HAVE YOU ‘HAIRED’ THESE COMMON HAIR MYTHS?
Long, beautiful hair has been a status symbol in many cultures for the past few millennia, so it’s no surprise that hair care tips have circled the globe over the years. Among these tips are a fair number of myths; many of them have been debunked, but several are still widely believed today.
1. YOU SHOULDN’T DYE YOUR HAIRWHILE PREGNANT.
This myth has been circulating since modern hair dye became popular, but many researchers agree that the amount of chemicals your scalp absorbs when you dye your hair poses little risk to a developing baby. What’s more, many companies now have ammonia-free hair dyes, and some even offer organic, plant-based formulations that work just as well as their nonorganic counterparts.
3. RINSING YOUR HAIRWITH COLDWATER MAKES IT SHINIER.
2. TRIMMING YOUR HAIR EVERY SIXWEEKS MAKES IT GROW FASTER.
This myth is a little newer, and it likely came about because of another common skin care myth: Cold water “closes” your pores. Hair shafts don’t have any live cells, so they are not affected by cold or warm water. Cold water can technically cause the hair strands to lie flat, but anything you do to your hair afterward — blow-drying, towel-drying, or brushing — will negate this effect. Warm water is superior in terms of preserving hair health, as it removes built-up residue and restores your hair’s natural luster.
You’ve probably heard this age-old adage from various women throughout your life, but the truth is, your hair grows at a constant rate even if you cut it often. Many people still believe this myth because regularly trimming your hair leads to less breakage and flyaways, which creates the effect of healthier, thicker hair.

In the same vein, you need a plastic surgeon who truly cares about implant awareness, patient education, technique, and overall aesthetic.
Since March marked National Breast Implant Awareness Month, all of us here at Music City Plastic Surgery thought it would be a great time to point out how valuable it can be to find a surgeon who builds his or her practice on patient education about breast augmentation. For those of you who already have implants, and for those considering them, it’s necessary that you seek all avenues of information pertaining to this surgery. Which size implants are best suited to your body type? Can you breastfeed after receiving augmentation surgery? How long does the healing process take? What kind of implants does your surgeon use? These are just a few of the questions that might run through your mind if you are considering or have already received implants. Because breast augmentations don’t require a lot of time in the operating room, a lot of doctors believe they can offer them as a service. There are surgeons with other specialties touting their ability to provide
