Myths Surrounding Using A Hair Wax

Makes Hair Greasy

When you think of hair wax, there is a misconception that it might leave your hair greasy. However, that greasy hair situation would only occur if you are not using the right professional shampoo. Hence, it all depends on the oil content of the hair wax.

  • Leads To Hair Loss

    There is a huge misconception around hair waxes causing hair loss. This is untrue as hair wax does not have any alcohol and hence, it won’t dry your hair follicles. If you are already suffering from hair loss, refrain from using hair wax.
