One of the things that we love is how different everyone’s hair is. Some of us have bouncy curls, some have wavy, thick hair, and others of us have fine straight hair - and there’s plenty in between.
At our hair salon in Emsworth, we’re all for making the best of what nature gave us, and that means finding a style that suits your natural hair. You also need to think about how best to care for your hair depending on what type of locks you have.
Brushing is something that we all have to do, but how much do you think about the hairbrush you use? All brushes were certainly not created equal, and there are some great options out there tailored to specific hair types that can help you look and feel your best.
The Evening Standard recently explained what kind of hair brush you’ll want, depending on the type of hair you have. It also noted that, for many of us, we don’t realise just how important our best hair brush is to our daily routine until we lose or misplace it.
With that in mind, it’s worth knowing where to look to find a replacement if your favourite brush does go walkabout.
If you’re looking for a good all-round brush that will work well for most hair types, it’s hard to go wrong with a paddle brush, the newspaper explained. These are also good for getting knots out of thick or curly hair while it’s wet.
For anyone who suffers from frizzy hair, brushing often may not seem like the best option, but you need to get those tangles out somehow! According to the Evening Standard, there are specialist brushes out there that are designed to bring out the natural shine of your hair while minimising the frizz.
If you find that you regularly suffer from knots or tangles in your hair, then investing in a detangling brush will be well worth the money.
These tools have bristles that are designed to work out knots in both wet and dry hair, and there are lots of options on the market. You should avoid using them with a hairdryer though, as the intense heat from a dryer can melt the bristles.
For girls with curly hair, wide tooth combs are a godsend. They are great for styling your hair without any of the pulling you get when a finer brush or comb gets stuck in your locks.
If you spend time trying to add volume and bounce to your hair meanwhile, the newspaper suggested that a round brush should be the one to go for. These help you style your damp hair as you’re drying it, introducing a subtle curl.
An article for Stylecaster recently explored the best brushes to use with wet hair, meanwhile. The news provider explained that it’s important to choose a brush that’s designed for use with wet hair if you frequently brush your hair straight after you’ve washed it.
This is because wet hair brushes and combs are designed to minimise snapping and breaking hair when it’s wet and more fragile.
