Soft Bristle Brushes (2022 Top 6 Picks of a Stylist)

by Lauren Gilmore
[ Hair Stylist and Educator ]

Are you using the right brush for your hair type?

Soft bristle brushes are ideal for finer hair types, anyone suffering from hair loss or for damaged hair.

They are designed to glide through the hair easier which helps to prevent damaging hair through brushing, they also help to give the hair shine.

Softer bristles are also designed to stimulate the scalp, which increases the circulation to the Hair follicle, all of the above helps to promote healthier hair growth.

However, these brushes don't work well on thicker hair types as the bristles aren't strong enough to penetrate through the hair.

6 of My Favorite Soft Bristle Hair Brushes

1. Wet Brushes

The wet brush has soft IntelliFlex bristles that gently pull apart tangles in the hair. It is designed so you can brush with less force, preventing damage through brushing.

I really like this brush as it can be used for any hair type and it really does stop any damage to the hair. I use these brushes every day in the salon and they are very popular amongst my clients.

I think it's really important if you do have finer hair or you're experiencing hair thinning, that you really find the right hairbrush to suit your hair needs.

All of the above hair brushes will give you that, they are designed to relieve tension, while still detangling the hair, leaving your hair smoothsoft and shiny.
