Mimis Kru - How to select a great hair brush

This can be a difficult choice! How many brushes have you selected, bought on a whim in a supermarket or on line. Got home tried it out and its not been the correct size? Or the bristles were too Sharpe and cut through your scalp let alone your hair? Or you curled your hair around the brush and then fell to a panic attack that it got stuck? The fear of cutting that brush out of your hair! and naturally was your husbands thought for disturbing you or rushing you out the door! Or even breathing around you lol. Or best classic; the brush just didn’t even pick up your hair, maybe too big or too small. It’s a mine field choosing that right brush to suit your hair needs and your ability to use it. Yet a brush is so important, if your spending a fortune on hair shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling products to safe guard your hair the last thing you want to do is damage it with the wrong brush. So from detangling to styling , here are some tips from MimisKru.

Synthetic bristles: help to detangle hair.

Boar bristles are soft and help to smooth the cuticle within your hair, leaving a shine. Great for thin fragile hair, less harsh. Helps to create blood flow within the scalp. Recommend a paddle brush or flat brush for long hair. Or a round boar bristle brush for styling.
Nylon bristles are perfect for styling and detangling especially when they are made around a ceramic aluminium tube, helps to reduce frizz and creates a great wave when heat of a hairdryer is applied, setting on a cooler heat maintains the shape of the wave to stay longer.

Wooden bristles: work great on brushing thick dry hair.

A wide tooth detangle brush is recommended for very curly hair, best combed whilst wet to allow to dry into its natural wave.

All these brushes are available to buy at MimisKru Hair and Beauty Salon or in our Online Shop:
