FINE TO NORMAL HAIR: PURE BOAR BRISTLE BRUSH

Fine to normal hair is easy to maintain and style with boar bristle brushes because they are amazing for creating polished strands. They actually lift away dirt, dust and debris, while redistributing the scalp’s natural oils from root to tip.

THINNING, DELICATE, OR DAMAGED HAIR: SOFT BOAR BRISTLE BRUSH

Boar bristle brushes are great for those with delicate hair as well, but make sure you choose one with extra soft bristles. This type of brush will stimulate the scalp, increasing circulation to the hair that needs a little TLC.

nylon bristle brush

VERY THICK OR COARSE HAIR: NYLON BRISTLE BRUSH
