Did you know that the worst time to brush your hair is when it is dry, and when it is wet it’s most likely to break? So when is the right time to brush your hair you ask? The answer is to NEVER brush it. Combing curly hair is the best way to detangle with little to no damage. Water makes your hair get tangled easily and friction is caused between dry hair and your brush this is one of the reasons why your hair gets frizzier when you brush it. The best way to comb your hair is while you are in the shower with your fingers or a wide tooth comb like this after you have applied conditioner. The conditioner acts as a a de-tangler and it is heavy so there is little to no friction.
Did you know that your scalp makes natural oils that nourish your hair, these oils help to moisturize and keep your hair healthy and strong. People who have straight hair usually have to wash more often because it gets oily fast. However when you have curly hair the oils take longer to reach the tips because it has to go through all the winds and curves it the hair strands, this can take a few days depending on the person. Washing your curly hair every day can lead to dry and weak hair, when you do shampoo your hair only apply shampoo to the roots! NEVER THE ENDS!

The suds in your shampoo are caused by sulfates, sulfates are in
“90% of soaps, shampoos, conditioner, shower gels, shaving cream, facial cleansers, detergents, toothpastes, mouthwash, dish soap, cleaning products, cosmetics, lotions and other products that “foam” and “bubble.”-Lana Loketff
Do you really wanna use the same chemical that is in detergent and cleaning products on your scalp?! I don’t think so.. Sulfate has alcohol in it that dries out your hair and scalp, this is why your hair feels so nasty after shampooing. An easy fix is to buy a sulfate free conditioner. Remember, moisture is the key to healthy hair, and dry hair will surly lead to split ends!
