One big thing to keep in mind when protecting your hair, is to be very gentle when you towel dry. In this video, I show you how to use a regular towel to gently towel dry your hair and keep from preventing breakage.
Something really interesting about our hair is that when wet, it naturally has more elasticity, thus why it seems to stretch. For those of you with curly hair will really get it, doesn't your hair always seem WAY longer when wet??
When we are too rough on our hair wet, that can cause damage, thus leading to breakage. So if you are a person that currently goes at your wet hair with a towel like a small animal is on your head, watch to see how I use a squeezing technique to get the water out!
Once your hair is towel dried, next is getting the tangles out!
Do you use a brush or a comb to get tangles out of your hair? Do you change it up between wet and dry? In this next video, I'm going to show you how to properly use both tools. Here's the key:
- NEVER use a brush on your hair wet. Always use a wide tooth comb or something built for wet hair such as the Tangle Teezer.
- Always start at the bottom of your hair and work your way up through the tangles rather than going in anywhere and having a huge tangled mess.
- Make sure you comb/brush your dry hair before going to sleep at night.
I hope you find this video helpful! This is an older video, but it has become my most viewed video! A lot of people are searching for tips on how to properly brush!
There you have it! The end of your shower routine. Next week we'll be going into products to use now that your hair is all combed out and ready to either air dry or blow dry.
With love and hair,
