11 Hair Myths That Prevent Us From Growing Long and Healthy Hair

Posted on

9: Both shampoo and conditioner should be applied to the entire hair length.

In fact, shampoo is a product for cleansing not the hair but the scalp, and that is why it should be applied to the roots. The foam and shampoo leftovers that are on the hair while rinsing will be enough to cleanse the whole hair length.

However, it’s vice versa with conditioner: you should apply it only to the hair itself. Hair roots are naturally healthier and get oily much quicker, and so the moisturizing effect of a conditioner is not needed.

8: Blow drying spoils hair.

In fact, hair dryers, as well as different hair curlers, negatively affect only “bare hair” — hair that is not protected by any styling products. If you use special cosmetic products for hair styling, such as a hair foam or some kind of a thermal protection, you don’t need to worry about the health of your hair.

7: The more you cut your hair, the faster it grows.

Since hair grows from the roots and not from the ends, a haircut doesn’t affect growth speed in any way. In addition, contrary to popular belief, shaving your head doesn’t affect hair density since the number of hair follicles is a genetic trait.
