Beauty advice can have its ups and downs sometimes, but it’s always fun to share. Most of the time the tips we share and try actually work. There’s always a few myths out there to watch out for, but all in all there’s always so much to learn, so here are 13 things about beauty you may not have known before.
Keratin is the protein that hair is made from. It’s also added into a lot of hair care products. One thing most people may not know is that Keratin also forms the outer layer of skin and fingernails.
There’s always the battle between using cold, or hot water to wash your hair. Cold water is amazing, because it seals your cuticles and creates shine. Sealing the cuticles also helps to retain moisture.
This is a big one, that some may not like to hear. We’ve all had products that said they would heal and, or cure our split ends. This isn’t true, sadly there is no cure. The only cure for split ends is to trim them off.
Melanin is the beautiful protein that’s responsible for our skin tones. Everyone has melanin, it’s just a matter of how much. What you may not have known is that melanin is also responsible for eye color as well.
Dandruff does not mean that you have dry hair. I know that’s been the story for forever, but it’s not the case. Dandruff is actually a result of oily production on the scalp. I know I sound crazy, but dandruff is Oil and dead skin flakes. A solution is trying to use products with less oil.
When it comes to washing your hair with hot water there are some advantages. Hot water is great for cleaning your hair. It rinses away dirt and oil easier. The downside is that the heat can cause frizzing and dullness to color treated hair.
7.Toothpaste On A Pimple
Toothpaste on a pimple is an old school beauty secret. Although this has worked wonders for most of us, using this as your solution every time isn’t good. Excessively using the toothpaste can irritate your face. This trick is best for emergencies and times where you don’t have your pimple treatments.
There’s been an interesting trending topic for washing your hair with beer. It’s said that beer will make your hair stronger, thicker, and shinier. Beer has protein that can repair your hair, but the alcohol will just make your hair dry and brittle over time.
Hair shedding is actually quite normal, so don’t get too upset over a few loose strands. You can naturally shed between 20-100 hairs a day. Anything more than that should be managed and treated.
Trimming your hair doesn’t make your hair grow faster, but it does get rid of ugly split ends. Some would say that regular trims are healthy for hair growth. They aren’t. Chopping split ends just means that your ends are healthy.
There’s a beauty myth stating that adding collagen to your skin, produces more collagen. Collagen is definitely needed, but the only way to boost it is with vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances.
12.Straightening Curly Hair To Trim It
Most people believe that curly hair should be straightened before trimming. Trimming curly hair is not always easy, but straightening it is not the way to go. Your new trim may look good straight, but once your curls form, you may realize that it’s too short.
13.Drug Store vs. Professional Hair Products
This is not to throw shade at drugstore products. Drugstore products are great and can really work wonders for your hair. The truth is that professional hair products will work better if the ingredients are of a higher quality. You get what you pay for.
