these hairbrushes, made in germany, use the same traditional materials that have been used for centuries -- wood and natural boar bristles. each brush is hand-crafted. the wood is grown in a sustainable manner and is smooth to the touch. the boar boar bristles distribute natural oils from their origin in the scalp to the hair ends, adding luster to your hair and protecting against drying and splitting. the boar bristles are sheared humanely from farm-raised animals, similar to how wool is sheared from sheep.
care instructions: wash your bristles in cold water using your own shampoo but do not soak the hair brush. you can condition the bristles using a small amount of essential oils (lavender or rosemary is recommended), which are also good for your hair
