When I first started the no poo method I read about using a boar bristle brush and all the benefits but most of those reviews were littered with people pushing a specific brand so I wasn't sure if it was just advertising or the truth. I am one month into no poo and it's going well except the grease build up in my hair between baking soda washes is a little excessive. Would a boar bristle brush really help with this or is a regular brush just as good?
Oh yes, it's definitely worth buying one. It helps to spread the oils Don't expect the brush to turn oily hair in fluffy clean hair but it does help you stretch between washes I bought one, didn't think it was helping until I had to do a week without because I had forgotten it at my boyfriends tough week that was
So I kept on with the boar bristle brush and I see if makes a difference but i'm still a little frustrated by using it. My hair is thick and I feel like it's not getting to my scalp. I can't feel it against my scalp and I feel like it's not working. I have to sit there and do tiny section by tiny section of my long hair to make sure the brush is getting through and it takes a long time. Time I don't always have with a 4 year old in the house. Do they make different boar bristle brushes for different thicknesses of hair??
