The right comb is the key to healthy and well-groomed hair. In this article, we will explain how to choose the right comb for your hair type. Maybe you need a 360 wave brush? Choose the best.
A good comb is designed not only to detangle and smooth strands, it is also a scalp massager. Correct stimulation promotes healthy hair growth, improper stimulation can even cause mechanical damage.
How to choose a comb for your hair type
For thick, thick and very voluminous curly hair, combs with teeth of different lengths are suitable.
For thin and even thinner hair, it is better to use soft bristles. Plastic and metal combs should be avoided.
For oily hair at the roots, combs made of natural wood are well suited.
For wavy hair and bouncy curls, sparse-toothed combs are ideal to keep the curls in shape, or soft-bristled massage combs.
Editor’s tip: Hair of all types will appreciate extra care. Before brushing, we recommend using leave-in hair care products for extra moisture. An excellent option is the Beauty and Power spray of the Chistaya Liniya brand. Thanks to the herbal decoction included in the product, the product provides a natural shine along the entire length and an antistatic effect.
Types of hair combs
