Want every day to be a good hair day? If you’re not brushing your hair with the right brush or comb for your hair type, you could be missing out and even causing more harm than good.
While most of us put far more thought into our arsenal of hair care products, choosing the right hairbrush deserves equal attention. Not every type of hairbrush is compatible with every hair type, and if you’ve ever gotten a brush stuck in your hair, either because your hair was too thick for it or the brush was too firm for your delicate hair, then you know just how damaging the effects can be. The options for choosing a hairbrush may seem endless and overwhelming, but selecting a hairbrush with the right shape, size, bristle type, and barrel material can make a huge difference in styling your hair and its health.
Consider this the ultimate guide to decoding the different types of hairbrushes to find the perfect one for your hair.
What is the Benefit of Choosing the Right Hairbrush?
Different hair types need different types of hairbrushes so that the hair looks and feels good. Improperly brushing and styling your hair with the wrong type of brush can do more damage than you may think, causing breakage, tangles, knots, and snarls, especially if you brush from the root down instead of the tip up.
Not all hairbrush types are created equally, leaving many people to question, “what hairbrush should I use?” Some work their magic to detangle, others add shine and then there are those that are better suited for styling the hair. When it comes to choosing amongst the various types of hairbrushes, choose one that compliments your hair type, length and texture and goals and fits in your hand comfortably.
