  • Thermal Brashing .

    Differs in that on the surface of the base there are a large number of holes. The air is evenly distributed inside the curls, promotes faster drying and fixation of the strands. Thermobrashing when stacking does not overdry the hair, thanks to the constant circulation of air flow.

First of all, it is necessary to take into account the material from which the base of the comb is made.

  • Plastic .This coating of the cylinder is short-lived, as it can melt and deform upon heating. Hair often clings to an uneven surface, which also causes inconvenience in use. The price of such a comb is low, but the quality leaves much to be desired.
  • Brashingi with metal base are heated more quickly and intensively, and, accordingly, the stacking process occurs faster, but they also have a negative effect on the effect. These brushes are not suitable for thin and weakened hair.
  • Ceramic brashing is in demand, it has positive characteristics. Special spraying from this material distributes and retains heat well, has antistatic effect. Thermalbrushes should preferably be purchased with a ceramic coating.
  • The wood is also a quality coating material. Due to the slight heating, it does not have a harmful effect on the hair. It is desirable that the wooden surface is varnished.

When choosing a brushing, it is necessary to take into account the diameter of the base. The longer the hair, the wider the brush circumference. For a short hairstyle, it is better to choose a diameter of 1.5-2.5 centimeters, for medium length - 3-5 centimeters. For long hair is preferable 6-9 centimeters in diameter.

If you need smaller curls, curl the ends or lay bangs, select the smaller base circle, to make the volume - it is better to use a larger size.

When choosing a comb, you need to pay attention to the material from which the handle is made. Since often hands when working with brashing wet from water or stowage, it is important that the brush does not slip out of the hands. For this, a rubberized handle is suitable.
