Finding the right brush for your thick hair

Thick Hair

Hours to heat style, ages to brush and going through bobbles a mile a minute? We see hear? you!

Thick hair is gorgeous and glossy when looked after, but we know much of a hassle it can be to maintain. We salute all thick haired girls, taming your hair is a skill when you’ve got so much of it!

Thick hair refers to the size of the actual strands of hair, rather than how close the hair follicles are together on your scalp. It’s important to identify whether your hair is thick, full, or even both, as then you can make sure you’re using the right products and techniques.

Everyday hair care comes down to the tools and products you use. Using a Tangle Angel hair brush for thick hair can help you keep your mane in check, detangling quickly and easily so that you can get on with your day and look fabulous while you do it! Find out more about what tips and tools we recommend to make your tresses look and feel terrific.

Re:born Xtreme: The perfect brush for thick hair

The Re:born Xtreme was created with thick hair in mind: a paddle brush that’s the right brush for thick, curly hair. Its Memory-Flex® bristles move with your hair rather than against it, reducing stress on your strands and scalp.

These gentle features make it a great brush for long, thick hair suitable for use on extensions and weaves as well as natural hair.

Tangle Angel: The definitive hair brush for thick hair

We celebrate differences here at Tangle Angel, which is why we’ve developed a range of brushes to cater for the needs of all hair types, including thick hair just like yours.

Not only have we developed our brushes to look beautiful, but they have a variety of features making them the perfect choice for your barnet. We’d noticed that not many detangling brushes for thick hair on the market had handles, so we added one to ours for greater control while detangling.

They’re also all water resistant, as many girls with thick hair prefer to do their brushing in or after a shower.

Top tips for looking after thick hair

Having thick hair can mean you’re the envy of your friends, but those of us with thick locks know it can be an ordeal to manage your mane.

We’ve compiled some hot tips so that, armed with your new Tangle Angel brush, you can keep your mane looking magnificent.

How to use your hair brush

Start at the tips of your hair, brushing out the ends before working your way up to the top of your head.

Once you’ve brushed through in sections, you can use your brush from root to tip to make sure all the tangles are out.

Don’t wash it too often

Washing your hair too much can dry it out and wash out the natural oils your hair produces that keeps it smooth and shiny.

If, like many thick haired women you struggle with dryness, try cutting back to only one or two washes a week.

Keep your cool

While we’re talking about washing, try and wash your hair in as cool water as possible. Yes, we all love a boiling hot shower but it doesn’t do your hair any favours.

Hot water can strip your hair of essential oils, making it look dry and dull. Try a cool rinse at the end of your next shower – it will seal your hair’s cuticles and encourage a healthy shine.

Limit the amount of heat styling

Regular heat styling can damage your locks and make it frizzy.

If you like to blow dry your hair, consider letting it air dry for a little bit first before using your hair dryer. And of course, always use a high quality heat protection spray first!

Get it cut

As with many other types, there are certain hair cuts that will flatter your face and help your hair look its best.

Next time you’re in the salon, chat to your stylist about your hair’s needs and what they think will look best, for example more layers to make your hair more manageable.

Brushes for other hair types

We’re all born with beautiful, different hair, it’s part of what makes us unique. Find out more about other kinds of hair and how to keep them all tangle free, with the help of Tangle Angel and our tips and tricks.
