  • Hair Care Misconceptions and Truths

    There are many misconceptions about hair care and these misconceptions can negatively affect hair health. In this article, I will examine the common misconceptions about hair care and explain how you can take better care of your hair.

    1. The Harm of Washing Hair Without Shampoo

    Some people prefer not to use shampoo when washing their hair, but this is a wrong practice. It is important to use the right shampoo to clean the scalp and hair strands. Silicone-free shampoos are preferable, but avoiding sulfates can damage the scalp. Choosing the right shampoo is important for your hair health.

    2. The Relationship between Moisture and Silicone in Hair

    It's important for hair to stay moisturized, but products containing silicone are thought to prevent this. In fact, healthy hair cuticles tend not to absorb water because they are hydrophobic. However, creating a protective layer around the hair using hair care products can retain moisture and help keep hair healthy.

    3. Silicone and Hair Care

    Silicone-based products can add shine to hair and make it easier to comb. Although silicone is thought to build up on the hair, weighing it down and negatively affecting the health of the hair, silicone-containing products that are well cleaned and used in the right quantities can be beneficial for hair. Every hair type is different, so it's important to use trial and error to find the best result.

    4. The Real Effect of Sulfate-Free Shampoos

    Sulfate-free shampoos can gently cleanse hair, but may not be suitable for all hair types. Sulfate-free shampoos can be ideal, especially for fine hair, but may not provide adequate cleansing for oily hair. Choosing the right cleanser ensures proper care for your hair type.

    5. The Role of Hair Oils

    Hair oils can deeply care for the hair and nourish the strands. However, the hair oils suitable for each hair type are different. Before using hair oils, it is important to choose the right oil considering your hair type.

    6. Correct Hair Drying Technique

    Drying hair correctly has a significant impact on hair health. Instead of letting hair dry on its own, using a blow dryer on low heat and at least 30 cm away can reduce hair damage. It is also important to be gentle when combing the hair and use the right products.

    Having the right knowledge in hair care can improve the health of your hair and help you achieve the look you want. However, every hair type is different, so it is important to understand your own hair needs to achieve the best results.
