Thread: Hair "myths"

  1. #1

    Default Hair "myths"

    What are some things your parent(s) used to do for your hair (brushing and so on like usually parents do) that made you think it's correct? Not sure how to form it, but as in brushing your hair, despite you having curly hair and they did not know how to care for it, so they just.. brushed it, for example.

    It interests me as people have similar experiences like that. :popcorn:

    All thin ends or taper are the result of damage.

    Hahaha, I actually have thought the same thing until recently.. People usually consider it that way because they're used to "thick" hemline and all other.

    "You HAVE to have a relaxer".

    The hot comb.... *shudders*. Wasn't really a myth but, what else were you supposed to do with children's hair!?

    (As a child) “If you eat your (bread) crusts your hair will go curly”.

    I ate all my crusts and never a curl. Had I not been raking through my hair with a brush while damp and then blow drying it maybe I’d have discovered the little wurls I only found in my 30’s!

    Just the usual "you have to brush or it's messy." It worked when I actually had 1b hair as a little kid, but I think I would have noticed my texture changed earlier if I'd known it's okay not to brush sometimes.

    Don't know if this really counts, but mom tells me my hair is super thick, despite my ponytail circumference being only ~3.5 inches. Maybe because her's is quite thin.
    She also told me that if I cut my hair short my face would look awful. I did cut my hair short eventually, and I really liked it that way. I buzzed my hair every few weeks for years.
    Now, obviously, I've decided to grow it out though.

    My mom has always gotten her hair cut every 4-6 weeks my whole life. She keeps it ultra short, she said her hair got too bushy if she let it grow any longer. I had that same mindset, until Jan 2018! I haven’t had it cut since. Now I can’t imagine sitting in a “chair” 😱
    Growing til I retire.... the countdown!!! 🤗

    "Your hair will grow stronger if you cut your ends"
    My mother tells me that all the time and I always tell her that it doesn't make any sense. Me cutting my ends have nothing to do with hair growth.
    Also: "oil will save your fried hair" and similar ones
    If your hair is completely fried, I'm afraid few things can save it. You can make it look better, but the damage won't fade away. It won't be healthy hair.

    You have to wash your hair every other day. Lmao. My hair was sooo oily/dry when I followed that advice.
