Pulling grey hair out makes more grow
It can be tempting to pull out grey hairs but you’ve probably heard people say that this makes more grow in their place. This is definitely an old wives tale but it still isn’t advisable to pluck your hair out. As with greying, many men start experiencing hair loss as they get older. Pulling out all those greys will leave you looking thinner on top than ever.
You need lots of bubbles to cleanse your hair properly
There is something about lots of bubbles that people associate with cleanliness. However, a good shampoo doesn’t need to form a thick lather to get your hair clean. What is important is to use products that are suited to your hair type and needs. If your hair is fine and dry, a shampoo that nourishes while enhancing volume would be beneficial. Oiler, thicker hair types will find that a clarifying shampoo with hydrating ingredients would work better for them. Whatever your hair type, if you are experiencing hair loss, shampoo won’t cure it and it is a good idea to seek specialist advice about the treatments available.
