Image used with permission by copyright holder

While the majority of us think through what skincare brands or products to use for our skincare routines, only a few of us actually give thought to what hairbrush to use. Most of us are still probably using the budget brush we impulse bought at the grocery store in college. However, a boy only becomes a man once he throws away his 3-in-1 body wash and low-grade hairbrush. I don’t make the rules.

A great hairbrush for men has the ability to prevent sebum build-up, seal in split ends, reduce frizz, and stimulate the hair follicles. But are you caught in a tangle about what hairbrush to purchase? That’s where we come in. Keep reading to see what hairbrush works best for every hair type. If you want to take it a step further, you can also check out our list of best hair gels for hair styling purposes.

Beards are a great sense of personal style so long as you keep up with the regular maintenance of it. If you have had one for a while you’re probably well-acquainted with the tools of the trade, from nourishing beard conditioners to beard balms and beard oils. If you sport longer facial hair, or if your whiskers are growing longer than you anticipated, there’s another essential tool you need in your grooming arsenal: a high-quality beard brush.

The best beard brushes can help you in multiple ways from taming lengthy beards, reducing irritation and beard itch, and adding a bit more style and polish to unruly facial hair. While high-quality beard combs are helpful in their own right, longer beards require a brush. The ideal beard brush features a wooden base or handle with bristles crafted from the finest materials like boar hair, as you need dense bristle materials to work through disheveled facial hair, all the better to slowly but surely soften your beard as you brush.

It seems that over the past few years, more guys have been exploring tips on how to grow a beard, either for the first time or with a renewed interest after going clean-shaven for years.

That, naturally, has led to a boom in guys appearing on Zoom calls and in-person meetings with facial hair where perhaps, there once was none outside of the month of November for no shave or Movember.
