Breaking News ! Now that most hairdressers are back open, most of us cannot wait to get a long overdue haircut. The majority of salons reopened soon after July 4, following the government's announcement that certain lockdown restrictions would be eased. But while it's always better to leave it to the professionals, you may not have actually done your hair too much harm by not having it cut for a few months. And there may be a number of things we have accepted as fact about our locks, which are in fact wrong, the Liverpool Echo reports. From plucking out your greys to encouraging hair growth with a regular trim, here we clear up 11 myths we may have wrongly believed about our hair. Cutting hair helps it to grow Regular trims help with split ends and a bigger chop may make your locks appear thicker. But your hair will not become fuller by having it cut more regularly. Hair is a protein filament, with growth occurring at the root and not the ends. So cutting your hair does not make it grow or not grow. And your hair will not become stronger, weaker, curlier or straighter by having it cut. Grey hair can be caused by stress While there is little scientific proof to suggest stress causes you to go grey, we all know that stress can impact your health. Your natural hair colour is determined by two types of hair pigments, which are melanin types. Melanin is responsible for the colour of your hair. You will find grey hairs when melanin production decreases or stops, which is usually down to genetics and ageing -and not stress. But stress can speed up the ageing and fallout process, which in turn would cause an increase in grey hairs if your body is already producing less melanin. Stress can cause hair loss There is no direct relation between stress and losing your hair. Thinning and temporary hair loss can occur however after experiencing a particularly traumatic event or shock. This is known as Telogen effluvium and usually occurs on the top of the scalp. Researchers for personal care brand Dove told Cosmopolitan once the stress has been reduced or eliminated, in almost all cases, hair growth will return to normal. A scalp massage can stimulate hair growth It's a relaxing experience and should be encouraged after the stresses and strains of lockdown. But a massage will in no way stimulate hair growth.

. Changing shampoos can cause hair loss Switch to as many different shampoos as you like. Your hair will not suffer as it does not get used to any particular brand. Young women do not lose their hair The NHS states hair loss can be genetic, or as a result of extreme stress, a medical condition, hormonal changes or treatment. Some girls as young as 12 are known to experience hair loss and it doesn't just affect older people. Taking supplements will help hair growth A supplement can only boost hair growth if it is related to your diet. If you are losing your hair due to a nutritional factor, vitamins containing protein and biotin can improve the strength of newly grown strands. Using conditioner can cause hair loss This is simply not true. The product in fact leads to the prevention of hair falling out, as a result of breakage. This is because conditioner smooths and softens your hair and helps with the detangling process.

Some people produce more than others. Conditioner helps with hydration and protection of the hair but salons recommend to only apply to the ends of your locks. Using too much can weigh down your hair or make it appear flat on top. Dandruff causes your hair to fall out This is false. Research completed by experts at Dove revealed there is no scientific link between dandruff and hair loss. Vigorous scratching however of a dry scalp could cause hair to break, possibly resulting in hair loss. Pulling out your greys can create more Plucking out your greys will not encourage more to grow. Remember that Melanin is responsible for the colour of your hair and you will get grey hairs when melanin production decreases or stops. This is usually down to genetics and ageing.
