What does brushing your hair 100 times before bed do?

I have heard of people that each night they brush their hair 100 times before going to bed.What does doing this do?



What does brushing your hair 100 times before bed do?

First of all, it depends on your hair type as well as the type of brush used. Thick, coarse hair is best brushed with a boar's hair brush, which helps to distribute sebum (our natural scalp oils) to the rest of the hair shaft, helping to soften and moisturize coarse hair which tends to be dry. For fine hair, it is best to use a wide-bristle brush (like a vent brush) or a wide-tooth comb. This helps to eliminate tangles in the hair. One very important thing: if you have medium to long hair, you should never begin brushing or combing your hair at the scalp, but from the ends and beginning a little higher each stroke,working towards the scalp, always following the direction in which the hair grows. This puts less tension on the hair and is a gentle way to release tangles and distribute natural oils.

Brushing also causes a good deal of abrasion, which strips the cuticle from the hair shaft, causing hair breakage and split ends. A smooth cuticle allows your comb and brush to glide through your hair, eliminating tangles. Leave-in natural conditioning vitamin treatments and detanglers such as Infusium 23 help by penetrating each hair shaft to correct damage, then restructures and smoothes the hair cuticle, giving it extra protection. Many of us have heard that one should brush one's hair 100 times every night before bed to make it shiny and manageable. In the days of weekly baths and crude soaps this was good advice since brushing so many strokes disperses the natural oils and removes some of the excess oil and dirt. Now people shower more often and have numerous conditioning products to choose from, so this practice is no longer necessary. It is normal to lose 50-100 hairs a day. Be sure to choose a brush designed for your hair length, thickness, and texture.



Always use a natural bristle brushes made from boar or other natural, non-synthetic or petroleum materials. Many people use brushes and combs made from harsh chemicals and synthetic matericals that are petrolleum based which irritate the scalp and cuticle. It is also very important to make sure that your combs are handmade and NOT made from a poured mold with a seam along the teeth edges and made from natural cellolose acetate that does not irritate the scalp. Combs are usually pressed in a plastic processing machine in thousands. This machine creates a comb by putting two molding units together and pressing plastic into it. A side effect is that in the middle, between the units, a small rand still remains. This is usually just in the middle of the flat side of a comb, and hence also between each comb tooth. When you comb your hair, and you try to get beyond a tangle with force, your comb or brush works like a knife cutting or scratching your hair. Good combs and brushes are expensive, as most of them need to be post-processed by hand. Handmade combs are cut with handsaws and the teeth are polished so that they are smooth enough to slide easily through the hair resulting in easy combing without snags, pulls and irritation to the cuticle. A cheaper solution is to buy a wide toothed comb, take out your nail-file, and post-process the comb yourself. Use the file between the tooth and around the top of each tooth to get off that sharp rand. Polish afterwards with the smoothest/fine side of the file. Though we don't promote specific sale locations, we have provided a list where to locate natural brushes and combs.

don't know, never heard of it.

It spreads the oils from your scalp along the hair shafts. This makes it look more shiney. It helps the circulation in your scalp. You also have the added benefit of removing anything that got into your hair during the day like lint before crawling into bed. Be certain you use a high quality natural bristle brush too!

probably take half the hair on your head out. Please dont tell me you do that. Well, I guess the upside is- your arms will get stronger.



What does brushing your hair 100 times before bed do?

Stimulates natural oils made by your scalp, gets rid of loose hairs, encourages your hair to grow, causes split ends and makes your arms tired.

We've all heard the recommendation: "If you want healthy hair, be sure to brush 100 strokes a day." But quite the opposite is true; the less you brush your hair, the better.



When the "100 strokes a day" method first materialized, people washed their hair with soap just once each month, or once every three weeks if they were wealthy and had a lot of time on their hands. Serious brushing was needed each day to remove dead skin from the scalp and to evenly distribute the scalp oils down the hair shaft. Without brushing so many strokes a day, this oil and debris would have built up on the scalp, leaving the hair looking dirty and unkempt. In addition, the ends would have become dry and brittle unless a substitute oil were applied. And, since scalp massage wasn't widely practiced, circulation to the scalp would have been diminished, seriously hampering healthy growth.



Fortunately, today we wash our hair much more frequently, and with slightly acidic shampoos that don't swell the hair shaft and cause cuticle damage.

Brushing your hair before bed is important because is rids all the dirt clung to your hair. But you do not need to brush it 100 times. I believe 25 is enough



What does brushing your hair 100 times before bed do?

Gently brushing your hair with a natural bristle brush will move the natural oils in your hair down the lengths and ends. This will help make your hair shiny and softer. It also stimulates your scalp to produce more oils and some say helps your hair grow. I don't buy that last one. Hair grows as fast as it grows.



Too much brushing or using a synthetic bristle brush can cause breakage and split ends. So can ripping a brush through tangled or even worse, wet hair.



You don't need 100 strokes a night. A gentle brushing will do the trick.



What does brushing your hair 100 times before bed do?

your hair is more shiny and silky.I used to do it , but your hair falls very much.But it is not bad for it.



What does brushing your hair 100 times before bed do?
