What To Look For In A Round Brush For Hair Drying

Bristle Type 

Round brushes with boar bristles are densely packed and excellent for distributing your hair’s natural oils throughout your strands for lustre and shine. The bristles stimulate blood flow and can also give your scalp an enjoyable massage. Boar bristles are tough making them ideal for those with long and thick hair.

Boar bristles tend to be more expensive compared to nylon brushes. The [easyazon_link identifier=”B003LSEQPI” locale=”US” tag=”shophairdryers-20″]Spornette N.314 Deville[/easyazon_link] is an example of a round bristle brush.

Brushes with nylon brushes are excellent for fragile and damaged hair because they are gentle and won’t tug at strands. The [easyazon_link identifier=”B003O4HYWG” locale=”US” tag=”shophairdryers-20″]Spornette Double Stranded XL[/easyazon_link] is an example of a nylon round brush.
