I don't believe we have met before, so I'll wish you a warm welcome! It's good to have you with us! Please, tell us more about yourself and your hair, like your hair type, hair goals...
As for your question, it would be best if you hair typed yourself first. It's hard to give advice ad hoc, without knowing your hair type. That way, we can at least pinpoint the things your hair could like. Although, in the end, it boils down to trial and error and figuring out what your hair likes the most.
If you are after a brush that will distribute your natural oils, then you might want to look into a boar bristle brush. But if a BBB proves to be too abrasive for your hair, you can try out other types of natural brushes. I've seen baby brushes made out of goat's hair, which are quite soft and, as they are adapted to children's hair, surely must be safe even for more fragile hair.
You probably already know that you should avoid brushes with metal bristles and balls on the tips. They are evil. I haven't tried brushes with wooden bristles, so I don't know if they are damaging. But perhaps I should have mentioned that detangling is a job best left to either your fingers, or a wide-tooth comb. That way you will have much less breakage, and you will be able to grow your hair to great lengths.
