All About Hairbrush Bristles: Part Four


Buying the right hair brush, shape, and bristle size for your hair type can be daunting. And that's why I'm here to give you the specifics. Earlier, I told you how ionic blow-dryers work by offering up negatively-charged ions to the positively-charged water molecules in your hair.

Ionic bristles work in much the same way. Manufactured with a specially-treated synthetic material that gives off negative ions, this type of bristle attracts water, helping the hair to dry faster, all while resisting static. Ionic bristles also give a shinier, softer finish as a result of its ability to seal the hair cuticle and restore the water balance in the hair. So long, flyaways.

Here are some ionic hair brush suggestions: Spornette Icera Ceramic Ionic Hair Brush ($13); Bio Ionic iTools Nano-Ionic Conditioning Brush ($35); or Olivia Garden Ceramic and Ion AntiStatic Square Cushioned Paddle Brush ($11).
