  1. Thank you so much!! I never really figured out how to get the oil to spread down my hair using the BBBrush. Your video has helped so much! I have really thick hair and so it always been a hassle trying to get the oil spread but now I know how! Thank you so much!!!

  2. This is helpful to know! I had never even heard of it before. Strangely though, my scalp stays perfectly dry and healthy, but the underneath part of my hair and about half way down can get very oily. NO idea what that’s about; I’ll have to try this to see if it will help!

  3. I notice that if i do this on non wash days, it actually makes my hair oily. So i do it before i wash and it seems that my hair stays cleaner longer that way. My method of sectioning is a bit different, but it seems to work still! Thanks for the video :)

    1. Me too! If I scritch and preen before going to bed on nonwash days, my hair will be very oily the next morning. Maybe it’s got something to do with my fine hair? Anyways, think I will try doing it before washing and see if it makes a difference :-)

  4. Love the video! I’ve been preening with just my boar bristle brush – I’ll have to try and use my fingers first and then brush. I also do that thing where I brush over the ends of my hair last to get more oil on them :)
    Also, for the other curlies out there, I’ve found that it’s really nice to scritch and preen at night and then follow up with the brush for awhile to make sure all of the oils are distributed over your hair strands. Then when I wake up in the morning I spritz my hair just enough to let it air dry into its natural curls and waves or twist sections of my hair into the style I want. I don’t do this every time, but I don’t ever feel like I can’t brush my hair because of the curls this way. And I think my hair looks better and has more volume after it has freshly dried as opposed to sleeping on it anyway. Plus it doesn’t take too long to dry since it’s not soaking like after a shower, just damp. Just something to think about! :)

  5. I have never tried this, but I was due for a wask this morning so I tried it yesterday evening before going to bed. It felt nice, but it actually made my hair more oily? Like it was dripping in oil by the time I was done. I also lost a lot of hair in the process, did I do anything wrong?

  6. I had the same experience. I did the whole shebang last night and woke up with oilier hair towards my roots. However, i might give a whirl before a hair wash. The whole process was very relaxing though. :) I do also have fine hair…

  8. Thank you so much for this!! Although I still shampoo, doing this nightly has helped me put a few extra days between washes. I was wondering…is it possible to overdo this and cause damage? For example is it okay to scritch and preen with fingers then use a BBB every night or should I only use the BBB occasionally?
