Hair Brushes: The Best for Smooth and Knotless Hair

DuBoa Hair Brushes - made in JapanA Detangling Brush…A Brushing Hair Brush…A Knot Remover Brush. These hair brushes are all one-in-the-same, and if you take a quick poll around the i-glam office you’ll learn this is one hair brush you certainly shouldn’t be without for smooth and knotless hair. Here’s why…

A brushing hair brush, as we often like to call them at i-glamour, is a hair brush designed to do just that – brush hair. It has soft, smooth, nylon bristles in a multi-tuff formation. This means there are little bunches of bristles held together in small groups. This design enables the soft, flexible bristles to hold your hair (yes, even thick, coarse and curly hair types) so you can easily and gently move the brush downwards. Due to this unique bristle design this hair brush is able to…

  • Remove knots and tangles without pulling or dragging on your hair which can lead to spilt ends over time.
  • Helps break-up and remove styling product build-up (i.e. hairspray, mousse, texturisiers) which can make hair appear dull and lifeless.
  • Helps to spread sebum (your hair’s natural oil) down the hair shaft to reduce oiliness around the root area, and gives your hair a natural sheen.
  • Massages the scalp to help stimulate blood flow.
  • Helps to remove any flaky skin from around the scalp area.

Phew! Now that we’ve gotten through the “whys” lets now address the “whens”. When should I be using this hair brush? Well really it’s up to you, but our general advice would be…

  • Prior to wetting your hair for shampooing. It will make the whole process a little bit easier and more effective.
  • Before you head off to bed to remove knots and tangles and increase shine.
  • Before re-styling on 2nd, 3rd or 4th day hair to give your scalp a bit of a treat and remove any flakes of skin.
  • To brush out hairspray/stying products when re-styling hair.
  • To brush out curls after heat styling hair with a curling tong, hot rollers or self gripping rollers. This creates a softer curl.
  • Throughout the day to help minimise frizzies, fly-aways and tangles.

As you can see it’s a pretty handy little brush to have in your hair styling arsenal. These hair brushing brushes come in a vast array of sizes, colours and price points. So why not check out some of these darling detanglers for yourself? Two brands worth looking at are – DuBoa (made in Japan and is the original brushing brush which started the trend many years ago), and Taylor Madison by Brushworx with their Soft and Smooth range (highly recommended for any budget conscious brusher).

We hope this has helped clarify what a hair brushing brush is. And please let us know if you own a hair brush like this. Do you love it? Does it make your hair smooth and knotless? We’d love to hear your stories…
