How To Choose The Right Hair Brush For You!

choosing-the-right-hair-brushThe right hair brush can dramatically affect the condition of your hair. Be sure to be working with the correct brush to get that marvelous hair you’re striving for because gorgeous hair is just a brush away.

Detangle

Hair is structurally weaker when wet, so rough brushing can cause snags and tears. Gently loosen your tangles with a brush that has widely spaced bristles designed to detangle wet hair.

Curl

If you want soft curls without using a curling iron, use a round brush with a ventilated metal, thermal, or ionic barrel. These barrels efficiently trap and circulate heat when you blow dry, plus you’ll cut drying time in half using the ventilated design. The Bio Ionic Round Wave Brush is great for creating curled or wavy hairstyles and looks.

Smooth

A flat, boar bristled paddle brush is perfect for smoothing hair after a blow dry. A flat paddle has a larger surface area designed to reach larger sections of your hair. The Macadamia Paddle Brush with Boar bristles is a quality hair brush that is gentle on the scalp. This brush will create a naturally smooth straight finish.

Straighten

You can blow dry all hair lengths and textures straight with a round brush. Choose metal, synthetic or natural bristles depending on your hair texture and condition. The longer your hair is, the larger the brushes diameter should be.

Style Long

A mixed bristle brush is best for long hair. The natural boar bristles polish the hair while the synthesize nylon ones gently grab and hold sections of your hair. Look for a brush with an air cushion, which allows the brush to glide over painful knots that could potentially break long locks.

Volumize

Vented brushes work wonders for volume! The open design evenly circulates air throughout your strands when you blow dry, resulting in a light, and bouncy finish with tons of movements.

Tease

Use a narrow brush with rows of densely packed bristles to backcomb your hair and smooth out the top layers.

Remember… “a hair on the head is worth two on the brush”

Summer Hair – Protection and Styles

Summer is here and our hair can get quite uncooperative with us during this season. Humidity is the devil on our hairs’ shoulder telling it to do bad things. Aside from being uncooperative, our hair can take a major beating from the summer’s heat, chlorine and salt water. Make sure to properly care for and protect your hair while you find the styles that work best in the summer climate.

Always wear a thermal protector to protect hair from heat and UVA/UVB rays such as the Bio Ionic Thermal Active Nourishing Silk Leave In. Also, use a weekly moisturizing masque (CHI Nourish Intense Coarse Silk Masque) to hydrate your hair.

Following hair tips are what I recommend as the best and easiest ways to manage your natural hair type during the summer season, but keep in mind that the real magic that controls frizz and makes these hairstyles work, is the right hair products.

Natural, Beachy look
Use a spray like the TIGI Rockaholic Groupie Texturizing Spray Pomade for beach-like hair texture. Spray it on moist hair and allow it to air-dry for a piecey, wavy look.

Straight Hair
To wear your hair straight, use a lightweight serum like BioSilk Silk Therapy to control frizz. Apply the serum before blow-drying and then add a few drops after you style.

Chic ponytails
Rock a casual, low ponytail or a higher ponytail with a small section of hair wrapped over top of the hair tie. A loose side ponytail, on wavy hair is especially beachy.

Loose Curls
Humidity can bring down the fun of curls and heavy hair products can weigh curls down or cause build-up. To maintain springy, summertime curls, scrunch a lightweight product like the Curly Sexy Hair Curl Power Enhancer onto curls.
