We all like our hair and we want to keep it healthy and beautiful and that is completely fine. I am pretty sure that you have found yourself so many times surfing the web trying to find a solution for your hair problem. You may read so many articles about hair, but there are also so many myths you should know about. People tend to believe in everything, but you should be aware what are your sources of information! So, let’s see what are the myths you can forget about now!


Different types of drying

You have probably heard how air-drying is so much better for your hair than blow-drying. Well, the studies have shown how this is not the truth at all. How is that possible? Air-drying may put your hair in not so great position because wet hair tends to get damaged easier. What to do then? Do both types of drying. Let your hair to be dry at least 50%, and then blow-dry it.



Many people still believe how dandruff is the sign of a dry scalp. How many times have you heard that? Actually, the truth is completely opposite. Dandruff exists in the oily environment. So, stop washing your hair every day because it won’t eliminate dandruff at all. You can try with a medical shampoo that would help you with an oily scalp. Try to wash your hair every third day.


Trimming your hair

I hate this myth the most. If you trim your hair every six weeks as it is recommended, you won’t find yourself with a long hair. Trim your hair when you see that it is damaged.



How many times have you heard a story that graying is connected with stress? I used to believe in this myth too a long time ago. Now, the scientists have found that graying is not connected with stress, but with your genetics.


That sweet ponytail

If you wear ponytail too often your hair will start to fall out. This is also a myth you shouldn’t believe in. The hair falls out when the season is changing or when you are lacking some vitamins or minerals. Besides that, your hormone imbalance may be also the case why your hair is falling out. So, no, it is not the ponytail.


Grandma’s beauty tricks

Your granny may have told you how washing your hair in a cold water can make your scalp stronger. You can forget about that now because it is not the truth at all. What about combing your hair as often as you can? Yes, that is a myth too. Comb your hair twice per day instead.


Switching the hair products

Have your friend told you how she stopped using that shampoo because her hair was ”too tired” of it? This is not true at all. Your hair cannot get tired of any product. You don’t have to switch the products. It is just marketing trick.

      Wearing a ponytail won’t make your hair fall out. However it can and most likely will break your hair off at the elastic. Especially if your hair is very long. The longer the hair the more breakage occurs. This is because of the weight of the hair and the height of the ponytail. If you have lots of long hair a lower ponytail may be the answer.
