What’s a tool that beauties of all ages, sizes, and shapes use on a daily basis? Among many, one of the most important ones is your hairbrush! Ask anyone, and you’ll find that choosing the right hairbrush can actually be quite the painstaking activity. You must find the right shape and size, make sure the handle feels good in your hair, and of course, make sure the bristles do what they’re supposed to do! Luckily, at Planet Beauty, the Buffs stock tons of brushes– you’re sure to find the brush of your dreams within the walls. Read on to discover some of the most popular brushes and what makes them so special.
If you have long hair, you‘ve probably heard two very different opinions on whether or not you should brush your hair to keep it healthy. One group says that in order to stay healthy, hair must be brushed a minimum of 100 strokes a day (Marcia Brady, anyone?). The other says that long hair should never be brushed, only combed, and only enough to keep it from tangling. So who’s right? Does brushing damage your hair, or does it stimulate growth? Well, it depends. Using the wrong kind of brush, brushing your hair without detangling it first, and brushing your hair when it’s wet can all lead to broken and damaged hair. Similarly, brushing hair that has been permed or colored can sometimes damage already fragile hair. And curly hair? That’s a whole other beast.
One amazing brush brand that’s been around for over one hundred years is Mason Pearson. What started out as handmade brushes turned into one of the most widely known hair brush brands internationally. The unique rubber-cushion pad, made by hand using Mason Pearson’s original techniques, allows for effective and efficient brushing. It is comfortable to use and massages the scalp to promote growth and spread essential oils to the rest of the hair. The cellulose plastic handle is hand-polished and any sharp edges are removed to make the hairbrush more comfortable to hold. With more than 20 styles to choose from, Mason Pearson has something for everyone. Whether you have thick hair and need the nylon bristle, fine hair and need the bristle brush, or are somewhere in between and need a mixture of both, Mason Pearson‘s rubber cushion brushes make brushing your hair a dream!
From hair care giant Moroccan Oil comes their line of styling products, including a paddle brush and round brushes in three different sizes. The Moroccan Oil Paddle Brush is constructed from high quality materials with ionic properties, ensuring a strong and durable brush that enhances the blow-drying experience. Ceramic retains and evenly distributes heat, while ions found within the brush bristles repel water, reducing the total drying time. This brush uses ionic technology to smooth the cuticle of each strand, resulting in shiny, healthy hair. Ceramic loses and gains heat less rapidly than metal so the temperature of the brush is more constant. The flat shape is perfect for creating straight, smooth styles while the Moroccan Oil Ceramic Ionic Round Brush is the ultimate accessory for healthy hair with tons of volume and bounce.
