Combing one’s hair can definitely be an effective assistant while treating the problem of hair loss. Therefore, if you want to regrow hair and make it strong and healthy you should learn to comb it properly.
First, let’s speak of the choice of combs. Naturally, each family member should have a separate one for his or her own use. The comb-teeth should be blunt and smooth. If they are sharp you can scratch and hurt your scalp. Don’t use metal combs with thick teeth as they tear and break hair. Combs with blunt and smooth teeth a preferable also from a hygienic point of view as they can be cleaned easily.
You can also use a brush. The brush-bristle should be rigid enough but at the same time it should not hurt your skin. For the best result you can use two types of brushes: one with a quite rigid bristle to remove dirt and dandruff and stimulate your head-skin; the other with a rather soft bristle to make your hair even and lustrous.
Now let’s turn to the process itself. The most important thing here is to make blood freely flow and circulate in the scalp. It cleans hair bulbs, feeds and revitalizes them. For this purpose you should stand up with legs widely separated, knees slightly bended, the body a bit tilted to make your head lower the heart level. Comb your hair leading the comb or the brush from the scalp to the tips of your hair to clean the head-skin from dirt and dandruff and remove dead hair. Careful twitching will help to stimulate and relax the scalp. Long and thick hair should be patiently combed little by little, strand by strand.
Follow this simple tips if you want to strive against hair loss and regrow hair. It is not a quick fix, of course, but in course of time the result will be evident, for sure.
