3 mistakes we all make when brushing our hair
We can sometimes make mistakes in our daily hair routine, without even realizing it, What if we quickly banished them?
1. Brush your hair from the roots to the tips
Whether it's with a brush or a comb, we often tend to brush our hair from root to tip. However, this is not a good idea, as it can lead to breakage of the fibers, especially if there are knots. Plus, it can lead to split ends and dozens of hairs being pulled out with each brushing.
What's best? First comb the bottom of your hair, i.e. the ends, and detangle them. Then move on to the mid-lengths, always doing the same thing. Repeat this process all the way to the roots. You can then use your brush from the roots to the ends.
2. Use a dirty brush or comb
For the best hair, you need to make sure you clean your hairbrushes regularly. Do it once a month if you only detangle, every week if you use leave-in care. This will remove any dandruff, hair or care residue. Also, hairbrushes with plastic bristles that have been used for too long can damage the hair, when the bristles break or become rough. In general, it's best not to keep your hairbrush for more than one or two years especially if it's not of very good quality.
3. Brush your hair with force
No, forcing your hair out of knots is not the way to get rid of them Brushing your hair vigorously will only do one thing: damage it. So proceed slowly and take the time to detangle each strand one by one. By holding the strand of hair you're combing at the root, you prevent too much tension from building up in the hair and making it more fragile.
