What type of brush is best for frizzy hair

You may be asking what is frizz and how can I tame it. Frizz and static is caused by lack of moisture in your strands, so if you are struggling with dry ends, your locks will expand to absorb hydration from the air. Winter time is good for creating the frizz because of all the dry hot air being circulated. One of the best ways to combat the frizz is to add moisture back to your hair. If you have long fine hair try using a hydrating conditioner or hair mask in the shower and stop using or consider removing drying alcohol-infused products. And of course choose the right brush, it can also make a huge difference. You might also be interested in "Best brush to avoid split ends" or "Does coconut oil help static hair".

Conclusion

TIP: If you have long or thick hair, try using a regular full volume hair dryer first to remove excess moisture. Then turn your head upside down as you dry for additional volume. After your hair reaches 80% dry, style as usual using one of the brushes mentioned above. This technique will save you time and give you lots of volume.
TIP: Most all plastic combs break when dropped on a hard surface or accidentally bumped into a hard object.
TIP: When using a thermal brush or hot air brush always start on the lowest heat setting you can to style your hair thus avoiding frizz and hot spot hair damage.

I am sure there are some really good brushes out there I left off the list so please let me know. Feel free to comment on what works for you and how much you paid. If this has been helpful please comment.
