    No need to email when we can aswer you here? One hundred strokes is an old custom. It was more commonly practiced back when hygiene habits were different and bathing was not as daily. Brushing was a means to remove dirt, much like is done to clean horse or dog coats. It was also meant to distribute scalp oil evenly through the hair to condition it. Today we have daily bathing, better shampoos and cetainly conditioners to do that.

    That's basically an old wive's tale. You don't need to brush your hair that much, in fact, that much brushing could hurt it. The reason behind it is to distribute the oil throughout the hair better. The hair's natural oil is a great conditioner, that's why shampooing everyday is not recommened for everybody. The natural oils need to be present for shiny health hair. Too much shampooing rids the hair of its oil. Just brush normally, and forget the 100 strokes rule.

    Brushing helps spread the natural oils through hair, making it look shinier and healthier. However, too much brushing can split and thin the hair. To keep hair soft and shiny, use a good conditioner. You can also use hair serum or pomade if you want your hair to look shiny and smooth.
