I found this great guide for hair brushes in case you are like me and wondering when to use which brush!
1. The Denman Paddle Brush: Use to detangle, blow dry, massage your head, and tease hair. It doesn’t pull or scratch because of its perfectly rounded nylon pin-bristles, it doesn’t cause static, and is padded with an air cushion.
2. Ibiza Round Brushes: These are great round brushes for home use. They’re gentle enough to give in to a tangle, but strong enough to get tension for smoothing out waves. This brush is packed with the perfect amount of bristles.
3. Cricket Metal Round Brush: This brush acts as a curling iron when it heats up. Most people use this when they want a little bend on their ends without using a curling iron. It has a hollow core which allows air to flow through. This brush is not my particular favorite because they often scratch the scalp and if you don’t move fast enough, there can be too much heat between your blow dryer and the metal of the brush.
4. WarrenTricomi Metal Core Brush: This is like 2 and 3 mixed together. Since this brush has both boar bristles and nylon bristles you have more control over the hair than you do with a regular metal core brush. The boar hair bristles also help prevent excessive contact between the hair and the metal. This is a rather versatile round brush. It can be used to create smooth straight hair or hair with lots of body.
5. Spornette- “porcupine” G36: This is a great brush for bangs. It’s under $10 and is awesome.
6. The Mason Pearson: This is what’s considered by many to be the “Holy Grail” of brushes. While I love this brush, I can’t quite justify spending $150 every time I lose it. 7. The Denman Large Boar Bristle Brush: This is the cheaper version of the Mason Pearson brush! I use this a lot for updos and smoothing down fly aways. It’s also a great brush for soft teasing!
