Can brushing your hair damage it?

As part of your daily routine, brushing your hair can seem harmless, but is it really? The truth is that hair brushing can be great for your hair, if you follow a few simple rules.

Normally, 50–100 strands of hair fall out everyday. If you feel like your hair falls out at a faster rate, your hair might be thinning out, which is caused by stress or your hormones. Keranique has a variety of products that have helped over one million women regrow their hair.

To avoid damaging your hair, never overbrush it. Brush to detangle, but only when you need to. Wet hair is also more susceptible to damage, so brush before your shower, or comb your hair gently right after conditioning.

Try using a higher quality brush. Cheaper brushes can lead to split ends, so avoid using the inexpensive plastic kind, and get a Boar Bristle Brush. These brushes are more gentle, and just as effective.
