Tips for combing hair:

  • To choose the best comb/brush, you must take into account the nature of your hair (soft or hard, short or long), convenience and style.
  • Combing/brushing should be done with the greatest of care. If you comb/brush your hair without any care, you can cause damage to your hair.
  • Combing/brushing hair should be done gently. Vigorously stroking your hair can encourage hair falling.
  • Do not comb/brush wet hair. First dry your hair with a towel and then put some oil or conditioner on your hair and gently massage it in. After this is done, the combing/brushing will be easier and reduce the chance of damaging your hair.
  • Combing or brushing hair in the opposite direction of the natural pattern of growth should be avoided. This will cause hair falling.
  • Combing or brushing in a backward direction can cause traction baldness.
  • Frequent combing/brushing can damage the hair follicles and the scalp. Combing or brushing your hair 2 or 3 times per day is sufficient.
  • The tooth of the comb/brush must not be sharp. The comb/brush should not be pressed too tightly on the scalp while combing or brushing.
  • Clean the comb/brush before and after use in order to prevent hair and dirt from being deposited in the gaps. Combing or brushing hair with a dirty comb/brush can be difficult and painful.
  • Do not use other people’s combs or brushes. This will prevent the spread of fungal and bacterial infections.
