One of my favourite hair care tools for achieving healthy hair is a wooden bristle brush. They’re wonderful for all hair types and truly make a difference! If you’re wanting to learn about the many benefits of using a wooden brush and how I use them in my natural hair care routine, continue reading.
How do you brush your hair with a wooden brush?
I first get any major knots/mats out by either finger combing, using a detangler brush, or using a wide-tooth wood comb. Then I use my wooden brush and start at the ends of my hair and work my way up to the scalp. It’s important to start at your ends to prevent ripping your hair out. Being gentle is key! Take time and really massage the scalp. I sometimes like to flip my hair over and brush the nape of my neck down to the ends of my hair. It feels so good! Brush your hair morning and evening to prevent tangles and mats. You can see detailed instructions on how I brush my hair in the video below.
How do I wash my brush?
I remove the excess hair from my brush every few days. You can use a chopstick to help you do this. If you feel your bristles are getting a residue on them, you can simply wash the bristles with a bit of gentle shampoo and water.
