Frequently Asked Questions
What should I look for when choosing a hair brush?
When choosing a hair brush, look for one that meets the needs of your hair type, like detangling, shine-boosting, or volume-enhancing. Brushes should be durable and easy to clean , so you don’t have to replace them often.
What are some of the most popular kinds of hair brushes, and how are they used when styling?
- Round brushes: typically used with a blow dryer to volumize and lift hair at the roots.
- Paddle brushes: ideal for smoothing through fine to medium, straight, or straightened hair with minimal snags.
- Detail brushes: typically used to smooth edges and shape baby hair.
- Detangling brushes: often made of flexible material that’s ideal for smoothing knots and tangles in and out of the shower.
What are some benefits of brushing your hair daily?
In addition to keeping tangles at bay, daily hair brushing evenly distributes oil from the scalp to the length of your hair for increased hydration and shine. The process is also a great way to keep your scalp healthy and your hair follicles stimulated.
