If you’re anything like me, then you are probably always looking for new ways to make your hair look better. Whether it be from a new style or just a little extra pep in its step, there is no shortage of ways to give that luscious locks of yours the appearance it deserves. When it comes to keeping your hair clean at home, we opt for shampoos and conditioners over other methods such as using a wet brush or even using our hands to scrub our scalp and get rid of any dirt. The wet brush is an effective tool that can remove excess oils and dirt from the scalp with ease. It also keeps your hair in excellent condition and prevents build-up of oils which leads to greasy hair. In this blog post, we will be discussing some effective strategies if you want to use a wet brush regularly so that your hair stays clean and healthy.
How To Use a Wet Brush
– Before You Begin Shampooing – If you are going to use a wet brush for the first time, make sure you choose one that is small enough for your hair. It should be about as tall as your palm and about as wide as your thumb. It should be made from a soft material, like natural boar bristles. You can also use an old toothbrush to brush your hair, or use a hand brush. If you are going to use a wet brush regularly, it is important to wash it with warm water and antibacterial soap. This will sterilize the brush, ensuring you don’t have any scalp infections. When you are ready to begin, gently comb your hair to distribute the shampoo evenly. Next, run the brush through your hair to remove any excess product and to distribute the product evenly through your hair. This is one of the easiest ways to keep your hair clean and free of build-up.
Hands-Free Wrapping Method
When it comes to keeping your hair clean with a wet brush, there is no doubt that the hands-free method is the most effective. Using a wet brush will leave your hair clean and soft, without pulling on your scalp. You can easily use your hands to wrap your hair, which will also help clean your hair, but it will not remove excess oils from the scalp like a wet brush can. This method is especially useful if you have longer or heavier hair. It works best when you have water running in the sink so that the brush can easily move through your hair. Once you have washed your hair, you can use your hands to wrap it loosely around the brush. This will allow the brush to easily remove excess oil and dirt from the scalp.
Deep Conditioning Treatment (DC Tug-O-War)
If you have curly or thick hair, the best way to clean it is with a DC tug-o-war method. You need to take the end of your brush and run it under the running water. The water helps loosen up the dirt and oils in the hair and allows the brush to easily remove them. Next, you need to take your other hand and gently pull your hair to the side and then back away from your head. This will create separation between the layers of your hair and allow the brush to easily remove dirt and oils from the scalp.
Brush While Conditioning (BWC)
This is an excellent method to use after you have washed your hair with a DC shampoo. While your hair is still wet, use the brush to gently remove any remaining product and oil. Another benefit of doing this is that it will help you retain the moisture in your hair while also removing any excess oil and dirt. This is a great way to use a wet brush after washing your hair with a conditioning treatment.
DC Dry Shampooing
If you have fine or thin hair, you may have noticed that the more expensive shampoos don’t necessarily leave your hair any cleaner than the cheaper shampoos. DC dry shampoos are designed for this very purpose. They are not meant to be used on their own, but as a second-step treatment after using a regular shampoo. They are designed to help any existing product build-up in your hair, which will make it easier to remove with a dry brush or towel. You can find dry shampoos that are scented, or that are designed to be used with a blow dryer. They usually come in an aerosol can or pump bottle. You simply spray a small amount on your hair, wait a few seconds while the product sinks in, and then brush it out with a dry brush.
DC Tug-O-War DC Tug-O-War
This is an excellent method to use after you have washed your hair with a DC shampoo. While your hair is still wet, take the end of your brush and run it under the running water. The water helps loosen up the dirt and oils in the hair and allows the brush to easily remove them. Next, take your other hand and gently pull your hair to the side and then back away from your head. This will create separation between the layers of your hair and allow the brush to easily remove dirt and oils from the scalp.
There is no doubt that the wet brush is one of the most effective tools when it comes to keeping your hair clean at home. It is gentle enough to use on your scalp, but can get rid of excess oils and dirt that cause buildup and greasy hair. Depending on the type you choose, you can even use a wet brush to style your hair as well. It is important to remember that using a wet brush is better than using your hands. It will keep your hair cleaner, without contributing to build-up or damage. It is important to remember to clean your brush every few uses with soap and water to avoid any infections. It is also important to note that your brush should be replaced every 6 months to a year to prevent it from becoming unhygienic.
