What is A Boar Bristle Hairbrush?

Do you know how to choose a boar bristle hairbrush? If not, maybe it is because you have not seen nor tried using one. You may not even know what hair type should this brush be used on. Here are some information on this and steps to know on how to choose the right one for you.

A hairbrush called a boar bristle is one that consists of densely packed bristles. This does not actually untangle your hair because it even makes knots if used on the wrong hair type. It may even worsen the tangles.

This brush is used for the purpose of removing dirt, oil, dust and other foreign particles that are found on your crown. It also polishes your hair to make it very shiny while doing so. Daily use of this on your hair makes it even more glossy making it healthy-looking and removes excess oil.

Boar bristle brushes do differ in shape and sizes. As for the size, you may go for small ones, medium ones and large ones depending on your hair type. You may also choose from different shapes as rounded, oval and rectangular ones.

Brushes may also have two kinds of bristles. They are the plastic ones and the natural ones. Boar bristles fall under the natural type as it radiates hair at its fullest shine. Plastic brush do not benefit hair as much as bristles brush. Here is a tip that you should remember when buying this kind of hairbrush. Never use it on a heavily tangled hair such as those with dread locks or kinky types because it will worsen the tangles instead of detangling it.
