8 Hair Myths Busted

So, where to start you ask? Here are our top 8 hair myths BUSTED, so you can start ace-ing your hair game…  

You’ve probably heard various hair tips, tricks and advice from many people over the years. Did you know that a lot of common beliefs around hair are not actually true? When it comes to your hair health, it’s important to have the right information, so that you can establish a hair care regimem that’s effective and suitable for you and your hair type.   

So, where to start you ask? Here are our top 8 hair care myths BUSTED, so you can distinguish fact from fiction and start ace-ing your hair game…  

Trimming your hair will stop it from growing

This is absolutely not true. In fact, you should try to regularly trim your hair to get rid of split ends and single strand knots, which ultimately helps to maintain the condition of the hair. 

You need to wash your hair every day

This is so unnecessary. Overwashing your hair actually strips it of its essential oils, completely drying it out. However, you should definitely wash it regularly to keep it clean and avoid any product build up in your scalp. Make sure you use a deep conditioner or a hair mask as part of your hair washing routine and ensure all product is washed out. 

It doesn't matter what shampoo you use

Yes, yes it does. The whole purpose of shampoo is to cleanse your hair of any dirt and impurities, whilst keeping it fresh and revitalised. However, you should definitely be using the right shampoo for your hair needs. There are so many different brands and shampoos out there that target different hair types, with a variety of ingredients. 

Conditioner weighs down fine hair

Now this one is half true – some conditioners are known to weigh down your hair, and some don’t. When applying conditioner, apply throughout the middle of your hair and down to the tips, avoiding applying product around the scalp area. Don’t over focus on your roots when your ends need as much love as they can get. 

Frizzy hair can be tamed by wetting hair

This isn’t true and those of you with natural frizz will know it’s not that easy. Wetting the hair can actually make the hair so much harder to control, tapping into your natural frizz and encouraging the curls. To combat frizz, use an anti-frizz product such as a spray, serum or leave-in conditioner to help control your hair. 

Hair doesn't grow in the summer

FALSE. Heat is actually known to encourage and promote hair growth, whilst hair is thought to grow 10-15% more in the summer season. Get ready for that post-summer glow up! 

Women can't experience hair loss

This is untrue. Some women can experience hair loss as a result of several different lifestyle factors, which can include hormonal changes, extreme dieting, stress, genetics and medical conditions.  

You can skip using a conditioner

Nope. A conditioner is an essential part of any haircare regimen. No matter what your hair type or texture, a conditioner can help to detangle hair and provide extra. nourishment and treatment.
