When I first discovered that my hair was naturally wavy and found the curly girl method, I was confused by hearing “Do not brush wavy hair!”. I had spent my whole life brushing my hair after getting out of the shower, and at the start of each day, at minimum.
I also grew up hearing things like “Your hair is a mess, it needs brushed!” So, I thought of brushing your hair as an essential part of taking care of your hair and keeping it from looking bad.
For those of you who are where I was a few years ago, I wanted to dive deeper into why you shouldn’t brush wavy hair. Hopefully, this will help you understand the benefits of not brushing wavy hair.
