15 Hair Care Myths-Truth and Lying

Everyone has a favorite myth about hair care – and we usually never run counter to a good myth! In this article, we will look at some of the best known and the realities behind the myth. 15 Hair Care Myths-Truth and Lying

Excessive washing of hair causes hair loss/dryness.

FALSE: The frequency of washing does not damage the hair. We recommend 3 times a week, but wash as many times as you like. Shampoo that matches your hair type and texture will actually moisturize your hair and add body and beauty.


  1. More shampoo = cleaner hair.

FALSE: Don’t waste your shampoo! For long hair, a glass of shampoo, about a quarter of the size, is usually sufficient. Very long hair can take a little longer.

  1. Conditioner helps repair the split head.

FALSE: There is no conditioner that can “repair” damaged hair. What you can do is smooth the cuticle and make your hair look better. A good conditioner can also prevent damage from happening in the first place.

  1. Blow drying causes hair loss.

FALSE: Blow drying can hurt, burn or dry your hair and cause it to collapse, but it heals quickly. This is not permanent hair loss.

  1. Sleeping with wet hair causes mold on the scalp.

FALSE: Scalp and fungal disorders are not caught while sleeping on wet scalp. Scalp infections require prior involvement with sources of infection such as humans, contaminated hair care equipment or animals. Scalp fungi (Tinea capitis) mainly affect children, and their immune system makes them more susceptible to skin infections.

  1. To grow your hair, brush 100 strokes daily.

FALSE: Too much brushing can damage the cuticles in your hair. Not recommended! In fact, your hair reacts better to combs than to brushes. Brushes only tear the ends of the hair and break the hair.

  1. Sharpening of comb and brush can spread scalp disease.

True: Lice and other parasites can be sunk from scalp to scalp by sharing combs, brushes and other hair care tools.

  1. When you cut your hair, it grows faster and thicker.

15 Hair Care Myths-Truth and Lying

FALSE: This common misconception is due to the fact that short hair looks thicker at first because the roots are thicker than the tips. Hair cutting does not affect the growth rate or the overall biologically determined texture.

Fine hair, supple hair, and fine hair do not thicken in response to haircuts. Use volume-enhancing hair care products, try boring cuts to thicken your hair, and apply textured perms and color treatments to make your hair plummet.

  1. Color treatment causes hair loss.

FALSE: Most hair coloring products contain chemicals that, if not used properly, can cause serious damage to the hair itself, but do not cause hair loss.

  1. Salon products are the same as drug store products.

FALSE: With the exception of salons, salon products typically contain higher quality and more expensive ingredients designed to consistently deliver more intense cleaning, moisturizing and conditioning results. The high quality ingredients found in salon products are not usually found in drug store brands. In doubt – read the label.

  1. Prolonged exposure to sunlight favors hair loss.

FALSE: Your hair acts as a shield against the sun. Hair loss appears at the level of the hair follicle, so the sun needs to penetrate to this depth to do damage.

  1. Diet is associated with hair loss.

True: Generally, it is important to eat properly in order to be healthy. However, individual foods have not proven to be beneficial or harmful to hair.

  1. Stress causes hair loss.

True: Severe stress (eg surgery or death of a family) can halt hair production and cause temporary alopecia (alopecia areata). However, the scalp usually heals and the hair returns.

  1. Wearing blades, ponytails or buns can cause baldness.

True: Traction alopecia is a very common and realistic condition of hair loss among older African-American women. This is the result of prolonged wearing of tight ponytails, cornrows, or buns. Over time, cutting or losing hair as a result of tight and stressful styles can become permanent. Avoid this potential problem by choosing a loose style that reduces scalp tension.

  1. Smoking causes gray hair.

TRUE: According to an article in Science News (January 11, 1997), smokers are four times more likely to have gray hair than non-smokers, according to JG Mosley of Leigh Infirmary in Lancashire, England. To make matters worse, smoking is definitely associated with faster hair loss.
