Straight and Cork screw characteristics and usage.
STRAIGHT ROWS are generally used for SMOOTHING hair.
CORK SCREW is generally an all purpose as it will create everything from MEGA VOLUME to smoothing.
When rolling the hair around a cork screwed configuration the hair is given a micro texture increasing the volume almost like a micro perm within the length of the hair for MEGA VOLUME.
BOAR BRISTLE does not melt like NYLON but does flatten when excessive heat and pressure is applied.
This can be easily rectified by washing your brush with an ACIDIC shampoo then rinse.
Then watch the bristles spring back.
If you have burned the BOAR bristles it's telling you your dryer is TOO HOT or the filter needs cleaning. Otherwise pull back the nozzle from the brush, NEVER place the nozzle directly on the hair on a brush. SPOT BURNING OCCURS and your NOT drying your hair your just choking the dryer.
HANDLE DIAMETER & LENGTH is also very important if the handle is too thin you can stress your hand creating fatigue resulting in CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME.
A larger diameter handle can relieve this stress, a textured or foam handle allows easier grip and less fatigue when handling a boar brush.
Be sure to hold the handle as close to the head of the BRUSH as possible,this will help the balance which relieves the stress on the hand and adds to the ease of use.
BOAR brushes or a combo give you the real feel of the hair your working with and allow you to adjust the tension better for different types of hair then other types of brushes.
The finish and control is unrivaled.
Finally hair may tangle on the ends of a traditional BOAR BRISTLE brush so be careful to control the width of your sections.
