Haircare Myths Debunked: What You Should Stop Believing

When it comes to haircare, there's an abundance of advice and information out there. However, not all of it is accurate. At Iron Born Barbershop, we believe in providing accurate and reliable information to help you achieve the best results for your hair. In this blog post, we'll debunk common haircare myths and set the record straight. Read on to discover the truth behind these myths, having been debunked by our expert barbers.

Myth 1: "Cutting Hair Makes It Grow Faster"

One of the most persistent haircare myths is that cutting your hair makes it grow faster. In reality, hair growth occurs at the scalp, and cutting the ends does not affect the rate of growth. Regular haircuts, however, do help maintain healthy hair by preventing split ends and breakage whilst promoting hair growth.

Myth 2: "Brushing Hair 100 Strokes a Day Promotes Shine"

Excessive brushing can actually damage your hair by causing friction and breakage. Brushing your hair gently and as needed is sufficient for maintaining its health and shine. Overbrushing can lead to unnecessary stress on your hair strands.

Myth 3: "Shampooing Every Day Is Necessary"

Contrary to popular belief, daily shampooing isn't necessary for everyone. Over-shampooing can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and prone to damage. How often you should shampoo depends on your hair type and lifestyle. Consult with our expert barbers at Iron Born Barbershop for personalised recommendations.

Myth 4: "Split Ends Can Be Repaired"

Once a hair strand is split, it cannot be repaired. The only effective solution is to trim the split ends to prevent further damage from traveling up the hair shaft. Regular haircuts can help keep split ends at bay and promote healthy hair growth. Find out exactly how regular haircuts can help here.

Myth 5: "Using More Product Gives Better Results"

Using excessive amounts of hair products won't necessarily yield better results. In fact, using too much product can weigh down your hair and make it appear greasy. Follow product usage instructions and consult our expert barbers for guidance on the right amount for your hair type. Learn more about how our own range of products can help you!

Myth 6: "Cold Water Makes Hair Shinier"

The temperature of the water you use for washing your hair doesn't significantly impact its shine. While cold water may help seal the hair cuticle slightly, the effects are minimal. Instead, focus on using quality haircare products and maintaining a healthy haircare routine.
