Experts Bust 5 Common Hair Colour Myths

Myth #1: Colouring Makes Your Hair Thinner

The first commonly heard hair colour myth is that colouring can cause thinning hair. But, that’s completely false. Colouring your hair cannot make it thinner. In fact, hair volume is subject to the kind of hair care products you use, coupled with the diet you intake. A deficiency of vitamins and minerals in your lifestyle can make your hair thin out naturally.

Myth #2: Colouring Hair Damages It

This is a debatable fact that stands untrue since colouring hair does not ideally damage it. Choosing the wrong colour, mishandling the colour in an unprofessional manner, or relying on inexperienced colour experts may result in damage. Additionally, it is always advisable to stick to a hair care regime that contains a professional shampoo, conditionerhair mask and aftercare products that are colour-safe.

Myth #3: You Can Apply A Hair Dye Anytime

While it is true that a hair dye can be applied on any form of hair, it is recommended not to overdye hair frequently. It can tamper with the colour deposit giving you an undesirable result. 

Myth #4: It’s Difficult To Care For Coloured Hair

Another common hair colour myth is that it’s difficult to care for coloured locks. Colouring your hair alters its chemical composition, however, it is not difficult to maintain coloured hair. You can choose from a variety of colour-safe products like shampoos and conditioners that ensure the pigment stays intact, and your hair health is secure. You can choose the Probio Keratin Revive Shampoo and Probio Keratin Revive Mask from Godrej Professional on coloured hair.

Myth #5: Colouring Hair Can Quicken The Ageing Process

If you’ve ever been told that your hair might become grey sooner if you colour it, that’s a complete lie. There is no connection between hair dyes and your hair’s natural ageing process since ageing happens based on genetics. Your hair produces a natural melanin pigment. As you age, the production of this pigment stops which makes hair turn grey.
