Brushing the hair is vital. However, it loses its benefits when done with a faulty brush. The fiber can break and the lengths can deteriorate. Explanations.
Brushing is part of our daily hair care routine. Essential to their disentangling, it also contributes to their health as well as that of the scalp. The passages of the brush deliver a massage that stimulates the blood circulation to bring up the good nutrients at the level of the hair follicle. They also rid the scalp of dandruff, dust, and residue to give it a second wind and a healthy environment. Besides the fact that a brush needs to be cleaned often, it also needs to be changed regularly.
The life of a brush depends on the excellence of the material with which it was designed. Some very high-quality brushes can last for years. However, one only needs to look at his condition to see some signs that it is time for a change.
A sparse backing, with bristles and spikes that fall out or are damaged, indicates that the brush has reached a certain level of wear. It should be replaced. On the one hand, brushing the hair using such a tool is less effective. On the other hand, its beneficial action is reduced since it damages the hair. In contact with the pins and twisted or damaged bristles, the fiber can break, knots can be created, cracks can appear. This parameter can be exacerbated by aggressive brushing.
A true nest of germs, the brush should be cleaned according to the frequency of use. This should be done at least once a week or every two weeks. This lack of hygiene can make the hair greasy and dull, because the brush deposits, among other things, germs and bacteria.
Hair should be removed after each brushing. Deep cleaning of the accessory can be done with a mild shampoo or soap lathered up with hot water. The brush can be soaked overnight in hot water with four tablespoons of baking soda. White vinegar added to water can also do the trick. At the end of it, it should be thoroughly rinsed and dried. If the brush is designed in a wooden holder, night-time processes and the use of aggressive agents are strongly discouraged. It is best to wash it off with a little shampoo and water.
