The Use of Different Hair Brushes

All hairbrushes can detangle and style hair, distribute oils, massage your scalp and promote healthier hair growth. However, the use of different hairbrushes will yield different results. Therefore, it's important to choose the right brush for your hair type and for it's specific styling function to get the best results from your hairbrush.

Cushion Brush

A cushion brush has bristles on only one side, pushed into a cushioned fabric. It usually has an oval shaped head and is perfect for detangling medium length hair. The cushion brush is popular with men, because it distributes the oil in the hair well and makes for easy styling.

Round Brush

One of the favored brushes of styling professionals, the round brush is a versatile brush which has hard bristles around a cylindrical core. You can use this brush as you style; use it to lift hair up from the roots, resulting in fantastic volume and to create perfect waves by curling the hair around the barrel and blow drying. You can also use it to curl ends up or under. It is a must have for styling your hair.

Paddle Hair Brush

Often times the bristles of this brush are made from boar hair. This prevents your hair from getting frizzy. If you have long hair, it's wonderful for getting tangles out

Radial Brush

A radial brush has bristles that go around the entire brush. This achieves curls and volume when using a blow dryer, as the air streams through the vent holes.

Half-Radial Brush

A half-radial brush is a radial brush that's been cut in half. It's used to create a flip at the end of the hair.

Military Brush

These brushes have no handles, and are held in the palm of your hand. Mostly used in men's hairstyling, they aid in a slicked back hairstyle.

Sculpting Brushes
Just as its name implies, this brush is used to create volume and sculpt the hair (mainly to short hairstyles).
