CDespite using the best hair care products, your hair may not look its best. If you feel that your hair is not reflecting all the time you spend on maintaining and styling it, chances are that you are overlooking a very important factor in your grooming; the hair brush. To help you find the right brush, here are the types of brushes available out there.
Round Hair Brush
The round hair brush is the ideal choice for adding volume and curl to your hair. Whereas volume can be added at the root level, the brush will add curl to your hair at both the middle and lower levels. However, a deciding factor for the curls is the size of the barrel. The smaller the barrel, the tighter the resulting curls. On the other hand, the bigger the brush, the straighter the results.
The Cushioned and Square Paddle Brush
The cushioned and square brush is what you need to meet your hair detangling needs. The brush’s cushioned based will ensure that all the tangles and knots in your hair will be taken care of without breakage or damage. The brush also massages the scalp, evens out the hair, and adds shine. However, this brush is large in size and will work most effectively on medium to long hair. This type of brush is usually made of nylon or boar bristles, which ensures that it does not stretch or break your hair. In fact, it will improve your blood circulation and distribute sebum (natural moisturizer produced the scalp) along the length of your hair.
The Cushioned Oblong Paddle Brush
This is truly a multipurpose brush. You can use the cushioned oblong paddle for smoothing, styling and adding shine to your hair. If you tend to get your hair done often, the brush is perfect since it can help you with styling your hair.
The teasing brush is a great tool for backcombing the hair, a technique that adds both height and volume to your hair. If you have fine hair and fewer tangles, you can also use a teasing brush to get straight, smooth tresses.
The Classic Stylish Brush
The classic stylish brush has rounded plastic bristles and a curved rubber base. Many stylists believe it to be a great choice for smoothing hair and adding volume and shine to your tresses. A good brush for everyday use in between styling and washes.
This brush has holes in its base, allowing the air to flow through it. This is an excellent brush for those with thick hair and little time since it can decrease the drying time by allowing the air and heat to travel through your hair.
Mix and match your brushes to meet your unique needs and watch your hair become healthier and more beautiful.
