Hair Myths

Things you should and should not believe when it comes to hair.

“Hair grows faster on different parts of your head.”

“Pulling your hair back with a ponytail or bun will make you bald.”

“If you brush thinning hair frequently, your hair will fall out faster.”

“Wearing a cap will make you lose more hair.”
