Nothing is more important when styling and looking after your hair than picking the right tools for the job. Your choice in the humble hairbrush can really make a difference when it comes to perfecting and controlling your hair's look and style. The kind of brush you should pick depends on your hair type, or just call into your Galway hairdressers at Pazam for expert advice!
You can use either a paddle or round brush for straight hair, it's one of the easiest hairstyles to keep under control.
Stick with a small round brush for curly hair, getting the most out of your rolling locks.
A comb is fine for short or middle length wet hair but ideally you should use a widely spaced brush or one with flexible bristles for wet hair to avoid putting undue strain on your hair.
Middle Length or Fine Hair
Pick a round hairbrush for middling hair length to help you to take advantage of some of the shapes and forms which this length or fine hair type enables. This lets you curl, shape and mould your hair as you dry and style it, making it much easier to control.
Longer Hair Lengths
Try a paddle brush or a soft, wide tooth brush to avoid tugging at longer hair. You don't want to stress long hair either so it's ideal for brushing through tangled tresses!
You're probably best to stick with a vented brush for shorter hair lengths, since that will provide a way for your blow dryer to get right to the roots of your hair. This helps to dry your hair more quickly which is great when applying styling gel.
