7 Haircare Myths Debunked

Beauty myths have been there for centuries and are so ingrained in our minds that we believe them without much thinking. People blindly believe in these traditional tips and myths without realizing that the technology used to make these products in the past has changed a lot.

Here are 7 haircare myths that we hear from people:

1. Plucking a grey hair grows more:

It’s true that you cannot avoid getting grey hair and you’ll get them inevitably as you age. But pulling out grey hair doesn’t cause more grey hair to grow.

2. Split ends can be repaired:

Once the ends of hair have split, you cannot put them back together. The key to split-end management is to prevent them and get regular trims to cut them off. Excessive brushing, chemical damage, and heat-styling can cause split ends, hence it is important to limit the use of such styling hair products and tools.

3. Cutting your hair frequently makes it grow faster:

Cutting your hair frequently doesn’t really affect the rate of growth, even though regular trims might help keep your ends healthy. Hence, try to cut only when necessary as trimming too often could make your growth appear stagnant.

4. A cold rinse keeps hair shiny and frizz-free:

Giving freshly washed hair a final rinse with cool water does not keep it shiny, seal the cuticle or prevent frizziness. Cold water can temporarily help the hair look shiny, but the effect instantly wears off after blow-drying, towel-drying, or intense styling.

5. Sleeping with braids makes your hair grow faster:

Sleeping with braids does not make them grow faster, in fact braiding your hair that often can actually damage it since it can break it and lead to weak hair, split ends, and damages your follicles, preventing healthy growth.

6. Washing your hair too often leads to dryness:

Washing your hair too often does not lead to dryness. Hair can be cleaned as often as you like without dryness, provided you use the proper products to hold moisture. In fact, the stripping shampoos and the conditioners we use that are to blame. Actually, if you are using the appropriate moisturizing and conditioning products at wash time, it will actually increase your hair’s hydration.

7. Brushing a lot makes hair healthy and shiny:

Although individual strands of hair are strong, brushing more than required is much more likely to cause extreme breakage and damage than to leave you with shinier and thicker hair.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
