Untangling Hair Myths!

Untangling Hair Myths!
Do regular trims make hair grow faster?
And does stress really cause gray hair? 

Let’s sort fact from fiction… 

Myth #1: Cutting Hair Makes It Grow Faster 

Fiction. Haircuts don't make hair grow faster, but they're helpful! Regular trims prevent split ends and breakage, keeping ends healthy for longer. And isn’t preventing hair damage always a smart move?


Myth #2: You Should Brush Your Hair 100 Times a Day 

Fiction. Overbrushing can break and harm your hair, especially if you're using the wrong brush. Invest in a wide-tooth comb and a long widely-spaced brush—and never brush your hair wet.


Myth #3: Cold Rinse = Glossy Hair 

Fiction. While cold water can help seal the cuticles, enhancing shine, it won’t permanently alter hair texture or health. It can, however, prevent blood from flowing freely and stop nutrients from getting to your scalp.


Myth #4: Stress Can Turn Hair Gray

Fact. Stress does cause gray hair as confirmed by a recent University of Columbia study. The silver lining? Eliminating psychological stress can restore hair color—but only if the graying was caused by stress.


Myth #5: It’s a Good Idea To Shampoo Every Day

Fiction. Hair care isn't one-size-fits-all. Of course, you want to keep your hair and scalp clean, since dirt prevents healthy growth. But always consider your hair type. For dry hair, shampoo breaks help natural oils nourish your locks. 

Crush those myths, stay ahead, and let your locks slay!
