The keys to a quality brushing pass above all by a tool well adapted to its type of hair. Straight or curly, oily or dry: each hair has its own routine. Discover your ideal brush with this guide.
More than a simple reflex, hair brushing is the beauty gesture that will sublimate and reveal the radiance of your hair. If the promise makes you want to, however, you have to know how to choose your brush carefully, but also know how to use it correctly. From the type of bristles used on the head of your brush to the right movement to make from the scalp: we help you see more clearly in your quest.
Which brush to choose for fine to normal with a low to medium density?
If there is a golden rule with this type of hair, it is to brush on dry hair only. Indeed, once wet, straight hair is waterlogged and weakened and can break easily.
If you can't help detangling your hair when you get out of the shower, rub it well with a towel and opt for the detangling brushes from the Beauty range. The softness of the nylon fibers used and their technique of entanglement allow a softer and more precise detangling than a comb, which will avoid breaking them as much as possible.
If you belong to the fine to normal, straight or rather low density hair category, you are certainly complaining about your lack of volume. To overcome this problem, a brush will be your lifelong ally: the one made of boar bristles. It doesn't matter whether your heart falls for the luxurious Altesse Prestige model or for an elegant care & shine brush from the Beauty range: the quality of the natural fibers will have the effect of bringing substance to your hair while making it shinier.
Which brush to choose for thick or dense hair?
More resistant, thick or dense hair requires a suitable care or detangling brush.
The brushes of the Nature range are hybrid, mixing the benefits of boar bristle with those of nylon. This type of mixed brush allows you to brush the hair deeply – while sublimating the fiber. All-in-one tool, the option is unanimous and will make your brushing routine a real moment of pleasure.
It is also possible to opt for a care brush from the Beauty or Prestige collection in boar bristles. Indeed, at Altesse Studio, we have succeeded in developing a technique of enpoilage allowing to have brushes in 100% boar even for thick hair so that they regain shine and beauty over styling.
As for detangling brushes from the Beauty Collection, they provide magical detangling of the lengths, painlessly and without breakage, and are also available for thick or dense hair.
Which brush to choose for curly and wavy hair?
Curly and wavy hair is generally synonymous with texture and volume. Exception to the rule, this type of hair can benefit from brushing on damp hair, brushing on dry hair tends to make the hair more dense by breaking up the pre-existing curls.
So, if your hair is curly or wavy, opt for a nylon fiber detangling brush, or failing that, a wide-toothed comb – which are two tools that respect thick and tight natures. The flexible fibers of the Altesse Beauté detangling brush for curly hair have a double action, both precisely detangling the hair mass without breaking the fiber, but also allowing an ultra-precise distribution of care.
Which brush to choose for brushing greasy hair?
Above all, the boar bristle brush will be your best ally, like our Beauty or Prestige model. By starting to brush from the base of the scalp to the lengths, the tool will evenly distribute excess sebum — for naturally nourished and shiny hair. Another advantage: the gesture correctly and regularly carried out – ideally two per day – will provide softness and suppleness to the hair fibers.
Now that you have been able to lift the veil on all the mysteries of a dream mane — but above all find the tool that will be most suitable for you according to your hair type — all that remains is to integrate the haircare ritual into your daily life.
