Recently I’ve dyed my hair back to black after being blonde for almost 3 years, I’ve done Brazilian treatment and recently did a protein treatment as well. I can say I’ve pushed my hair’s boundaries, I’ve damaged my hair too much so I would consider myself well-informed with all the hair damaging procedures. I won’t call myself a hair expert but I think I can honestly say what’s real and what’s not in the book of hair myths, so here’s my take on the truths of these myths.
- Dyeing your hair too much will make you bald.
If I got a dollar for every time I heard this sentence, I would be rich. The truth in this myth is that, your hair will fall out but not THAT much that you would be bald.
- Trimming your hair will make it longer.
I don’t know the logic of this myth exactly, I mean technically you are cutting your hair so obviously it’ll be shorter. Here’s my take on this one, cutting the ends of the hair to eliminate the split ends or any breakage happening will make your hair look better OBVIOUSLY … but it won’t make your hair all the sudden grow faster.
- Fancy hair products work better for your hair
I’ve tried a massive variety of hair products, and I do mean a looooooooooooooooot. Here’s what I found out, hair products don’t help your hair as much as food does. It’s all about what you eat, this is why those hair pills are getting popular. They give you the nutrition that you can originally get from food but in more focused levels.
And always remember conditioner is your best friend whether in make your hair silky smooth or using it as a shaving cream (trust me it works perfectly).
