Is it OK to only brush my hair with my fingers?
I stopped using a boar bristle brush a couple of months ago and have instead been combing through my hair and untangling any knots with just my fingers. I comb my scalp to stimulate it as I've heard this is good for hair growth.
I would like to know if there's any reason why this might not be the most healthy approach for my hair, as I know that boar bristles and wooden brushes are meant to disperse oils through your hair; would I still be getting this benefit by using my hands?
Ps Great podcast and blog, so glad I found it!
