The Comb vs. The Brush
We love getting creative and experimenting, but some rules of hair care aren’t meant to be broken. To tell which tool is best for the job, it really comes down to understanding the intricacies of your options.
Wet hair loves a wide-toothed comb. Unlike a brush, a comb will gently detangle wet hair without causing breakage or split ends. Reach for a comb when you need to distribute products evenly throughout the hair, like your favorite leave-in conditioner. If you’re going for a slicked-back look, a comb on wet hair will get the job done.
For added volume and movement while blow-drying, a truly great brush is an absolute necessity for every woman’s hair styling arsenal. Patrick swears by his Mason Pearson brush, which he insists is a must-have for a smooth shine. It stimulates the scalp as you blow-dry, increasing blood flow to the roots and distributing hair’s natural oils for a healthy sheen.
In the battle of the comb vs. the brush, we say it’s better if they join forces. Brushes might seem like the overall favorite for styling, but nothing beats the clean precision of a comb when you’re parting wet-hair pre-blowout. Like any art, hair styling is a craft, which means finely-tuned skills beat out broad strokes any day.
