100 Strokes, How I Brush
When I brush , I don't just brush, or brush to detangle or brush to style, I really brush. I have bra strap length hair, previously thick, dry and curly, currently, smooth, shiny, healthy and curly
I start by detangling. Then I flip my hair upside down and I brush against my scalp the entire time, all over and over, then I flip upright again and watch the blood drain back into my body lol... Seriously...
I start by finger parting my hair below my bootom of my ear and I brush down to my neck, and up to my crown consciously moving sebum. Then I finger part mid-ear and do the same, brush down, then up. And then top of the ear, down then up. Then I section my hair starting off from the right cause I'm right handed. I brush holding the section up on both sides in small enough sections where I know my brush is moving oil along the hair strand. This takes the longest because it ends up being about 6-7 sections.
Finally, my crown is the oiliest, I focus on just the crown and in 2-3 sections I brush about 10 strokes each section, then brush to a low ponytail with a cloth covered scrunchie for sleeping.
I'm a curly but can only wear my hair curly for about 4 days before I need to brush like this.
So like my grandma used to say... Every night brush a hundred strokes
