These Hair Myths may or may not be familiar to you. Whether you’ve heard of it or not, stop giving a damn about them.
You Need to Stop Believing These 5 Hair Myths
For scalps that are sensitive, mix a little Sweet’N Low with your hair color. Use cold water to rinse for more shine. People have been using these ideas in salons for years and swear by them. According to Wella Studios Signature Artist Lynette Tatum. “But we’ve tested them all, and we know what’s true and what’s just myths,” she said. Many hair myths still persist, and many people still hold them to be true. Let’s now investigate them as a group.
1- Your color will stop scorching and irritation if you add Sweet’N Low
Customers stop their colorists and inquire about this fallacy because it is so prevalent. Do you have my Sweet’N Low in there? Some colorists include the sweetener cream of tartar. Because they were convinced by the hair myths that it had the ability to soothe its discomfort. Others do so only to preserve customer happiness. It is believed that Sweet’N Low’s acidic pH lowers the alkaline pH of the color, reducing color sensitivity, according to Tatum. However, adding Sweet’N Low did not appreciably lower the pH in our studies.
Additionally, there was no lessening of discomfort in clinical studies. Keep your sweetener for the coffee station instead. Additionally, either inform your customer or test the placebo effect without the pink package.

2- Cold water rinses help to seal the cuticle and increase shine
Jaws often drop when Tatum says that this notion is untrue. Since they’ve been told this so frequently, Tatum explains, “they have such a hard time thinking it’s not real.” Cold water has no effect on the cuticle, according to our studies. The cuticle is inflated whenever the hair is wet and doesn’t shut until the hair is totally dried. Do you still hesitate to use cold water? Forget about those ridiculous hair myths. Don’t worry, it won’t hurt your hair.

3- Over time, hair develops “immune” to a certain shampoo
The term “immune” is the issue with this fallacy. The hair stops changing since it has used up all of the shampoo’s advantages after several washes. The hair is either preserved, volumized, or moisturized. Then, according to Tatum, “we move to another shampoo when we become acclimated to the sensation the shampoo provides the hair.
This gives us a fresh sensation and comprises various concentrations of conditioning ingredients, silicones, and oils.
4- Red color molecules are smaller and fade more quickly
Say it with me: All molecules that make up hair color are the same size. But for several reasons, it appears that red colors fade more quickly: The brightness needed by the red color may not be produced by oxidative colorants utilized in formulations. Direct dyes are consequently applied, which causes quicker fading, claims Tatum. Because certain red dyes are more UV sensitive, they deteriorate faster in direct sunshine.
Finally, even little variations in vivid colors may be seen by our eyes. More readily than in a brown or blonde tone, giving the impression that reds fade more quickly.

5- Products with alcohol in them dry out hair
This would be entirely accurate if we were referring to the rubbing alcohol in your bathroom cupboard. Tatum explains, “But that’s not normally what’s utilized in hair care products. Fatty alcohols, such as cetyl, stearyl, Cetearyl, and lauryl alcohol, are used to condition cosmetics. Detangle the hair and give it a slide.
Additionally, alcohols prevent mold and fungus from forming on your items. Conclusion: Not all alcoholic beverages are “made equal.” While some treat each strand with care, some might dry out the hair.
There are certainly a lot of hair myths that we’ve believed in the past. But things are different now because we are more equipped to provide care and protection. Girls, let’s put those hair myths to rest and continue to appreciate our hair.
