Do 100 Brush Strokes a Day Really Make Hair Thicker and Shinier?

Hair becomes thicker, shinier, and healthier when you brush it 100 times a day — true or false?

Generations of women have grown up with the belief that the more you brush your hair, the better it looks. There are stories galore of women spending 30 minutes every night brushing their hair out while counting the strokes. Did it help?

Not really, a dermatologist would say. While you should never neglect brushing your hair, the number of brush strokes is not very important. What is more important is that you use the right brushing technique.

Brushing hair serves many purposes.

•Detangles hair and makes it straighter

•Removes accumulated dirt from hair

•Spreads sebum (oil present on scalp) evenly along the length of hair

•Promotes better blood circulation in scalp

If you want better looking locks, you need to ensure that you use the right brush and right brush strokes. Here are some tips to do it the right way:

•Do not brush hair the wrong way. Start detangling from the ends and move to the scalp gradually.

•Use a hard bristled brush for detangling hair. Once hair is free of tangles, use a soft brush to remove dirt from hair.

•Avoid brushing hair if it is wet. If you do brush it, make sure to use a wide toothed comb.

•Keep the brush clean. Once every two or three days, soak the brush in detergent solution and wash it.

•Avoid sharing brushes. You never know what organisms another person’s hair brush carries.

You should also avoid over-brushing your hair. If your hair is dry and you keep up the 100-strokes-a-day routine, you could develop split ends. Brush hair as much as needed, but don’t overdo it.

Thinning Hair

Sometimes, no matter how meticulously you brush hair, or use special hair care products, you will notice that your hair is thinning. A bit of thinning is not usually cause for worry, because hormonal changes (pregnancy, for example) impact hair growth patterns in most women. However, if you find that your hair does not regain its previous volume, or it looks dull and limp, you need to use quality hair care products.

Most shampoos in the market contain sulfates, which are harmful to hair, particularly color treated hair. Sulfates are the same compound found in detergents, and are present in shampoos in order to work up lather. Now that women have realized the dangers of such chemicals, they are looking for safer alternatives.

One product that immediately comes to mind is Keranique. Keranique hair products are sulfate free and safe for all types of hair, including color treated hair. Keranique products include a shampoo, conditioner, hair regrowth formula, follicle boosting serum, and mousse. The hair regrowth formula and follicle boosting serum should not be used together — call a Keranique product specialist to learn how to use the Keranique kit.
