The Travel Size Mixed Pure Boar Bristle & Nylon Brush Travel Size is 7" by 2" and features several rings of pure boar bristles to stimulate your scalp and spread sebaceous oils from the root of the hair to the tip. This brush features a pneumatic rubber cushion that allows for effective and efficient brushing as well as a hand polished plastic handle for ergonomic comfort.
The Travel Size Mixed Pure Boar Bristle & Nylon Brush - Travel Size is the perfect size for travel as well as brushing on the go. This brush is perfect for stronger scalp types as well as those with thick hair. We recommend detangling before brushing in order to further reduce breakage.
Proper brushing and massaging are two of the most important elements in the maintenance
and rejuvenation of your hair. They are second only to proper diet and the use of holistic
shampoos, conditioners, and styling products.
Brushing your Hair
Daily brushing of the hair and scalp is far more cleansing than any synthetic shampoo. Brushing
eliminates waste matter — such as deposits of uric acid, catarrh and other acidic debris — that
build up to become encrusted on the scalp.
Brushing also stimulates capillaries, increasing blood circulation and transport of oxygen-rich
nutrients to the hair stem, root and bulb. Most importantly, daily brushing stimulates hormone
and oil-producing sebaceous glands. This keeps the pores of the hair and scalp open, allowing
them to breathe and retain their natural oils.
How to Brush Your Hair
Only brush dry hair with a natural bristle brush. Stand straight, then bend over from the waist as
far as possible, allowing blood to flow freely into your scalp. Firmly grasp your brush handle,
moving through the areas of the nape, sides, and crown all the way to your front facial hairline.
Brush in slow, easy strokes for 3-5 minutes. Then straighten slowly. Your brush is now filled with
sebaceous oil. Repeat the same procedure standing upright.
For those with curly, kinky, or coily hair, brushing is still beneficial! Do not confuse brushing with
detangling or styling — this is purely a form of dry shampooing and maintenance. It is
important to detangle beforehand. We suggest brushing your hair before bed, then putting it
into protective styling (loose braids, two strand twists, etc.) to minimize the temporary poofiness.

What Brush to Use
Always use a natural bristle brush. Boar bristles are the preferred material, because they are
almost identical to human hair in texture. This allows the sebum to be gathered and
redistributed. The Pure Boar Bristle Brush is very soft and ideal for thin, weak, or brittle hair. The
Mixed Pure Boar Bristle & Nylon Brush has a single nylon fiber that penetrates normal to thick
hair and helps with detangling.
How to Clean Your Brush
Clean your Boar Bristle Brush as needed whenever dust, hair, debris and oils accumulate.
Especially during the hair detoxification process. You may find that you need to clean your brush
more frequently (as little as two or three days).
Gently loosen strands of hair with a comb, careful not to pull out any of the brush bristles. Either
dip the bristles only, not the hairbrush or handle, into warm soapy water and gently work the
bristles back and forth to cleanse; or place a few drops of MM shampoo onto the brush spread
with a little water and then rinse under running warm water. Make sure to hold the hairbrush
with the head pointing downwards so no water can enter the air hole at the end. Rinse
thoroughly and shake to remove moisture. Let air dry with bristles facing down.
When to Brush
For optimal maintenance and rejuvenation, brush your hair three times a day: morning, late
afternoon, and before bed. For those with curly hair, you can reduce hair brushing to once a
week or more, but moving vital sebum throughout your hair strand will improve your curls'
strength and shine.
For optimum maintenance and rejuvenation of your hair, it is vitally important to do consistent
brushing three times a day: morning, late afternoon and bedtime. As you begin, sit quietly for a
few minutes, breathing slowly and deeply through your nose. Calming your body (especially
shoulders, forehead and scalp), releases any flow-blocking tension. Make brushing a regular
habit. Nightly use of your brush is especially critical. By coating your hair with additional sebum,
you set in motion new, healthy growth while you experience the renewal of sound sleep.
Massaging your Scalp
Scalp massage stimulates sebaceous glands and promotes circulation in the scalp. Plastic,
metal, and artificial materials are potentially harmful to the scalp as they can scratch and
irritate, so use our all natural rubber Scalp Massager & Invigorator. This massager is firm
enough to give your scalp a deep massage, but gentle enough not to damage your sensitive
skin or pull out hair.
How and When to Massage
Massage your scalp 1-3 times a day, around the same time you brush your hair. You can also
massage your scalp in the shower with our shampoos, to get a deeper, more nourishing
treatment. For those with short hair, massage vigorously in a circular motion all over your head
for 3 to 5 minutes, or until your scalp is tingling. For those with long hair, flatten your hair with
one hand, place the massager straight down onto one area with the other hand, hold it with
your palm and do short circular motions. Pull straight out to prevent tangling.
Words from the Hair Shaman
Brushing is a form of dry-shampooing. Stimulation from the bristles distributes sebum
throughout hair and scalp, making both stronger and more resilient. It's also an excellent
natural conditioner because coating hair with sebum as you brush restores moisture, giving hair
added sheen, smoothed texture and greater manageability.
