A military hair brush is typically oval-shaped so that it fits in the palm of one’s hand. Used since the 1700s, it is available in different styles, with rows of bristles that can be soft or thick. Some brushes are straighter while others are curved, and there is also the option to purchase two brushes so you can use one in each hand. There are also different types of bristles which can suit different personal preferences and hair styles, while military hair brushes are sometimes available in different sizes.

Depending on the style, length, and texture of your hair, the type of bristles on a military hair brush can vary. Strong, firm bristles are typically suited for styling thick, curly hair. The bristles should usually be thinner and softer if one has a sensitive scalp, while longer bristles are typically good for combing long hair. There is also often a choice of natural boar bristles. These can help move oils and proteins from your hair to the rest of the scalp, while brushes with nylon tufts are often available as well.

You can also find the best military hair brush based on hair style. A hair brush of this type is often used for hairstyles that are slicked back, while it was originally used by military personnel with short buzz cuts. Curved varieties, however, can be used with a hair dryer to make your hair look fuller. Other features of military hair brushes include an air cushion under the bristles, and many types are sized for use by people with almost any type of hair.

Plastic, wood, or metal can make up the base of a military hair brush. You can choose one based on the material of choice or the overall look of the product. The choice can be made to suit your personality rather than hairstyle, but both can be factored into the decision.

There are also several different brands on the market to choose from. You can choose a military hair brush according to the company that makes it; some brands are more typical in style while others can have a vintage look. The choice can also be made by doing research into the most reliable and durable brushes, and which companies are known for producing such products. If cost is an issue, then research online can help; just check the websites of manufacturers and dealers to find the best price.
