Common Misconceptions in Hair Care
Are organic ingredients not as effective as non-organic products?
Myth: Although the chemical content of non-organic certified products may be perceived as providing faster results, these results are not long-term. The content of organic certified products, consisting of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, is developed directly to create a permanent impact on human health (and the health of the planet).
Is it healthier for hair to change shampoo at regular intervals?
Myth: If the shampoo one uses is good for one's hair, one will get good results every time. So, if you are happy with your shampoo, there is actually no reason to change it.
Is the hair structure of men and women the same?
Correct: Hair has no gender. Scalp problems can be seen in everyone. The most important thing is to follow a care routine that ensures the sebum balance of the scalp and gives elasticity and strength to the hair strands.
We might think that personal care products that claim to be prepared with natural ingredients are the same as organic certified products?
Wrong: If you do not know exactly how and under what conditions the ingredients called natural ingredients are produced, and the conditions of their collection, storage and processing, you can be sure that they are not the same as products produced through organic certification processes.
Is shampooing every day bad for hair?
Myth: There is no ideal amount of times to shampoo your hair per week. Someone who washes his hair every day can also have healthy hair. What really matters is the content of the product you use. It has high foaming (high surfactant) and softening effects (high silicone derivative content), so if you wash it every day with a product that has high chemical content, you may be damaging your hair and scalp in the long term. But if you use a product that you are sure has natural ingredients and does not dry out your scalp, you do not need to feel bad about washing more frequently.
More foam means cleaner skin, cleaner hair.
Myth: Obtaining less foam when shampooing your hair or using shower gel does not indicate that the product is not effective enough. On the contrary, we can say that the amount of foaming is a factor that reduces the quality of the product and threatens human health in general, since it is caused by chemical agents added to such products. Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS), the cheap chemical used as the most common foaming agent in many personal care products from shampoo to shower gel and even toothpaste, is absorbed into the body through the skin and causes more serious health problems in the long term than allergic reactions. It is now a known fact.
Is it normal to use more shampoo to create more lather?
Wrong: We said that using shampoo every day (assuming that the product you use has natural ingredients) is not harmful to the health of your hair. But using too much shampoo can be harmful to the health of your hair. Organic certified products provide foaming properties unlike industrial cosmetic products. It does not contain chemical surfactants. Therefore, they foam less compared to these products, at least when they are first used. If you take more shampoo to get more foam, you will consume more than you actually need and you will risk the correct application of the shampoo by massaging your scalp. The best way is to apply a small amount of shampoo in your palm, massage it into your scalp and stimulate blood flow in your skin to achieve healthier hair.
