Many years ago women thought that the recipe for beautiful hair was to brush it nightly 100 times. Today we know that this amount of brushing is not a good thing as it could damage the hair. Now we have advanced hair care products to suit every possible type of hair and solutions to every sort of hair problem imaginable. Modern hair brushes, which are probably somewhat different to your grannies hairbrush, are just one product amongst a host of products produced by the billions of dollars haircare industry.
Every city and town across the country has hairdressing salons and independent stylists. Among the thousands of products available both within salons and from the store are shampoos and cream rinses, numerous products for styling different types of hair, things to straighten curly hair and things to curl straight hair. Then there are all the various hair colors, from highlights to all over colors in every shade you can imagine, natural and not so natural. Although there have been made advances in haircare and the products developed, nobody has yet found a better way to tidy and style hair than the good old hairbrush or comb.
Some upmarket stores sell hairbrushes that are still made the old-fashioned way with natural bristles but as these brushes tend to be quite expensive, many opt for the brushes made from synthetic materials that are available everywhere. Different shapes and design of hair brush are made to suit different types of hair and styling requirements. A small regular brush that can easily be tucked into a handbag is fine for short hair in a wash and wear style, while high maintenance long hair that needs to be blow-dried needs a large circular brush to simplify drying. There are specialist brushes made to detangle Afro-Caribbean woolly curls and gentle, soft bristled brushes to brush fine and thin hair without scratching the scalp.
Whatever type of hair brush you choose is not going to be a cure all solution to your hair care problems but with the wealth of innovative hair care products available in the marketplace today you are sure to be able to solve any hair issues you have without much difficulty.
