I have been so curious about brushing your hair when wet, I have been hearing so many people doing it now.  I grew up thinking it was terrible for your hair and I usually am totally against it because your hair is so much more elastic when wet. I have dry and damaged hair so the idea of damaging my hair more by brushing it when it’s wet was always out of the question.  I tried Number 4’s Hydrate Jet Set Holiday Gift Set which includes a wet/dry brush.  It contains mini version’s of the Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner, a mini Super Comb & Protect, a mini Fleurs de Temps Body Lotion and L’eau de Mare Brush (wet/dry brush).

I read that when you are 15 that will be the best head of hair in your life and after 30 your hair cycle starts to change.  Then it changes again after 40 then late 50’s.  It’s…
