Benefits of Brushing!
Cleanses Your Scalp
Brushing your hair everyday acts like dry shampoo and cleans out your scalp and removes dirt and grime from your hair. It also removes the toxic waste materials released via the hair. Brushing your hair can help your scalp remain healthy and dirt free.

Your hair has its own conditioning system that helps protect your hair from losing natural oils or sebum. Brushing your hair helps distributes this sebum all across your hair evenly. It get moisturised and makes it easy to take care of. Conditioned hair is not prone to breakage and frizz thus keeping your hair healthy.
Prevents Hair Loss
Brushing your hair regularly with a wooden brush improves blood flow from your scalp to your hair. This also boosts nutrients and hair growth to make your hair long and thick. Brushing increase the secretion of your natural oils or sebum that helps your hair to condition and makes it smooth and silky. This prevents hair loss and keeps your hair from getting greasy and undernourished.
How To Brush?
Select the right tools while brushing your hair – a wooden brush! Brushing with the wrong type of comb for your hair type can actually damage it badly. Curly hair should be brushed with a wide boar bristles brush only to avoid entangling and breakage.
Another thing to keep in mind is your posture while brushing your hair. Stand straight and bend forward while brushing your hair since this position increases the blood flow from your scalp to the tips. Brush gently at the crown, sides and near the nape of your neck. Flip your hair and back brush your hair as well.
If your hair gets stuck in the comb, untangle the lock with your fingers slowly. Never brush your hair when its wet and don’t overdo the brushing since that can make your head hurt and cause split ends.
