Mistake #1: Not conditioning your hair properly. To properly brush your hair, distributing the natural oils, is to start from the bottom and work your way up you. You can flip your hair upside down to brush it just gently stroke your hair brush from the bottom working your way to the top to the crown of your head. Once you’re done just go back over your hair

Mistake #2: Not using the proper hair brush or comb in dry climates will lead to staticky hair. To avoid that static you should use a metal comb.

Mistake #3: Using the wrong hair brush on wet hair because it is in a very fragile state. It is best to use soft detangling brush or at the very least a wide toothed comb.

Mistake #4: Incorrect technique when brushing wet hair. You should start from the bottom and work your way up to get everything untangled. Then you can work from the top to the bottom just to make sure if you put any extra product in to really distribute the product in your hair evenly

Mistake #5: Over brushing your hair. Brushing your hair can be an enjoyable experience, but you need to give your hair a rest. Two to three times a day is the maximum number of times you should brush your hair.

Mistake #6: Not using a hair brush or hair comb to distribute product into your hair. Whenever you use a product like a deep conditioner you can go through with a wide tooth comb to really work in that product starting from the ends to the mids of my hair to really distribute that product evenly to get the maximum benefit from the product

Mistake #7: Not cleaning your hair brush. Bacteria can develop on your hairbrush which then transfers that bacteria to your hair.
