While straighteners, curling irons and hair products tend to get the most attention when it comes to styling your hair, your hair brush is arguably one of the most important tools you own. Selecting the right brush for your specific hair type will help to ensure your locks look healthy, shiny and beautiful.

 

Fine Hair

When brushing fine hair, you want something that will add volume and reduce frizz. Consider using a cushion-based brush to detangle and straighten your tresses. The air cushion prevents static and bends with scalp to easily detangle hair strands, leaving your locks looking silky smooth.

Thick Hair

Finding a great brush for thick hair may seem impossible, but a paddle brush does the trick! When working with long, thick hair, your brush needs to handle large sections, so a paddle brush covers the most ground. Your best bet is to find a paddle brush with nylon bristles, which are stiffer and offer more control than boar bristles for a controlled and stylish look.

Curly Hair

Many curly heads opt out of brushing their hair, but finding the right tool will allow you to detangle and smooth those beautiful curls. Reach for a vented hair brush with wide bristles to comb through curls. Vented brushes are designed to speed drying by allowing the heated air to flow easily through the “vents” in the brush.

If you aren’t sure what your hair type is or you just want a brush that works through multiple lengths and styles, a brush with nylon and boar bristles is the answer! The long nylon pins will minimize snarls, while the boar bristles redistribute your scalp oil.
