Growing up I always heard from my family, especially my Mom and Grandma, a ton of Hair Myths. At the time, I believed each one! Once I began researching about natural hair care. I found out, that many of the things I thought were true, we in fact, not true. I created a list of some of the things that I heard.
1.) You should always frequently cut your hair, in order for it to grow longer.
2.) If you use a hot comb, on relaxed hair, it will fall out.
3.) If you leave the house with wet hair, you will catch a cold.
4.) Brush your hair 100 times a day, and it will help it grow.
5.)Your hair will fall out, if there is more than 2 people doing your hair at the same time.
6.) A pregnant woman doing your hair will help your hair grow.
(Somehow her hormones helps you??)
7.) Washing your hair frequently, will result with your hair falling out.
8.) If you don't grease your scalp every few days, you hair will be dry and will fall out.
9.) You can never have healthy hair with a relaxer.
10.) Don't relax your hair more than every 3 months, if you do your hair will fall out.
11.) Never have a young person style or wash your hair, because they do not know what they are doing.
12.) Don't comb your hair while wet, it fragile and will break.
13.) Do not leave conditioner in for too long.
14.) Most recently, a Man doing your hair will help it grow.
Crazy, huh? To this day my Mom still believes alot of these myths. She reads my blog, so since she doesn't believe me, hopefully your comments will let her know the truth LOL.
What are some myths that you heard?
