The More You Brush, the Better You’ll Look
You’ve probably heard that for healthy hair, you will need to brush 100 strokes a day. Not so! Rigorous brushing does not distribute natural oils from your scalp or stimulate blood flow to encourage growth. The truth is that brushing can cause friction, leading to cuticle damage and breakage. Keep your hair brushing to a minimum or use a wide-tooth comb to cut down on the hair stress.
You Need To Keep Changing Shampoo Brands
You don’t need to switch shampoo brands to keep your hair clean. Using the same shampoo over and over again won’t stop it from working! However, if you have recently colored your hair, you might want to use shampoos that are more moisturizing. Patrick Taleb Salon, in Weston, Florida carries a wide variety of Kérastase that can help.
Cutting Often Leads to Faster Growth
Cutting the ends of your hair will not affect the follicles in your scalp. Hair grows at a quarter of an inch per month not matter how frequently you cut it. Keeping ends healthy and trimming split ends will, however, make your hair look healthier and longer.
Cold-Water Rinse Equals Shiny Locks
The myth has always been that cold water seals the hair follicle and in turn makes it reflect light, creating a shiny appearance. Hair, however, does not react to cold or hot water. This one is totally busted!
Shampooing Less Will Lead to Less Oil
This one is our favorite. We so wanted it to be true! Unfortunately, no matter how frequently you shampoo, your scalp will always produce the same amount of oil.
The moral of the story: wash and trim your hair to your preference. Don’t let any of these myths stop you from your normal hair care routine!
