Hello fam, back here with yet another blog but this time it is kind of different than what I usually blog about. Today I’m here to break 5 hair myths that you believe and need to get over with. So, let’s get right on it!
NUMBER 1. Dandruff < Dry scalp
If you have those white little flakes in your hair then it does not mean you have dry scalp. White flakes in your hair means you have dandruff, period. “My scalp is dry and when its dry it gets flaky” well honey I’m sorry to break it to you but you have dandruff, straight dandruff. No matter how big or small flakes you have, it is dandruff and not dry scalp. Just use a shampoo that treats the dandruff in your hair.
NUMBER 2. You need to shampoo your hair everyday to keep it clean.
No no no! No, you do not need to and should not shampoo everyday to keep your hair clean. Shampooing everyday just strips off your hair’s natural tendency to produce oils and nutrients and just makes them undernourished and damaged. If you think shampooing every day makes your hair clean then no dear, your hair is just getting more and more unhealthy day by day. If your everyday routine exposes your hair to dirt then try and shampoo your hair after every 2 days instead of shampooing them every day. And if your hair is not exposed to dirt very often then my advice would be to shampoo your hair twice a week. You can wash your hair (with water) more than that if you want to but don’t shampoo very often. (I shampoo once a week, judge me all you want but my hair is better that way).
NUMBER 3. Hair treatments are bullsh*t.
No, they are not. Not all hair treatments are bullsh*t. Some are actually very advantageous and healthy but you should consult a doctor before going for any treatment. You need to see how heavy is your hair problem and only then you should go in for a treatment, that too after a doctor’s consultation.
NUMBER 4. Plucking a grey hair will grow 3 more grey hair.
No. In our hair there are cells which produce pigments and when these cells stop producing pigments our hair turns grey. Plucking a grey hair does not however affect the cells in other follicles. BUT interesting side note if you smoke cigarettes, you are 4 times more likely to go grey prematurely and experience hair loss, which is another great reason to quit other than the whole lung cancer reason.
NUMBER 5. Hair products are the reason why people go bald or loose hair.
This is FALSE. When you are applying hair products you are a lot of times going to have hair on your hands. On average, we lose 100 hairs a day, so if you just go through your hair with your hand you will have one or two hair, do it again and you’ll see one or two more. You’re going to lose 100 hairs a day, this doesn’t mean you are balding and the hair product you are using won’t make you go bald faster. With that being said all hear products are definitely not created equally, if you are using a crappy product, with high alcohol content, chances are your hair is going to become more dry, more damaged and more brittle, it doesn’t mean you’re going to go bald, it just means you’re going to have crappy hair.
And with that ladies and gentlemen we totally debunked the sh*t out of 5 stupid hair myths!
So, with this I’m officially signing off for the day if you find this blog helpful then drop a like and comment down below if you want me to bring forward some good types of hair products.
