Home Hair Tips Grooming The Rumors Aren’t True, Curly Girls Can Brush Their Hair

It seems to be widely accepted that people with curly hair can’t or don’t brush their hair, but that is completely untrue! Is it an everyday occurrence? Probably not, because brushing daily can disturb curls’ natural pattern and even flatten them. However, a hairbrush can be an amazingly versatile tool that curly girls and guys should learn how to make the most of.

Massaging

Before showering, brush your hair to massage your scalp, in turn stimulating blood flow to your hair follicles. For this we recommend either our tipped metal brush or boar and nylon brush.

Detangling

Since all of the beautiful kinks and coils that make up curly hair can become intertwined and knotted, detangling is a must. We recommend using our tipped metal brush to gently brush through any tangles before applying our custom hair treatments, like our hair oil and pre-shampoo mask.

 

Styling

If you’re looking to achieve super defined curls, try using our tipped metal brush on damp hair, post-product application, to encourage uniform curls. So, after applying your curl cream, gently brush and shake small sections of your curls to activate curl clumping and definition.

Straightening

If you’re looking to switch up your look and straighten your curls, grab our boar and nylon bristle brush, set your blow dryer on medium heat and gently pull the brush through your damp hair to create a shiny, straight blowout.

Smoothing

If your goal is to tame flyaways and create a sleek look, our boar or agave bristle brush will do the trick. As a bonus, they’ll also condition your strands by distributing your natural oils and adding shine to your strands. To really reduce those pesky flyaways, brush closely to your head and then smooth your hair into a ponytail or guide it into a clip or pin.
