5 common hair care myths busted

1. Cutting your hair often will make them grow faster

Trimming your hair doesn’t affect hair growth in any way. Damaged and frayed ends may cause your hair to look thin and will also weaken them. Thus, getting a trim every 2 months is a good idea. It will just give your hair a fuller fresh look, but will not make them grow faster.

2. Shampooing increases hair shedding and hair loss

Since we shed hair in the shower, it is often associated with shampooing. Hair shedding and hair loss can be due to many reasons – use of excessive heat styling tools, vitamin deficiency, stress, environmental factors, illness etc.

If you think that by cutting down shampooing you can solve this problem, it will only make things worse. Itchy scalp, sebum build up, and inflammation can cause various scalp problems. Losing a few strands of hair while brushing or shampooing is normal, but if you notice excessive hair loss, we recommend you consult a dermatologist.

3. The more you brush your hair, the healthier they’ll be

The age old tale of brushing through your hair 100 times a day is nothing but a myth. Excessive brushing may cause more harm than good. It can damage your hair cuticles, so stick to your usual brushing routine and don’t overdo it.

5. Washing your hair every day makes it dry

We live in such a hot and humid country that sometimes it becomes inevitable to wash our hair every day. The trick is to choose the right products. If you’re someone who washes her hair every day, make sure to pick a mild, sulphate free, and paraben free shampoo. Also, deep condition your hair twice a week.
