Using the wrong styling tools can throw off your look all together and even seriously damage your hair. Are you using the right hair brush? How do you know which one is right for you? Let Jada Beauty guide you in the right direction.
The Do-It-All Paddle: This multitasking paddle brush is the ultimate in brushes. Use it to detangle, tease, and blow out your locks. The rounded bristles keep this brush from pulling your strands out. Bonus: it doesn't cause static and the bristles help massage your scalp. Who doesn't want that?!
The Mason Pearson All Boar Bristle Hair Brush is the Beyonce of hair brushes. But at $190, it is a major splurge. Denman makes a professional grade yet super affordable option (shown above). Check out their large paddle brush for $12.
The Volume and Curl Helper: When used with a blow dryer, a curling metal round brush acts as a curling iron, making it perfect for your blow out. The hollow core allows for better air flow, cutting down on drying time. We suggest Cricket Technique - they make several different sizes of metal round brushes, ranging from $8 - $20.
The Bang Booster: Let's face it: sometimes bangs have a mind of their own. Keep them in line with a Spornette Porcupine brush for just $13. The combo of boar and nylon bristles work together to distribute oils throughout the hair. Since oil tends to gravitate towards your bang and part, this brush might give you an extra day between washes. Try using this on your second day bangs with your favorite dry shampoo to keep your look fresh.
The Super Detangler: We are super intrigued by Michel Mercier's new detangling brush. With 428 bristles at different lengths, this brush detangles gently and massages your scalp. It comes in three different colors and it's light weight won't have your arms aching by the time you're through styling. At just under $20, this one is worth checking out.
The Helping Hand: Goody just debuted a new fast-drying paddle brush. The absorbent microfiber bristles remove 30% of water for faster styling, while the side vents allow maximum air flow when blow drying. Want to hit snooze just one more time in the morning? This time saving tool is the perfect brush for you.
