Whether it's a trick from your grandma or a tip your best friend swears by, we're here to bust some of the world's biggest hair myths. BOOM!
FALSE! Using a shampoo or cleansing conditioner that suits your specific hair type and texture will add moisture and volume as it cleanses
FALSE! Only one hair can ever grow out of one follicle. The rate of greying is down to genes, so whether you pluck them out or not, the numbers are out of your control. Embrace the silver within!
FALSE! Excessive brushing can actually damage and weaken hair, making it dull and prone to breakage.
MAYBE! Seems like an old wive's tale but the moon influences so many rythms in the natural world, including plants and even the tides, so why not hair? Our bodies are made up of 60% water, after all.
FALSE! Hair growth all happens at the root so, while cutting frayed or split ends may make the hair appear or feel fuller, it doesn't actually change how it grows which is at a rate of about 1.5cm a month
TRUE! Pulling hair int tight styles can over time, cause hair loss - the official name is "traction alopecia". So, relax and choose looser looks.
FALSE! There's no reason why (unnatural) blondes can't dye their hair whilst pregnant! Getting your hair coloured isn't harmful on its own but you do have to be careful about inhaling chemical fumes. Speak to your colourist about the best way to do it.
