Are you a culprit of these hair no-no's?

With hairdressing and general hair care evolving over the last few decades, there are still some old wives’ tales floating around about how to properly care for your locks. We’ve done our research and found some of the most common myths about hair that are still widely accepted. From when to wash it, through to what causes grey hairs, we’ve uncovered it all. Be sure to read on and find out if you’ve been hindering your hair rather than helping it—as well as where to go for premium hair treatments across Ballina and Lennox Head!

Have you been braving cold showers to make your hair shinier? Do you wash your hair every day? If so, you’re going to want to read on. We have debunked some common misconceptions about keeping your hair beautiful and healthy. For more great advice, head to these great Lennox Head and Ballina hairdressers!

Myth 1: You should wash your hair every day.

While it’s widely believed that washing your hair every day will keep your hair looking and feeling beautiful, doing so could actually be quite detrimental to your hair. Washing it daily actually tends to remove the natural oils and proteins produced everyday on your scalp, essentially drying it out. This results in dull, brittle hair. Instead, professionals recommend you wash your hair twice a week (or when it feels dirty).

Myth 2: Washing your hair in cold water will make it shinier.

You’ve been putting up with cold showers in the hopes it will do wonders for your hair. If you’re tired of running your hair under freezing cold water, especially in winter, guess what? You can start turning on the hot faucet again! The temperature of the water does not determine whether the hair cuticles open or close. So good news—you don’t have to suffer more cold showers!

Myth 3: Plucking grey hairs will cause more to grow.

If you’ve been plucking away at any stray greys, it’s probably best to stop. While more grey hairs won’t pop up in its place, it could in fact have the opposite effect—create a bald spot! So if you’re worried about stray greys, best to head to a salon to get them fixed up!
