Not because it’s on the internet means that it’s true. 🤯
Here are some common misconceptions to avoid when caring for your hair.
💆🏽♀️ Never shampoo- if you never use shampoo, you run the risk of severe product build up coating the scalp and strands. Which can lead to all type of problems like dandruff, breakage, dry, dull hair.
✂️ Never trim your ends- if you never get a trim, you’re doing more harm than good. Why? Because split ends can travel up the hair shaft. When this happens, the entire strand becomes damaged. Getting regular trims, helps manage a healthy mane. So just do it. How often is up to you but don’t skip it.
🧈 Grease your scalp- the scalp is a living organism that needs to breathe. What grease, that is made of petroleum does is create a barrier on the scalp that prevents moisture from getting in or out. This creates a breathing ground for all sorts of problems like bacteria, build up and dandruff.
🙈 Dirty hair grows faster- Simply put, I don’t know where in the world we got this one from. 🤦🏾♀️ It just makes me want to scratch my head, literally.
⛔️ Black hair doesn’t grow- if you’re alive then your hair is growing. If you’re retaining length depends on your hair care regimen or other factors like illnesses or medication. Black hair doesn’t grow is simply not true.
➰ Your hair becomes immune to products- False! If you’re cleansing and conditioning your hair regularly, all products should work the same. Hair is dead, so it cannot become immune. It can however get heat damaged, and no amount of product will curl damaged hair.
