Hair Myths Exposed: The Series

             We’ve all grown up hearing so many myths on an array of topics, but when it comes to hair the myths continue from one generation to the next. The number one myth in my opinion that women fall for all the time is, “This product is guaranteed to GROW your hair.” Women go from one product to the next in hopes that maybe this “MAGIC POTION” will grow my hair FASTER. NO hair product is going to grow your hair or grow it at a faster rate. So Here is a list of FACTS & contributing factors on growing healthy hair and start saving your money, time and energy today. ~RaiNa =)

  • Hair grows on average 1/2 an inch each month, 6 inches a year.
  • Hair growth is also determined by genetics.On the other hand “maintaining” hair growth comes as a result of a healthy balanced diet  regular trims/using quality products specifically designed for your hair care needs & not abusing heat appliances (flat irons/blowdryers)* and combing one’s hair from ends to root to avoid breakage while wet or dry.
