The pads are selected for the type of hair to be brushed. If we assume that you need to feel the brush on the scalp and the massage effect, we make the following suggestions. We have established the guidelines below based on our customers’ experience over many years; please note that these can be general only.

Long Hair:
In general, the longer the hair the bigger the brush required. However, if a person is more comfortable with a smaller brush, it may be necessary to use a smaller mixture model instead of a larger pure bristle one.
