Today, I bring you more myths and truths that I'm sure will pique your interest. It's great that we can clear up doubts and always do what's right to keep our hair and scalp in perfect condition, ensuring we have the hair of our dreams.

Hair Grows Faster if Cut During a Full Moon or Waxing Moon - Myth

There's been talk since ancient times about the influence of the moon. While it's true that the moon's gravitational force can move tides, its effect on hair growth is minimal. Hair typically grows between 1cm to 1.5cm per month, depending on the individual. To stimulate growth, consider taking vitamins E, biotin, B12, and B3, along with a balanced diet.

Talc Helps Remove Grease from Hair - Truth

If you wash your hair every 2 or 3 days and feel your scalp and hair getting greasy, you can use talcum powder to combat it. However, be careful how you apply it. Rub a small amount into your palms and then only apply it to the roots. Overuse, especially on dark hair, can be noticeable. A modern alternative to talcum powder is dry shampoo, which absorbs grease, freshens your hair's scent, and adds volume.

Plucking a Gray Hair Causes More Grays - Myth

This is entirely false. Gray hairs, like any other hair, grow and fall out naturally. Plucking one gray hair doesn't cause more to grow. Graying occurs gradually with age as melanin, which determines hair color, decreases. More melanin means darker hair.

Using Hot Water is Best for Washing Hair - Myth

It's actually best to use warm or tepid water for washing your hair. Hot water can stimulate sebaceous glands, leading to greasier scalp and hair. It also increases hair porosity, making it more brittle and prone to breakage. Hot water strips away natural oils, dehydrating the hair and weakening the roots, which can lead to premature graying. For those with dandruff, hot water can exacerbate dehydration and scalp flaking, potentially leading to seborrheic dermatitis. Opt for warm water and a dandruff shampoo to address these concerns.

Washing Your Hair Every Day is Unnecessary - Truth

Hair should be washed 2 or 3 times a week. Washing it more often than necessary can strip away the natural oils produced by our sebaceous glands, which are essential for hydrating our hair. If you need to refresh your hair between washes, dry shampoo is a great ally.


Using Conditioner Causes Hair Loss - Myth

This claim is entirely false. Conditioner is essential for maintaining healthy hair. It restores moisture and nutrients lost due to internal or external factors. It's crucial to choose the right conditioner for your hair type, whether it's colored, dry and damaged, curly, or normal. Conditioner should be applied from mid-length to ends, never on the scalp. It works by smoothing the hair shaft and reinforcing the cuticle. The benefits of conditioner include maintaining moisture and shine, reducing frizz, protecting the cuticle, detangling, increasing softness, facilitating styling, preventing split ends, and repairing damage.


Using a Hair Mask Instead of Conditioner is Better for Dry Hair - Myth

Each product has its benefits and complements rather than replaces the other. Conditioner should be used after shampooing as part of your washing routine. It's the perfect combination for every wash. If you have dry hair, choose a conditioner tailored to your hair type for more effective nourishment. A hair mask or treatment, on the other hand, should be used depending on how often you wash your hair, typically once a week or every 10 days. It's a heavier, more nourishing cream that can reverse damage and dryness. Apply it after shampooing and skip the conditioner. Leave it on for 5 minutes or longer.


A Proper Diet Helps Achieve Spectacular Hair - Truth

Diet is a priority for achieving strong, healthy, shiny hair that looks and feels spectacular. Consuming proteins, minerals, and vitamins can reduce grease, dandruff, or hair loss. To maintain strong, healthy hair, follow a balanced diet rich in nutrients that strengthen the hair follicles. Essential nutrients for hair health include zinc, sulfur amino acids, magnesium, vitamin B6, iron, folic acid, and vitamin B12.
