Hair-brushing 101 with BACHCA - French Beauty Co.
Hair brushing: It seems simple enough, right? Even though we’ve all been brushing our hair for years, neglecting this crucial step in any hair care routine is easy. Brushing your hair is essential to refine your luscious locks while reviving softness, shine, and manageability. But did you know that choosing the right brush for this crucial task is as equally important as brushing your hair in the first place? Now that BACHCA has launched at French Beauty Co (cue your round of applause), we will help you answer the question, what hairbrush is right for me? Let’s get into it! 
Wooden Hairbrush with Boar and Nylon Bristles

Do you find that your hair is on the finer side? Fine hair tends to be characterised by its tendency to become oily faster, and be prone to tangling and knotting. If fine hair is what you have, reach for a brush with softer bristles. BACHCA has chosen Boar Bristles for their ability to easily detangle fine hair and prevent knotting. Due to the unique properties of Boar Bristles, it works to detangle each strand without damaging them. The other advantage of using Boar Bristles is they won’t weaken fine hair, and even close the cuticle of the hair shaft to enhance your hair’s natural shine. By including Nylon Bristles, this BACHCA brush prevents static build-up, which can cause frizz. The result? Hair that is smooth, shiny and perfectly detangled. 

Wooden Detangling Brush with Nylon Bristles

If your hair is on the thicker side, or you find that when you have excess oil, it’s concentrated on the roots of your hair, you’ll get the best results from a Nylon Bristle Brush. If you use natural haired brushes, like Boar Bristles on thicker hair, you’ll find that they’re too soft to give you that satisfying brush that you’re seeking. Using Nylon Bristles, especially ones like BACHCA’s that include a protective nib, gently massage and soothe the scalp and help distribute concentrated treatments and  oils throughout the hair, giving it extra nourishment, shine and protection. 

Wooden Comb

Combs are truly the unsung heroes of the hair brush. They’re incredibly versatile, can be used on wet or dry hair, and can even be used to enhance any hair treatments, conditioners or oils. BACHCA’s wooden comb is perfect for detangling dry or damp hair, especially hair that is curly, kinky or coiled. The unique wide-spaced teeth are perfect for reshaping curls and reducing frizz in the hair. Then, after applying your favourite hair treatments, use the comb to work it through the hair to ensure an even distribution and achieve even more spectacular results.


So, whether your hair is long or short, straight, curled or coiled, brushing your hair regularly is a non-negotiable step! Aim to brush it at least twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening with a high-quality brush or comb like the ones from BACHCA. Opting for lower quality brushes can weaken your hair, expose the cuticle, increase frizz and irritate your scalp. While it’s easy to think of hair brushes as simple tools that haven’t been reinvented throughout history, their impact on the hair cannot be understated. So, invest in a high-quality brush that’s designed for your hair type, and concerns, and revel in the joy that comes with perfectly tamed tresses.
