Boar Bristle Brushes for Shiny, Smooth Hair

You’ll never want to use another brush again.

Sick of having hair that frizzes at the ends, but flattens at the roots? Look to a boar bristle brush, which glides through stubborn tangles and evenly distributes your scalp’s natural oils. Not only does this smooth your hair, it also keeps oil and product from building up at the scalp (which means you may be able to prolong wash day a little longer).

All natural boar bristles are great at massaging the scalp, detangling knots and distributing healthy oils through hair strands. Because of how soft and flexible the bristles are, they work best on detangling fine hair.

The 100% boar bristles on this brush are long, thin and flexible, which means they won’t snag or create unnecessary tension on fine or thinning hair types. Give yourself a scalp massage with the long bristles by gently moving the brush in circular motions.
