PEX & YAY Brushing Curly Hair in the Shower: Tips and Techniques

How do you Brush Curly Hair in the Shower?

Brushing curly hair can be a tricky task, as it is prone to tangling and frizzing. One solution to this problem is to brush your hair while it's still wet, and in the shower. This can make the process much easier and less damaging to your hair. In this post, we'll go over the steps you should take to brush your curly hair in the shower.

Wet your hair thoroughly.
Before you start brushing, make sure your hair is completely wet. This will help to detangle any knots and make it easier to brush through. If you have thick or very curly hair, you may want to use a leave-in conditioner or detangler before getting in the shower.
Use a wide-toothed comb or a specialist detangling brush for curly hair. 
A wide-toothed comb is the best tool for brushing curly hair in the shower. It will help to gently detangle your hair without causing any damage. Start by combing through the bottom layers of your hair, working your way up to the roots. Be sure to hold the hair near the roots to prevent pulling.
Section your hair.
To make the process easier, divide your hair into sections. This will allow you to focus on one section at a time, making it easier to detangle. Use hair clips or hair ties to keep the sections separate.
Use a downward motion.
When brushing your hair, use a downward motion. This will help to keep the curls defined and prevent frizz. Be sure to start at the ends of your hair and work your way up.
Use a gentle touch.
Curly hair is more delicate than straight hair, so it's important to use a gentle touch when brushing. If you feel resistance, stop and gently work through the tangles before continuing.
Apply a curl-defining product
After you finished brushing, Apply a curl-defining product on your hair like a curl cream or gel. This will help to enhance your curls and define them, making them look bouncier and more defined.
Rinse and scrunch
Once you've applied the product, rinse your hair with cool water. Gently scrunch your curls to help them retain their shape. Then gently pat your hair dry with a microfiber towel.
By following these steps, you should be able to brush your curly hair in the shower without causing any damage. This can help to keep your curls looking healthy and defined, and make styling easier. Remember to be gentle, use a wide-toothed comb, and take your time.
Be aware that not all curly hair is the same, some may prefer different methods. It's important to pay attention to your hair and see what works best for you.
Also, note that not everyday brushing is recommended, try to avoid brushing your curls too often as it can lead to breakage and damage. And once your hair is dry, be sure to avoid combing or brushing your hair, as it can cause frizz and disrupt your curls.
