When it comes to hairstyling tools for frizzy hair, we always look to the latest hair straightener, hairdryer, or head wrap to work its magic on our hard-to-control locks.
But we often forget about the simplest tool of all: the brush!
There are many ways to brush your hair. But using the right—or wrong—brush can make or break your look. Yes, that sounds dramatic. But if your hair is frizzy after brushing, a simple switch-up can have your hair looking smooth and healthy again.
The reasons for brushing your hair can seem obvious, but it’s not just to get rid of those tangles. Brushing stimulates your scalp (which can help with hair growth) and moves your hair’s natural oils to the ends, helping strands look shiny.
But how much should you brush your hair? If locks are curly or tend towards frizz, it’s better to keep brushing to a minimum.
If you have thick curls, you may wonder, should you brush curly hair everyday? Again, don’t overdo it. The best way to brush your hair is to do it in the shower, while you’ve got a conditioner worked through your strands. This creates a barrier to protect your hair from breakage and snagging on the brush.
If you want to brush your hair when it’s dry, reach for a detangler like O&M Know Knott Conditioning Detangler to protect your tresses from any damage.
