5 popular hair myths you’ve probably been believing for years

You’ve probably heard them all, hair myths that have been around for so long, we’ve accepted them as wisdom. We’re here to set the record straight for men everywhere. We’ll be focusing on 5 popular myths which are not only entirely incorrect but could be encouraging you to care for your hair in entirely the wrong way.

Myth 1

Hair Needs to be Shampooed Daily

This is not always true because the number of times you wash your hair should be dictated by the products you use or vice versa. If you wash regularly then use a clarifying shampoo that cleans the scalp but does not strip the hair of its natural oils. 

Myth 2

Hair Cannot Be ‘Trained’

The way your hair grows is ultimately influenced by gravity and by the position of the follicles on the scalp. However, if you want to change your parting or the way your hair grows, frequent and consistent adjustments to the position of your hair can, over time, start to impact the way your hair grows. Meaning that yes, hair can be trained, it just might take some time.

 

Myth 3

Shaving Your Head Will Make Hair Grow Thicker or Faster

This is a common myth that also impacts the world of women’s shaving – but it is not true. Your hair is made of protein and keratin and does not communicate with your body, so your body does not know it has been shaved. The new growth of hair might only appear thicker or darker because it is brand new and has not been impacted by environmental factors like the sun, and its straight-across shave means re-growth is blunt and appears denser.

Myth 4

Dry Scalp is the Cause of Dandruff

There is no single factor responsible for dandruff; rather, it can be caused by anything from irritating products to a fungal infection in the scalp. The main thing to note is that dandruff is a result of your scalp flaking due to heightened sensitivity, so cut out your products and work from there to ascertain the cause of your issue.

 

Myth 5

Shampoo Makes Hair Grow Faster

The shampoo will not necessarily make your hair grow faster and it certainly won’t achieve any noticeable impact on its own. Rather, selecting a shampoo that supports your hair goals, combined with a high-level hair care routine and a healthy diet and lifestyle can all contribute towards helping your hair grow faster.
