Combing through history
The staple tools of your hair care routine, brushes and combs are essential accessories. It’s hard to imagine a time when there were no hairbrushes, but they are actually relatively recent innovations. Archaeological finds have demonstrated that combs were amongst the first tools created by man. Hairbrushes came much later and were originally the preserve of the wealthy as they were handmade and expensive. Brushes weren’t manufactured commercially until the late 18th century. In the 19th century during the Industrial revolution, it became possible to mass-produce brushes and this when they finally became affordable for ordinary people.
Brushing the past aside with new technology
Early hairbrushes were fashioned from costly materials including wood and ivory and featured natural bristles. In recent years, new materials and technology, together with a greater understanding of ergonomics, have enabled the production of diverse brushes with unique characteristics. These days, you can choose different brushes to style your hair or to solve specific problems including tangles and there are designs to suit all hair types and lengths.
