Hair Myths Debunked

Myth 1: Hair should not be shampooed everyday

shower-no-shampoo-japan-03

There is absolutely no correct schedule for shampooing your hair. Washing your mane is essential before it gets dirty, just like you would your skin. Grime and dust could actually damage your hair further when you comb it. Harsh products like soap can harm your hair but a good shampoo with conditioner will not only clean it, it will also improve the texture and shine – however often you wash it. The key here is to find the correct shampoo for your hair type. Expert hairstylist Dilshad Pastakia says, “Shampoo is merely a cleanser and as long it’s a mild one and use it just on your scalp, you can shampoo every day.”

Myth 2: Oiling will make your hair grow longer

Not true again, girls! Nothing lathered externally can nourish hair, or make it grow longer  than it naturally can. The oil coats each shaft of hair, but it’s only the oil that is shining and not your hair. Of course, an oil massage cools you down and makes it to every girl’s luxe needs. Oiling your hair for about 30 to 45 minutes once a week along with a hot towel routine allows the essential ingredients of the oil to soak into the scalp. This not only relaxes you but may work to give you smoother, more manageable hair. All other claims belong to the trash. Routine oiling of hair is not required as enough natural oils are produced by sebaceous glands. But the polluted environment and increased application of colour play havoc on your tresses. A weekly oil massage helps increase circulation of blood causing the sebaceous glands to do their job better!

Myth 3: A 100 strokes of brush for healthy hair

Baseless and doing this can actually result in brittle hair. As you brush, you damage the hair shaft. Just brushing two to three times to detangle is the way to go. Start at the ends of the hair, holding the strands about halfway up to prevent tugging at the root and pulling out the hair. This method also prevents  split ends. Excessive brushing can put such stress on your hair that it splits, breaks or gets uprooted more easily. Brushing your hair only helps to increase the blood circulation in your scalp. This in turn activates the sebaceous glands that produce sebum. So it is not the 100 strokes of the brush that helps hair remain healthy, but an activation of the glands. This activation can be achieved through less harsh methods such as a massage.
