How to Care For Your Brush

Natural Boar Bristle Brushes


Natural boar bristle brushes have bristles made from the hair of the adult boar.   In its natural state, boar hair is approximately 6 inches in length and tapers from its thickest point at the bulb (root) to thinnest point at the tip.  The quality of the natural bristle used in any brush is determined by two factors; the quality of the actual bristle itself and which "cut" of the bristle is used.   "Cuts" are categorized as "First Cut" (the bulb end), "Second Cut", "Third Cut", etc.  Depending on the bristle length of the brush being manufactured, the manufacturer may be able to yield three or four cuts from the bristle (the tip or "flag" end of the bristle is generally discarded).

The First Cut is generally regarded as the most desirable.  Because the bulb end of the bristle has a rounded tip, it is very gentle to the skin.   And because the bulb end is also the thickest portion of the bristle, it is the most effective for proper brushing.  Remember that in order to be effective, the bristles must be long enough and stiff enough not only to brush the hair but also to contact and gently massage the skin.  Yet they must be gentle enough that the scalp is not injured or irritated.

The "First Cut", while being the most desirable, is also the most expensive.   Imagine that?  Chris Christensen Systems specializes in the highest premium products only and reserves the use of the "First Cut" bristles only.    These 3 brushes are of the highest quality "tufted" natural Boar Bristle "First Cut".  












Why proper brushing is so important:


Other than the primary function of brushing or styling hair, hair brushing serves several other important purposes; cleaning and massaging the skin and stimulating the release of a beneficial oil called sebum.  Sebum is released by the sebaceous gland at the base of the hair follicle as a result of the gentle hair tugging caused by brushing.  Brushing the hair cleans the hair shaft, follicle, and skin by removing trapped scale, dirt, and oils.  Brushing also distributes the Sebum, coating, lubricating and protecting the hair shaft resulting in a healthy glow or sheen and more flexible hair.  Because sebum protects and moisturizes, regular brushing results in hair that is healthier, more manageable and easier to style.  All of Chris Christensen Systems brushes are well balanced, have ground and polished tips with handles that are designed to ensure comfortable grip and use.
