As I have found over my years of brush use, all hairbrushes are not the created the same. Some are best for styling; others are ideal for creating smoothness or curvy waves. A lot of brushes are available for specific purposes. Once you find out what your needs are for your hair length, texture and style then you are on track. Check to see which type of brush your stylist uses. If you like it, buy it. This selection could change if you decide a short cut is more your style. This brush is flat, wide and is best for brushing out long hair and creating straight, smooth styles. It can also give you a mini scalp massage. Because of its shape and size this brush should not be used to brush layers. It will never add volume, which is what layers are for.
This brush acts like a flat iron, smoothing and straitening the hair when used with the heat of a blow dryer, thus leaving it with not bend or lift. Whichever brush you use, hold the hair taut with the brush to create tension. This stretches the hair so it can form the new shape. It also adds shine and polish to your look. In closing, be sure to look for brushes that have ball tips that are molded as part of the bristle. Ball tips that are glued or otherwise attached can pull hair and damage it. Good brushes are an investment; if they are good quality and well cared for, they should last for years and your hair will be much healthier because of the extra attention you have given to selecting the proper brushes.
Laser hair brushes can also correct the overabundance of a substance called DHT (dihydrotestosterone) triggered both by age and genetics that can begin to weaken hair on a follicular level, targeting the roots. Use of laser hair brushes is non-invasive and painless as they are designed to penetrate deep within the tissues without causing heat or damage. Some laser hair brushes I reviewed contained only LEDS (light emitting diodes), but if light-emitting diodes were as effective as therapeutic lasers, they would already have replaced lasers in the clinic due to their relatively low cost. The best quality laser brushes I have found contain 17 diode lasers, focused through clear conical shafts that are the "bristles" of the brush. Many less expensive types put a combination of lasers and LEDS that may look the same, but do not deliver the same results.
The Spornette mini styling tools have a rounded shape and are created with boar bristles for great hold. They come in two different sizes and are great for an overnight bag. These brushes work especially well with shorter hair because of their small size and firm hold. The Porcupine oval is a cushion brush with a flatter surface than the other rounded brushes. The cushion in this brush allows hair to easily flow over the bristles without creating snarls or tangling. This brush has a wooden handle and boar and nylon bristles which makes drying damp hair super easy. This brush is great for achieving a smooth silky finish and eliminating curls from hair. The ZHU brushes have a rounded shape which makes curling and flipping hair while blow drying very easy. The handles of this brush are made of bamboo and the bristles are tourmaline nylon. The barrel of the brush is made of ceramic so it heats up and helps lock in the style. After using this brush to dry hair, set the hair in pin curls and spray with hairspray to create big, voluminous curls.
