The art of brushing your hair!

This is a gesture that may not mean anything to you. But the way you brush your hair is decisive for its health. You will find several tools on the market for brushing your hair, but the main one remains the hairbrush. In this column, I explain how to brush your hair with the best tools.
Brush your hair in the morning and evening for a few minutes and gently. For what ? Because this gesture rids the scalp and hair of dust, cells or dead skin. Therefore, it is important to brush the scalp. This has the effect of activating blood circulation which oxygenates the scalp and gives it a little more volume. When detangling hair, always start at the bottom of the hair, then work your way upwards gently. Avoid pulling too hard on the knots so as not to create breakages. Also detangle your hair with a comb after washing. Be aware that most brushes are not suitable for detangling wet hair.
Wooden brushes remain the best tools on the market. I also love boar bristle and acrylic brushes. If your hair produces a lot of static electricity, avoid nylon brushes at all costs, which will only make the situation worse. You should wash your brushes regularly with water and a mild shampoo. Leave to soak for two hours, rinse and air dry. Opt for a tool that cleans your brush thoroughly if hair often ends up at the bottom of your brush.
Here are the right actions to adopt when brushing your hair. Tilt your head down. First brush the nape of the neck up to the forehead. Remember that the brush should touch the scalp. For the sides of your hair, brush the left side of your head first and then work your way to the right. For the other side, do the opposite. Brush to the right of your head and move toward the left. Finish brushing in a movement from the forehead to the nape of the neck.
Brush your hair regularly for better scalp health. For the summer season, also remember to protect your hair from the sun with a hat, headband or scarf or by using a heat protection cream.
