Mythbusters: Hair Health 101

Are you tired of hearing conflicting advice about how to keep your hair healthy and luscious? With so many myths and misconceptions out there, it can be difficult to know what to believe. Today we’ll take a closer look at some of the most common hair health myths and bust them once and for all.

Myth #1: Cutting your hair frequently will make it grow faster.

Many people believe that cutting your hair regularly will help it grow faster. While this isn’t entirely false, it’s misleading. Hair grows from the root, so cutting the ends won’t have any effect on the rate at which it grows. That being said, getting regular trims can help keep your hair looking healthy and prevent split ends, which can make it appear shorter and more damaged.

Myth #2: Brushing your hair frequently will make it shinier.

This myth has been around for generations, but it’s just not true. Brushing your hair too much can actually cause damage by pulling on the strands and creating friction. While brushing your hair can help distribute natural oils throughout your strands, doing it excessively won’t make your hair any shinier. In fact, it can have the opposite effect by making it look dull and lifeless.

Myth #3: Using cold water to rinse your hair will make it shinier.

While it’s true that using cold water to rinse your hair can help seal the cuticle and prevent frizz, it won’t necessarily make your hair shinier. The key to shiny hair is healthy hair, which comes from a good diet, regular exercise, and the right hair care products.

Myth #4: Washing your hair every day is bad for it.

One size does NOT fit all! Washing your hair too often can dry it and cause frizz. However, if you’re using the right products, a conditioner or hair repair will reduce these effects. Dr. Leonard recommends washing hair daily with Copper Chemist Shampoo in order to clean the hair and stimulate the scalp. Then, use Copper Chemist Conditioner to moisturize and prevent breakage.

It’s important to separate fact from fiction. By debunking these common myths, you can make informed decisions about caring for your hair and keep it looking its best. Looking to upgrade your hair care routine?
