Are you using the right brush for your hair?

The task of a good accessory is to get results like the hairdresser, reducing the time of use of the dryer and avoiding any damage to the tips.

The hair must be combed at least once or twice a day, so as to eliminate dust and impurities that are deposited daily on the scalp, obstructing the hair bulb. In fact, not breathing properly, the hair weakens and loses its shine and vitality. Therefore, never buy brushes for their appearance or worse for the reduced cost, but for their functionality.

Generally, they are divided into two broad categories: pneumatic and round.
The former are ideal for combing and eliminating knots. From different thickness, they have bristles more or less long, in plastic or in wild boar.
Round brushes, on the other hand, are the queens of styling, perfect for hairstyles. Thermal or with aluminum tube, they can have nylon bristles, boar bristles or in reinforced boar (the combination of both materials). The handle can be made entirely of wood or plastic.

The choice of the type of brush has an important role, especially if you suffer from sensitive scalp. To keep it healthy, you need a moisturizing treatment, perhaps based on Argan oil, and replace your old brush with one with wide bristles and large round tips.

In addition to perfectly untangling the hair, it slides gently between the strands and also dispenses a pleasant massage that reactivates the blood circulation.
