Many women are choosing to buy an ionic hair brush instead of its regular counterpart. In fact, some reputed brands such as Fuller also have a wide range of ionic brushes for men. But the question here is that, are you buying an ionic hairbrush just because everybody else is doing the same, or do you actually know how an ionic brush is beneficial for your hair?
Before investing money in any product, it is important to understand the pros and cons of buying the same. This post focuses on the good and bad (if any) about buying an ionic hair brush.
So, what actually is an ionic hair brush and how does it help?
As the name suggests, ionic hairbrush emits both negative and positive ions. Due to an imbalance between positive and negative ions, your hair tends to lose their sheen and get frizzy. Further, towel-drying, brushing, styling and coloring strip your hair of negative ions. So, too many positive ions in your hair make your hair repel each other, hence giving way to issues such as split ends, frizz, and flyaways. With the help of an ionic hair brush, this ionic imbalance can be restored as the heat released by these hair-brushes adds the required amount of negative ions back to your hair. Thus, it makes your hair manageable, lustrous and soft.

This really affects the growth of your hair and many people, especially women have to say goodbye to their dream of long, glossy and healthy locks. An ionic hair brush turns out to be a boon in such cases as the negative ions seals and smoothes split ends.
