Instead of teasing your hair with a volume boost comb you can tease it with the brush. This makes the tease a little more airy and you can tease your hair not only closest to the scalp but in the lengths as well, without making it look tangled. To avoid flyaway short hairs, spray a little hair spray or gloss spray directly onto the brush and brush through your hair.
It is important to regularly remove any hairs from the brush. The best way to do this is with a wide tooth comb or another brush. Fill a bowl with warm water, add a small amount of shampoo and allow the brush to soak for a few minutes to dissolve dirt and grease. This will also make the brush smell good. If the brush is very dirty you can dissolve a little baking soda in a bowl of warm water and place the brush in it. The oxygen that is produced when the water is mixed with the baking soda helps remove the dirt.
