Now find out what’s true and what’s just silly and how you can fix the most common hair mistakes clients make in their unending pursuit of healthy, shiny hair!

Brush your hair 100 times a day to keep your hair healthy. Nope! Frequent brushing does move the oils to the ends of your hair, but excessive brushing can also lead to breakage.

Stress will make your hair fall out. Yes! Stress reduces blood circulation at the scalp where it’s needed most. At the least, stress can cause your hair to misshape.

Shampooing every day keeps hair clean and healthy. Not so. Very dry hair simply can’t withstand frequent washings. However, oily hair loves it!

Swimming pools will turn your hair green. Yes, but only if you are a blonde. If your hair was dry to begin with, chlorine can turn lighter shades of hair a lovely shade of green.

Eggs, mayo and olive oil are the best hair conditioners. No way! The molecules are too big to get inside the hair.

Coloring your hair while pregnant is bad. Yes. All over dyes are not recommended, especially during the first trimester. But highlights are okay because they do not touch the scalp.

And our favorite: standing on your head will make your hair grow faster. Nope, but a good head massage does stimulate scalp blood flow. We got you covered on that one! (235)

Mistake #1- Only Conditioning The Ends Of Your Hair Women mistakenly think that conditioner should be applied to the lower half of their hair because it “weighs it down.” Choose one that is right for your hair texture and let ALL of your hair enjoy the benefit.

Mistake #2-Not Using A Heat Protective Styling Product With all the heat that is applied to hair, this one is an absolute MUST. Hot tools can cause breakage, making your hair feel dry and brittle. Insulate it! Using a heat protecting spray before you style.

Mistake #3-Skipping Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatments This one is crucial, especially if you are not using a daily conditioner properly. Deep conditioning helps to fill in any holes, as well as repair roughed up patches of hair. It works instantly to strengthen and soften.

Mistake #4-Rough Towel Drying You’re late for work so you’re rubbing your hair wildly. Unfortunately, it won’t speed up the towel drying time. Instead, spritz detangling spray all over. Then squeeze out water with a super soft towel. Now your hair is a cinch to comb!

Mistake #5-Tearing Through Knots With A Brush It’s tempting, when you’re in a hurry, to race through brushing your hair. But for hair that is prone to knotting, it’s the worst possible idea! Instead, start from the bottom up to loosen knots. The best trick to prevent knot-proned hair? A daily conditioner.
