Tip of the Day: 23.12.2014

Maybe your granny was right after all. Our hairdresser friend Philip B is a big fan of brushing hair 100 times a night. ‘Attached to every hair follicle is a sebaceous (oil) gland which produces sebum – a natural lubricant for your hair, and as good for hair as nutritious food is for our health. Brushing removes the fatty moisture, clearing the scalp and feeding the hair with each proper stroke of the brush, resupplying the hair shaft with its needed moisture. Brushing also removes dead skin and debris from the scalp, helping to clear the follicle for proper growth, as it stimulates circulation. Done with a gentle constant rhythm, the brushing also relieves stress.
