For those of you with curly hair, use a wooden bristle brush, preferably a brush with bristles far apart from each other. The wooden bristles are gentle on dry, brittle hair, and won’t separate the curls. This type of brush will keep your hair looking curly and tangle-free.
A cushioned nylon bristle brush can also be used on curly hair. This brush can detangle curly hair with ease because the hair moves through the nylon bristles easily and it can shape and smooth at the same time.
