The Right Brush For Healthy Hair

There are so many hairbrushes out there on the market. This can make it tricky to know which the best hairbrush is for you, your hair type and hairstyle. In this blog post we look at the three different hair types and recommend the right brush for healthy hair if you have these hair types.

Don’t forget, you can also ask your friendly hairdresser in Yaxley when you having your hair coloured, cut or styled. They will be able to recommend the right brush for your healthy hair, for you. However, this blog post will work as a rough guide to help you choose the right hairbrush.

The Right Brush for Healthy Thin Hair

If you have thin hair then we would recommend a boar bristle brush. The bristles of the brush will gently detangle your hair while massaging your scalp. This little scalp massage will help promote healthy hair from root to tip. A boar bristle brush will also reduce tugging which can damage your hair.

The Right Brush for Healthy Thick Hair

If you want healthy thick hair then the right hairbrush for you is a nylon paddle brush. This nylon paddle hairbrush will glide through tangles easily. A nylon paddle hairbrush also has widely spaced bristles. These widely spaced bristles will help tame dense hair faster making the morning bed head easier to manage.

The Right Brush for Healthy Curly hair

Very often we find that curly hair is drier. Due to this we would recommend that you opt for a hairbrush that has detangling nylon teeth, but also has boar bristles. The boar bristles in the brush will help distribute your natural hair oils throughout your hair to give your hair the extra moisture and oil it needs to look and feel healthy.

Pop into the salon for a chat with our experienced hairdressers and we can recommend the best hairbrush to give you fabulously healthy hair. We will also recommend the best brands and the best places to purchase your new hairbrush from.
