While the Urban Beard Brush does boast styling benefits, it was originally designed to improve hair texture. The unique structure of the boar bristle carries the skin's natural oils to the end of the hair shaft. By coating each hair strand with a very small amount of the skin's natural oils, a boar bristle brush repairs dry hair and adds lustrous shine. The biggest difference you'll notice when brushing your beard with the Urban Beard Brush will be the texture of your facial hair. Another benefit of using a boar bristle brush is it stimulates blood flow to the hair follicles, which can improve beard growth and nutrient delivery.
Avoid boar bristle brushing wet hair, because this can cause breakage and doesn't distribute the skin's natural oils well.
Use a comb to remove the hair from your boar bristle brush after each use. You may also notice a white powder coating the bristles. This can be product build-up or dandruff.
We recommend cleaning your brush every few uses. To keep it clean, simply wash it with light soapy water and rinse. For quick washes, a simple rinse will work. Towel dry and allow the brush to air-dry overnight.
