Myth: Color treating your hair will cause damage

Truth: When you go darker and add color to your hair, it actually increases the appearance of thickness and volume.  However, avoid bleaching which can make each strand thinner and more prone to breakage.

Myth: Frequent hair cuts make your hair grow faster

Truth: Damaged ends make your hair look thinner and cause breakage.  When you cut them off, your hair appears fuller.  While trimming your hair doesnt affect the rate of its growth, experts recommend trimming it every 6 to 8 weeks.

Myth: Towel drying your hair is best

Truth: Rubbing your hair with a towel can take its toll on your hair, promoting breakage.  We recommend squeezing your hair with a towel, then combing it gently to remove excess water. 

Myth: Plucking a gray hair will make two grow back in its place

Truth: Over time your hair will become weaker if its plucked too much over time.  Additional grays will appear with age, regardless of plucking them or not.

Myth: Wearing hats causes hair loss

Truth: Male pattern baldness is caused by genetics.  It is triggered by high testosterone and stress levels as well.
