Review: Scunci Back Combing Brush and Mini Round Brush
What are the benefits of hair brushing?
- Before hair brushes and combs, women used seashells, animal bones and jaggered stones to tame their mane.
- Shiny Hair. Hair brushing flattens the outer layer of your hair allowing your hair to look more reflective and shiny.
- Cleansing. Apparently hair brushing is equivalent to the effects of dry shampoos. Hair brushing will help remove dead skin cells, uric acid crystal deposits that may clog up the pores and follicles on your scalp.
- Stimulation. Hair brushing is known to assist blood circulation by stimulating blood capillaries on your scalp. This will help maintain the healthy state of your hair as nutrients and oxygen is transported through brushing.
- Untangle. Regular brushing will help with untangling tangled hair, however ensure to avoid brushing through tangled wet hair as wet hair is more prone to breakage than dry hair.
- Natural conditioner. Brushing will trigger the production of sebum from various glands, these sebum secretion can act as a natural conditioner making hair stronger and smoother.
|Mini Round Brush|
- As someone with short straight hair, I often neglect my hair and at times skip brushing altogether, mainly due to static from my cheap $2 brushes (I must sound really deprived, especially from my last post about using crappy disposable razors and now to awful hairbrushes). Again, these brushes are considered a "luxury" in my stash compared to my broken plastic comb and brushes.
- I adored the Mini Round Brush, it's the perfect size for my purse. I've been using it for general brushing and retouching, works fabulously either way. The little beads on the end of the bristles does an excellent job at massaging my scalp!
- The pointy end of the Back Combing Brush has been used to part my hair while it's damp. If I'm looking for a little bit of volume, this comb does a quick and effective job. Although the first time I tried it, I was a bit heavy handed and bent some bristles... so be gentle!
- No static. Neither brushes gave me any static sensation and both were gentle on my scalp.
