Brushing: The Key to Luscious Hair

Apr 9, 2008
Could you possibly resist an offer which guaranteed:

Free!! No coupons. No box tops. Shining, healthier, more manageable hair in a matter of weeks.

Plus these extra attractions:

Clearer skin. Dandruff routed. Dry or oily hair conditions improved.


Next to cleanliness, nothing, not even twelve sessions with the world's most highly acclaimed stylist, can do more for every single hair on your head than faithful, firm, dig-in-deep and pull-up-and-out brushing.

Are you afraid brushing will ruin your set? It won't. It will only help it. Or is it just plain laziness which keeps you from giving your hair its daily calisthenics. After all, hair itself can't do the limbering-up exercises it so desperately needs.

Just like your fingernails, which feel no pain when you cut them, visible hair shafts are a mass of dead cells and there's nothing you can do naturally to beautify them.

But you can do a world of good for the living roots down deep in your scalp which determine the way every single hair on your head will look when it grows out - by brushing. Vigorous brushing, shampooing and massage send the blood's vital nutrients rushing to each root and thus sheen and beauty to your hair.

Try animated hair brushing for two weeks. And while we can't make any money-back guarantees, we know you won't want one. Your hair will look more vital than it has since you started letting your hairbrush gather dust on your dresser.

A busy routine is no excuse for shirking. There must be several times a day you can fit in twenty-five strokes out of the proverbial one hundred or two hundred. And once you get in the habit you'll never want to break it.

Not when you find out how invigorated you feel as a result. Once you establish a regular rhythm you'll find you can do your lock limbering in a matter of minutes.

Brushing does many beautiful things to your hair:

1. It gives it the silken sheen men love.

2. It encourages rather than destroys new settings and makes fresh permanents look more natural.

3. It vacuums dust-trap hair and cleanses the scalp, both of which pick up at least ten times more dust and grime than your skin.

4. It corrects dry hair by distributing natural oils the entire length of each hair shaft.

5. It lubricates hair tips and discourages unattractive splitting.

6. It corrects oily hair by tending to normalize the function of oil glands which surround each hair.

7. It makes thin hair look more fluffy.

8. It makes thick hair look more controlled.

9. It attacks the snags in curly hair and makes it more manageable.

Starting at the nape where so many nerves are centered, brush forward to the very end of each hair until your head has been completely encircled. Now, section off hair and again brush each section from roots to tips.
One-two-three-four. Before you know it, you've reached one hundred.

The act of brushing begins by keeping hair roots up.

Throw head forward, bend from waist as you wield your hair beauty's best friend. This upside-down approach starts blood rushing to your scalp. If you're too weary to stand, stretch out on your bed and let head hang over the edge as you stroke.

Hold only the handle of the brush. Fingers should never grasp the bristles or push against them. Pressure weakens bristles and causes them to break.

Always brush up and away from the scalp, never down. Dig deep into the hair and gently tug at scalp. This makes it possible for long bristles to massage the scalp and shorter ones to clean hair shafts.

If a girl's best friend is a brush, she should choose her friends carefully. Never scrimp or save on a hairbrush. The strength of the brush you use depends on your hair type.

Many experts endorse only natural bristle brushes. Although they are more likely to be more expensive, one of their advantages is a natural affinity for the hair. Both boars' bristles and human hair are composed of keratin.

Once you have begun, you will never want to stop this important beauty ritual.
