Hairbrushes are one of the hardest working tools in your arsenal, but more often than not, women use the wrong type for their hair. In fact, each style on the market is intended to be used with a certain, specific type of hair. For example, coarse hair loves wide-set teeth that don’t snag, while fine hair is enhanced by a boost from the dense bristles of a boar-bristle brush.

Have you been using the wrong brush all along? It’s totally possible, but an easy mistake to correct. Below, you’ll find a great selection of brushes that have been picked from the top user-rated styles, including several options for styling.

For Thick, Curly Hair

Across the board, this brush has earned five stars from users who report that it can tame even the most unruly curls. The teeth of this brush are soft, meaning you won’t rip out your hair when you encounter a tangle. In fact, it detangles with extreme ease. Also, you just can’t beat that sticker price.
