Wondering whether you should be brushing your curls and koils or not? In short, the answer is yes. But there’s more to it than that. 


Many of us may have heard that brushing out our curls or kinky hair will cause breakage and frizz. While others have been told to brush their hair while they shower or straight after the shower, while the hair's still wet. But when is it best to brush those curls? And when is it best to avoid the brush? And what are the best tools for curly, koily and kinky hair?


These are all great questions when it comes to the maintenance of your curls and koils. In this article we’ll explore the ins and outs of brushing those curls, what’s the best tool for those curls and when you should and should not be brushing out your hair. Let’s get rolling!


How to Brush Curly, Kinky and Koily Hair

As a matter of fact, there is a way to brush your textured hair without it poofing out like a lion’s mane. You already know very well, that if you have curly hair, the measures you need to take to brush out those curls is nothing like those of your straight haired friends or colleagues. That being said, the best time to brush your hair is actually in the shower, or while your hair is still wet. 


We naturally have dryer hair due to our hair type. Brushing out our curls or koils when the hair is dry will cause excessive breakage, which will weaken your hair and cause frizz. It’s best to brush the hair in the shower after you apply conditioner to sections of your hair. But more about that in the next sections!


Before You Brush 

Before we jump ahead to brushing out those curls or koils, you’ll want to use an essential oil like coconut oil, jojoba oil, argan oil or a replenishing hair oil that includes all of the best essential oils for your natural curls or kinky hair. 


Apply a small amount to your hair and gently detangle your curls before getting in the shower. This way you can gently remove those bigger knots with your fingers, rather than tearing through the hair with a comb (which as you know leads to breakage and frizz!) 


After You Oil Your Hair

Once you’ve untangled the bigger knots with your fingers one section at a time, you’ll then want to reach for your detangling brush. An optimal detangling brush designed for curls, kinky hair and koils will gently work its way through your hair to further untangle those sections you missed with your fingers. 


The bristles on the brush will make it easier to brush at this point in your routine. The comb will come later. Incorporating these steps into your hair care routine will make a massive difference in your hair and your curls.
