The Large Mixed Pure Boar Bristle & Nylon Brush is 9" by 3-1/8" and features nine rings of pure boar bristles and nylon tufts 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.
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.
Most Similar to human hair, boar bristles strengthen and add natural shine to your hair. Our quality brushes feature humanely harvested European boar bristles. We recommend both proper brushing and massaging for a healthy scalp and hair. Daily brushing increases the blood flow and awakens the scalp to produce its natural sebaceous oils. These will hydrate both the scalp and hair, just as they were supposed to. The Extra Large, (XL) brushes are about the same size as an average brush. The Small, (travel) brushes are made to fit in your purse/bag or are for children. The small brushes are not designed for daily use as they do not provide the leverage needed.
The Pure Boar Bristle Brushes are wonderful for hair that is thinner or shorter as the bristles are very soft and will still be able to reach through to the scalp.
The Mixed Pure Boar Bristle and Nylon Brush is designed for hair that is thicker. The nylon bristles guide the boar bristles through the hair, allowing for the boar bristles to spread the oils effectively.
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.
How to Clean Your Brush
Clean your 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.
