4 Myths About Hair. True or False?

Have you ever heard of the myth that says pulling out a grey hair will only trigger the growth of another? Just so you don't get caught up in all the myths about hair anymore, we're gonna debunk a few and see which ones are indeed fact. Let's scroll down!

Our current hair treatment can be influenced by our mother or even grandmother’s habits from years ago. Some myths were even passed down to us that we now incorporate into our daily lives without ever finding out whether it's true or not. Let’s take a look at these 4 common hair myths below!

1 . Trimming your hair ends frequently can make hair grow faster

It’s totally false, sorry! We are often recommended to trim our hair every 6-8 weeks, in fact this is being done not to make our hair grow faster, but to prevent further hair breakage from occurring. The split ends only stop at the end of the hair and it becomes elastic again.

2. Shampooing with cold water makes your hair shinier

Basically, hair becomes shiny if the outer layer of the hair cuticles are well preserved and moisturised. In fact, the thing that can keep the cuticles moisturised is not only cold water, but the use of hair vitamins. Hair vitamins make the cuticles moisturised and healthy so that hair can remain protected and shiny.

3. Drying hair with a towel is better than using a hair dryer

The truth is, drying hair using a towel is just as dangerous if done incorrectly, in fact sometimes even more damaging to hair strands than using a hair dryer. The right way is to simply press your hair gently without having to aggressively rub it. You can also use a hair dryer at low temperature and adjust the distance from your hair so that the heat will not be focused on only one part of your hair. Most importantly, you can protect your hair from the heat of any hairstyling tools by using Ellips Hair Vitamin Pro Keratin Complex before using a hair dryer!

4. Hair Vitamins can make hair oily and hair seem greasier 

We’re sure you've heard this one before and believed it. Reality: totally a myth. We understand a lot of people with oily hair may not want to add hair vitamins to their haircare routine thinking it will make matters worse. The fact is oil-type hair vitamins, such as Moroccan oil, are an excellent way to restore moisture to the hair. In fact, moisture through the hair strands will allow hair to not tangle as easily and be much more manageable, smooth, and shiny. In addition, hair vitamins can also protect and treat damaged hair caused by the heat of hairstyling tools and UV rays from the sun. You can try it by using just one capsule of Ellips Hair Vitamin Moroccan oil after washing your hair!

A tip for those with oily hair, use Ellips Hair Vitamin Moroccan Oil from the middle of your hair all the way to the ends and avoid using it on the scalp, Ladies!
