Brush your hair 100 times a day? Yeah right. Just buy a good brush.

Remember the old overzealous beauty routine of brushing your hair 100 times a day? Well, it's a total myth and colossal waste of time. But don't let that stop you from investing in a good brush that stimulates the scalp and distributes the natural oils in hair. We just shelled out several pretty pennies for a Mason Pearson brush and we're brushing 2-3 times a day to help recover from our sun, sand, and surf adventure.

Real Simple says, "A few strokes here and there will make hair shine by distributing the natural oils from the scalp down the hair shafts and flattening the cuticles to make them reflect more light. More significant, light brushing removes impurities and stimulates blood flow to the scalp, which nourishes hair follicles and keeps them healthy."
