Reading in the dark leads to blindness! The average adult needs 8 hours of sleep per day; oily foods lead to acne—and all the other jazz that comes with life’s mysteries.
As human beings, we’re curious about the way our body and mind works. But as they say, curious killed the cat, we’re no different. While it’s good to be interested in how our body functions, this has led to misconceptions and myths that actually harm us.
A lot of us believe the false notations than researching the truth. This is especially true when it comes to our hair. Growing up, you’ve probably heard (and perhaps believed) several myths about hair growth and loss.
We’ve rounded up a few hair myths. Which ones have you been a victim of?
Trimming Hair Makes it Grow
This is a common myth believed by many women. Trimming your hair does not make your hair grow. In fact, it shortens the length. The reason why you’re always asked to come back for a hair trim every 3 months is because our hair grows an inch every month.
On the other hand, trimming hair is important, not because it can help your hair grow but because it helps get rid of limp and dull hair that leads to split ends!
Shaving Your Hair Helps it Grow Back Thicker
This is a myth that often targets young adults. Many people are led to believe that when you shave your head, the new hair will be thick and healthy.
Remember that episode of Seinfeld where Jerry shaves his chest, despite everyone around him warning him that his chest hair will grow back thick? While the myth is shown to be true on TV, in real life, it’s false.
Just think about it. If that really worked, everyone facing problems with baldness would shave their hair as the solution!
Organic Hair Oils Damage Hair
Not only is this one not backed up by any evidence, it also doesn’t make sense. Organic hair oils don’t contain any chemicals so it would be strange that they would cause damage to the scalp and hair.
It’s actually the opposite. Hair oils help nourish the scalp, providing it with the essential nutrients it needs to make hair grow strong, luscious, and beautiful.
