This hard working brush made the cut last year for one of my top tools that makes natural hair easy. The Olivia Garden Healthy Hair Brush is a must have for naturals. One of the biggest struggles of being natural is fighting with tangled. This brush gets the job done, even on the thickest hair.
This hard working brush made the cut last year for one of my top tools that makes natural hair easy. The Olivia Garden Healthy Hair Brush is a must have for naturals. One of the biggest struggles of being natural is fighting tangles. This brush gets the job done, even on the thickest hair.
My brush gets the most use on wash day. I brush tangles out with a breeze while my hair is wet in the shower. It detangles and helps get my hair squeaky clean. The large surface area feels great against your scalp and tackles a lot of hair at once allowing you to work fast. Hair strands are less likely to break if you brush gently while your hair is wet, starting at the ends and working your way up.
In the salon this brush gets the most use as a blow out tool. I prefer the brush drying method over the comb attachment because I can control the heat better avoiding irreversible damage to strands. I can detangle quickly without causing breakage or hurting my client.
Wrapping straight hair is easier with this brush. You can gather a lot of hair and brush it smooth against you head before wrapping with your silk scarf.
This is a professional tool so it's priced a little higher and harder to find. The sturdy wood design and high quality bristle pad make this brush last longer than most. I've been using it for at least seven years and I have not been disappointed. To keep in good condition, clean it frequently. Remove shed hair with a comb and brush away oil and product buildup with shampoo and a toothbrush. If you need to disinfect use vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice.
This Healthy Hair Brush is sold only in professional stores, but you can buy on Amazon here. This is not a sponsored post, I just love this brush and I know it will save you time and make detangling easy. I have included links and if you use them I get a small percentage of your purchase. However, it does not cost you any extra. Try it, let me know how it works for you in the comments below.
