We pay a lot of attention to the health of our hair, and we spend a lot of money making our hair look thick, lush, and shiny. However, sometimes it can be difficult to figure out which hair care products are worth buying and which pieces of advice are worth following.
Bixize figured out which popular statements about hair care you should stop believing.
11: Too many lost hairs is always bad.
Every day about 150-200 hairs fall from our head. However, twice a year, usually in spring and in fall, our hair goes through a phase called telogen (also known as the resting phase of the hair follicle). During this stage, it is not growing anymore and simply lies on our heads. This is why hairs then fall off in such big amounts. Then new hairs (the anagen stage) start to appear in the emptied hair follicles.
But if significant hair loss occurs more than twice a year and for longer than a month, you should definitely consider visiting a doctor.
10: There are products that can make your hair grow faster.
Even the most powerful hormonal drugs can’t force cells to divide at a higher speed, which is why no cosmetic products can make your hair grow faster. The growth speed is a genetic trait, and it is usually 1 cm per month.
