With so many different hair brushes to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one your hair needs. We’re here to help! Learn about a few of the most standard brushes and which ones will work for your tresses.
Round Brush- This handy brush is used mostly with heat styling but can also be used on dry hair to achieve a rounded or soft look. A round brush, when used on wet hair with a dryer, works to pull wave or kink out of hair’s texture, and will also help smooth the cuticle for a polished look. While the round brush will relax the texture of your hair, you can still create roller-like body by using the cool shot button on your dryer while hair is wrapped around the barrel of the brush.
Varying lengths in hair will also call for different diameters of the brush barrel. With all great beauty tools, practice makes perfect, and round brushing definitely takes a little practice! Try this Round Brush from Philip B.
Boar Bristle Brush – This brush is great for all hair types but especially those with finer, more delicate hair because the bristles pull smoothly to cause less damage and breakage. Boar bristles also work to distribute the scalp’s natural oils evenly through the hair to ends, resulting in healthy ends and less oily roots. They’re also great for smoothing and styling updos since the bristles are close together and soft enough to lay the hair down but not disrupt the style. Try this Boar Bristle Brush from Mason Pearson.
Wide Tooth Comb – You should absolutely have a great comb in your arsenal for detangling purposes. While the most natural instinct with a tangled patch of hair is to mercilessly attack it with any brush in arms reach, vow to take a little more time with your misunderstood mane. When using a wide tooth comb to detangle, start at the bottom of the tangle and working your way up. If you are trying to comb down through the tangle you won’t make much progress and will only push the knots down, causing more damage. So remember, bottoms up! We also recommend keeping one in the shower to help dispense conditioners appropriately to all your ends. Try this Wide Tooth Comb from Mason Pearson.

Blonde pigments enhance hair color as a refresher and aid in the prevention of color fading.

After the age of 23, squalane oil production naturally diminishes (so much for always feeling 22).

Since it hydrates hands, the balm has been known to extend the life of manicures. Plus, if you’re a constant hand washer, it’ll help heal cracked skin, with only natural ingredients.
Formulated with stem cells from the rare Swiss apple Uttwiler Spatlauber which, being particularly rich in phyto-nutrients, proteins and long-living cells, is known for its long life and excellent storability. The internal fluid of these plant cells contain components which contribute to the visible decrease of wrinkle depth and promote the self-renewal capacity of the skin.

and impart a light, refreshing scent. It’s the perfect scrub to create soft and supple skin and a sense of relaxation.
