You know the best styling products to use for your hair, and you know how to get the perfect haircut you want. But did you know that the kind of hair brush you’re using is just as important? Since no one has the same hair type, there’s not really a one-brush-fits-all option out there to give you the best possible style you’re looking for. Whether you have thick curly locks or thin, fine hair, you want your brush to work with your hair and not against it.
Actually, a crucial part of developing and maintaining an effective hair routine is how you care for and prepare the hair before you style it. The moment when your hair is still drying before you apply product can make the difference between a good hair day and a great one. And if you’re still in your quarantine hair experimentation phase, there’s no better time to invest in one of the best hair brushes.
“Lots of people have been growing out their hair because of the pandemic,” says Russell Maxwell, a Brooklyn-based barber. “A simple brush is key to detangling and providing volume, which just makes styling easier.” Beyond the ability to eliminate knots and snags, a good brush also stimulates the scalp and can remove any flakiness (aka dandruff) so your hair looks fresh and healthy, no matter the length.
“If you have long or thick hair, a brush is essential,” says Dillon Ross, a New York-based screen printer and grooming enthusiast. He currently sports shoulder-length locks that look impossibly smooth, and makes a case for only using a brush in place of a more elaborate routine. “I used to use products, now I just brush.” No matter what type of hair issues you face, a brush can make your life easier.
If you’re struggling with flat hair, a standard styling hair brush will give it more volume and support. For those with frizzy hair, a brush can easily eliminate frizziness while simultaneously stimulating the follicles on the scalp for improved growth. And if you’re in a rush, a vented hair brush will help your hair dry faster so you can save time. When it comes to brushes, the possibilities are endless. We’ve rounded up some of the best hair brushes on the market to meet a variety of needs, and to remind you just how low-manetenance grooming can be.
