Trichologist Dr Shahid Shamsher tells us of 3 hair practices which cause more damage than good.
1 – Shampoo your way to beautiful hair.
Any good shampoo can do only one thing for your hair – Clean it thoroughly. If you expect that your shampoo will also make your hair stronger, or longer or straighter, or give it more shine, more luster and also stuff with proteins and vitamins, and especially will do that because some actress/model being paid crores of rupees says it does, then get ready to be disappointed, because no shampoo can ever do those things.
2 – Oil your way to even more beautiful hair.
A popular brand of oil actually guarantees that using it will control your hair loss. Sounds very promising, except if you read the fine print. In the very bottom part of its advertisements, it states that this guarantee applicable only to those cases of hair loss which are not due to hereditary or medical reasons. Shocking isn’t it? After all if you rule out hair loss due to hereditary or medical reasons, then what is left is just normal hair loss. Is that what this oil guarantees to cure? Normal hair loss!!
3 – A women must have long hair
Even in these times I get women patients who tell me their in laws refuse to allow them to cut hair regularly. And these are not village folks. A lot of them are working women. Apparently their parents / in laws have no issues in them leaving home in the early in morning or coming late at night due to working long hours like any other man, but when it comes to her getting a hair cut done so it can be maintained more easily, it becomes an earth-shattering issue.
