Brush your hair. Don’t bash it.

The how, what, and why of your daily hair care regime!

Want to care for your hair? It’s all in the brushing. Sounds straightforward, but there are very few of us who really pay attention to the how, what and why of brushing.  If you do it wrong, it leaves you in tangles. Do it right, and it’s one small step for you, one giant leap for your hair.

1. Say No To Plastic
Plastic combs and brushes work up static - a hotbed for frizz and ultimately, breakage. Why not use
something that’s closer to the texture of hair itself- a natural, boar bristled brush? Or there’s the Mughal princess’ favourite – wood. Gentle on your hair and scalp. Gentle on your mood.

2. Tip-on-Top
Start with the tip, go to the root - not the other way around! As you get rid of your tangles at the ends first, your hair follicles will be saved the stress of getting pulled out! Brushing your hair is trickier than it looks!

3. Go Gentle On Your Locks
If you don’t have time, don’t let your hair know it. Brushing your hair gently avoids friction. No friction means lesser breakage and fewer damaged cuticles.

4. Wet Hair? Stay There
One of the lesser known facts is that hair has weak shafts. So if you try to brush it while your hair’s still wet, it breaks, followed closely by your heart. Avoid the tragedy and always use a wide-toothed comb on wet hair.

5. Detangle First. Brush Later
It's simple: Brushes brush, wide-toothed combs detangle. Use a wide-toothed comb first to detangle your hair and then use a brush to smoothen your hair out.

6. It’s Dirty And You Know It
Brushes have unwanted guests who have stayed back: stray hair, dust and grime, product build-up. And they’re most happy to find a new home in your hair. Which they do, when you don’t clean your brush. One of the most necessary hair care tips is to wash your hairbrush once in a week with shampoo and warm water. Foam, rinse, dry, repeat.
