Never pluck a grey hair

Like many, you also never dare to pluck grey hair on your head. You believe one pluck will add many of them. It is a sheer nonsense because a single hair follicle cannot grow four or five hair, so how plucking one grey hair can add multiple grey hairs on your head. You should avoid hair plucking, a better way is to cut grey hair close to its root, and you will manage to hide them well.

The more you trim the faster they grow

Your hair ends do not determine how fast or slow your hair growth will be but your hair follicles do. Therefore, if you believe frequent hair trim will make your hair grow fast, you are mistaken. Normal hair growth is approximately quarter inch a month, if everything is normal then your hair will grow this much whether you trim them or not.

Washing hair everyday is good

This is the biggest and the most stupid hair myth. You can never have healthy hair if you wash them every day. Too much of hair washing leaves your hair dry and frizzy, so do it twice a week. If you feel the need, make it thrice but reject the idea of everyday hair wash.

Brush your hair quite many times a day

Those of you who believe the more you brush your hair in a day, the smoother and healthier they become are at loss. You should only brush your hair whenever it is required because too much of unnecessary brushing damage hair cuticles.

Frequently change your shampoo and conditioner brand
