Best for detangling thick hair
For thick, coarse, long hair try a square nylon paddle brush. If you are a frequent hair mask user, keep this brush in the shower and use it to brush through the mask. It will ensure that every parched strand is drenched with hydration. Professional Black Paddle Cushion Hair Massage Brush Hairbrush Comb, $4, amazon.ca.
Best for detangling wet hair
For fine, thin, medium-length hair, use a comb with wide-set teeth to untangle knots. Ghd detangling comb, $27, sephora.ca.
Best for blowing out long, thick hair
If you like the rounded ends of a bouncy blowout, use a round brush. To cut down on drying thick hair, make it a ceramic round brush. Once heat is applied, the tourmaline and ceramic blend emits ions to help flatten, smooth and speed up drying time. Ion Cermanic Round V Pin Brush, $7, sallybeauty.com.
