Till then, i’ll leave you with some funny hair Myths courtesy of DYSON
Hair is best brushed when wet
Hair is actually 50% weaker when wet. Wet hair stretches more than dry hair before it breaks. Wet hair has a co-efficient of friction that is significantly higher than dry hair, therefore combing/brushing whilst wet will increase the amount of force applied to the hair increasing the likelihood of breaks occurring.
Running cold water at the end of your shower makes your hair shiny [i was a tad upset reading this part lol]
The general premise of this rumour is that colder water will cause the cuticle layer (surface) of hair to close. Hair however is dead and there are no active mechanisms (e.g. opening &; closing of cuticle layers) caused by either hot or cold water. The hair cortex swells slightly with water due to penetration into the hair, however this occurs with both hot and cold water.
Cutting your hair frequently makes it grow faster
No it doesn’t, hair grows from the root & the body doesn’t know when it has been cut (shaving,plucking, tweezing is a different story). Cutting the hair removes split ends which help the hair stay more aligned and look healthier. Perceptually if you get your hair cut more frequently you will probably be more aware of how quickly it grows.
If you pluck a grey hair more will grow back
When a hair follicle begins growing grey hair, all new hairs from this follicle will be grey. If you pluck the hair the follicle will be forced back into the anagen growth phase and will produce another grey hair. There is no clear evidence that plucking a single hair will cause other hair follicles to start [DARN!] producing grey hairs instead.
The more you brush your hair, the healthier it will be
Brushing the hair mechanically damages the hair, breaking bonds in the cortex weakening it over time. The abrasion to the cuticle (surface) of the hair will break off small bits of cuticle that stick up due to other damage, this will enable the hair strands to align better which will make it temporarily look healthier however it is still more damaged than before & less resistant to chemical, environmental, physical &; heat damage in the future.
In general, the weight needed to produce a natural hair thread rupture is 50-100 g. An average head has about 120,000 threads of hair and would support about 12 tons. MIGHTY MIGHTY HAIR!!
