5 Hair Care Myths You Need to Stop Believing

As a hair stylist, you hear hair care myths on a daily. You know, the scary and sometimes unbelievable rumors that seem to have surfaced out of thin air? So, we're addressing some of the biggest hair myths we hear from our hair salon in Fort Myers, with a mission to set the records straight.

"If your hair is dirty, the updo will have better hold."

This honestly isn't always the case. In fact, some of those amazing updos that you see all over Pinterest can only really be achieved with clean hair and, of course, the right technique.

A hairstylist can "dirty" your hair using products, this ensures that your hair is in the proper condition for the best possible updo. Clean hair is the most cooperative kind of hair, allowing a hairstylist to recognize the hair type and guarantee a perfect look every time.

Not to mention, would you really want to run your hands through somebody's dirty hair?

Neither do stylists.

"If you trim your hair, it will grow faster." 

We honestly have absolutely no idea where this hair myth derived from. Scientific facts about hair growth have already debunked this myth, but people still love to believe it. It's simple; if you keep cutting your hair, it will keep getting shorter.

That being said, this myth buster doesn't completely eliminate the need for haircuts. Not getting your hair cut will lead to split ends, which result in thinner looking hair. We recommend getting a haircut every 8-10 weeks for healthy looking hair.

Let your stylist know that you're growing out your hair - a good one will perform, what is known as, "dusting". This involves a light trim to the ends of your hair. This will prevent split ends and improve the texture of the hair without trimming your length gains.

"Don't condition thin hair." 

Admittedly, we understand the logic behind this myth. After all, conditioners can weigh down the hair...something which fine hair does not behave well with. However, avoiding conditioner completely will leave your hair undernourished. So, what do you do? 

You just have to choose your conditioner correctly, making sure that it isn't too heavy for thin hair. Look for lightweight, volumizing formulas. We have the best conditioner solutions for all types of hair at our hair salon in Fort Myers.

If these still don't work for you, you could consider using leave-in conditioners (which we have at the Salon too).

On all occasions, only use a small amount, don't apply conditioner to the roots, don't leave it in your hair for too long and, perhaps, condition before you shampoo.  

"Dying your hair makes it look unhealthy." 

Bleaching aside, coloring your hair shouldn't have a bad reputation that it has. Actually, the extra deposit of product on hair can make it look thicker and healthier, this is just one of those hair dye myths that you can ignore.

Dying your hair, just like a lot of other practices, does damage your hair a little. However, this isn't irreversible. If you commit yourself to taking care of your hair, think, hair massages and damage treatments, you can restore your hair. Don't worry.

"You should wash oily hair daily"

This couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, roots get oily quicker when you wash your hair every day - it compensates, every time you wash your hair you remove the healthy oils from the roots, so your hair creates more and more, resulting in an excess. Washing your hair every day is also not the best thing you can do for your overall hair health.

Also, going back to the "don't condition thin hair" myth, many believe that you shouldn't condition oily hair...this isn't true and actually makes the scalp dryer thus resulting in more oil.

We recommend brushing your hair thoroughly before washing it, shampoo your hair with the correct shampoo and only wash your hair every other day, at the maximum. Over time, your hair will become less oily and easier to manage.  

We hope in debunking these hair myths, you now have a little bit more knowledge on how to take care of your hair. If you have any questions about hair myths or hair health, we'll be happy to answer them. You can contact Scene 826 in Fort Myers, Florida at (239) 479-7679.

Great times with great people

The Fine Line and Wine tasting was a great time! We learned that a lot of us liked different wines we never thought we would. These limited boutique style wines are at such a great price. Wine Shop at home only makes each wine from the same grape in that same area at limited quantities then they discontinue that specific one; leaving every wine you get a new taste adventure!!

Patti from Nerium showed us an 8 minute video seeing before and after photos that blew our mind!

Cannot wait to see everyone next month. Rumor has it,... Blow Dry boot camp is coming:)
