It’s shocking how many men have been misinformed of the proper ways to care for their hair. Let’s take a few minutes to address the top 5 hair myths for men.
Myth 1: Cut your hair often for faster growth
Unfortunately, this contradiction makes for an impossible outcome. If you are going for a relaxed long hairstyle, cutting it will only delay your hair’s ability to grow freely. While the ability to grow hair fast or slowly is a hereditary trait, consider your overall health first. Improving your diet and increasing your water intake are great first steps toward quality hair care and will help your locks grow long.
Myth 2: Lather, rinse, repeat!
While it may be on every shampoo bottle to “lather, rinse, and repeat”, this suggestion works best when the product is used occasionally rather than daily. Unless your job requires you to spend significant time in the elements, washing your hair or hair system every day is unnecessary and may cause hair to dry out over time.
Myth 3: For shinier hair, rinse with cold water
This age-old myth goes unsupported in science, with no proof of its claims. Rinsing with cold water will only leave you with cold, wet hair. If you want to restore your hair system’s shine, switch to RemySoft’s sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. With fewer chemicals contributing to damaged follicles, your hair will be renewed and restored.
Myth 4: Blow drying is bad for your hair. Air-dry only!
It’s true that applying high heat to your hair daily can contribute to dry or brittle locks, but don’t throw out your hairdryer just yet. Air-drying each day may, in fact, introduce some unwanted problems with your do. The best remedy is to allow your hair to partially air-dry, apply a heat protector prior to blow-drying, or simply use a lower heat setting on your hairdryer.
Myth 5: Covering your hair with gel or a hat causes hair loss
Hairstyling gel may contribute to dry hair problems, and wearing a hat will most definitely flatten your do, but these two things will not cause hair loss. What may cause hair loss is stress, a nutritional deficiency, aging, or even an illness. Please consult with a doctor if you have any of these medical concerns, but rest assured it is not related to your go-to hair gel or your favorite baseball cap.
