I began to research how to get rid of bad hair days once and for all, looking at long-term beauty hacks, tips and tricks that have worked for centuries and won’t hurt your wallet in the process!
It’s always frustrating when you’re spending a lot of money on ‘incredible’ products and they don’t live up to the hype. It’s not just a waste of money, it’s a waste of time – which is worth so much more.
Heated stylers, straighteners, chemical processes and hair products all dry your hair, stripping it of the natural oils that keep it strong, healthy and shiny. Your hair can quickly become brittle and damaged, needing even more products to style – it’s a vicious cycle!
Boar Bristle Hair Brushes
Boar hair brushes are the forgotten beauty staple of the 1800’s and Victorian era. In the 40’s, Screen Sirens like Rita Hayworth and Katherine Hepburn used these brushes to look after their soft waves and for good reason!
You can’t change your hair type, but using a 100% pure boar bristle brush can take away the need for costly treatments, conditioners and serums because they improve condition, texture and shine. Brushing twice daily with a boar bristle hair brush will give you stronger, smoother hair in a few weeks. You’ll also be able to go longer between washing and styling, saving you time and money.
Pure Boar Bristle Hair Brushes:
- Gently massage the scalp, increasing blood flow and stimulating hair follicles.
- Align and close the keratin outer layer of the hair, distributing natural oil evenly down the hair shaft as you brush.
- Make easy work of smoothing challenging hair, because they create more tension than other brushes.
- Give volume and bounce to fine hair if you brush with your head upside down.
- Remove dirt and dust so well that you won’t need to wash and style your hair as much, saving time and money.
- Are popular with eco-friendly shoppers. These brushes are often made with natural, biodegradable or recyclable materials.
- Can last a lifetime if looked after. The more expensive options with the wooden handles are built to last and easy to look after. To clean, use a fine-toothed comb to rid the brush of hair and then rub a tiny amount of shampoo on the bristles with some warm water, removing any stubborn debris with a toothbrush.
