Please feel free to leave comments on some of the good advise and techniques you know of and use to promote healthy hair.

Advantages of Boar Bristles Brushes

Some of the biggest advantages of a boar brush is that it doesn't harm your hair when brushing. The brush doesn't break your hair, it doesn't promote splits and breaks. Now on the other hand it will not magically mend your broken hair either. The natural boar bristles gently massage your scalp to improve blood flow, promote hair growth and help your hair grow thicker and longer.

Did you know that boar bristles is an outstanding hair brush natural material that has been used for centuries in various cultures across the globe. This type of brush has a range of qualities that when used by brushing makes your hair clean, look great. Boar brushes do amazing things to your hair that no shampoo or other products can accomplish.

Here are some benefits you should know. Boar bristles spreads your scalp's natural oils. Your natural oils are called sebum. Sebum is your hair's natural way of conditioning your hair and adding shine. Also by brushing your hair does not get dirty or greasy. As you well know the brushing action removes dirt and spreads the sebum from the roots to the tips of your hair. The brushing action provides the necessary condition treatment for your hair naturally. This gives hair strength, suppleness, and of course a nice healthy shine that last all day.

Although some folks use boar bristle brushes to detangle hair, there are much better options. I do not recommend using a boar brush to detangle your hair. And I do not recommend using a boar brush on wet hair. Use a boar brush on dry hair only.

Many high quality boar brushes are hand made or mostly hand made. For these brushes attention to detail and quality is important. A good high quality boar brush with proper care can last a lifetime. So my advise is don't be afraid to spend some money on a good one. in the end you will have wish you did.

  1. Naturally condition your hair. The natural oils from your scalp ensures your hair stays protected.
  2. By brushing you are actually cleaning your hair by removing debris.
  3. By brushing you are also detangling your hair.
  4. Brushing also stimulates blood flow in your scalp ans thus in return helps hair grow and be healthy.
  5. Brushing conditions your hair so that your hair will be less frizzy.
  6. By frequent brushing you may fine yourself not needing to shampoo as much. You might not need to use as much shampoo or shampoo less frequently.

How Boar Bristles Are Acquired

As you well know boar is often used as a food source and typically their fur is discard. The food processor does not use the fur or hair. However there are many brush manufactures that link up with food processors and obtain the fur. So instead of throwing away the fur it's made into boar bristle brushes.

In addition, boar is often hunted and their fur is thrown away. Again in there are boar brush manufactures that will accept the fur and use it instead of it being discarded. It's important note that most boar brush manufactures do not hunt boar just to make brushes. And in most cases boar is hunted to keep populations under control and keep agriculture at sustainable levels.

What Are Boar Bristles

Boar bristles closely resemble human hair. Did you know that boar bristles and human hair are made up of a protein called keratin. Human hair and boar hair are not totally smooth. They are actually like shingles on a roof. Each hair has an outer shell of cuticles that overlap each other. It's these cuticles that grab the natural oils from the root of your hair and spread them to the tips where needed every time you brush. This action is what makes your hair shiny and softer. You can use a nylon brush but nylon is smooth and does not have the same ability to spread your natural oils like a boar bristles do.

What Others Are Saying About Boar Brushes

"I just started using boar hair brushes a few times in my life, and so far I like it. The bristles can remove oils from my scalp so that it helps to condition my hair when brushing."

"I purchased this because the 100% boar bristle was supposed to be perfect for thin hair. It feels good and smooth on my head while using" 

"I love using this, particularly on second or third day hair, where it's a bit greasy. If I brush from the roots to the end of this and then fluff my hair afterwards, it disperses the oils and makes them look new and clean."

"It's so great to feel like you're not pulling your hair when you're brushing it! Those plastic, ball-tipped brushes on the market all over the country, just rip my hair out of my head!"

"This is my first boar bristle brush. I have waist long hair that is medium thickness. I'm experimenting with water only hair washing. To help distribute the sebum from my scalp to the rest of my hair." 

How to Properly Use a Boar Bristle Brush

Always brush your hair when it's dry. never brush your hair while it's wet due to you can easily rip and or tear your hair. This is a good way to cause split ends. You hair is at it's weakest point while wet. When you brush the bristles cause friction and thus grabs your hair and stretches it to the point where it might snap. For great results try brushing your hair at least twice a day, once in the morning and once before bedtime.  Click here - YouTube on using a boar brush. Also another video on using a boar brush.
