Did your mother always tell you to dry your hair before going to bed? Do you remember how she made you brush your hair a 100 times before retiring to bed? Did you ever start asking what’s with all these rules?
It’s really hard not to follow the rules that were instilled in your mind when you were young. But at some point in time, you’ll start wondering, you’ll become skeptic and start searching for answers on your own. You have probably heard tons of hair myths already. A piece of advice, don’t believe everything you hear even things you hear from your mom. Being a little skeptic could be beneficial to you.
Have You Been Believing in Hair Myths?
Never lay your head on your pillow with your hair wet as you’ll get bald.
This is surely one of the most popular hair myths we have. Different cultures get to share this odd myth. It’s not true that you’ll go bald if you sleep with a wet hair. Many non-believers attest to this.
Brushing your hair 100 times a day will make it more shiny.
This has been popularized even more because it was mentioned in fairy tales. Maybe in the fairy tale world its’ possible, but in the real world, it’s not going to happen. Brushing your hair is not responsible for making your crowning glory shiny. Applying essential oils such as the Moroccan Argan oil will do the trick. This oil often called the liquid gold of Morocco helps repair hair damage, thus making it shinier and healthier looking.
Clean and wash your hair with shampoo every day.
Shampooing your hair every day will actually dry it out. Your hair has its natural oils to protect itself from dryness and dullness. Shampooing it every day will only remove the oils and make it drier. Washing it at least 3-4 times a week is more advisable. A good conditioner is a good alternative while you’re not using shampoo. A conditioner could help lock in the moisture that your hair needs.
Cut your split ends yourself to prevent it from spreading.
Okay so this one is very obvious, your split end is not a disease. It doesn’t spread. Cutting it with your own pair of scissors would definitely contribute to the problem especially when your scissors are not sharp enough and you actually are doing the cutting wrong. Have a regular trim every month to remove split ends. Regular application of the Moroccan Argan oil will also help in preventing split ends. The oil is packed with essential fatty acids or EFAs. EFAs strengthen the protein bonding structure of the hair making each strand stronger and helping in healing split ends.
Cutting your hair will make it grow faster or slower.
Obviously you have two contradicting results from a single action. But which one is correct? The answer is none. Cutting your hair won’t make it grow faster nor make it slower. If you want your lovely locks growing at a faster rate, try taking oral supplements for the hair. Make sure they get the nourishment they need. Regular application of the liquid gold of Morocco will help!. It holds nutrients essential for hair growth as well as hair repair!
