Even if you get a great haircut at the salon, if you don’t style your hair well yourself, you will feel down for the rest of the day. To improve your styling, start by choosing the right brush for your hair type and length.
Three types of blow brushes
There are several types of blow brushes for different purposes of use.
Three of the most common types are skeleton brushes, Denman brushes, and roll brushes. A skilled hair stylist can freely style any hair type with any brush.
However, it is not so easy for amateurs. Choose an easy-to-use blow-dry brush that suits your hair type and purpose.
This brush is also known as a “Geiko” brush because of its rough, stubby teeth and skeleton-like shape. It is suitable for styling rough hair rather than tight, and can beautifully create natural waves.
If you want to create fluffy volume, especially at the top, blow-dry from the roots with a skeleton brush.
Denman’s brush (used for calligraphy)
Denman brushes were originally made by the British company Denman. Somewhere along the line, all similarly shaped brushes came to be called Denman brushes. It is made of soft material, so heat is easily transferred, and it is suitable for styling straight, unruly hair.
If the ends of your hair inevitably spread out, blow-dry your hair in a way that takes up a lot of hair to create a straight, calm style.
The roll brush looks like it would be easy to blow-dry, but in fact it requires the most technique.
On the other hand, however, it can be used on any type of hair, whether straight or habitual, and once you get used to using it, it becomes a strong ally. A skilled hair stylist can create all kinds of hairstyles with just one step of the roll brush. However, if an amateur tries to master its use, it will take some getting used to.
Great styling with the right brush
Some hair dryers are combined with a brush, but this is not recommended because the warm air is directly applied to the hair. This is not recommended, as the warm air blows directly onto the hair, causing more moisture to be blown out than necessary, which can easily damage the hair.
A good rule of thumb is to use a brush with a width of about 6 to 10 cm. If you prefer a rougher look, choose a skeleton, and if you have straight hair, choose a Denman. Roll brushes are difficult to master, but they can be a strong ally when you can move them around as you like.
