Admit it--the abundance of volumizing, shine-enhancing, strengthening shampoos, conditioners, and other hair care products has made it easy for you to neglect the importance of the good old hairbrush. You don’t hesitate to spend thousands on the latest hair treatments, but on a hairbrush? But what if you were told that a quality hairbrush can do the job of half those hair care products, would you change your mind? Think of it this way, a good brush set is like having great underwear. The right one makes a good base for anything you put over it.
This is what we learned from hairstylist Lourd Ramos at his flagship salon Creations. We experienced the difference between using our old combs and his sets of Acca Kappa tools that worked magic on our hair along with some hair care products of the label. Before the brand became household name with its Acca Kappa fragrance, its main focus was the production of quality hairbrushes and accessories. Established in 1869, the company became the official brush supplier to Queen Elizabeth and the Royal Family, and today, it is the largest manufacturer of quality brushes in Italy.

The brand’s superstar, the Protection Brush, is part of Acca Kappa’s extensive range of hairbrushes. Its looped bristles gently massages the scalp to stimulate microcirculation, which Ramos says, is beneficial to the hair follicles. The nylon looped pins, with micro-round tops, easily combs and untangles wet hair carefully without stretching and damaging its hair structure.
Made of reforested beech wood, the handle gives this brush the additional advantage of lightness while the natural rubber pad provides the necessary flexibility for the pins. The special shape proportions spread the pressure evenly along the full length, says Ramos, which is good for both the scalp and the hair.
