Ever wondered which hairbrush you’re supposed to be using? Or, if the brush you have on-hand is the best tool for achieving the hair of your dreams? No doubt about it, choosing the right hairbrush can be a little overwhelming if you don’t have any background info on the types of brushes out there and what they’re best used for.
To provide a bit of clarity, we want to decode the 3 different types of brushes and how each should be used. Check it out below!
If you need to work out a few knots before hitting the shower, reach for a detangling brush. This special type of brush typically fits in the palm of your hand and can be used to smooth wet or dry hair without causing breakage or scalp pain. Just be sure not to use the detangling brush when blow-drying your hair. The heat from the appliance can easily melt the brush’s bristles.
Barrel-like in shape, the round brush often features boar bristles, which are great for creating a straight, sleek look with plenty of volumes. In fact, you can concentrate the round brush at the root for incredible lift and body or pull it through the length of your hair to straighten curls and waves for a smooth, salon-ready appearance. Have super long hair? Look for a round brush that is three inches or more in diameter.
If you can choose only one brush, make it a paddle brush. Though the paddle brush won’t contribute to sky-high volume like the round brush, a wide paddle brush is the perfect multi-use tool for taming unruly hair of any length. Use it to blow dry your hair quicker by sectioning and running the dryer over the brush root to end. You can also use the paddle brush for detangling wet or dry hair.
