Brushing your hair with the wrong tool can lead to seriously messy results. That’s why Morgan says to carefully consider brush size, weight, and bristle density before picking one off the shelf. But first, you’ll want to establish a purpose for your brush: Is it for detangling, blow-drying, straightening, styling, or for in the shower? You’ll likely need a different brush for each step of your hair-care routine.
Once you’ve established your brush’s purpose, choose one that feels good in your hands. “A comfortable grip makes all the difference when it comes to preventing snagging and damage,” he says. In most cases, you’ll also want to look for bristles that are spread far apart. This allows for an easy glide to ensure you keep your natural texture.
Ahead, find the best brushes for curly hair textures, whether you’re looking for a classic blow-dry brush, a shower detangler, or anything in between.
