Hair Myth #5

Myth 5: Natural Oils Are Good For Your Hair

Truth: Any raw food products like honey, curd or oils like coconut oil, avocado oil, etc. can't penetrate your hair shaft deep enough to make any lasting improvement. They are all just good conditioners for your hair strands, but can’t promote hair growth or reduce hair fall.

You might also have heard that applying oil and leaving it overnight is ideal for promoting hair growth. However, that's not true. Even if you apply oil, leave it for 15 – 30 minutes and wash it off later, it gives you a great result.

Besides, natural oils are heavy and hard to wash off the hair. They can make your hair greasy and attract dirt and pollutants that can affect the overall look and health of your hair.
