Ladies, we all are highly concerned about the health of our hair. And we all desire to have long and shiny hair. But often you fail to grow your hair long and strong. Do you know why? In most cases, you become a victim of hair myths. Yes, there are several hair myths that we women believe in. It really costs us our hair.
In this New Year, take the pledge to stop believing those hair myths and step up to make your hair beautiful.
Here, are few myths about hair fall that you need to stop following:
Myth 1: Fast hair growing products are helpful:
Never rely on them! These products are nothing but a waste of money. Though the fast hair growth products look convincing, they actually are not all helpful. The rate of hair growth is generally a genetic trait and there is no way to speed up the process. Normally, your hair grows at the speed of 1cm per month. That means even the most powerful hormonal drugs will fail to speed up your hair growth. Well, how come these cheap remedial products be solving your problem? The truth is they don’t do any good to your hair in reality! As a matter of fact, these products can accelerate your hair fall in return.
Myth 2- Hair fall is unnatural:
Do you believe in science? If you do then you must know that our hair goes through a special stage called Telogen, twice a year during spring and monsoon. During this period, our hair follicles become inactive and they stop growing. As a result, the rate of hair fall increases during this period. So, the point is there is nothing to freak out if you are experiencing hair fall. In most cases, it is natural. Plus, we lose 150-200 strands of hair on a regular basis. And if you are worried, consult a trichologist for real help.
Myth 3: Apply shampoo and conditioner for your entire length of hair:
Girls, shampoo and conditioner are two separate products. You know that, right? Why are you using them in the similar fashion then? See, shampoo is only meant to cleanse your scalp thoroughly, thus apply it from the roots. There is no need to apply it to the entire length of your hair. On the other hand, conditioner is meant for your hair, so apply it to all-over the length. Yes, it is that simple!
Myth 4- Blow drying spoils your hair:
This is the biggest lie one can believe in. Never believe in all these bluffs. The blow dryer is similar to your other hair styling products. Actually, blow drying only affects your bare hair which is not protected by any product. However, if you use any special product like hair foam or thermal protection products then you do not need to worry about any damage.
Myth 5- Keratin straightening is best for your hair:
Of course, it adds a visual appeal to your hair. But never believe on the part that says it is good for your hair. After all, it renders you that shiny wow look that you have been searching for a long time. Earlier, the formula for Keratin straightening used to contain formaldehyde, a compound that is used to preserve dead bodies for autopsies. Though the amount of formaldehyde in the formula has been reduced to a negligible amount, it still destroys the hair follicle structure. So, do not ever think of Keratin straightening.
Myth 6- Ponytails or buns provoke hair loss:
Well, it does only if you tighten your hair so hard that it pains. Otherwise, it has nothing to do with hair fall. Stop tightening your hair, you will stop suffering. Moreover, girls, you look beautiful in your ponytails!
Myth 7- Brunettes are lucky than Blondes:
Actually, it is false! In fact, quite, it is quite the opposite. The blondes are luckier than brunettes. At least, the scientists say so. However, their hair is thinner. Thus, no one is a loser and no one is a gainer. It is a tie.
Well, stop believing in these myths! Take care of your hair and grow it long, healthy as well as strong. Your hair is your pride and you can only make it healthy by not giving in to these myths.
