All you need to know about Hair Brushes
Which types of hair brush are bad for your hair?
Choosing the right type of hair brush is important. The wrong brush can actually pull healthy hair out and cause snagging, which in turn can cause breakage and split ends. Avoid brushes made from nylon and plastic, as these can also cause static electricity on fine hair. Finally, ceramic and metal-core brushes may make blow-drying much quicker, but can damage the hair more.
Which type of hair brush should I use?
The answer to this question depends on the type of style you are creating. If you want volume and body, you'll need a round barrelled brush that you can use while blow-drying your hair. Smaller barrel brushes create curls that are tighter, while large barrels create waves. Paddle brushes are great for straight or sleek styles, and smaller styling brushes and combs are ideal for gathering hair into updos and other styles.
How do I clean my hairbrush?
Run a sink of warm soapy water, using gentle shampoo. Hold the handle and swirl the hairbrush around in the water. Then drizzle some shampoo (neat) on the brush and use a toothbrush to gently massage the hair bristles. Rinse the bristles under the tap, and then rinse them again in a sink of clean water. If soap still appears, keep rinsing until the bristles are completely clean.
How do I stop my hair from becoming frizzy when brushing?
The best way to avoid frizz is to only brush your hair when it is damp, following washing. Use a wide-toothed comb or a brush that is specially designed for tangles, and slowly work your way through the lower lengths of your hair. It can also help to towel dry your hair more gently (don't rub it aggressively), and use satin or silk bed sheets rather than cotton.
