If you have a problem with frizz, a boar bristle brush is ideal to smooth out the cuticle and prevent frizz.
Start with dry hair
Avoid boar bristle brushing wet hair, because this can cause breakage and doesn’t distribute the sebum well.
Detangle hair first
A boar bristle brush will not detangle and will actually create more tangles if you start with a tousled head of hair. Gently detangle your hair first using a wide-tooth comb.
Always brush from root to tip
With each stroke of the brush, start at the root of the hair and work all the way down to the tip. This distributes the sebum and creates shiny, bouncy locks.
Brush in sections
Unlike a regular hair brush, you need to approach boar bristle brushing with a careful plan of action. First, start by brushing the back of the hair by bending over, then stand up and brush the hairline, as shown in the video below.
