Using a brush with synthetic teeth
Both the thickness of the brush teeth and the material from which they are designed matter when we talk about the “quality” of brushing hair. Brushes made of natural materials attack the hair less than those made of synthetic materials because they do not remove the natural oil from the hair.

Brushing hair should be done carefully
It sounds trivial and difficult when you are in a hurry, but it is important to focus even in this process.

Only after drying the hair can you use a tool to handle teeth more often.
