The best combs and brushes to detangle natural hair
02 October 2018
When it’s time for a detangling session, fear and frustration are the common sentiments. There is so much that can go wrong – from ripping and breakage, to unwanted shedding and, of course, pain. But detangling doesn’t have to be a horrid experience if you use the correct hair tools. Here are the top brushes you need for damage-free detangling.
Created for messy and matted tangles. This gadget’s teeth are soft and bendy, so they can gently lift coils until they loosen without ripping. The small, handle-less oval brush is easy to grip and therefore makes for better control and reach of tangles, right from the roots to the tips.
As the tool that has never let us down, the classic detangling comb is still the most popular because of its excellent reputation as a versatile all-star for many different hair types. The teeth are far apart so they can separate the hair and knots for easy combing without breakage. An even better option is using wide tooth combs with a double row of teeth, for the same detangling power in half the time.
Boar bristle Detangling brush
The natural boar-hair bristles are soft and gentle, which is important for preventing ripping and pulling. The softness of the bristles makes this brush the perfect instrument for detangling once hair has dried after a wash. A bonus of the boar brush is that it’s naturally anti-static and anti-frizz, and leaves hair bouncy and movable without too much work.
Made to comb through even the most stubborn and tightly-tangled thick and curly hair. Just like a rake, the teeth are long and narrow for better grip and to gently untangle the coils deep from the roots. Use it on wet or dry hair – the wide spacing will ensure you don’t rip your mane out either way.
Thanks to these combs and brushes, your hair is saved from the risk of detangling damage. To make sure you’re using the right tool, try them all out for size and find the best fit for your curl type! Still confused? Ask your trusted stylist. They’ve seen every curl type (and every comb) under the sun, so they’ll know exactly which to recommend for your hair.
