A beard brush is certainly something you don’t see in most bathrooms. Lads, if you think you’re being smart by pinching the girlfriend's hair brush, you’re not. The hair on a lady's head is a lot different than the coarse hairs that make up a beard. Treat your beard as it deserves to be treated and get it a quality beard brush today.
If you’ve just started growing a beard, you may feel overwhelmed with the number of products people tell you to buy to get the beard of your dreams.
Each man’s beard is different however and when it comes to beard brushes, they may or may not work for you. The general consensus is to try both a beard brush and beard comb to start with before choosing which one (or both) gives the best result for your beard.
Boar's hair beard brushes retain oils
Boar's hair beard brushes are the best quality beard brushes you can buy. The boar hair helps stimulate natural oil production and disperses the oils throughout the entire length of the hairs.
A brush gives your beard a fuller look
The general rule: a comb is for styling and a brush is too give the beard a fuller, thicker look. Brushing with a beard brush helps the hairs lay in one direction as well as ensuring full coverage of oils throughout the beard.
Boar's hair bristles differ in length
The stock standard brush from a shelf has plastic bristles of the same length. The natural boar's hair brushes have bristles of different lengths, this means it helps spread oil right throughout the beard evenly with no spots missing.
Beard brushes for vegans
In the beard world, boar bristle beard brushes are usually considered as the only realistic choice. This won’t work if you’re a vegan however. Synthetic brushes get given a hard time, but there are several high quality synthetic brushes available. They’re just a little bit harder to find.
Tips for brushing your beard
Brushing shouldn’t be done without any thought. With a bit of thought, your beard will be soft, thick and very good looking post brushing if you remember these tips.
Do not brush a wet beard. When you brush your beard immediately after a shower, expect to lose beard hair. Find a routine where you can shower then brush your beard after you have applied oil and/or balm to prevent beard hair loss and the tendency for wet hair to mat together.
Brush after applying oils. The biggest benefit of brushing with boar hair bristles is the ability to maintain the oil content of the beard. Brushing after you apply oils will maximise both the health benefits and softness of your beard.
Keep your beard brush clean. The natural hairs of a boar brush will provide a smooth beard for years, but for best results, clean your brush regularly. As a bonus, it’ll make the girlfriend feel bad for her brush being full of hair too.
Experiment with horse hair bristles. Horse hair beard brushes have started making a comeback in the beard brushing game. They do a good job at spreading the oil throughout the beard but it is yet to overtake boar hair in favouritism.
