We are all aware about the importance of brushing our mane to keep them healthy. Which hairbrush bristles are better: is it the natural or synthetic type?
As far as styling results are concerned, the same result is obtained from both type of bristles. Although, if hair health is considered, natural boar’s hair bristles are known as the best. This type of bristle won’t tear up the cuticle layer of the hair because it is very gentle yet durable.
Nylon bristles come in as second. They are more affordable than boar’s and are also strong and long- lasting. One caveat: this type of bristle is not that gentle thus, when brushing your hair, use less force.
If at all possible, stay away from metal bristles because they are hard on the hair.
