In addition to regular washing, daily brushing is the most important prerequisite for a healthy scalp and shiny, strong hair. If you have longer hair, you should start with the brush to detangle the hair ends. Depending on how stubborn it is, more or less large strands of hair are divided off to make brushing easier and not to strain the hair too much. This can be a bit thorny, especially after you switch from conventional hair care to natural hair care - because your hair will need a few weeks until the chemical ingredients that made your hair combable have been replaced by the natural, nourishing sebum of the glands in your scalp. Now work the brush further and further towards the scalp until you reach the hairline. Once you've tamed your hair this way, brush the hair down its length with gentle pressure for about five minutes. It is important that you really put the brush on the scalp with each stroke and then slowly move it along the entire hair. This is the only way to distribute the sebum from the hairline to the tips. Again, if you're just starting out in natural hair care, please give your body some time. It is quite possible that your hair will feel drier or greasy in the first few days or weeks than with conventional hair care - but this usually goes away on its own after a while. Trust your body's ability to take care of itself - there's nothing better for your hair. For more information on this, see our article on brushing your hair
