Have you ever noticed that a stylist has so many brushes and wonder how they know which one to use? Or have you ever thought that all brushes are the same and that it doesn’t matter what brush you use? I have been styling hair for over 27 years and have also worked in a Japanese beauty salon. I have traveled all around the world and have dealt with all types and textures of hair. There is a particular type of brush needed for each hair texture. Let’s explore what brush is needed for each style.
There are two types of hair, straight and curly, but in those hair types are several variations of texture. Straight hair when dried naturally, either gradually acquires a strong wavy appearance or is slightly frizzy and dull. For these two hair textures one would need to use a round boar bristle brush. When blow drying, be sure to dry section by section. With each section create tension and apply the right heat and the result will cause frizzy or slightly wavy hair to relax and will give it a shine. Straight hair can also be very fine which requires a thermal round brush. The thermal brush has a metal center. When the heat is applied on the brush and hair a shape is created. There are a small percentage of people in the world that have healthy, silky, shiny hair and no matter what one uses the hair will look beautiful.
The second hair type is curly. The different hair textures in this category are soft waves, strong waves, ringlet curls, frizzy curls, and kinky curls. As one who has curly hair, I know all the disastrous things people try. With curly hair it is necessary to have the right hair cut because if the hair is not cut properly it will look bushy and out of shape and to style the hair would be virtually impossible. Once the right hair cut has been given, then styling can begin by using a round boar bristle brush. As I mentioned earlier, between the tension on the hair section and applying the correct heat, the hair texture will begin to relax. To blow dry the hair properly will take time, but it is the healthiest way and gives the most beautiful result.
