5 Hair Brush Tips

Choosing the right hair brush can mean the difference between split ends and a healthy head of hair. Ditto for brushing properly. There was a time I didn’t think they type of hair brush I owned made a difference. Now I know better.

If you don’t think it makes a difference between getting a good-quality hair brush and or picking up for $.50 you couldn’t be more wrong. Check out some of these hair brush tips.
1. For long straight hair use what’s known as a paddle brush. Once you see it, you’ll know what I mean. It’s shaped like a paddle with a larger brush and handle than you’re average run of the mill hairbrush. I love mine.
2. Make sure your hair brush has balls on the tips. If not you’re asking for split ends and a sore scalp!
3. Clean your brush by “combing” out the hair and washing with a water and a bit of shampoo.
4. Use thermal brushes when blow drying your hair. These specially designed round brushes heat up better enabling them to hold a style.
5. Every time you brush your hair you release sebum. This is a good thing as it keeps your scalp from drying out. Brush two or three times a day to moisturize your scalp.
Also, a natural bristled brush is so much healthier for your hair than a nylon or synthetic bristled brush. While it may cost more money, you and your hair will be happier in the long run.
