Around the world of beauty there is a huge amount of myths and popular beliefs that have been passed from generation to generation. Some of them are true, such as the fact that you should not rub your hair with the towel, however, there are many others that are completely false.
These are the 10 Myths about hair care that you should not believe
1- The more you cut your hair, the faster it grows
The hair grows from the roots, never from the ends, therefore cutting them will not influence the speed with which they grow. However, when you cut them, they will look healthier and your hair prettier.
2- Dry your hair in the air is better than drying it with a dryer
If you have short hair, you probably do not need a hairdryer, however, if you have a lot or you have it very long, it is important that you dry it well so that moisture does not penetrate the hair fibers. If you leave your hair wet for a long time, it will become more brittle and brittle.
3- Hair "gets used" to shampoos
This is false. In fact, it is not good to change shampoo frequently since it alters the pH of the scalp.
4- If you have dry scalp you are more likely to have dandruff
It is completely the opposite. Dandruff usually appears when the scalp is oily.
5- Taking good care of the hair you can "close" the split ends
Using oils and products that regenerate the hair fibers can be used to hydrate the hair, but the tips will continue to be damaged until the courts.
6- Hair combing frequently will help to smooth it
The only thing you will do by doing this is to eliminate its essential oils and weaken it. Comb your hair only when it is necessary.
7- If you hydrate your hair you will increase its thickness
The thickness of the hair is given by genetics, therefore you can not alter it in any way.
8- If you take off a hair you will get 3 more
Since the amount of hair a person has does not depend on the care, it is impossible that if you pull a hair you will grow 3. However, it is better that you do not do it since you can damage the hair follicle.
9- Cold water closes the hair cuticle
Hair is formed by dead tissue, neither cold nor hot water can affect the condition of the cuticle.
10- If you use more shampoo the hair will be cleaner
The amount of shampoo can vary with the length and density of the hair. In general, a spoonful is enough, but keep in mind that too much foam can dry out the scalp.
All these myths are completely false, so you should not believe in them.
