Which Brush Should You Use?
Finding a brush that leaves your locks tangle-free and soft and shiny can make all the difference to the look and feel of your hair. All too often, we just reach for the nearest brush and hope for the best. But, if you want your hair to look better in a heartbeat, finding the right brush to suit your hair type is a more cost-effective alternative to expensive treatments and miracle potions.
Check out our guide below or speak to our stylist to find out which brush is best for you.
Boar Bristles for Fine Hair
Boar bristles are incredibly gentle on the hair and they won’t snag or pull. This means that they work really well on fine hair that needs a little extra looking after. Boar bristle brushes can be expensive, but they are definitely worth the investment if your hair is fine or thinning. These types of brushes can be stiff to work with at first but submerge the bristles in hot water for 20 minutes before you use it for the first time to help them soften. Like a fine wine, boar bristle brushes get better with age.
Nylon Mixed with Boar Bristles for Curly Hair
Curly hair can suffer from frizz which synthetic bristles can help to eliminate to leave curly hair looking soft and shiny. Well defined curls can be achieved using a synthetic mix brush, and the boar bristles remain gentle enough to not pull the hair or create static. Start at the roots and work your way down, and the tension will help keep the dreaded frizz at bay all day long.
Nylon Bristles for Thick Hair
Nylon brushes are super versatile and can be used for a variety of hair types. But if your hair is on the thick side, a nylon brush will make easy work of tangles. A handy nylon brush is also great for brushing products through your hair, as the bristles will help to distribute it evenly.
Vented Brushes for Short Hair
Great for blow drying, vented brushes allow plenty of air to pass through the brush, and the wide bristles make light work of short hairstyles. If you have an easy style that needs a quick refresh, a vented brush will free up any tangles and make your hair soft and shiny again.
Metal Round Brush for Flat or Limp Hair
If your hair sticks to your face like a limpet, try adding some volume with a metal round brush. These can be used as you blow dry to add bounce, curl and volume. The metal bristles head up when the hot air is pointed at them, effectively transforming your brush into an instant curling iron. You may also have seen your stylist using one of these to straighten your hair, this is because they can add the volume and shape that even straight hair needs to look healthy and natural.
Denman Brushes – Best for everyone
Some brushes just work well on every hair type. The good, old-fashioned Denman works brilliantly on natural hair and is, therefore, a great choice when your hair is product free and freshly dried. The rubber base helps to minimize static, while the rounded bristles prevent tearing and breakage. This is the kind of brush that everyone should own.
