Hair Care



  • First of all, you have to choose a section of your hair from where you will begin combing. Hold that section towards the bottom. Start combing at the ends of the hair, making brisk and light strokes. Work upwards, until the tangled hair below your hand start to loosen. Now, comb the hair below your hand, making slow strokes. By now, you should be able to smoothly comb through that part of your hair, without any tangles. Move the grip of your hand a little higher on that section of the hair and repeat the first two steps, until you reach the top of that section. Finally, comb through all your hair and set them the way you like.

  • Check your hair for any major knots or tangles; these are best detangled by gentle fingers rather than the harsh teeth of combs. Detangle these, but be gentle; don't tear at your hair.

  • Start combing the end of the hair section and work your way up slowly until you have combed the entire section of hair.

  • You should brush your hair 100 strokes every night. Over-brushing the hair can lead to hair damage, such as split ends. If you are brushing your hair before bedtime, you should only brush it sufficiently to remove any tangles. You should also use a natural-bristle brush and work from the ends of the hair to the scalp.

  • As for combing dry hair, the idea was that a regular comb would snarl in long hair and worsen tangles. However, using a wide-toothed comb to detangle long hair is perfectly fine, as long as you always remember to treat the hair gently and with respect.

  • Never brush your hair when it's wet, and never comb it when it's dry. This hearkens back to the days before we had "brushes" with tines. Bristled brushes by their very nature pull the hair in hundreds of slightly different angles as the brush passes through the hair. When the hair is wet, it is swollen and weaker and brushing with bristled brushes can stretch and damage the hair. It is advisable to always use a wide-toothed comb on wet hair, but a brush that has widely-spaced tines is an acceptable tool for detangling wet hair.

  • If you have any products that help, like a leave in conditioner or detangler, then this is the time to apply them. Make sure you apply evenly, and let your hair absorb the product.

  • Sharing combs and brushes can cause dandruff. This is untrue. Dandruff is caused by a fungus that is found in everyone's hair. The difference between someone with dandruff and someone without dandruff is that the fungus responsible for dandruff isn't active in the person without it. That being said, sharing combs and brushes isn't a good practice because there are many other things that can be spread by sharing these implements.

  • Divide your hair into sections, depending on the thickness and length. Combing your hair in sections makes the job a lot easier and less daunting. Separate sections with hair clips or grips. Select one section to start with.

  • Move on to the next layer until all layers are complete. When your hair is finished, run your fingers through it gently to see if you missed any knots or kinks. Then enjoy your freshly combed hair.

  • Daily brushing makes hair grow faster. There are benefits to brushing the hair that are proven, specifically when using a natural-bristle brush. Brushing helps to remove dirt, and product build-up in the hair and from the scalp. It helps to distribute the natural oils produced by the follicles and glands of the scalp. It helps to stimulate the scalp to promote blood-flow and regulate the oil production. But there has never been any studies done that indicate daily brushing has any effect on the growth rate of the hair.

  • Brushing the hair is better for it than combing. This relates to our first myth at the top of the page. Your hair actually responds better to combing because it creates less stress on the hair and the stress it does generate is more uniform in nature. Brushing the hair became popular because brushes tend to work faster at removing tangles and smoothing the hair, but where a comb has a single row of tines that separate the hair into small clusters of strands, a brush has several hundred bristles that separate the hair into several hundred strands. The brush therefore creates more stress on the hair itself.

  • You can train your hair to follow a style by combing it in that style daily. As nice as this would be if it were true, it isn't. This myth is generally proffered by those who wear short hair styles (usually men). What generally happens is that it's the wearer of the style who becomes "trained" and finds it easier to create the desired look with his or her hair.
