You might not think brushing your hair is an important – or even necessary step in your hair care routine. With so many products out there, who cares, right? Wrong! The brush you use and how you use it can be a game changer in the health and appearance of your tresses. Keep reading to make sure you use the perfect hair brush for your hair type.
All hair types
Whether you have fine or thick hair, and whether you want a full or sleek look, all hair types can benefit from boar bristle brushes. According to French hair stylist, Christophe Robin, this is because boar bristles are similar to human hair, both in their structure and the keratin compound they contain.
Brushing your hair with this GranNaturals Boar Bristle Paddle Hair Brush helps to reduce frizz by spreading your natural hair oils evenly throughout hair strands. These bristles also prevent breakage, leaving you with healthy hair with a natural shine.
Fine hair types
If your hair is fine and/or you want smooth hair with little to no texture, go with a flat paddle brush in the medium-size rage. The best bristles for fine hair are ceramic nylon bristles.
This Nylon Paddle Hair Brush from Sephora is an affordable option for fine hair types. And it works best for blow dry styling.
Thick hair types
Having thick hair is both a blessing and a curse, and using a flat brush with a combination of boar and nylon bristles can work to smooth and tame hair for more manageable tresses.
This Boar Bristle Hair Brush has both pure boars bristles along with nylon pins to stimulate the scalp, detangle, and spread natural oils throughout hair. Use it to style your hair during a blow dry.
