So when do we brush and when do we comb? Do we even know the difference?
So a comb generally looks like this…
We should be using one of these when our hair is wet or males generally use them in place of a brush. Start from the ends of your hair and work your way up to the roots, gradually removing the knots and tangles. Alternatively, you can use a wet brush or tangle teaser and the same concept applies; just start from the ends and work your way up to the root. Just make sure you are thorough when combing.
This is done when the hair is dry, whether it’s when you get up or any time during the day. Brushes come in various forms but longer hair needs a paddle brush while thinner, shorter hair generally needs a vent brush. We use our brushes during blow-drying and styling so they can be round or flat, depending on the style you want and they can be any size.
Brushes come in all kinds of shapes. If you are ever confused about which brush is right for you, here’s a little guide;
• Looped bristle brushes are perfect for extensions or weaves.
• Paddle brushes are great for long hair, frizzy hair.
• Teasing brushes are great for fine or limp hair to add body and height.
• Round brushes are great for using during styling and drying to create body, curl and height.
• Brushes with lots of softer bristles are for using on sleeker hair.
• Vent brushes are good for finer hair to help blow-dry.
