The Beauty Toolkit: Choosing The Right Hairbrush For Your Hair

A hairbrush is a hairbrush, isn’t it? As long as you’re using the best hair oils, shampoos, conditioners, and serums, it shouldn’t matter too much which brush you use. Wrong! If you’re experiencing hair loss, dullness, or lots of static, your brush could be to blame. Here’s some hair advice and which brush you should buy to up your hair game.

For shine: Balmain Paris Hair Couture Spa Brush, Net-A-Porter 

For those who are serious about shine, the Balmain Paris brush is a worthy investment. Made from a combination of nylon and boar bristles, this brush stimulates the scalp and glides through the most unmanageable hair with ease. This luxury high-end brush looks sleek and leaves hair feeling sleeker.

For exfoliation: AVEDA Pramasana™ Exfoliating Scalp Brush, John Lewis 

Often we can experience a build up of dead skin cells, shampoo and other particles near the scalp. This brush is fantastic for massaging and exfoliating that area. It also helps to increase circulation in the scalp area which, in turn, helps stimulate growth from the hair follicle.

For blowdrying: Beauty Works Boar And Bristle Blow Dry Brush, LookFantastic

A great brush for all hair types, we love the Boar And Bristle brush because it’s so versatile. You can switch between long and short hairstyles, extensions in or out and still stick to the same brush. The smooth ceramic barrel reduces drying time and prevents hair from becoming dried out from heat application. The boar bristles prevent any snagging and tangles too.

For straightening: The Straightening Comb, Corioliss 

If you’re still skeptical about electric straightening brushes and prefer your trusty ghds, we recommend investing in a straightening comb to get the most from your straighteners. This Corioliss comb keeps hair taught and detangles your locks ready for straightening, as well as reducing static and helping to section out hair better.

For detangling: Tangle Teezer, Boots 

Tame your unruly mane with the iconic Tangle Teezer. It’s been a best-selling hairbrush for so long for a good reason. Its Firmflex teeth run through hair without tugging on the strands, so no hair is lost in the brushing process. It’s suitable for use of wet and dry hair. It really helps to distribute oil through the hair and give it that extra sheen. Be warned: don’t use it with heat products as the teeth will melt (learned through experience!)

For short hair: Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Round Brush, LookFantastic 

Always opt for a small round brush if you have short hair. This Shu Uemura brush is perfect for blowdrying short hair. It’s really light, so doesn’t weigh you down when you’re juggling brush and hairdryer! The bristles are lovely and soft so aren’t harsh on hair, but still kick it into shape with frizz-free results.

For finishing: ghd Narrow Dressing Brush, John Lewis

Such a tiny brush, but perfect for finishing off your look. We like this brush for finishing off the front parts and flattening those stray hairs around the face and at the roots. It’s also perfect for backcombing to give your hair added volume where needed.
