healthy.


8️⃣ Myth: Brushing wet hair helps prevent breakage.

Reality: Wet hair is more prone to breakage, so brushing right after a shower can cause damage. Instead, gently pat dry your hair with a towel and comb through starting from the ends.


9️⃣ Myth: The more you shampoo, the more your hair will grow.

Reality: Shampooing has no direct impact on hair growth. A balanced diet, proper hair care, and a healthy lifestyle are the key factors affecting hair growth.


🔟 Myth: Skipping conditioner reduces greasiness.

Reality: Conditioning is essential to maintain healthy hair, regardless of your hair type. While it's important to choose the right conditioner for your hair, skipping it altogether can lead to dryness and breakage.


Now that we've debunked these common hair myths, you can make informed decisions about your hair care routine. Remember, what works for one person may not work for another, so listen to your hair's unique needs.
