Myth 2: Brushing Your Hair 100 Strokes Per Day Makes It Shine

This is a big exaggeration with a little truth behind it. Light brushing—a few strokes here and there—gives locks luster by distributing the scalp’s natural oils down the hair shaft. Excessive brushing, however, especially if you tug too much, can weaken strands, causing them to break. For gentle grooming, choose a brush with ball-tipped plastic bristles or long, widely spaced natural boar bristles, and use it only to detangle and style hair.

Avoid snags and tears: Never brush wet hair—it’s too fragile. On dry locks, start from the ends and work your way up.
