We Girls give a lot of attention to the health of our hair, and we spend a lot of money to look our hair thick, lush, and shiny. But most of the times, it can be difficult to figure out which hair care products are worth buying and which pieces of advice are worth following. Hair is an essential part of a women’s beauty. Sometimes it can also be a hectic task to think which products are good and which are not.
Below are some myths about hair which you should stop believing immediately.
Cutting Hair Frequently Makes It Grow Faster & Longer
“Trimming your hair doesn’t affect growth,” says Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. “That happens at the scalp.” But there’s a reason experts suggest trimming your hair every six to eight weeks: “Frayed ends make hair look thinner and cause breakage, so when you cut them off, your hair appears fuller,” says Melissa Piliang, MD, dermatologist and hair specialist at the Cleveland Clinic.
If You Pluck One White Hair, Two Will Grow Back In Its Place
This one only seems true because one white usually means more white. “This myth probably started because people plucked one white hair, then noticed more afterwards,” says Dr Piliang. “Your hair will become weaker if it’s plucked too much over time, and it’ll eventually stop growing back,” warns Dr Piliang.
