Best for: all hair types, depending on the bristle material*
What it does: Flat hair keeping you down? Bristles are ideal for adding body and bringing out your natural texture. But that’s not all! Because bristles are similar in structure to human hair, they’re highly effective at smoothing, adding shine, preventing breakage and stimulating the scalp to promote hair growth. Whoa.
How to use: Use on dry, detangled hair. Brush starting from your scalp to the ends of your hair (this will spread your natural oils down the hair shaft for major shine).

Boar: A great choice for any hair type (especially fine), boar bristles distribute your scalp’s natural oils through your locks, resulting in smooth and shiny hair.
Natural: Modeled after boar bristles, but made with other natural fibers. Great for all hair types.
Nylon: Also modeled after boar bristles, nylon bristles are a synthetic option best for thick hair and anyone looking to reduce static.
Mixed: Best for thick hair, mixed bristle brushes combine the oil-distributing effects of boar bristles with the scalp-stimulating power of nylon.
