Classical synthetic brush

Brush for coloring of hair – one of the most important tools of the colourist which defines not only quality of drawing structure and speed of performance of procedure, but also possibility of an embodiment of a creative plan.

All kistochkovy family can be divided into two groups: classical and with a hairbrush.

The brush for coloring of hair equipped with a hairbrush is irreplaceable during the work with long hair and in case of application of semi-permanent structures.

It should be noted that the issue of convenience of use of this or that tool is resolved to the discretion of the master. Many maestros of hairdresser’s business incline to that it is more convenient to put the semi-permanent and tinting means with sponges and applicators which are used at a chemical wave.

The representatives of producers of professional brands making tools for hairdressing salons recommend to make a choice for classical hairbrushes, reasoning it is features of a structure of hair and influence of dyes on the top scaly layer.

On a photo — a brush with a hairbrush and a metal hook for highlighting

Permanent, semi-permanent and blondiruyushchy dyes are calculated on a loosening of a cuticle of a hair midstream. Combing in such state is fraught with injury of hair, especially if it is about thin and sharp teeth which have hairbrushes from a reverse side of a brush.

Pay attention!
Process of a loosening of a cuticle is started in 30-40 seconds after dye is applied on a lock.
During this time hair can be combed without damage of structure.

We will bring a small conclusion. It is possible to use brushes with a hairbrush in case you masterly own skill of coloring and are capable to carry out procedure as fast as possible. In other cases the classical brush is recommended.

On a tip of a brush the hook, metal or plastic can settle down. As practice shows, good professional brushes aren’t equipped with metal elements, so, the choice is obvious.

And functional brushes from 4 to 5 cm wide are considered as the most convenient. If coloring assumes creation of color transitions, choose thinner copy, 1-2 cm wide.

Choosing tools and adaptations for coloring of hair, be guided by those tasks which you should carry out

Pay attention!
Brushes 3 cm wide are useless and nonfunctional, they too narrow for one-color coloring, are too wide for color nuances and can fill up a collection of the unnecessary tool.

If the brush has width more than 5 cm, it becomes irreplaceable only when toning long hair, for more difficult the technician it is inapplicable. Getting a set for coloring of hair, you can face enough excess tools.

Classification of brushes by width

Rigidity of a brush — also not the last criterion of a choice. Tools with rigid fibers will be suitable for coloring of long hair as are capable not only to distribute evenly dye, but also at least to comb a little hair.

Unfortunately, they leave behind not the most pleasant feelings when the speech comes about coloring of roots. Therefore the rigid bristle is applied in effect brushes which technology of use doesn’t assume contact with skin.

As leaders in production of hairdresser’s brushes consider brands:

  • Schwarzkopf Professional
  • Revlon Professional
  • Wella
  • Matrix
  • Goldwell

Carry henna and a basma, extracts of plants, an onions peel and fruit juice to natural dyes. It would seem, the safest dye has to is proud to bear a palm and to enjoy national love. However all far not so.

All the matter is that gifts of the mother nature are capable to change a hair color only to short term, color burns out on the sun, washes off, especially if it is about the rigid or chlorinated environment of pools.

It is worth resorting to such coloring that who wants to correct only a little a hair color or it is inclined to the allergic reactions caused by chemical dyes.

Physical dyes

Such means don’t demand use of oxide, they don’t get into structure of a hair core, and only create the thinnest colored film. Various coloring shampoos, mousses, skins, gels and balms belong to this category.
