There are loads of different types of hair brushes, each one intended for a different purpose or hair type. Unfortunately, most of the time the labels on hair brushes give little to no guidance for their intended usage. Find out if you're using the right hairbrush for your hair type!

If you have fine to normal hair a pure boar bristle brush is your best bet. The natural bristles distribute your hairs natural oils and eliminate any frizz or flyaways giving you a super polished and healthy coif.

Thick, coarse hair benefits from a nylon bristle brush which can penetrate the hair and give more control than a softer natural bristle brush.

You really can brush curly hair, as long as you do it with a wood bristle brush which is gentle and non-static forming.

So what if you're like me and have hair that is medium, coarse, wavy and breaks easily??

This mixed bristle brush does it all!
