Tips for Finding a Great Hairbrush

You get up in the morning and hit the daily routine. Breakfast, bathing and dressing are all part of the game to get functional for the day. You want to look your best so you slip on a stunning outfit, put on some make-up and then start to brush your hair. Your hairbrush gets stuck in your hair for the 100th time and after you free it, you throw it away and vow to buy a new one before the sun sets. It is time for you to invest in a great hairbrush and here are some tips for what to look for to find your dream brush.

The Bristles

The different materials available for your bristle choice will affect the quality and price of your hairbrush. If you have a sensitive scalp, suffer from psoriasis flakes or have other conditions that require special care, you might want to go with natural bristles. Natural, or boar hair, is soft and tightly packed which is great for wavy, thick hair and helps distribute natural oil throughout your scalp and hair. Nylon bristles are less expensive than natural ones and are placed farther apart. If you have straight or fine hair, these would be a great choice. Synthetic or plastic bristles are the most common and least expensive on the market and are a good pick to start with when working on tangles. They are strong bristles that can be used on any hair type but you will need a better one for styling. Make sure to clean out the bristles regularly. It may look like you are pulling off enough hair for a wig every time you clear it off but keep up the maintenance to keep the brush effective. 

The Form

Hairbrushes come in all sorts of sizes. The length of your hair and the style you are going for will help determine the best type of brush. Curly or wavy hair would be best suited for a round one with a solid handle. Round brushes also make styling curls easier. Flat brushes are best for straighter hair. They can also be used when using a flat iron to keep the hair straight. If you have long hair, a larger brush is a good fit, and a smaller one works well for shorter hair. If you switch between curly and straight styles and want to have one great brush, try a smaller straight one that you can twist for the look you want. 

The Back

The back, or barrel, of your brush is not just an aesthetic feature but a function of strength. Titanium is easy to hold and light. Tourmaline barrels are made up of crushed gemstones and reduce flyaways and static electricity by releasing negative ions, plus they often have a glamorous look. Ceramic brushes are common and can be in many colors, as well as weights. It releases gentle heat into hair and can aid the smoothing process. Your great hairbrush will be a perfect combination of the bristle, shape and barrel that fits your hair type best. When you clear out the bristles of excess hair, you should also dunk the barrel of the brush in a little soapy water to clean it and the rest of the brush. 

When you are shopping for that new hairbrush, keep in mind these tips to find the perfect fit. If you have long, wavy hair, then you might consider a round, larger boar hair brush. If you have straight or short hair, then check out a flat brush with nylon or natural bristles. Whatever you choose, be sure to clean it on a regular basis to remove hair and small particles with your fingers and some soapy water. No matter how much you spend on it, taking proper care of it will help it last for many years and this hairbrush will become a favorite part of your morning routine.
