The Right Hair Brush: Splurge and Steal

Kashuk Tools Hair Brush

Celebrity hairstylists and fashionistas swear by the Mason Pearson “Popular” hair brush. Someday I may own this brush — a splurge at $150. But until then, I found a cheaper fix that looks and feels like my coveted one.

Kashuk Tools Bristle Hair Brush is sold at Target for $14.99. Like the Mason Pearson, bristles are a combination of natural boar and synthetic nylon. The paddle has a supple cushion and the handle is contoured to comfortably fit hands.

Do you brush or comb wet hair? Brushing wet hair is safe and can even be better than a comb, which is rigid and may break fragile strands. Make sure the brush has ‘give.’

The Kashuk brush nicely smoothes tresses, massages the scalp and leaves a head full of shiny strands. It can be used for daily styling or blow-drying. Pick up the brush in the cosmetics section of Target as part of the Sonia Kashuk line.

I also really like the Diane #1037 paddle brush. This is a favorite at my salon and delivers a terrific blow-dry. It seems to grab and detangle the hair better than other nylon pin brushes. Diane can be found at beauty supplies and online (Amazon and others) for $5-$10.

I blow-dry with the Diane brush and style everyday with the Kashuk.

Clean brushes 1x per month by swishing in warm soapy water
