GranNaturals boar bristle paddle brush Paddle style brush. I love the wooden handle and soft bristles. This combination is perfect for fine and or thinning hair. The brush loses some of its bristles but for the price, I would not be concerned unless an entire plug comes out. This is not a detangle brush, so don’t even try. Also, this brush will not be the best option for Afro-textured hair. Good

According to Stacey, Hair Research Analyst, “The main features to look for in a brush for thinning hair is its bristles and its the spacing of those bristles and their stiffness.” If you are interested in straightening your hair you should read my article called: The best straightening brush for thin hair. If they are spaced too wide then the brush will not be as effective. In addition, if the bristles are too stiff they are going to scratch your scalp. Generally speaking for thin hair the brush needs to have softer bristles.
