Every bride wants a dreamy hairstyle with shiny, healthy hair for her wedding day. It is important that you take good care of your hair well in advance. It’s no secret that the right comb is essential for healthy hair free of breakage and split ends. There are countless varieties of combs and brushes to keep hair beautiful and healthy, to detangle curls and to lightly massage the head. In this article we give you tips on which combs and brushes are best suited for which hair.
Hairstylists and trichologists (experts on scalp and hair) recommend stocking up on at least three essential brushes: a comb, a beater, and a massage brush. But in order to find the perfect product on the Make up Store website, it is important to consider the material, the intended use and the desired results.
There are many materials from which brushes are made: plastic, metal, natural bristles, wood, silicone, carbon, nylon, ebonite and ceramic. Depending on the purpose, cosmetic products are divided into: massage brushes, brushes, semicircular and flat combs, and special electrical devices.
Selection criteria for the best hairbrush
In order to be able to choose the best brushes for you personally, you should definitely consider your hair type:
- Thick and stiff hair
The best combs for thick and stiff hair have sparse, flexible teeth and are made of hard but gentle materials like silicone, ebonite, and carbon fiber. But you should rather leave the massaging with natural brushes.
- Fine hair
You can optimally care for thin and dry hair with soft massage brushes that massage the scalp and thus “wake up” the hair follicles. Ditch your metal comb and use a comb with natural bristles or silicone teeth instead.
- Curly hair
Curly and frizzy hair loves brushes with long, sparse tines. Depending on the desired result, ceramic or metal brushes of different diameters can be used to enhance the curl charm.
- Short hair
Trendy short haircuts are easy to style with a short-spiked accessory. For light volume, a medium-diameter ceramic brush is a good choice. However, you should avoid using massage brushes with natural hair for short hairstyles.
- Long hair
Experts recommend using brushes and massage combs with dense teeth. Large diameter metal accessories are the best brushes for long hair, curls or frizzy ends.
Tip: Pay attention not only to the brush, but also to your diet and the care of your hair. Even the highest quality accessories cannot solve all problems. A high-quality and suitable brush is an important tool, but not a substitute for good care.

Hair brushes that aren’t right for your hair type or low-quality brushes can be just as damaging as a hot curling iron. Therefore, you should pay attention to the right hair care long before your wedding.
