Let’s start with what will work best for those with long hair. The best product for keeping long hair well-maintained is definitely going to be a paddle brush. With a large surface area, this brush covers large sections of your hair at a time to give a uniform combing. Paddle brushes also spread your natural scalp oils evenly through your hair for that perfect sheen you seek.

When you have lovely locks that are tough to tame, the best brush for those curls is a Denman brush. Many people who have curly hair are told not to brush their curls, but when they really need to, this is the type of brush they’ll want to use. With soft bristles and a pillowy cushion, the curls respond with buoyance and detangle much easier than with a wire brush that will just frizz out the curls.

Do you prefer to brush your hair when it is fresh out of the shower? There’s a specific brush for that too, the vented brush. This brush allows for airflow and any excess water can escape out the brush rather than back into the hair. It also makes blow-drying move much quicker with such excellent airflow.

The boar bristle round brush is what the professionals say is best for frizzy hair. The excellent grip of the bristles offers a sleeker finish to the hair. These types of brushes work to calm even the toughest of frizz. It’s best to brush in small sections with this type of brush for the best results.

For frequent blow-driers, the ceramic round brush is what you will want for your hair brush. Not only will this brush help give curl, but it also increases the volume in your hair, particularly at the roots. And for those who rock bangs, a smaller barrel round brush is key to keeping them plump and voluminous. Find a two-in-one product with the Revlon One-step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush. This brush both, dries and brushes simultaneously.

And for those who have particularly difficult hair, a detangling brush is the best to get. With bristles that consist of different lengths, you won’t have to experience the pain of brushing through tough knots and tangles. Particularly good for kids who hate to get their hair brushed is the vibrant and detangling hair brushes from Crave Naturals and ArtNaturals. These brushes will calm the fear of hair brushing and make it a more pleasurable experience for both adult and child.

Make your hair styling experiences as good as they can get with these outstanding hair brushes. Find one that works for your hair type and add it to your accessories.

DYWM Fun Fact

Kent Brushes in Hertfordshire, England, was the first manufacturer of hair brushes in 1777. They were composed of wood and bristle, and it took 12 employees to make one brush. Not until 1885, when production of brushes increased rapidly, did the rubber-cushioned brush come on the market from Mason Pearson and revolutionized repeatedly until perfected in the 1920s. In 1898, synthetic bristles were implemented by Newman. Much later, in 1965, the invention of the round brush eliminated the need for hot rollers of the golden days.

The Hair Brush Buying Guide

  • Keep in mind that a higher price tag on a brush doesn’t necessarily equate to higher quality or better results.
  • Sometimes you will need two types of brushes to style your mane the way you want.
  • Even the best hair brushes might need a little help from detangler or leave-in conditioner, so don’t discard that new brush before you try to combine it with some other products.
