Today’s Healthy Hair Tip: Use a Wide Tooth Comb for Thicker Hair
Making the switch to a wide tooth comb from your everyday brush seems a little weird, right? There are a lot of people that think they serve two entirely different purposes. The fact is, they don’t and making that simple change can have huge benefits. Brushing your hair, especially vigorous brushing or with harsh bristle brushes can literally rip your hair apart. Not only does this break pieces off, it pulls healthy strands completely out, especially when the hair is wet. Over time this leaves your hair weak and lifeless.
Using a wide tooth comb gently detangles the hair so it decreases breakage and shedding which will keep your hair strong. Strong hair strands are thicker, creating an overall fuller head of hair. Sounds easy for some, but I know that using a comb like this won’t work for everyone every day. If you have a hair type where a wide tooth comb isn’t ideal for primary use, consider working it into your hair routine in some way. Decreasing brush use to a few times a week can make a difference. Remember it’s really important to be gentle; patience is the key to avoid breakage while detangling your hair. The best thing about today’s tip is that wide tooth combs are inexpensive. Even the best brands are under $5 so it’s at least worth giving it a try.
Healthier, thicker hair is within reach!
