Just like with your bra, you've probably got the wrong hair brush. Yes, really.
Just like with your bra, you've probably got the wrong hair brush. Yes, really. Turns out, hairbrushes are not a one-size-fits-all kind of situation. You need a brush designed for the particular needs of your hair type, whether that's thin locks or big frizzy curls. We talked to Tommy Buckett, a Garnier hairstylist, for help finding the perfect brush for your unique strands:
The Issue: Limpness
The Solution: A round, metal-bristle brush, such as Creative Professionals Ceramic Ion Ultra Lightweight Hair Brush ($17 for 2-inch barrel, amazon.com), lifts strands by setting hair like a hot roller.
The Issue: Flyaways
The Solution: A round boar-and-nylon brush banishes fuzz—the nylon grabs hair while the boar smooths the cuticle. Try RickyCare TerraLyte Round Brush ($27 for 1.5-inch barrel, rickysnyc.com).
The Issue: Too. Much.
The Solution: A boar-bristle paddle brush, such as Wigo Boar Bristle Brush ($25, ulta.com), takes down bulk; the flat shape doesn't encourage root volume and helps de-puff lengths while polishing for shine.
