Choosing a hairbrush may have not been something you actively thought about, but it’s actually among the most important tools in your beauty arsenal. You may invest a lot in your hair but keep breaking it with the wrong hairbrush. Having a great brush will save you a ton of money and effort you’d otherwise spend on expensive treatments and salon visits.
“Personally, I think a hairbrush is the most important tool to complement any hair tools, like hairdryers, or even when applying products to the hair,” hairstylist Paul Edmonds told Stylist. In order to get the best effect, you’ll have to invest a bit more money into a brush, because the cheap products simply can’t offer the proper quality.
Another important factor is how often you brush. You shouldn’t do it more than twice per day if you don’t want your hair to become damaged with split ends within weeks. Over-brushing can also damage your scalp and cause dandruff.
When choosing a hairbrush, make sure you’re picking the right kind for your hair type as that will also dictate the results you’re going to get.
