When I was growing up my mom was full of Old Wives Tales. I swear she had one for every situation at any given moment and loved to share them with me. They would just slip off her tonged without a thought. Today I caught myself repeating one! No, really I said it and as soon as the words left my moth I cringed because damit I sounded just like my mom! So today's Blog Post is a list of Hair Myths curtesy of my mom!
Brush Your Hair 100 Times
Especially if you have curly cues like I do. You take the chance of causing your hair stress which can lead to unwanted Breakage.
If you wear that Hat for too Long
Your hat is not going to determine if you go bald or not.
Wash Your Hair Everyday
Okay I know that it is unnecessary and unhealthy to wash your hair everyday. However, if I'm being honest here, I have a hard time not washing my hair everyday. I just think that my hair feels too gross to not wash everyday. So my mom did win on this one, but if you can help it. Do not wash your hair everyday. Washing your hair strips it of its natural and healthy oils that your hair needs to be strong. So skip the shampoo and conditioner and give your hair the love it wants.
If you Pull Out Gray Hair
Yeah I'm not really sure how this was a logical assumption. Yet it is a saying and one that I heard pretty often. It however, like everything else on this list is a Myth. Therefore No pulling out a gray hair does not make two more appear!
Hot oil will Cure Split Ends
I'm not sure what my moms fascination is with hot oil, but it is her go to when I complain about split ends. The truth however as heartbreaking as it is, is that there is no remedy or special treatment to rectify your Split Ends. The only thing you can do you have healthy/non-frizzy hair is to just trim them off.
