Are there really benefits of brushing your hair daily? You better believe it. For you natural hair care enthusiasts, these benefits are pretty exciting. I mean, talk about a non-toxic approach to getting beautiful hair. Yes, please!
Proper hair brushing and scalp massaging are two of the most important elements in the maintenance and rejuvenation of healthy, naturally beautiful hair. The only other elements that are more beneficial to hair brushing is a nourishing diet and a positive mind set.
BENEFITS OF BRUSHING YOUR HAIR
Brushing Your Hair with a Boar Bristle Brush is Cleansing
Did you know that brushing your hair is a form of dry shampooing! Proper brushing can eliminate waste materials and impurities that build up and become encrusted on the scalp.
HOW TO BRUSH YOUR HAIR FOR FULL BENEFITS
1. Get the right tools.
My all time favourite is the wide tooth comb. Be it in a rush or oiling or styling for a high ponytail or just let loose , it’s all in one.
Also easy to wash and carry anywhere
2. Get your brush on.
Stand straight and then bend over from the waist as far as you can. This gets the blood flowing ,which helps in the whole process. Brush through the areas of the nap, sides, and crown of the head, moving all the way to your frontal facial hairline. Brush slowly, with easy strokes, for 3 – 5 minutes. Stand up slowly, and repeat the process standing upright.
3. Brushing vs. Detangling.
The benefits of hair brushing are numerous, but it’s important to make the distinction between hair brushing and detangling. You should also detangle your hair before styling and brushing. Use a wide tooth comb. Do not use your boar bristle brush to try and detangle.
4. When to brush
For the biggest bang for your buck, and to really reap the benefits of hair brushing, it’s recommended that you brush 3 times a day: Morning, late afternoon, and before bed. If you’re like me you’re probably thinking; Yeah, right. ‘Aint nobody got time for that. I generally brush twice a day and prevent hair fall !!!
5. Don’t forget the scalp massage!
I always emphasis on my head massage for the circulation and growth
