Reduce excessive brushing

As much as you wish your hair is in place all day, brushing it too often can lead to  excessive hair loss. It is important to brush your hair lesser number of times to let it relax and breathe on its own.

Never brush wet hair

It is a no-no to brush wet hair in an attempt to de tangle it. It creates unwanted force and stress on the hair follicles that increase its chances of breakage. Use a wide teeth comb to untangle wet hair and if you must brush it, wait till its dry before you brush it. Always start from the bottom and work your way up. It is good to use a detangler product before you brush.

Clean your brush regularly

If you have a dirty hair brush its pointless to reuse it as this contributes to dirt build-up in your hair. For hygienic reasons, wash your brush regularly or invest in a new one. 

To clean your brush thoroughly, first remove any hair caught in the bristles and then run the brush under warm water. Add some shampoo or hand wash and work it into the bristles, creating a foam. Then rinse the brush off completely and set on a towel to dry.

There you have it, four simple and easy tips to keep in mind when brushing your hair. It is essential to pay attention to brushing hair as it can help minimise hair loss, atleast to a certain extent.
