Debunking Myths and Embracing Facts
We all dream of having lovely, long, thick and healthy hair, but there are so many myths out there that it's hard to know what to believe. Today, we'll be your hair myth-busters, separating fact from fiction and providing you with the truth to achieve and maintain the beautiful hair you truly deserve!
Let’s jump straight in…
Myth #1: Shampooing every day is necessary for clean hair
In reality, washing your hair daily can strip away its natural oils, leaving it dry and prone to damage. For most people, shampooing every other day or even every few days is often enough. This does depend on your hair type though, so finding a balance that works best for you is key!
Myth #2: Cold water makes your hair shinier
While cold water can help seal the hair cuticles and add some shine, the effect is sadly temporary. The best way to maintain lustrous locks is to use a nourishing conditioner after shampooing and protect your hair from excessive heat and UV exposure. So really, only good news here. You're now free to resume your beloved piping hot showers! You're welcome.
Myth #3: You should skip conditioner if you have greasy hair
Where has this one come from!? Greasy hair is often associated with overactive oil glands, leading many to believe that skipping conditioner is the solution. However, this couldn't be further from the truth!
Conditioner plays a vital role in hair care, regardless of your hair type. Instead of skipping it altogether, how about opting for a lightweight, oil-free conditioner specially formulated for greasy hair?
By using the right conditioner, you can nourish and hydrate your hair without weighing it down or exacerbating the oiliness. Proper conditioning helps maintain the health of both your hair and scalp, preventing tangles, and adding shine. Happy conditioning!
Myth 4: If you pluck one grey hair, two more will grow in its place
Ah, the old wives' tale that has caused many to think twice before plucking that pesky grey hair! Well, fear no more as this myth is simply not true! Plucking one grey hair won't result in the sprouting of two more in its place (phew).
However, pulling out your hair can cause damage to the hair follicle and lead to potential hair loss over time. So, it's best to resist the urge to pluck those greys and embrace them gracefully (however hard that might be).
Now that we've debunked those myths, let's delve into some hair facts that will guide you on your journey to achieving healthier and stronger hair!

It's so so important to use a heat protectant spray before using hot tools to shield your hair from the heat's harmful effects! A given, but sometimes we all need reminding!
Fact #4: On average, you lose around 100 hairs a day
Now, you might be thinking, "Oh no, a hundred hairs a day! I’ll have none left!!” But fear not, this is all part of the natural hair cycle!
Just like the changing seasons, our hair goes through cycles of growth, rest, and shedding. So, if you ever find a few hairs on your pillow or in the shower, don't fret! Your hair is just making room for some fresh and fabulous new ones. Embrace the magic of this everyday disappearing act and remember, it's all part of the wonderful dance of hair growth!
So, now we’ve debunked the myths and reinforced the facts for you, you should be ready to embrace proper hair care routines, suitable products, and the magic of the hair growth cycle. Remember, your hair is unique and deserves the best treatment tailored to its specific needs!
