Healthier Hair In A Week

How can brushing increase hair growth?

  Hair like your body needs proper nutrition to be healthy. The hair receives its nutrition from the scalp. The scalp receives nutrition the same way the rest of your body does. From blood flow, and the faster the blood flow to your scalp. The more nutrition the scalp will receive. Thus healthier and possibly faster hair growth. 

    Proper brushing will also exercise your hair muscles. Yes each hair has a muscle that holds the hair in the scalp Proper brushing increases the strength of the muscle. This can reduce hair loss later in life. So as you can see proper brushing can have a healthy affect on your hair. One Must always remember that no one rule works for everybody. So if brushing does not feel right to you, then stop. Ask someone or email us with the problem you having!

    Now you see how brushing is one of the best and most inexpensive ways to keep your hair healthy.  Proper brushing is key to keeping healthy hair for most of us, and should be done once a day. Those of you who do this will find long hair care to be easier.  If you are planning to grow out your hair, then you need to make the commitment to brush everyday.

Brushing your way to longer hair!

   Proper brushing will produce healthier hair.  Improper brushing can be harmful to your hair. Leading to splitends and even hair loss.  Here are a few tips to keep in
mind before brushing. 

    Never brush wet hair!

Why?

  Hair like paper is weaker when wet. Water changes the structure of hair. The weakening of the structure will lead to over-stretching of the hair. Even damp hair can become damaged easily.

So only comb or pic wet hair.

Remove all snags before brushing!

Why?

    Brushing through a tough snag almost always leads to some hair loss. So be gentle with your hair at all times.


Brushing Routine

Add this to your daily routine.

  After removing all the snags and tangles from your hair. Bend over at your waist, and pull all of your hair over your head.  Holding your boar bristle brush by the handle. Begin by taking slow strokes. Starting at the neck hairline stroke down through the scalp to the ends of your hair.  Follow each brush stroke with palm of your other hand to reduce static electricity.  It is critical to brush through the scalp in each stroke. As this transfers the scalp's natural sebum oil from the roots to the loner lengths where it is most needed. This will both nourishing and smooth the stands. Those with oily hair will benefit the most from this brushing.  


   Normal Hair

   Start the first day of brushing with twenty strokes.  Add ten brushing strokes per day until you reach 50 to 100. More than 100 brushing strokes at a time may be too much for your hair.  Remember that bending over at the waist, and brushing from the neck to the ends is key for receiving the best results.


   Oily or Fine Hair

   Start the first day of brushing with ten strokes. Add five brushing strokes per day until you reach 50 to 100. More than 100 brushing strokes a day may be too much for your hair.  Remember bending over at the waist, and brushing from the scalp to the ends are key for receiving the best results.

   By adding the correct brushing technique to your hair care routine. You will bring a noticeable difference in your hair in less than a two weeks with 50 strokes or more a day. 


    Brushing from the scalp is vital!

Why?

  1. Transfers sebum oil to the ends.

  2. Strengthens the follicle muscle around the hair, making the hair hold in place longer.

Curly Hair Brushing
   The first thing to learn about curly hair is that you want to be extra careful when brushing. Brushing can be very rough on some types of curly hair. As with all hair types you need to remove all snags and tangles before brushing. This is especially true for curly hair. 


    Curly Hair

   Start the first day of brushing with ten strokes.  Add five brushing strokes per day until you reach 50 to 100. More than 100 brushing strokes a day may be too much for your hair.  Remember bending over at the waist, and brushing from the scalp to the ends are key for receiving the best results.

   After brushng apply oil to your hair. Oil your hair often - every night, if you do not have oily hair. Choose oil that is good for hair. Suchas jojoba, olive or coconut oil. Use just enough oil to coat your hair with moisture. So after a week, your
curls will be healthy and soft to touch. Never under estimate the power of long curly locks!

   Wet curly hair behaves differently on each person.  Some curly heads should not even pic their hair when wet.  You should already have a feel for what is best for your curly hair when it is wet.

    Two Keys to Healthy curly Hair.

Are!

   1. Gentleness at all times.

    2. Proper moisture makes the curl

   Curly hair thrives in high humidity. So in dry areas, or dry environments created by winter. Extra moisture must be given to your curls! Check your hair for dryness and apply some oil accordingly. You may need to do it two or three times each day.  Very cold weather brings very dry climates both inside and out.  Apply a leave in conditioner to your curls being generous at the ends.  This will give your hair extra protection against the dryness.
