You might have never put serious thought into buying the perfect brush for yourself. After all, it’s just a hair brush, right?
How is it different from that other brush? Does it really make a difference to my hair?
If you’re one of those who think the same way, then it’s time to stop and rethink. Hair brushes, as trivial as they might seem, can prove to be a game-changer for your hair. Each brush is designed differently, with the kind of shape it has or the kind of bristles it owns. And each brush is suited to a different kind of hair. Let’s look at these brushes for all hair types.
Straight and Thin Hair
Thin hair is prone to breakage, especially when wet. For such hair, it is important to find a brush that is not too harsh on your hair. It is also best to find a brush that doesn't leave the hair flat, but adds some bounce to make your hair look voluminous. The best hair brush to prevent breakage that you can look out for are:
A detangling brush is specially designed to smooth out dry or wet hair without causing breakage. It is made up of extremely soft and flexible bristles such that tangles are removed easily without much tugging or pulling of hair.
This kind of brush is great for smoothing out unmanageable hair by straightening out any bumps on them. It is great for styling as it gives a sleek finish to hair.
A round brush is best for getting a voluminous look. Additionally, it will make your hair look smooth and shiny. For long hair, this brush is especially great. The best round brush for fine hair blowout is the one with boar-bristles.
It is believed that oily hair must not be brushed often as the excess oils from the scalp will worsen the overall condition of hair. But the truth is, even oily hair requires regular brushing to maintain smoothness. The key is to invest in a hair brush that has uniform bristles to distribute the oils in the scalp evenly onto hair, smoothing them out at the same time. Some best brushes for oily hair are:
BOAR-BRISTLED/ FIBER HAIRBRUSH
You can opt for any hairbrush, round or normal, with boar-bristles or fibers to penetrate through the scalp and distribute the oil evenly through the entire length of hair. In the result, the roots will appear less greasy and you will be left with shiny smooth hair.
Paddle brush can work well for oily hair too. You just have to make sure that the bristles are uniform and soft. It not only gently distributes hair oils but will also detangle hair well. It is also great for styling the hair during a blow dry session leaving you with smooth straight hair.
Dry or damaged hair must always be provided with loads of condition and moisture, be it in the form of hair products or with the help of a suitable hair brush. Dry hair is extra brittle and can break easily, wet or not. It is best to look for a brush that is extra gentle with extremely soft bristles to treat your hair well. Also, it must be able to reach the scalp well, in order to increase circulation around hair follicles. Here are some brushes that suit well.
This is the best brush for damaged hair. Because of its ability to smoothen the tresses without breakage, it is a must for dry hair. It is gentle on hair and smooths out the hair well, even when wet. If you find this brush with natural bamboo bristles, then even better!
PADDLE BRUSH WITH EXTENDED BRISTLES
Because of its extended bristles, it provides easy detangling and reduces stress to hair and scalp during brushing or styling.
Thick hair can be difficult to manage and control. The strands tangle easily and thus require a brush to match up to their level. For such hair, you need a brush that offers more control and has flexible bristles. Look out for these brushes.
NYLON BRISTLED BRUSH
Nylon bristles are stiffer than normal and thus manage and control unruly thick hair well. Thick hair are full of tough knots and can be snapped at very easily. Hence the brush needs to have flexible bristles as well, for painless combing.
WIDE PADDLE BRUSH WITH EXTRA LONG BRISTLES
The wide brush will be able to run through maximum thick hair and the extra-long bristles will detangle and smoothen out thick hair without much effort. Make sure the bristles are firm and flexible.
Curly haired girls can understand the terror that comes with brushing their hair too often. It can lead to hair loss and a loss of natural curly shape of their pretty hair. To rescue yourself, find a brush that can not only detangle your tough knots smoothly but also maintain their shape well. Just remember to brush your wet tresses, after conditioning, with these hair brush types for curly hair
It is the best bet for curly hair as it is extremely gentle and runs according to your hair design, hence locking in their shape.
PADDLE BRUSH WITH WIDE SPACED BRISTLES
A brush will work as long as its bristles are spaced and designed properly. Such brushes make it easier to detangle hair while not ruining the shape at all.
