When you have damaged, dry hair, you may feel like the best thing to do is nothing at all. Since that isn’t realistic and compromised hair requires upkeep and TLC, the next best course of action is to invest in a brush for damaged hair that will help your mane regain its natural luster and shine. Most importantly, the brush you choose shouldn’t create more tangles, split ends, or hair shedding.
There are many options out there when it comes to finding the ideal brush for damaged hair. If you blow dry your hair, opt for a ceramic barrel brush that transfers heat evenly to hair and prevents any one section from getting too hot and damaged. If you have fine, damaged hair, try a vent brush with rubber-tip bristles that can detangle hair without pulling on it too hard. Natural boar bristle brushes serve as the gold standard when it comes to brushes that distribute scalp oils throughout your hair to promote shine and naturally condition dry hair. And a classic paddle brush with nylon or rubber bristles is great for all hair types because it provides a gentle scalp massage and easy detangling and styling.
When you aren’t sure which steps to take next in addressing dry, tormented hair, try one of these eight brushes that will help prevent further damage to your delicate strands.
