Let’s face it ladies, when it comes to our physical aspect, our hair is one of our biggest assets and this is why during the years and multitude of funny myths and legends have been created regarding the finished results.
There aren’t two women that have the same identical hair structure, size and shape. Some have curly hair, some have straight hair and others simply have a mixture of these two. Let’s not forget that women like to change their hair color each time they need a significant change in their lives so this is why some are blondes, redheads, brunettes or other strange colors. We are all different and we are proud of that.
Leaving these differences aside, we should admit that there is one common desire that will make us follow the strangest methods and legends: we all wish to have a shiny, natural and smooth hair. This is the reason we have created a list of the 7 most funny and strange myths that have appeared during the years. Let’s see if there is a slight piece of truth behind some of them. Here they are:
1. The hair will grow thicker and faster if you cut it more often
The reality is that it grows with the same speed even if you cut it once in a while or as often as possible. In general, the hair tends to be thicker on the roots rather than at the ends, and this is why when you cut it you will have the impression of having more volume.
2. Split ends may be repaired without cutting your hair
The only real treatment that can help you get rid of those nasty split ends is to use a really sharp scissors. It is true that there is a multitude of treatments and masks that do a great job protecting and keeping your hair healthy, but once it has been damaged, there are no treatments that can help.
3. You have to wash your hair on a daily basis.
This actually depends on your hair texture. Some wash it daily and others believe that by doing so, it will only make their hair excessively dry. In general, the hair must be washed once you notice that he start losing his natural aspect.
4. The hair mustn’t be washed more than once a week
Amazing how there can be 2 myths that are talking about the same things, yet they are so different. As it is mentioned above, you should wash your hair once you feel the need by using a shampoo that suits your hair type.
5. If the hair has a tendency to get oily, you shouldn’t wash it often
If you follow this myth, you will have serious negative results. An oily hair will deteriorate if it is left unwashed for too long. The explication is quite simple: if the hair is not washed properly and all the impurities have been removed, it will stop the secretion of your hair’s natural oil, thus becoming drier and fragile.
6. When you brush your hair, you have to brush it 100 times
You should brush your hair until it becomes untangled and smooth. Although it is said that brushing helps spread the natural oil throughout the surface of the hair, it is recommended to use it as it is necessary.
7. Staying on your head will prevent losing your hair
Seems stupid, right? The logic behind this myth is that by standing on your head, it will improve the blood circulation thus helping the hair grow. The reality is that hair needs so much more than a good quantity of blood, to keep growing. All you will be able to obtain by following this myth is a great gymnast ability.
