2. Buy a Good Brush
For the love of good hair, don’t buy a bad brush! Be sure to buy a brush that contains bristles which are coated in heavy duty plastic and that contain plastic tips on the ends, or buy a mason brush, which contains boar bristles that nourish the hair. Depending on your hair type, you’ll need a different brush. For me, boar bristle brushes only tear my hair, since my hair is dry, thick and hard to manage. It is also coarse, so coarse bristles don’t work well for me. Instead, I use a simple paddle brush with plastic tipped bristles. This keeps my hair protected, while still allowing me to comb through it. If you have oily hair, the boar bristle brushes would work great for you. All hair professionals advise getting a good brush since it is one of the most effective ways to keep your hair healthy.
