Myth 1: Trimming your hair will make your hair grow faster
This is false. According to the beauty expert trimming only makes your hair break less. Trimming unhealthy split ends regularly not only reduces hair breakage and flyaways but also gives it a thicker and even shinier look.
Myth 2: Glossy or Shinny hair means your hair is moisturized or hydrated
This is false, oil only acts as a sealant. She says for your hair to be fully moisturized you need the ultimate moisturizer which is water. She also advice the use of hair products that contain water & formulated to penetrate your strands.
Myth 3: The best way to refresh your curls is to saturate your hair with water
Although water is an ultimate moisturizer, water alone can be damaging to your natural hair. This is because our source of water can have a lot of chemicals i.e. hard water. On this she advice’s you use products that provide nourishment, slip, define your curls while also counteracting oxidative damage.
