One of the most important (if not the most important) tools to get waves is a Brush. Brushing your hair is essential to training your hair and ultimately becoming an elite waver. Brushes come in an array of shapes and styles that are meant to achieve different goals. We’re gonna break down the main brush categories: soft, medium, and hard.

Soft Brushes

These are typically used for shorter hair lengths being that it doesn't take much effort to reach the scalp. Soft brushes are also great for beginners since it will not put much strain on your scalp, it’ll help build your brushing tolerance. Lastly, using soft brushes are excellent for ending brushing sessions. They’re great for laying down tiny hairs and evenly distributing oils on your head.


Medium Brush

As expected, medium brushes play a nice in between role. These will more than likely be the brushes you use the most. They effectively reach your scalp, stretch your curls, and train your hair. This brush is essential for waving.


Hard Brush

Hard brushes are great for longer hair lengths, especially when wolfing. Be mindful about how you use hard brushes being that they can cause discomfort for some. Brush your hair but don’t hurt yourself.


Keep in mind, the purpose of brushing is to reach your scalp and stretch out your curls. So the tighter your curl pattern, the quicker you may need a harder brush. Inversely, it may take a little more time for people with looser curl patterns to need harder brushes. Ultimately, you have to find what style and technique work best for you. Just be sure to keep brushing!
