How to Choose the Right Hairbrush?
Brushing your hair is one of the daily routines you shouldn't forget. In fact, brushing not only revives the shine and smoothness of your hair; it's essential to keep your hair healthy by stimulating scalp circulation and removing brittle hairs. When it comes to the shape, composition, bristle type, or even quality, we often struggle to make the right choice!
Here are some tips to help you find the suitable hairbrush.
Choose a High-Quality Brush
Beauty departments are filled with hairbrushes at prices suitable for all budgets. But while low prices may be tempting, it's worth taking a closer look at the product. A low-quality brush can significantly damage your hair, making it brittle or irritating the scalp.
Which Bristles to Choose for Your Hairbrush?
There are different types of hairbrushes, more or less suitable for your hair type. Boar bristle brushes, made of keratin like our hair, are very popular as they respect the nature of hair and add shine by smoothing the cuticles. You'll also find brushes with nylon bristles, rigid pins, or small plastic balls at the end of the pins, ensuring easy detangling.
Which Brush for Detangling Your Hair?
For detangling wet hair, prefer a brush with bristles or, if you have very thick or curly hair, a brush with large teeth. There are also combs specially designed for wet hair. Be careful, however, to use the comb and not the brush, as using the brush can risk breaking the hair. To detangle dry hair, opt for a brush with different-sized bristles for gentle detangling. Be cautious about the risk of static electricity.
Choose a Brush Adapted to Your Hair Type
Depending on your hair's nature, the brush will vary. For curly hair, we prefer a boar bristle brush, which is softer and causes less damage when detangling. For straight hair, choose a skeleton brush with spaced pins, which will add volume and prevent hair from growing too quickly. For thick hair, which is less prone to knots but often lacks discipline, it's better to use a large, flat brush, square or rectangular, with boar bristles. For fine and straight hair, use a brush with 100% boar bristles.
Choose a Brush Adapted to Your Hair Length
For long hair, choose a round brush, preferably with nylon bristles and a metal body. Don't hesitate to invest in an extra-large model to save time when detangling your hair. For short hair, choose medium or even small sizes.
For gentle brushing, we'll use a flat brush, and for a soft brush, a round brush that adds volume. The brush size should be adapted to your hair length: a wide brush for long hair (at least 5 cm) and a smaller one for short hair. A good brush will reduce the time spent on brushing. Meanwhile, the heating brush, very stylish at the moment, quickly straightens even thick, curly hair. Be careful not to burn your hair! These brushes should not be used daily.
