Half-radial hair brush-are great for massaging your scalp.


A half-radial hair brush looks like a radial brush that's been cut down the center- in other words it's half a radial brush (curved bristles on one side and flat on the back).

The best thing about half-radial hair brushes is that they're perfect for someone with thick hair looking for a nice wave without too much volume.

Oval brush - for coarse, thick hair and extensions



Oval brushes are perfect if you happen to have very coarse, thick hair, as they are good at penetrating the hair deep down at the root without tugging at it too much. This gentle but effective groomer is also a good choice for curly styles and hair extensions.

Paddle brush - for quick-drying and straightening longer hair


Paddle brushes have large flat bases, making them best suited to longer hair, as they allow you to dry it straight and will hold a lot of hair at once
.

The bristles usually sit on an air cushion, which means they contour your head and provide a stimulating scalp massage while distributing the oil evenly from your roots.

Hair Brush Tips


  • Make sure that you have the correct hairbrush for the style that you are trying to achieve and for your hair type and texture. A baby-soft bristle is great for fine hair and coarse bristles are perfect for thicker hair. Ask your stylist for more advice.


  • Wash your hairbrushes regularly in warm water with a little shampoo and allow the bristles to dry naturally.


  • You don't need to buy the most expensive hairbrush- just make sure the bristles are soft enough (natural bristles are usually softer though, and more expensive).


  • Use a hairbrush with bristles long enough to reach your scalp. This way they will release your hair's natural oils.


  • Use a comb instead of a brush to detangle wet hair (some people even say don't comb it when it's too wet because your hair is weaker when it's wet).


  • Regardless of the quality of your hairbrush, you always need to use heat protection products on your hair before blow-drying.


  • Don't brush thick, frizzy hair- use a pick comb instead.
