4 Types of Hairbrushes Every Woman Needs

by Anjelina Tongco

A woman’s beauty tool arsenal is never complete without a good hair brush or two. If you browse through the hair aisle of your favorite store frequently, you know just how many different types of hair brushes there are to choose from. What you may not know, though, is which ones are worth buying and why. Here are the four different types of hair brushes no woman should ever be without. 

  1. Thermal brush - a thermal brush makes morning styling and prep so much easier and quicker. A couple of quick passes at every section is all you need to get hair that looks like it’s been styled by a pro. Thermal brushes also allow you to style your hair and add volume to it without as much heat as, say, a hair dryer would use. We recommend the Olivia Garden ThermoActive Ionic Boar Combo Vented Round 3 Brush Bag Set. It contains three boar bristle thermal brushes in different sizes so you can achieve a variety of looks. 
  2. Boar Bristle Brush - a boar bristle brush can be expensive, but it’s definitely worth it if you want hair that’s healthy and beautiful. This type of hair brush doesn’t create as much friction when brushed against human hair which means less damage. 
  3. Wet Brush - a wet brush allows you to detangle and style your hair while it’s still wet without inflicting as much damage to it as you would if you were to use a regular hair brush. The bristles on this type of brush are usually made from plastic with rounded tips and are strategically placed far enough apart to prevent pulling and tugging. You can also use most wet brushes to give yourself a nice scalp massage. 
  4. Round Brush - whatever hair type you have, a round brush is definitely something that you’ll find useful for your morning styling sessions. Round brushes can be used to create soft curls or to simply add more volume to your hair. This type of brush is best used with a hair dryer.
