We spend so much time in choosing the perfect lipstick for the perfect look; we try on different shades just to check which one will look the best in pictures. Have we given that amount of thought to our brushes when they are surely more important and can do a lot to the hair. Sure, we reach for the tool once we step out of the shower or when we have serious bedhead without second-guessing it, but when it comes to having good hair days, the actual brush you’re using can make all the difference. Choosing the right hair brush or the right comb for your hair is very important for the health of the strands. If you want to know what hair brush or comb is best for you, continue reading.
It is important to know the kind of hair you have. If your hair tends to get frizzy after the shower or after some hair treatment, you need to go for the comb. The wide teeth of the comb and the spaces give the hair the best de-tangle treatment it will ever need. It will also prevent it from breaking. You will lose lesser hair and your scalp won’t get damaged too. The combs tend to stay just in the hair strands and not get towards the scalp. It won’t damage the natural hairstyle or won’t ruin your ‘set’ curls. Brushes tend to do that.
Hair brushing, on the other hand, with a boar bristle brush stimulates the capillaries, increasing blood circulation in the scalp and transporting oxygen and nutrients to the hair stem, root and bulb. It also helps to balance the sebaceous glands by stimulating them and allowing them to breathe while retaining natural oils. It is naturally more beneficial for us and can de-tangle your hair in lesser time. This is a type of dry-shampooing too. If you brush your hair properly, you tend to clean it from the dirt and the dust helping you head out without spraying a dry shampoo to your hair. As this touches the scalp too, the sebum from the scalp will add constant shine to the ends of the strands giving it the natural look it needs.
No matter what you use, it is important to keep your hair brushed in some way or the other to keep the healthy and strong. Tangled hair tends to fall and break and we surely don’t want that!
