(1)Blow Drying Your Hair will cause you to lose it
Anything in excess is bad, so washing and hairdrying too often
will dry or burn the hair and contribute to split ends, but you
won't lose your hair, which is more a result of your levels of
stress and the balance of your nutrition.
(2)Brush your hair for ninety strokes each night to encourage
The nightly brushing ritual will neither harm nor encourage your hair.
You may see an increase in shine, but you can just as easily see an
increase in split ends. If you must add a ritual to the evening
procedure, combing will be gentler.
(3)Frequent haircuts stimulates growth and volume
No advantage nor disadvantage. Hair is thicker at the base, so shorter
hair seems to be thicker.
(4)Hair Coloring causes hair loss
You can harm your hair with frequently-used and improperly-used
chemicals, but you will not lose your hair.
(5)Excessive solar rays will destroy your hair
The sun acts like another kind of chemical. It can lighten your hair
and even dry it out, but you would have to irradiate the skin which
holds your hair follicles to damage hair growth.
(6)Stress can cause permanent hair loss
Stress can be very significant in causing temporary hair loss.
But when the source of your loss, usually in patches, has been
identified, then corrections to your lifestyle are in order. Your tresses
will bounce back like happy puppies. The same stress relief campaign
will aid your skin tone and hormones.
(7)Tight hair dos, like braids and cornrows cannot cause hair loss
Wrong. The condition of hair loss has been observed in subjects who
have employed the technique of tightening their hair over long periods
of time. Choose looser styles that do not stress the hair follicles and
allow the scalp to breathe.
(8)The more shampoo you use, the cleaner your hair
Use only the amount that allows you to create a lather so that you can
gently massage the scalp. More shampoo neither helps nor hurts, and is
just washed down the drain.
(9)Sharing combs and brushes is a harmless habit
Would you like to share your toothbrush? Never share a comb or brush
with friends or family. A child can be exposed to head lice and the
parasites can be readily transferring to other children, and even to
adults. Do not store hair grooming utensils together. Wash your
brushes and combs frequently. Never share with anyone. Keep an eye on
your children to make certain they haven't developed any bad habits
that can open the door to scalp parasites.
