How to choose a styling brush ? Compare and find the best
In general, styling brushs do two things: they either curl or straighten your hair. There are some key differences between the types of styling brush that you will need to be aware of before you make your choice.
Straightening styling brushs work by heating up the hair, which heats up the cuticles inside the hair. When the hair cuticles are hotter, the hair becomes more malleable. The hotter the straighteners are the more malleable the hair becomes, meaning that the metal pads press the hair straight while the cuticles are malleable. Once the hair cools it sets into the position it has been forced into when hot. Hair Straighteners, contrary to their name, can also be sued to produce many different types of curl and waves. The straightener can actually both curl and straighten the hair, but this depends on the user being able to be versatile with the product.
There are two types of curler. These are called curling tongs and curling wands. Curling wands are now more common and make use of newer technology. The more traditional curling tongs are used for shorter hair as they can provide a bit of volume in the hair. Curlings wands on the other hand, are better suited for mid length to long hair and are more suited to creating spiral curls or loose cascading curls. The technology is similar to the straighter in that it heats the hair and moulds it while hot. The metal plates are rounded rather than straight, so that the hair is moved into the curl position and when it cools it fixes in that shape. Depending on the hair, curling can last the whole day, or if you already have waves in your hair, it can last right up until the next wash.
The straightener is much more common than the curler, as it is a more versatile product, but whichever you choose (and you may want both) there are a number of things to consider and a huge range to choose from.
