Chances are, if you’re reading this blog, you also spend a lot of time learning about hair growth, hair restoration, how to prevent hair loss and how to keep it healthy. There are countless websites and articles claiming to have the “solution” for flawless hair. Yet, how can you differentiate fact from fiction? We’ve done the research for you and are busting some of the most common hair care myths.
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.
Truth: Damaged ends make your hair look thinner and cause breakage. When you cut them off, your hair appears fuller. While trimming your hair doesn’t affect the rate of its growth, experts recommend trimming it every 6 to 8 weeks.
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.
Truth: Over time your hair will become weaker if it’s plucked too much over time. Additional grays will appear with age, regardless of plucking them or not.
Truth: Male pattern baldness is caused by genetics. It is triggered by high testosterone and stress levels as well.
When it comes to hair care, focus on the quality of care by committing to products and tips that are backed by research and provide proven results.
