These brushes are my favorite because they help you smooth and lift the hair without creating too much roundness or "curl". If you have hair that just won't obey, pick up a triangular brush and see how it works for you. I like to pull the hair with the flat side and spin it round just as I would with a round brush. The results are obviously different. W.O.W. has two kinds of bristles in three varying sizes. Find the one for you and get to it!
