Been seeing threads about which brushes to use and hardly anyone recommends all three brushes besides me and a few others.  So I figured why not give some basic points to why all three brushes should be in the majority of us wavers possession.  The reason I say majority is because some textures may be too straight and curly for the hard brush while other textures may be too coarse for the soft brush

Hard Brush: Mainly for coarse hair and for achieving depth with waves, good to use when hair is long

    Creates and deepens waves quicker than softer brushes
    During long wolfing sessions, is key to keeping your hair manageable
    When used for shower brushing, it softens and lays hair down more than softer brushes
    When hair curls, it trains to lay the hair down better
    Can act as a comb to untangle hair which is one of the causes of weak areas


Medium Brush: For all textured hair, straight, medium and coarse.  Does the work of both soft and hard brush

    When hair is at a shorter length, it replaces the hard brush by helping with dept more
    When hair is at a longer length, it replaces the soft brush by helping with connection more
    Can adjust on what you want worked on just by applying more or less pressure (more pressure, deeper waves; less pressure, better connection)
    Replaces the hard brush when shower brushing when hair is too long for the soft brush but not long enough for the hard


Soft Brush: Mainly for straight, curly hair and for when hair is short.  Vital for connection

    Helps train hair to stay laid down
    Helps with connection more than harder brushes
    Can be used to the end of wolfing sessions to keep hair laid down during the day
    Lasts a little longer than harder brushes from the bristles being more flexible

yeah, i thought i was too tender headed for a hard brush, too.  but once the brush softens up a bit and your hair gets long enough, the hard brush doesn't bother your scalp as much as you would think it would

u on point south. i been using all three. i wet my hair or h2o method. i brush with the hard for a while. then i wet it and use medium 4 a while. i wet mt hair again and use the soft. i apply indian hemp + cc then finish with the soft brush 4 bout 10 min. by this time my hair is layed down. now i wet do rag and wear it 4 boutr 2 or 3 hours. if im wolfing i put wave cap over do rag. when i remove my doo rag my hair looking picture perfect. thats my method and all 3 brushes have their advantages like u explained. this a good thread south.
