I fell of the face of my blog. I apologize. So many of you have written to encourage me to write more. I truly appreciate it. So here I am. I’ve had a crazy 2014 and I will write about it when I’m ready. For now I want to shower you with hair tips. I am going to try to post one each day. But forgive me if I don’t. I have plenty of things that distract me from what I should be doing! Here we go with my first hair tip….
Prevent clogging up your drain by brushing your hair before you get in the shower.
My husband says it makes his teeth itch when he sees the baby Sasquatch that is left behind after I shampoo my hair. He has a HUGE problem with hair that is not attached to a head. Ironic since I’m a hairstylist and have random people’s hair collecting in my bra and shoes. I also get hair splinters!
You’ll lose about a 100 strands a day, normally. Maybe more if you tie your hair up constantly. Not only from breakage, but it accumulates in there especially if you aren’t thoroughly brushing your hair each day or letting your hair down from time to time. A great brush to use is a boar bristle brush. It smooths down the hair cuticle and leaves hair shiny and healthy. Don’t go nuts though, too much brushing isn’t good either.
And make sure you clean your brush. Don’t be nasty. Dirty brush = dirty hair
I typically always use a boar bristle brush for my blow outs. These type of brushes also feel amazing on the scalp and stimulate blood flow which helps with growth. It makes a huge difference in the appearance of the hair.
I also need to mention…don’t brush your hair when it’s wet. Detangle with a wide tooth comb, but don’t attack it with a paddle brush.
Give this tip a try and let me know how it goes for you!
Have a beautiful day!
