The best way to take care of your hair is to use targeted products. However, shampoos, conditioners and lotions cannot do their magic without the help of a proper brush. Indeed, you should choose professional brushes according to your hair type (thin, short, long, curly, frizzy, indomitable, straight or wavy). So let’s find out what features one needs to consider before buying a hair brush.
Beware of the bristles
First of all, you must pay close attention to the quality of the bristles; the first attribute that indicates whether a brush is professional or not. The bristles must be synthetic, so that when brushed the hair remains shiny but perfectly styled at the same time: synthetic bristles in fact “have more grip” on the hair than natural bristles. Better to avoid buying a brush with iron bristles, especially if the hair is damaged or too thin.
Regardless of the type, all brushes should be washed periodically so as to prevent residues of sebum and dust, or the accumulation of hair, which soil the hair, weighing it down and compromising its shine.
Why buy a round brush
If you have thin hair and want to give it more volume, the most suitable brush is the round one. Furthermore, this allows you to obtain a shiny and frizz-free effect, for a super professional result.
Using the round brush may not be easy at first, but after a little practice you will get a perfect result.
Why use a detangling brush
The detangling brush allows you to comb your hair much faster and without effort. It is important, however, to choose one with elastic and resistant bristles. Also, for easier handling, you should opt for a brush with a handleless design – this will make it easier to hold. The detangling brush can be used on any type of hair, and whether wet or dry.
Why use an antistatic flat brush
An antistatic flat brush should be used for at least 3 valid reasons. It has an ergonomic design; it is much lighter than the others; and, above all, it prevents the accumulation of static electricity, counteracting the frizz effect. This is the perfect type of brush if you want to tame your hair.
Thus, before buying a brush, it is essential to take into consideration the various features we have just discussed without ignoring the main attribute to consider: the type of hair to be combed.
