We’re so lucky to be able to access information with just one simple click these days – it has made living with and learning to maintain curly hair so much easier than back in our parents’ heydays.
If you’re only just starting to embrace your naturally curly hair, you’ll know just how overwhelming it can be to get haircare and maintenance just right. There are so many things to consider, from which products to use, to which comb or brush to invest in.
Fortunately, the internet has all the knowledge and we can access it via fabulous beauty and hair blogs or videos from vloggers who obviously know what they are talking about – this is evident based on their beautifully shiny and perfectly styled curls.
Unfortunately, everyone seems to have a different opinion regarding all the most important tools and products needed for optimal curl maintenance. This can make it hard to filter through all this info and find what truly works best for you.
That’s what it’s all about after all – each hair and curl type is different. Hence, just because something works for an influencer who seems to have the same curl type as you, doesn’t necessarily mean they do.
The curl pattern might be the same, but the texture and coarseness or featheriness may be completely different from yours. Therefore, it’s important to do your research and experiment a little when it comes to investing in important tools such as brushes and combs.
Brushes are, perhaps, one of the most important tools needed for proper hair and curl care. Not only do they help to detangle stubborn knots, but they also help to distribute your hair’s natural oils, leaving it with a wonderfully healthy shine.
If you’re confused as to what brush might work best for your curly hair, not to worry. We’ve compiled a list that will help you make the perfect choice!
