1. Hair should not be washed every day
In fact, someone has to wash hair every day, but for someone 2-3 times a week is enough. The aim of properly selected care is to normalize the greasiness of the scalp.
During the treatment of various scalp diseases, trichologists often prescribe daily cleansing for a certain period, and then change the interval.
Nowadays, there is a large selection of shampoos for daily use, which allows you to use them constantly and at the same time not impair the lipid barrier of the skin. But it is better to use them when it is necessary.
2. All care products must be of the same brand
It is not necessary. Each product has a specific purpose. Shampoo should cleanse, balms and masks should nourish, lotions should stimulate hair growth, and peeling should gently and deeply cleanse the scalp. The composition of cosmetics and individual selection of products are important.
3. Sulphates are evil
Most people think that sulfate-free shampoos are better than the rest. Misconception is supported by manufacturers of such shampoos and advertising. However, with long-term use, many shampoos are sometimes the reason for dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. It is important to understand when such shampoos should be used.
Don’t be afraid of sulfates, because they cleanse our skin of dust, extra oil and other impurities. Sulfate-free shampoos are suitable for those who are allergic to sulfates or have very dry scalp. If the skin is oily, it is better to use shampoos with sulfates so that they clean your scalp well.
4. Nicotinic acid stimulates hair growth
Nicotinic acid is not produced to be applied to the scalp. It is irritating and can cause scalp damage and an allergic reaction. In addition, it does not penetrate below the epidermis, and the follicles are located below - in the dermis.
5. Wooden combs are better because they are natural.
Even well-polished wood has serifs and can damage hair. In addition, the tree absorbs oil and moisture, which favorably affects the reproduction of pathogenic bacteria. A comb with rounded teeth is the best. It is also important not to forget to clean the combs, wash them in soapy water and change them in a timely manner.
