Avoid brushing your hair

February 29, 2012 -- Urban Salon Finder

The bristles of a brush can damage the scalp and tear the hair cuticles, especially if used on kinky curly hair, which is extremely fine and fragile.  Although, if done correctly, brushing can help stimulate hair growth by strengthening the follicles and spreading natural oils, such as sebum, throughout the hair; it is much safer to gently use a comb or your fingers to stimulate the scalp.  Since you won't be spreading oils with a brush, you can simply apply an oil treatment directly to the ends.  If you feel that you must brush, only use one with natural boar bristles and never brush wet hair.

Treat your hair to a seamless comb and reduce breakage

January 15, 2013 -- Urban Salon Finder

The average comb has a seam on both sides of each tooth.  These seams, if uneven or jagged, can snag, rip, split or tear your hair while combing.  Seamless combs, which are usually made from bone, 100% organic resin, wood, or hard rubber, glide through your hair gently and smoothly, reducing breakage and shedding.  Seamless combs are a healthier and safer choice for all types of hair, especially kinky curly.  Treat your hair to a seamless comb today--you'll be amazed by the results.
