Many years ago women thought that the recipe for beautiful hair was to brush it nightly 100 times. Today we know that this amount of brushing is not a good thing as it could damage the hair. Now we have advanced hair care products to suit every possible type of hair and solutions to every sort of hair problem imaginable. Modern hair brushes, which are probably somewhat different to your grannies hairbrush, are just one product amongst a host of products produced by the billions of dollars haircare industry. Every city and town across the country has hairdressing salons and independent stylists. Among the thousands of products available both within salons and from the store are shampoos and cream rinses, numerous products for styling different types of hair, things to straighten curly hair and things to curl straight hair. Then there are all the various hair colors, from highlights to all over colors in every shade you can imagine, natural and not so natural. Although there have been made advances in haircare and the products developed, nobody has yet found a better way to tidy and style hair than the good old hairbrush or comb.
Boar bristle would be chosen for people who have fine to normal hair, a boar and nylon bristle combination would be suited for people with normal to thick, and a nylon bristle brush would be best suited to people with very thick hair and/or the type that is prone to tangle. The great thing about these brushes is that they have a unique rubber pad beneath the bristles that gives just the right amount of pressure when brushing. It doesnt allow the hair to be dragged and it aids a gentle massage to the scalp so that sebum is produced to provide a natural conditioning agent. When brushing the hair, the sebum is brushed from root to tip creating a natural conditioner that gives the hair strength, elasticity and shine.
Then there are people with medium long hair. In this instance, the paddle brush becomes ideal especially for straightening. This brush does an excellent job of smoothing the hair as it grows longer. Not all long hair is the same however and this poses a problem in knowing exactly which brush to use for the specific medium to long hair that is at hand. Those that have long and layered hair need a special paddle brush to disentangle the hair and massage the hair scalp. This is a good point to note because the scalp is very important. The best brush is one that takes note of the scalp because a healthy scalp automatically means healthy hair and the opposite is also true. The best brush which also takes account of the scalp is the one that has a rubber base. This is also called the half-round brush and it comes in handy for massaging the scalp therefore stimulating healthy hair growth. The right hair brush therefore takes into account that the scalp is important and also boosts the blood circulation inside the scalp.
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.
