What to look for:
How long are the Bristles?
Too short they will not grip the hair, too long may tangle, this depends on the thickness of your hair. If it is fine hair shorter bristles are OK, but if your hair is thick short bristles may not grip the hair well and could make it difficult to blow dry.
How dense are the Tufts of Bristles?
Look at the thickness and texture of your hair for this, if the tufts of bristles are dense and your hair is thick and textured, they may not penetrate through the hair easily. If the tufts are spread apart the hair will fall into the bristles easier and blow drying will be much easier. Finer hair the tuft density should not be too thick nor to thin, as long as the hair can slide into the tufts.
How are the ends of the bristles finished?
Feel the ends of the bristle’s if they feel scratchy and stiff, they may cause damage to the hair and irritate scalp. If your hair is fragile this may cause breakage while blow-drying.
Are the rows straight or staggered?
