Do you know that one of the key reasons for hair fall and breakage could be your hairbrush ? No matter how many different oils or hair masks you try, using the wrong hairbrush for your hair type can cause more damage than you think. Here’s how you can decide which hairbrush to use for your precious locks:
This all-rounder brush is best for straight hair . It helps to remove all the tangles with ease and provides a cushion, gathers hair and smoothes out easily. It is also good for thick hair , and when it comes to long hair , this brush makes the task easier with the extra surface on the brush.
Stay clear of using any other brush if you have curly hair , as it can alter the pattern of your curls and even cause breakage. Instead, you should use a wide-tooth comb; it would help to define the curls and is also perfect for wet hair to detangle.
This brush is all about backcombing and teasing your hair while styling. It helps add more height to hair , making it look voluminous. From crown puff to bun and hair at the nape of your neck, this brush can be used to give the illusion of having thicker, healthier hair .
Metal round brush
This salon-favourite brush is the perfect choice for giving your hair more bounce and volume. It can be used on straight hair for styling, as well. When used with a blow dryer, the barrel heats and acts like a curler or straightener. However, using this brush requires a lot of practice and expertise. If used incorrectly, it can tangle the hair very badly.
Looped bristle brush
This hairbrush features looped bristles which smoothly slide on the hair . It is used for hair extensions and wigs, as it doesn't pull and damage the tresses. Also, if you have a sensitive scalp, this tool is what you should go for, as it is really easy on the scalp.
