I have coarse, thick, frizzy/wavy color-treated hair that is generally healthy, but has a crazy texture (or so I've been told). I cannot handle my hair myself (despite getting BKT's) so I get it blown out/ conditioned every 5-7 days. Lately (past few months) I have noticed that the ends are getting very tangled, esp. starting a few days after the blow-out. When I look at the individual hairs, i see that some are bent at a 90% angle and others are twisted. I do not think that this is my natural texture because the rest of the hair is straight and realtively smooth. I'm also noticing way more split ends than usual.
I have been trying to think of what has been done differently to my hair and the only thing I can think of is I noticed that wheras my stylist used to use a pure boar brush (Marilyn Tuxedo, I think), he now uses a combination boar/and some kind of synthetic (maybe nylon). I think he switched b/c it made it easier to style my hair. I am wondering if this could be the cause of the frayed ends.
My stylist does use heat (obviously) during the blow-out, but he did so for 18 months without this happening.
Please let me know pure boar really does make a difference in the health of the hair. And, please recommend a high-quality round brush for my hair type (price is not an issue)
