You probably brush your hair every day, but are you sure you are doing it the right way? Find out what mistakes you should avoid when brushing your hair and find which is the best hair brush for you with La Bonne Brosse.

Mistake 1: Using the wrong hair brush

Many people neglect the choice of their hair brush. And yet, it is a fundamental criterion to have beautiful hair. We are all different: so is our hair! So be careful to choose a hair brush adapted to your needs in order to get the best out of it.

Whether you have dry, fragile or greasy hair, you will find the right hair brush made in France for you in our shop. Do your hair diagnosis online to find out which is the best hair brush for you: the Universal Hair Care Brush, the Essential All Purpose Brush or the Essential Soft Hair Brush.

Mistake 2: Brushing your hair when it's wet

If you have straight hair, we recommend you not to brush your hair when it is wet. Wet hair is particularly fragile and vulnerable: you might damage it or break it. This is why you should always wait until your hair is damp or dry before detangling it with your detangling comb or boar bristle hair brush. This rule doesn’t apply to people who have curly or frizzy hair though — if it is your case, you should only detangle your hair when it is wet in order to protect your beautiful curls !

Mistake 3: Not cleaning your hair brush

One of the most common mistakes is not cleaning your hair brush. If your hair brush is dirty, so will be your hair! So remember to remove any residue that has accumulated in the pins after each use. And for a more thorough cleaning every now and then, wipe a damp cloth between each bristle of your brush to remove the dust inside.

Mistake 4: Brushing your hair the wrong way

To have beautiful hair, there are certain things you need to do. Making sure that you detangle your hair from the bottom to the top, and not the other way around, is one of them. If you start at the roots, you will concentrate knots at the ends and make your hair even more fragile. Not a good idea!

If your hair is fragile and prone to break easily, then we recommend the Essential Soft Hair Brush: a keratin-rich boar bristle hair brush that is as gentle as it is effective. Ideal for sensitive scalps and delicate hair.

Mistake 5: Roughing it up while brushing your hair

One thing is certain: you need to be gentle with your hair, especially when it’s tangled!
If you tend to have a lot of tangles, forget about roughing it up — it's the best way to damage your hair. Instead, opt for the Essential All Purpose Brush: a boar bristle and nylon hair brush specially designed to easily penetrate all types of hair, even the thickest. Use slow, gentle strokes and your hairbrush will do the rest.

Mistake 6: Not having the right daily routine

This is an essential step to care for your hair: brushing your hair should not be done any old way! To have beautiful hair, we recommend brushing it three times a day: once in the morning to detangle it, once during the day to give it a little boost and once in the evening to get rid of the impurities accumulated during the day. If you want your hair brushing to be effective, make sure each session lasts about 2 minutes. Try it out!
