Out of all the hairstyling tools the hairbrush is probably the least talked about and appreciated tool on this planet. What is the purpose and functions of the hairbrush? For one thing, the hairbrush removes loose hairs, but more importantly by brushing your hair you increase blood circulation to the scalp. Increased circulation to the scalp has been shown to promote hair growth.
Some commonly used brushes are the round, paddle and cushion boar bristle brush. The cushion boar brush is used to detangle and straighten unkempt hair. The round brush can be used in conjunction with a blow dryer to style hair and is used to curl hair at the ends. The paddle brush is also used to straighten hair and is usually used on hair textures that are hard to manage.
