• Combing is less detrimental than brushing

o When the hair is wet, it is stretched out and therefore very fragile. So use a wide toothed comb on damp hair rather than a brush.

• Correct shampooing will not dry out the hair

o Try using a professional product. Store bought shampoos are too strong for most hair types. Imagine shampooing your hair with Tide or Cascade! Kerastase and Davines are our favorite product lines!!!!

• Wet hair should not be rubbed since hair is very sensitive

o Most of the time, you probably towel dry your hair too roughly. Try just blotting the hair with a towel or squeezing the towel around your hair to get the moisture out.

• Hormone imbalance and crash dieting can trigger temporary hair loss

o Don’t stress! It’s just temporary. But if the problem persists, you need to consider using Bain Densitive shampoo and conditioner by Kerastase.

Here are some other interesting facts

• On average, a man spends about five months of his life shaving, shaving about 20,000 times.

• On average, a hair strand's life span is five and a half years.

• On average redheads have 90,000 hairs. People with black hair have about 110,000 hairs.

• Humans have about the same number of hair follicles as a chimpanzee.

• The average human head weighs about eight pounds.

• The reason why hair turns gray as we age is because the pigment cells in the hair follicle start to die, which is responsible for producing "melanin" which gives the hair colour.

• The fastest growing tissue in the human body is hair.
