HAIRBRUSH-OLOGY!

Written by: holly 13th April 2014

Dressing table full of brushes and combs?  Hair sometimes feels like it has a mind of its own, expanding where it shouldn’t, laying as flat as the proverbial pancake on your head or curling and frizzing in a peculiar way? WHY, WHY, WHY???? Well … the “mane” culprit for our unhappy locks may actually be our brushes.

The right brush will massage your scalp; help distribute oils; and help your hair grow longer, stronger, and more lustrous. But, the wrong brush can create frizz, knots, and even break your hair. There is certainly no lack of brushes to choose from, but keep in mind that each style is designed for a specific purpose or hair type. Here, the Mark Hill team work through Mark’s brush range to help you identify the one you are best suited to!
