What exactly is a detangling brush?
A detangling brush is a brush that has been specifically designed for hair that gets tangled or knotted easily. This can be common if you have long or very thick hair. Because although all brushes can, to a certain extent, be used to remove knots and tangles, a detangling brush will allow you to do this without tugging or pulling the hair, and therefore minimizing the damage. This brush is particularly good for detangling coarse hairs underneath your chin. This also helps to unclog your pores..if your hair follicles curl underneath your skin then you will be high candidate for razor bumps.

If your hair tends to shrink up at the mere thought of wet locks, you're likely to lose less hair during dry detangling. Though detangling with fingers is definitely a more gentle process, I've found brushing on dry hair to be very risky and even when I go extremely slowly, I lose more hair than I'm comfortable with. If you're also wary of dry detangling, I recommend spritzing each section with water, getting the hair hydrated before adding the balm or Super Damp Beard Serum.

Then I spritz the brush with a homemade sanitizer and let it dry naturally to disinfect between uses.
6. Brushing is a good thing — as long as you don't overdo it. I repeat Don't over do it!This could cause breakage…once or twice a day is good. Just use your fingers first and slowly run them through your hair.
