But is there any scientific backing to support them? Are they just hearsay or facts? Well, when it comes to hair care routine, there are myths out there. As one of the
As a hair specialist, we debunk common myths so that you do not get swayed by hearsay when it comes to taking care of your mane:
Myth 1: Conditioner is not good for oily hair
Fact: Conditioners are good for all hair types as they provide a healthy dose of hydration, nourishment, and protection that a cleanser alone cannot provide. Oily hair is caused by excessive production of sebum, the natural oil produced by the scalp. However, when people use conditioners that are not meant for oily hair, they make their hair look weighed down. Like a proper cleanser, it is important to choose a conditioner that is formulated for oily hair. Our conditioner for oily hair has a non-greasy formula that soaks up only the excess oil and do not leave the hair dry. For better results, follow our oily hair treatment regimen.
Note: The best hair conditioner is the one that suits your hair type.
Myth 2: Wash hair frequently to get rid of dandruff
Fact: You should wash hair not more than twice or thrice a week or only when you feel the need of washing your hair. Cleaning your hair with a nourishing dandruff cleanser will help you remove dandruff flakes. Dandruff cleansers are formulated using ingredients with antibacterial and antifungal properties. A specially formulated helps in reducing the action of fungi and bacteria. Make sure you use the right products that are mild enough for regular use but trust us, it’s the ingredients and the right products which will make the difference and not just washing your hair too frequently.
Myth 3: The more you cut your hair, the faster it grows
Fact: The length of the hair has no direct effect on the speed at which it grows. The hair grows out of the roots, cutting the ends will not make the hair grow any faster. However, it is a good idea to get your hair trimmed regularly to avoid split ends.
Myth 4: Use hair mask instead of conditioner
Fact: A hair conditioner and a hair mask are two distinct hair products offering different benefits. A hair conditioner is ideal for use after a shampoo. It detangles hair, leaving it manageable, silky, and shiny. Unlike a hair conditioner, a hair mask is a deep conditioning treatment. As ingredients are more concentrated in a hair mask, it should be used once a week or once in 10 days depending on your hair condition.
