10 Best Hair Brushes In 2018
25 January 2018
When you think about hair care essentials, products like shampoo and conditioner immediately come to mind. While hair care products are the key to maintaining healthy hair, you’ll never achieve the style of your dreams without the best hair brushes. From natural bristle brushes to vented brushes, each tool serves its own purpose in helping you create your favorite hairstyles.
If your brushes are looking a little worse for the wear and you’re thinking about replacing them, look no further. We’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite brushes of the year.
Synthetic Bristle Brush
Brushes made of synthetic bristles can be ideal for detangling hair. The smooth bristles easily glide through strands, leaving you with polished locks in a matter of minutes. This brush is a favorite of Daniel Roldan, Matrix artistic director and brand ambassador, because it works for all hair types.
Drybar The Super Lemon Drop Daily Detangler, $16.00 MSRP
Natural Bristle Brush
You may have heard brushing your hair 100 times a day is the key to smooth and shiny locks. While the jury is still out on how many times you need to brush your hair in order to achieve flawless strands, all of your brushing will be futile if you don’t use the proper tools.
Natural bristle brushes are typically made of boar bristles. They can help redistribute the natural oils your scalp produces throughout your hair.

Mixed Bristle Brush
A mixed bristle brush gives you the best of both worlds—the detangling abilities of a synthetic bristle brush with the smoothing powers of a natural bristle brush. Mixed bristle brushes are great at laying your edges flat for a perfect ballerina bun.
Shu Uemura Large Paddle Brush, $78.00 MSRP
A basic paddle brush is a must-have in everyone’s hair care routine. The multi-purpose brush detangles hair with ease and helps to create a killer blowout.

A vented brush is perfect for the woman on the go. The vents allow the air from your blow dryer to hit your strands from all angles, potentially speeding up drying time. Because you’ll spend less time blasting your locks with heat, a vented brush may also help cut back on heat damage.
Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Turbo Vent Pro Shaper Brush, $17.05 MSRP
Round brushes come in all sizes and materials, but they’re all created with the same goal: to give you a flawless blowout with major volume. When used correctly, a round brush can create volume from your roots all the way down to your ends. The resulting look is a bouncy blowout you won’t be able to stop photographing.
Shu Uemura Small Round Hair Brush, $63.00 MSRP
If “the bigger, the better,” is your personal styling motto, you need a teasing brush in your arsenal. This brush makes backcombing your hair easier than ever, helping you achieve sky-high volume.
Olivia Garden Style-Up Folding Teasing Brush, $7.95 MSRP
Your hair is weak and vulnerable when it’s wet. If find you often brush your hair after showering, invest in a brush designed to make detangling easy and keep breakage to a minimum.
Wet Brush Original, $11.99 MSRP
Wide Tooth Comb
A wide tooth comb is a must-have for every curly girl! The comb’s teeth glide through curls without snagging. Pro tip: When detangling your curls, begin at your ends and gently make your way up instead of starting at your roots.
Fromm Diane Wide Tooth Comb, $2.76 MSRP
Rat Tail Comb
A rattail comb makes parting your hair a breeze—even for your most complicated hairstyles. The comb’s fine teeth ensures the precise parts. It’s also great for smoothing down any cowlicks that may arise.

“Master this brush and you can dry any type of hair,” Roldan says. “This brush will teach you discipline, heat control, and the natural fall and shine of the head.”
