StyleBell Customer Question: What is the best round brush to use to curl my ends under while styling?
Hair Type: very straight fine hair about 2 inches below shoulders in length
Answer: Having fine hair is not always a bad thing, especially when it comes to shopping for brushes! With fine hair, the rule of thumb is: the smaller the brush is, the more curl you will get. I recommend staying with a brush that is between 1 1/2 and 2 1/2" to get a nice, defined curl while turning the hair under. That being said, picking the type of brush material you want is mostly personal preference. In my opinion, for finishing touches like curling the ends under, I like to stick with Tourmaline or Ceramic Ionic to help protect the hair from the heat you will be applying and because these materials work most similarly to flat irons and other heated styling tools. The most important thing to keep in mind while using a round brush and blowdryer to style your hair is to assure you are using the "cool shot" button on your blow dry once the hair is dry to set the hair in place. With thermal brushes like the ones I mentioned, cooling your hair around the brush will seal the cuticle and give you the longest lasting (and shiniest) styling results possible!
Hope this helps!
