There’s a lot of faulty science passed down generations when it comes to grooming.

Here, we take the mumbo-jumbo that a lot of you might believe.

Fixing Split Ends

It can’t be done. Nope – it can’t. The myth of ‘fixing’ split ends might have started with a company selling a split end sealing product, but split ends are terminal – they can’t be fixed. You have to cut them off.

Of course, there are temporary fixes, with products that lay down the split ends so they don’t show. But that’s where the fixing ends.

Again, not true. Plucking grey hair will damage your roots, even infect the empty root and hurt like hell, but it won’t cause more grey hairs to sprout out. If it did, you’d have the world’s cheapest (and most natural) way of avoiding baldness.

Braids Will Grow Your Hair Faster

For both women and men who braid their hair, braiding will cause too tight or too long can cause hair loss and baldness. One of the reasons behind this is Traction alopecia, a slow hair loss caused by pulling hair too tight by applying too much tension.

Hair Products used by Professional Stylists are the Same as Store-Bought Products

Not all shampoo is the same. (If it were, wouldn’t SRK be saving money using Head and Shoulders) While the concept of ‘professional hairstylist’ is ambiguous in India, the expensive, 500 bucks a haircut guys (not barbers!)

Professional products have more quality, expensive ingredients blended for an optimum formula – something you won’t find in your local Rs. 1 sachet shampoo. If you pay a buck, you’ll get a bucks worth of hair care.
