If you had told me that a brush would change my hair for the better, I’d probably laugh and walk away from you… But before you start scrolling, I’d like to let you in on the importance of scalp care. Most of us are so consumed with new trendy hair treatment, products and styles that we seems to skip out on caring for our scalp—sans hair products!

Brushing your hair daily (especially at night) can benefit not only your hair from the knots but it can relieve the scalp of tension and stress… Think of it as a sort of hair spa for your roots. And in order to maximise its effect, it’s necessary to know the type of brush for your hair!

1. Paddle Brush

Perfect for: thick, fuller hair

The bristles of a paddle brush are spaced out quite a bit, letting people tame their thick and coarse hair.

2. Ceramic Curler Brush

Perfect for: styling hair for volume

To get the most voluminous blow-dry, a ceramic barrel brush is great! It distributes the heat evenly and gives it a sleek and smooth feel.

3. Boar Bristle Brush

Perfect for: dry hair

These bristles are softer and can brush through dry hair perfectly. It’s also great to maintain your scalp’s PH balance.

4. Tangle-Free Brush

Perfect for: curly hair

Brushing out curls is a difficult job. But by using a detangler that bends through the hair is a great way of not tugging on your curls.

5. Exfoliating Scalp Brush

Perfect for: a dandruff-prone scalp

Your scalp needs some R&R too to increase hair growth and to keep it healthy. An exfoliating brush helps cleanse, exfoliate and stimulates the cells.
