It’s all very well and good rushing out to buy the latest hair straightening brushes but we all have different hair types. So what works on your friend’s hair might be disastrous for you. What works for frizzy, curly hair will more than likely be too strong for very fine hair and even if a brush has variable heat settings – the bristles may not be suitable, possibly pulling and snagging.
Hair is very precious and it’s usually what shapes us, it needs to be treated with respect and care because once it’s damaged it takes a long time to restore it to its former glory. Bearing all of the above in mind, we set about finding out what straightening hairbrushes are best for each different hair type. We’ve done this so you don’t have to do your research!
The Hair Types
Firstly we’ve based our reviews on the different hair types but you need to know what they are.
Wavy hair – the type of hair that straightens out relatively easily and curls up beautifully too
Curly hair – medium thickness or fine but very curly
Kinky curls, ringlets and coils – usually thick, possibly coarse but definitely very curly and difficult to style!
The above should help you to pick out which your hair type is so you can work out what hair tool you need.
You’ve got plenty of thick, course hair which curls up instantly into corkscrews, ringlets and coils and perhaps you love your hair but want a change every now and then. You’ve tried flat irons and a blow dry seems to take an age to straighten your hair out. Well, we’ve found the ideal hair straightening brushes for you. You can also see our detailed review of the Dafni brush and the Apalus brush.
That’s our list completed! We hope you find the right styler for your hair type and we think now we’ve done all the hard work for you, you can style with confidence.
