THE BENEFITS OF BOAR BRISTLES
4 Reasons These Brushes Will Change Your Client’s Hair!
Since the 1800’s, boar bristle brushes have been used to create shiny, healthy hair without styling products. Boar bristle brushes were also a ubiquitous item on dressing tables in the first half of the 20th century. Thanks to a boar bristle brush, Lauren Bacall, Rita Hayworth, Katherine Hepburn and other Silver Screen Sirens were able to obtain their glamorous wavy hairstyles.
- Boar bristle brushing naturally conditions hair. The unique structure of the boar bristle carries sebum – the oil produced by the scalp – from the scalp to the end of the hair shaft. By coating each hair strand with a very, very small amount of sebum, a boar bristle brush repairs dry hair and adds lustrous shine.
- Boar bristle brushing improves hair texture. If you have straight hair, it will add bouncy volume and shine. If you have curly hair, it will condition and slightly loosen the curl.
- Boar bristle brushing helps reduce frizz. Sebum is the original and most effective anti-frizz serum. By using a boar bristle brush to lubricate each hair strand with sebum, you’ll notice a significant decrease in frizz!
- Boar bristle brushing stimulates scalp. A boar bristle brush feels divine on the scalp and stimulates blood flow to the hair follicles, which can improve hair growth.
Often times boar bristle brushes can be a bit stiff during the “breaking in” phase. To help break them in, soften the bristles, and take away the tug by adding 3 to 5 drops of REDAVID Orchid Oil Treatment Ultra Nourishing Serum to the bristles.
