This post is dedicated to all of us out there who just need to get back to basics + find that perfect [ hair brush ] fit.
Here’s to hoping you find your soulmate, or at least a little clarity into your basic hair needs………
Paddle Brush —
Long, Thick Hair
⋅ Sparse bristle spacing makes it easy to detangle + retain wavy textures.
Boar Bristle Brush —
⋅ Gentle on dry/brittle Strands
Pro Tip: Brush scalp to ends to distribute natural oils + use for DIY scalp massage.
Round Boar Bristle Brush —
⋅ Prevents oil buildup + redistributes oil so it does not settle on scalp.
⋅ Reduces frizz + can create volume.
Scalp Brush —
Prone + Product Buildup
⋅ Helps removes flakes/dead skin from your scalp as well as product buildup [ key to healthy hair + scalp].
Wet Brush —
Fine Hair [me]
⋅ Perfect for everyday use + gentle enough to get the fine knots out with ease
Detangler Comb —
⋅ Use when wet to avoid frizz [obvious for those of you with curly hair, but
general info for everyone else].
⋅ Helps retain curl pattern without disruption.
Vented Styling Brush
⋅ Blowing out + styling fine hair, pixie to bob length hair
hint: its easier to handle for at home blowouts vs a boar round brush
⋅ All hair types — Used to create lift [typically] at the root of hair
The name speaks for itself, but the key for a good teasing brush is for the bristles to be multilevel.
This teasing brush deserves a little introduction —
This was my VERY FIRST teasing brush. Tried and true. Perfect for an airy tease + smoothing over fly aways.
* Had to include it because it was my gateway into my texture + teasing obsession, many many years ago ❤ *
I hope you all enjoyed this little rundown on hair brushes! Will be back soon with more goodness for you to take in.
