What separates good hair from great hair? A great hairbrush. Seriously, what a good brush can do for your hair and scalp – detangle and smooth out hair, massage your scalp and redistribute natural oils over each strand – no shampoo or hair mask can. But finding a brush that’s good for your hair type and preferred styling (or several brushes if you’re serious about your hair care routine) is no easy task. From boar-bristle brushes, paddle brushes, wide-tooth combs, round brushes, and more, there are countless models available on the market today.
That’s why we handpicked some of the best hair brushes out there for every hair type, texture, style and concern so your tresses remain healthy, shiny and tangle-free.
The Best Hair Brush
Does brushing make hair grow?
Brushing allows your natural oils and moisture to be pulled from the scalp and root to the ends of your hair. In this way, brushing creates shine and can prevent drying and breakage – you can choose a hair stimulating brush for this. BUT brushing does not make your hair grow, sorry!
How do I clean my hair brush?
There are so many options for cleaning brushes but the simplest is often the best. Get a light shampoo and after removing hair from the brush (you can use a comb to do this), simply soak the brush in shampoo and water. Rinse thoroughly. Some brushes may need extra drying time.
How often should I brush my hair?
This really depends on your hair type. We would recommend brushing your hair twice a day, but we would also tell you to keep an eye on the health of your hair. Trial and error will determine what is best for your particular hair type.
Is it bad to brush hair when it's wet?
Hair strands are often weaker when filled with water, so brushing hair when wet is not always the best idea. That said, if you are using a product which allows for major slippage (conditioner), detangling on wet hair can take the pain out of the process for curly girls. Get yourself a good styling brush for this.
