  • Sale
  • Regular price $ 6.00


A handheld brush, ideal for brushing beards. 

This brush is made from natural boar bristles with a wooden base. Boar bristles are the perfect brush for distributing natural oils throughout hair. The wooden base of the comb reduces static. 

We highly recommend using a boar bristle brush after applying oil and/or balm to your beard. This will help to evenly distribute the product throughout your beard.

The soft bristles on this brush make it so easy to use it'll feel luxurious. Like some professional spa people going to town on your beard. 

Tips for Using Boar Bristle Brushes 

How to Use a Boar Brush on Your Beard

Boar bristle brushes are designed to distribute oil through your hair. They have long been used on head hair to distribute natural oils and keep hair healthy. Beard hair is notoriously dry, and has little in the way of natural oils to spare; that's why you use beard oil, to restore those oils and moisturize your beard and the skin underneath. And that's also where your boar bristle brush comes in.

When using beard oil, drop the desired amount into the palm of your hand (see the Beard Oil page for further insturctions and an idea of about how much to use). Rub your hands together, then combs your fingers through your beard. Be sure to pay special attention to the skin under your beard.

When most of the oil is in your beard hair (you'll have some residue on your hands - just wipe them on a towel), get your brush. Place a hand under your beard, with your fingers curled almost like you're choking yourself. This will prevent your beard from getting too flat when you brush it down. 

Brush your beard hair with long, even strokes. The bristles will drag the oil through your beard hair and help to distribute it.

Brushing with a boar bristle brush is a great way to add volume to your beard, and makes it look much healthier.

Tips

  • If you find that you need more control, consider a brush with a handle.
  • There's nothing wrong with flipping the military style brush vertical instead of horizontal; this can help with tighter areas like the center of your chin.
  • Don't forget to use the brush on your mustache as well. This is best done prior to waxing, so make mustache wax the last part of your beard care routine.
  • Clean your brush after use by either plucking out the hairs individually or running the palm of your hand over the bristles to shake loose any hairs that were caught by the brush. If you don't the next time you brush you are probably going to put some of those dead beard hairs back into your beard!
