• Depends on the length of hair. Go to a AA barbershop and they will get you the right brush or comb for the length and style of hair.
  • Though the texture of African-American hair is generally coarser and more wiry than that of Caucasians, it is nevertheless very delicate and breaks easily. Therefore, I would recommend a natural bristle, such as a boar bristle brush for basic hair care. For further styling, or if your hair is very curly, you can use a wide-tooth comb or Afro-pick. The main thing is to be gentle with your hair to avoid breakage. Goldiemae
  • From personal experience I can say that it is best not to use a brush at all on African-American hair. I am an African-American with very coarse hair, and I almost destroyed my hair by brushing. I stopped using brushes several years ago and now I only use combs. I use a pick when I wash it to help detangle it, and I use a wide toothed comb at other times. Since I stopped brushing it, my hair has grown back thicker and fuller than it has been in years.
  • A seamless, wide-toothed comb works best for me. Seams can snag hairs. Brushes pull out more of my hair and make it frizzy.
  • Boars head brush.
