There’s so many round brushes out there and so many claiming to be the best. I have used hundreds of round brushes so I know what ones work and what don’t. I’m going to narrow it down for you in this post by telling you about the round brushes I have used in my 10 years of experience to help guide you in finding the best round brush with boar bristle.
Boar bristles are gentle on hair which makes this style round brush great for fine hair texture, but can be used on any hair texture. Boar bristles add awesome shine by sealing down your cuticle and create intense tension when blow drying hair. Having a lot of tension is key to having a smooth blowout. Boar bristle can be a little more difficult to work with if you are new to round brushing your hair, but stick with it because they give amazing results once you get the hang of it, and you will.
