What really is a fun fact about your hair?
myth or fact?
Plucking a hair solely because it is gray will not make two more grow in its place. A follicle that hosts one hair will not develop another hair shaft due to the hair being plucked from it. If the follicle can host more than one hair shaft, it might, but it won't be solely due to plucking a gray hair. So in conclusion plucking gray hairs will not make another hair form, but that original gray hair will still be gray when it comes back in, there's no getting rid of them.
The sun can lighten hair, but not all hair. It you have lighter hair and spend quite a bit of time outside you may notice some natural highlights, if you have darker hair you make notice the ever so slightly lighter brunette pieces. But the sun will not give you noticeably blonde highlights, it will only only softly lighten. This being said the much darker hair that is very textured will mostly not be affected by the sun due to the natural resistance built into dark hair. the sun can bleach your hair, akin to wood and paint fading. It erodes the pigment slowly over time. So the amount of time in the sun would have to be substantial. In the end, yes, the sun can lighten your hair, but it will not give you notice blonde pieces that you would expect from highlights. So if you want to be blonde don't expect to get anything from the sun, go see your hairdresser.
Excess use of shampoos can cause your scalp to overproduce sebum because you hair and scalp are being striped of sebum making your hair and scalp very dry. So your scalp starts to overproduce sebum to counteract the dryness. The overproduction of sebum clogs the hair follicles, which makes your scalp quite unhappy. So in conclusion, your hair will shed more if you wash your hair excessively and too much force can cause your body to overproduce oils. making your follicles more frail. Regular shampooing only a few times a week will result in healthier hair. Hair can still fall out due to unrelated issues, such as environment, medication, and overly processed hair. If you notice a over abundance of hair loss in the shower notify your doctor for good notice. Large hair loss is not normal and may be a symptom.
Not all shampoos need to have a big foaming up to get your hair clean, but people visually connect bigger the lather to a better clean. This is occasionally the opposite. Companies know that you want to see the lather and put ingredients to make it as foamy as possible, but clean your hair at a sub par level. So there is actually no connection between lather and how well the shampoo actually works. There are actually some higher end shampoos that don't even lather at all. Don't buy a shampoo solely on how it lathers up and makes massive foam, it probably isn't doing its job. Make sure you get a name brand shampoo. Even though the salon worthy shampoos may be more expensive, they are on a whole other level then the kind you pick up at Walmart. They are more expensive because they are much much better for you then the cheaper products.
Wearing a hat all the time won't cause you to go bald, but it's not without its side effects. Due to the lack of circulation to the scalp where the brim of the hat lies, this may cause the hair to thin due to a shortage of blood in the scalp. The hair will grow as normal when you stop wearing the hat nonstop; so the damage isn't permanent. Balding is caused by genetics, medication, or a medical condition and is not brought on by wearing a hat or any head wear. So as long as you let your scalp breathe, you shouldn't worry about losing any hair that is related to head wear.
