Brushing Your Hair On The Go With a Portable Hairbrush is a Game Changer For Your Beauty Routine

2 Mins read


You’ve heard the old wives tale about brushing your hair “100 times a day” but how much truth is there to it? Does actively brushing your hair actually help to keep it healthy, strong, and frizz-free? We are here to tell you, yes! Brushing your hair multiple times in a day has proven benefits to the overall health of your hair and scalp. How often do you brush your hair in a day? Once, while you’re styling? Maybe you don’t even think about it enough to keep track. The benefits of brushing regularly are undeniable, and will completely change the way you go about your hair care routine. 

What Are The Benefits of Brushing Throughout The Day?

First of all, we all know that sleek, shiny, flowy hair is always in. Keeping a portable hairbrush in your bag is an easy way to have your locks smooth and tangle-free no matter where you are. But, do you know why your hair gets tangled in the first place? Frizz and tangles happen when the cuticle layer of your hair is dry or damaged. There are many things you can do to help this problem, but the easiest (and most cost-effective) way to tackle a dry, frizzy cuticle is by putting your own hair oil to work for you. The natural oil that you produce in your skin and scalp is called sebum, and it has all the moisturizing and smoothing properties you need to wrangle in those knots and tangles. Brushing your hair regularly distributes the sebum from the scalp, down through the hair shaft, to the dry and frizzy ends. Redistributing this sebum has other perks as well, it will help keep your scalp free of unwanted oil and shine, and reduce your need for a dryness relieving shampoo! Full-size brushes can be a pain to fit in your bag, a portable sized compact brush like the Macaron For Hair from Milk + Sass is a super cute, fun, and easy option to keep with you for on the go hair maintenance. 

But what other hair problems could a travel hairbrush help with?  Hair experts have revealed that stimulation to your scalp also promotes hair growth! Brushing the scalp brings more blood flow to your hair follicles, resulting in a more active hair follicle, and in turn, producing more length to your hair strands. That’s right, the secret to growing out healthy, shiny, tangle-free mermaid hair is right at your fingertips. All you have to do is brush it!
