Don’t just go-a–head!
Many of you who read this column regularly know that now and then I have a rant.
Well, this week’s rant concerns you all. Would you wipe off your make-up with sandpaper? Would you a brush your teeth with a wire brush? Would you cut your nails with garden shears?
Er, no. So why do I find that so many of using plastic hairbrushes to style your hair with, and combing it through with what can only be as described flea combs?
They are too fine, and literally rip at your hair, pulling it from your head. I go to great lengths to advise my clients how they should brush and comb their hair, and I cannot stress enough that even tugging at short hair can – no, WILL – cause untold damage.
All the little fuzzy strands you can see the top or maybe the sides of your hair have been broken away by you being too harsh with your styling brushes and combing vigorously when wet.
Wet hair is so fragile that it really should not be touched in this state. Okay, we have to if we are cutting or blow-drying it.
But first, we always make sure that the hair is tangle-free before we put a comb through it by using a large paddle brush. These are flexible and will not cause breakage. So, too, should your styling brushes be ceramic-coated.
We do not have one plastic brush in our salon – and if you have one, then check it out because I bet it’s full of hair? Yes the hair you have ripped from your head.
Look at the pictures, which are examples of what you should be using. And when towel-drying your hair, simply “squeeze” it because rubbing it dry, even if short, will virtually “sand” the hair off your head.
You have been warned, but if you want to have less hair and look as though your split-ends have split-ends, then go-a-head and carry on as normal.
But don’t say I never told you so!
