A bristle brush has been in use for a long time – since the 18th century. Ever since then it’s been used for styling hair and brushing it, without causing any damage. The benefits of a bristle brush are wide – here we’re going to explain some of them to you.
Why use a boar bristle brush
The bristle brush has been designed originally to improve the texture of hair. Have you heard the saying that says “you should brush your hair 100 strokes a day?” This originated from bristle brushes and the effect they have on hair. Needless to say, 100 strokes a day is clearly too much and not recommended.
How to use a boar bristle brush
By using a boar bristle brush you will actually change your hair texture to be smoother and softer. As an owner of a bristle brush I can confirm that it does deal with my frizzy hair and instead of the bedhead curl, it changes it into a lovely wave. As from what I’ve read, it does help with extremely curly and frizzy hair as well, de-tangling them and settling the hair into a wave.
If you have straight hair, you can use it to give your hair a natural soft curl which looks effortless.
It’s been found that it also gives your scalp a massage, stimulating new hair growth. If you’re trying to grow your hair, or are losing them – this is the brush for you. The hair becomes softer and healthier, and it can replace your conditioners for good. After brushing, your hair will feel as soft as having your hair conditioned, but without actually conditioning them. The less chemicals you add in your hair, the better it is.
To get the best result, section your hair and spend a good minute making sure that you got from the roots of the hair to the end of the hair. It’s also good for hair extensions such as clip ins, weft or tape hair extensions, as it doesn’t jeopardize pulling out hair.
