Everyone who has hair, brushes their hair, though you may never have given much thought to the kind of brush you use. Using the right Hair Brush for your hair and your styling needs can make a difference in your hair’s health and appearance.
The appropriate brush for someone with long, curly hair will be drastically different than the best brush for fine or thinning hair.
Some brushes, like the round or vented kind, are best for styling, while others work to detangle, and some may even remedy static and frizz. Here we’ll cover different types of brushes and what they can do for your hair.
Types of hairbrushes and combs

What is dry brushing?
If you are not sure what dry brushing your skin is, it is a daily body massage with a dry, stiff-bristled brush that is said to help get rid of flaky skin, increase circulation, detoxify, help digestion – and even improve the appearance of cellulite.

For so many of us, life was once spent in several other locations besides our residences: the office, the car, a neighborhood restaurant, a family or friend’s place. But the pandemic shut everything down, rendering us homebound. Suddenly, we were, quite literally and constantly, staring at our walls for months on end. And their blankness began to bug us.
So how to fill them? Art, sure—but art can be intimidating to pick out, and expensive. Mirrors, however, are a simple yet effective way to fill the void. “Mirrors are an accessible and foolproof way to fill in wall space without having to put too much creative energy behind it,” CB2’s product development lead, Andrea Erman, tells Vogue.
