What is the best hair brush for fine hair?
Hi everyone!I am transitioning into Corporate America from the field of Education. As you may know, Corporate America is more rigid in terms of appearances and what is considered to be appropriate. Even the most liberal companies have unspoken standards that newbies (who wish to move up the ladder) must adhere to.That being said, I plan to wear weaves, wigs, and crochet braids that keep my natural hair out of sight until I build up rapport with higher-ups and the company in general. (Once I've made my way- the curlies will be freed; trust me!)I would love to wear buns and such in between the other stuff, but I need better brushes and smoothing tools. The one I was using caused my ends to be split in the most terrible manner- my stylist had to trim at least 1/4-1/3 an inch which is basically one month of growth and hard work. I cannot use the denmen as I believe it was partly responsible for some of the damage as well so which brush (or type of brush) would be ideal for my fine, dense, type 4 hair?
Hello vjackson93,Congratulations on the transition, I wish you the best!I asked my 4a fellow editor and friend Amanda and she said she doesn't use brushes when she buns. She does buns on wet hair so that it smooths easily with just your hands. You can also use an edge control product and a bit of gel (if you don't already) to help seal and hold the look. Then, when you go to bed or if you are at home while it is drying, wear a satin scarf wrapped securely around your head to keep it smooth and flat as it dries or if you wear the style continuously for more than a day, the scarf will help keep the style neat at night. If you need a brush to smooth last minute or on 2nd day styles, like before you rewrap your scarf at night, you could try dampening your hair and smoothing with your hands to reactivate the gel or your could use a soft boar bristle brush turned on its side so that the side of the bristles glide over your hair smoothing it (rather than the sharp ends of the bristles).some edge tamers: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlproducts/view/56...http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlproducts/view/96...http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlproducts/view/10...I really hope that helps!
