Hair Myths and Lies You Can Hear From Hairstylists

With many women experience, it seems that some hairstylists want to give commands and rules around that we should maybe ignore for good. We have stood out some of the common hair lies and tales women have heard.


Drugstore products are all harmful

If you’ve ever been ashamed at the hairstyle salon for using your same shampoo for years, remember this: Not everyone has money to allow an expensive cosmetic product, not even a desire.

The hair professionals suggest that if you love the results that you get from your shampoo, there is nothing to be ashamed of. The most important thing you should know is to read the ingredients and the label of the product. Just because a product is expensive doesn’t mean it is good for your type of hair.

It is good to educate yourself or ask your hairstylist about anti-aging products if you use hot tools or color your hair, because it can contribute to free-radical damage your hair and aging, which leads to split ends.

You must cut hair every six weeks

The most often hair rule, you are going to hear from almost every hairstylist is to get a cut every four to six weeks. That`s all good if you can afford yourself often visiting salons.

Also, not every woman needs that often hair cut and it all depends on the state of your hair and what you want to do with it. In fact, women who barely heat-style or color their hair can go for 5 – 6 months without a hair cut.

If you’re prone to split ends and want to keep growing your hair, in that case it is good to visit hairstyle salons more often.

Washing your hair every day is bad for your hair  

The truth about washing hair every day is: Any damage or dryness from your everyday shampooing can not be compared to the damage from the extra heat styling that goes after. So if you’re washing and conditioning your hair everyday, but then you do air-drying of the hair, you don’t have to worry.

An extra tip for those who shampoo their hair every day: Shampoo and wash it very gently, and always look for a super-natural and gentle shampoo such as John Masters Organics Zinc & Sage Shampoo with Conditioner and Paul Mitchell Thickening Shampoo, Lemon Sage, 10.14 Ounce, that contains essential oils that will condition your hair at the same time.

Never cut your split ends yourself

Actually, you can cut your split ends yourself  only if you have a simple haircut and prone to split ends.  Remember that you will need super sharp and hair-specific scissors. Forget the kitchen shears and blunt scissors that can actually split the hair even more, and cause more damage to your hair.

Brushing your hair is good

Many women believe in the hair myth of 100 brush strokes a day for healthy and good looking hair. However, brushing hair may lead to distributing your hair’s natural oils. Natural oils are good for your hair, and brushing your hair excessively is bad. If you have fine, curly, or fragile hair, the damage caused from brushing may not be worth it. It is better not to brush the scalp’s oils all the way to the ends of your hair, and start to invest in some specific hair moisturizer.
