The more you cut your hair, the faster it grows: Myth or fact?

There are many hair-related age-old myths out there, and we lap it up without knowing the scientific truth.

Two examples are “never go out while your hair is still wet or you’ll get sick” and “the more you brush your hair, the healthier it gets”.

Well, for the first one, it’s not really because you’ll catch a cold but your strands are more vulnerable when wet. In cold weather, their water molecules can expand so your hair will likely break.

And brushing may pull out the strands that aren’t ready to fall out and break the healthy ones.

However, what about the claim where your hair will grow faster the more you cut it? Is that a myth or a fact? Hairstylist and makeup artist Miabella Ristorp has the answer.

“People think it’s the haircut that makes your hair grow, but it’s the haircut that makes your hair not break,” said the professional who has more than 15 years of experience in the industry working on top fashion shows and with supermodels.

You must be wondering, if you want to keep your hair long, why cut it at all?

The idea is to get only a tiny trim every once in a while in order to cut off the dry ends. Then you’ll only have healthy hair remaining and you can continue to grow it longer.

Ristorp said most of her clients with long hair get a haircut every six to eight weeks.

“I tend [to] tell my guests that have long hair to cut it more often, but just cut very little off,” she said.

“What happens is we often wait too long to trim. Then when we cut it, we need to cut a big chunk off. That doesn’t make us happy.”

Do you see it now? So make sure you trim regularly, okay?
