1. Wide-tooth comb
Let’s face it—not all of us have silky smooth hair. And then again, even the best hair can get tangled up when you come out of the shower or wake up in the morning. This is when a wide-tooth comb comes handy. The teeth are designed well-apart from one another so you can de-tangle easily. The wide-tooth design will also help you avoid breakage that otherwise takes place when you use a regular comb.
2. Fine-tooth comb
A fine-tooth comb is used to work the details of your hairstyle. But make sure you comb your hair slowly because you might end up breaking hair. This one also helps you backcomb comb perfectly if you want a puff or wish to add volume to your hair.
3. Rat-tail comb
A rat-tail comb is nothing but a fine-tooth comb that comes with a handle. But you should know that the handle is rather useful. Well, it is used to create a parting in your hair when you wish to style it in a certain way. If you’re always struggling with getting the parting right, a rat-tail comb is your magic tool.
4. Rake comb
Long haired girls, does your hair get tangled too often? Use a rake comb! This kind of comb helps you rake through your hair without hair loss! So basically, if you think your hair has become rather frizzy and seems like a huge mess that won’t go away with a simple comb, reach out for a rake comb.
5. Dresser comb
A part of this comb has teeth that are really close to one another while the other has teeth that are slightly apart from one another. These combs are usually found in salons and can be effective in moving all your hair in one stroke.
6. Paddle brush
Large paddle brushes help in keeping your hair smooth. This one doesn’t add volume to your hair but it surely flattens out the frizz giving you sleek hair! Oh and it works for all types of hair!
7. Round brush
If you’re looking for major volume with a blowout, a round brush is your tool. This one also helps you curl your hair perfectly. This type of brush will lift your hair as you curl them and give you hair that’s voluminous and stylish.
8. Teasing brush
While backcombing, teasing and ratting, it is advisable to use a teasing brush. This one has boar bristles that vary in length and distribute the sebum in your hair making your scalp less oily. Besides, this one also doesn’t cause any breakage while you tease your hair. Perfect to add volume to a big hairdo like a beehive or a bouffant, this brush helps you ace that perfect retro look.
