3.Myth: If you pluck a gray hair, two or more will grow in the same place.
Fact: When you pluck out the gray hair there is a chance that you are looking for more so you see more.
4.Myth: Gray hair is often caused by stress.
Fact: Stress can accelerate graying hair. Gray hair is caused by the melanocytes that produce melanin (pigment) dying and therefore no longer producing color.
5.Myth: Your eyebrows should always match your hair colour.
Fact: This is partially true due to current trends. To have darker eyebrows than your real hair colour is trending everywhere.
6.Myth: By trimming often your hair grows faster.
Fact: The follicles in your scalp actually determine the growth of your hair. However, by trimming the hair may make them appear longer and thicker because you are getting rid of split ends and breakage.
7.Myth: Shaving the head of a newborn prevents baldness.
Fact: It is false. Male baldness sometimes happens due to inheritance. If father and grandfather /maternal grandfather both have this genetic characteristic then the newborn will inherit it.
8.Myth: If you never wash your hair, it will clean itself.
Fact: It will just get dirtier and would result in greasy, itchy scalp.
9.Myth: You should not use conditioner if your hair is greasy.
Fact: One should not massage conditioner into the scalp but should apply to the body and tips of the hair. Only people with very short hair do not need conditioner.

Fact: Not at all. It will be the same every time you wash your hair unless you have coloured your hair or used hot tools frequently.
