If you guys are anything like me, you know that there’s always something you can do to improve your beauty routine! Today I thought I’d share a few tips on how to brush your hair properly. Hair care is super important because you wear your hair every day! Where you can change up your makeup or your outfit, your hair is there to stay. My hair can get a little bit frizzy or puffy (especially in the humidity!) but brushing it properly makes a huge difference! Here’s a few common mistakes you might make when brushing your hair, plus how to fix it!
1. Brushing your hair with your head up.
When brushing your hair, tilt your head downward, almost as if you were going to try and touch your toes. Brushing your hair this way stimulates your scalp both from bending over and from the brush’s bristles. This promotes hair growth and a healthy scalp!
2. Brushing your hair wet.
Brushing your hair wet causes more breakage than when you brush it dry. To prevent puffiness when brushing your hair, use a smoothing serum! Now, I have to note that if you have curly hair or want to detangle your hair, it’s totally okay to use a wide tooth comb on wet hair, just make sure to use detangler to protect your hair!
3. Using the wrong brush.
You’ll need a brush that’s meant for your hair type (check out this article to see what brush is best for you!) A paddle brush is the most universal brush to use. To avoid puffiness, do not use a comb on your hair, especially when its dry.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to brush your hair properly! When I learned these tips, it made such a difference! Which of you guys are guilty of these mistakes? Let me know in the comments!
