We talk a lot of fashion around here, but you know what? No outfit is complete without a beautiful ‘do. After the handle on my last brush broke off mid-blow dry, I vowed from that day forth to always purchase quality brushes. So I did a ton of research… visited the “latest” and “greatest” brushes everywhere from Sephora to Nordstrom… however, the thing is, I don’t want to spend $40 on a brush. Right or wrong, I’d rather buy a cute top or a new lipstick.
Following many long weeks of hunting down honest reviews online, I realized I wanted to replace my entire set of brushes and add a couple more to my arsenal. I’ve been using these for weeks now and I loooove them – so of course, it’s time for me to share the hair brushes you need to have too!
Over the years, I’ve come to realize that yes, you can get by with just one brush… but you wouldn’t want to. After having a selection of brushes in my repertoire, I’m the first to confirm that the results you can get, simply by using different brushes customized for achieving different looks, are fabulous! Oh and the brushes in my collection are all under $10. Holy hair brush! This is the collection you need…
I’d never used a proper comb or brush after washing my hair (I know you’re supposed to) and when I found The Wet Brush I wanted to try it. I’m so happy I did, it’s the best and makes brushing your hair while wet so much easier! I also use it on my clip-in extensions as it’s soft and doesn’t pull the hair. It’s only $8.99.
Ahh the staple of the group, if you’ve never used a paddle brush, girl you’re missing out! I upgraded to this Ion Golden Wood Paddle Brush and it’s fabulous! I chose this as it has boar bristles for adding smoothness and shine, plus the ionic bristles help to condition hair. I also love that it’s all one piece of wood and you can instantly tell this brush is great quality. It’s just $9.99.
Want the ultimate blow dry? You need the ultimate brush of course! After the handle fell off my old round brush mid-blow dry, I vowed to always buy quality and get a fantastic new round brush – and after much searching, I found it! This Beautique Tahiti Wood Thermal Round Brush is brilliant. Featuring boar bristles for smooth and shiny hair, it’s thermal properties mean hair is quicker to dry. Priced at just $9.99… you can now have salon beautiful hair every day!
After deciding I needed a little va-va-voom and volume injection in my hair, I recently become re-acquainted with the teasing comb. The Amped Up Tease Brush is wonderful! Featuring boar bristles for smoothness and shine, it also has a special bristle pattern and texture to reduce damage, breakage and frizz. Oh and I love the sectioning tip at the end, it comes in very handy for styling and putting in extensions.
I’d love to know… have you tried any of these? What brushes do you have in your repertoire?
