It's Time for a New Hair Brush (Seriously)

Time to ditch the old brush and start fresh
Photo 1/10
You know that hair brush? The one you've had since college, with a melted spot from your curling iron, more than a few missing bristles, and a dusty film made up of unknown products (and who knows what else)? Well, it's time to give it the boot. Listen, brushes get nasty; like dust mites, yeast, and bacteria nasty — and you don't want to transfer that stuff to your lovely locks! An old brush can weigh hair down, irritate your scalp, and even damage your strands.

As a general rule of thumb, you should replace your brush at least every year — which, if you're anything like us, means it's definitely time for a new brush. Here are some of the best hair brushes for every type of hair at every price point, and for everything you want it to do.
