Did you know that one of the easiest, but most important scalp care tips is brushing your hair? It helps get rid of all the accumulated waste materials like uric acid crystals, acids, catarrh, and other impurities encrusted on the scalp.
However, it’s effective and useful only if you do it right. The wrong brushing techniques using the wrong brushes may end up doing more harm than good when it comes to hair care.
So what should I do? How should I brush my hair?
These are the obvious questions that come to mind now. Well, you just have to be gentle while brushing your hair. Make sure you don’t overdo things. You get a better understanding if you imagine what may happen to your woolen sweater if you keep brushing it about fifty times a day.
It eventually frays and wears out, right? This is exactly what happens to your hair too.
Another tip to remember is to avoid brushing your hair unless using a quality detangling brush like NuWay 4Hair when it’s wet. If you wonder why, it’s because your hair swells by as much as 20-30% when wet. So if you end up roughly brushing it, there’s a risk of it snapping like a rubber band.
What should I do then when I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to dry my hair?
The best thing you can do to avoid unnecessary breakage is by using a detangler brush like Nuway 4Hair brush to remove all the tangles after you wash your hair. It’s always better to start from the ends and move upwards while detangling your hair.
Why? What happens if I brush my hair from top to bottom?
Brushing your hair through tangled hair from top to bottom leaves you pulling your brush roughly through your hair. This in turn not only ends up worsening tangles but also causes breakage and is not good for scalp care because you may end up scratching your scalp.
You can also use a de-tangling spray when you brush your hair in the morning, or anytime you brush knotted hair. It helps remove tangles. However, if you have a hairbrush like DoubleC Brush, then it’s not necessary. NuWay 4Hair brushes are ergonomically designed to safely detangle your hair without stressing both your hair and hands.
This is not all. Cleaning your hair brush is another important hair care aspect. If you wonder why, it’s because your hair brushes and combs too tend to collect dirt even if indoors.
Why do I have to clean my hairbrush or comb?
Cleaning them regularly prevents the dirt from reaching your hair and scalp.
Besides, it’s not a big chore. You just have to dissolve some washing-up liquid in a basin of water.
Then add some antiseptic liquid for added hygiene before dipping and swirling your hair brush in it. You then just have to rinse it with clean water and wipe it to have a clean hair brush ready for your beautiful hair!
