Hair Myths & Facts

by - March 08, 2016

We've all heard some ridiculous myths about hair, and recently I read this article about hair myths and decided to share it with you guys, just in case if you haven't known about it already. Some of the myths have been going on for years, here are some of them:

Myth No. 1: Cutting Hair Makes It Grow Faster and/or Thicker
False. Shorter hair often looks and feels thicker, but cutting your hair won’t alter its normal biologically determined growth rate or overall texture. Thin, limp or fine hair will not ever grow thicker in response to a haircut.
Solution: Plump up your hair by using volume enhancing hair
care products, experimenting with a hair fattening blunt cut or getting a texturizing perm or
color treatment.

Myth No. 2: Hair Grows Faster On Different Parts Of The Head
True. There is some scientific evidence that the growth rate of hair may vary on different parts of the head for select people. There is also some indication that the growth rate of hair on babies may be faster on the crown than on any other parts of the scalp. Usually the growth rate differences are very marginal and will not impact the hair appearance in any way.

Myth No. 3: Hair Will Always Remain The Same Texture
False. Although you may be born with straight, curly or wavy locks, there are many circumstances under which your hair’s ultimate texture can be permanently altered. Pregnancy, medication, chemotherapy, age and other variables can cause your texture to be temporarily or permanently altered.

Myth No. 4: Smoking Causes Gray Hair
True. According to J. G. Mosley of the Leigh Infirmary in Lancashire, England in an article in Science News (January 11, 1997) smokers are four times more likely to have gray hair than nonsmokers. Even worse, smoking has been conclusively linked to accelerated hair loss.

Myth No. 5: Washing Hair Every Day Dries It Out
False. The right shampoo for your hair type and texture will actually add moisture, body and beauty to your hair. The key is to finding the correct shampoo designed for your hair.

Myth No. 6: Wearing Tight Braids, Ponytails Or Buns Causes Baldness
True. Traction alopecia is a very real hair loss condition that may result from wearing tight ponytails, cornrows or buns over an extended period of time. Over time, hair breakage or loss as the result of tight, stressed styles, can become permanent. Avoid this potential problem by opting for looser styles that minimize scalp tension.

Myth No. 7: A Sunburnt Scalp Can Lead To Hairloss
True. Severe sunburn or a series of burns that occur over time may damage delicate hair follicles at the root level. People with a genetic predisposition towards hair loss may accelerate the onset of hair loss activity. Avoid scalp burns by applying sun protectio products to your scalp along with your hair.

Myth No. 8: Brushing Thinning Hair Makes It Fall Out Faster
False. As long as you use a good brush on your hair, normal daily brushing will not accelerate the normal loss of hair from the scalp. If your hair is suffering from a hair loss condition like alopecia brushing will only cause you to lose hair that is already.

All in all, I can't stress enough to tell you that hair is one of the most important part of your look like I mentioned in this post. And that's why I always remember to apply hair conditioner, vitamins and also hair serum like CG 210. I've been using CG 210 daily for about six months now, and the result is amazing, my hair is much stronger and healthier than ever.

I truly recommend CG 210 to anyone who has hair problems, or basically anyone who wants healthier and stronger hair :)
