The STORY behind Styling brushes: Aerated vs BOAR
If you are a user, you will understand what we are about to discuss.
If you are currently using aerated brushes here is something to think about.
Over the decades the most famous stylists had a passion for BOAR BRISTLE BRUSHES.
In fact there is a cult following using BOAR BRUSHES.
BOAR bristle brushes were considered old school for a time and the aerated styling brushes crept into the world of blow drying.
It may have been they were originally created for the retail market as they are generally cheaper the manufacture.
Now aerated has seemly taken over the mainstream market both retail and professional.
They are now manufactured in ceramic, ionic and with heat resistant plastic. Every color and shape for styling and oh so light. It's a wonder they don't come scented.
Aerated brush bristles are nylon bristles wound around a wire that is inserted into a cylinder with holes. These bristles may be irregular, straight or kinked. Usually these bristles are sharp resulting in scratching the scalp. The bristles are usually short and cause burning of the scalp when held too close with a hot dryer.
These brushes are weightless. They don't really grip the hair and the hair tends to slide off the brush. UNLESS, you SPIN, SPIN, SPIN, makes me dizzy. The fact is more stylists now have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome due to this repetitive movement.
They say they heat up fast so does a lot of other brushes but they DON'T COOL DOWN. We know as stylist's to truly set the hair its the COOLING that does this, NOT the HEAT.
Often stated the holes on the barrel are supposed to allow air to pass through the brush, but when there is damp hair wrapped around this barrel, does this really occur?
Hair dryers have gotten HOTTER, is this because of the aerated brush?
Something to ponder.
How does this effect the hair?
Especially in today's market there are so many chemical services. Using an aerated brush on a frequent basis can increase breakage. Just too much heat on chemically treated hair. What about hair color when using an aerated brush continually the hair becomes more FRAGILE and more difficult to hold color, preventing the hair from looking healthy.
YES, heat resistant bristles were mentioned earlier, but what about the Hair!!
Aerated brushes are even coated with chemicals to decrease static which is usually caused by those excessively HOT DRYERS since now you have to burn the style into the hair.
Instead of drying the hair your frying it!
Let's look at BOAR BRISTLES this NATURAL FIBER is hair too.
BOAR BRISTLES help with the distribution of natural sebum from the scalp throughout the hair, if you are using a BOAR BRUSH. When blow drying you get a better grip from the NATURAL BRISTLES without using excessive heat.
NATURAL BOAR BRUSHES, are the most efficient way to blow dry hair. Less work is involved when you choose a BOAR BRISTLE BRUSH and the quality of your hair can't be beat.
These types of bristles DO NOT add DAMAGE to the hair, in fact seeing BOAR BRISTLES burnt down on your hair brush should tell you your hair dryer is either clogged or the thermostat is no longer working properly.
Maybe its time to replace it, or tweak the way you hold the dryer. It may be just too close to the hair. If you place a hairdryer nozzle against your hand when its turned on with heat it burns, so why would you place your dryer directly on the hair on the brush ?
