Boar Bristles

All hairbrushes are not created equal, at least, according to fans of the boar bristle hairbrush. Boar bristle is scaly in texture, making it effective for cleaning the hair shaft, follicle, and scalp, and for distributing oil along the hair shaft. Boars needn't be harmed for their bristles, just sheared like sheep. Boar bristle brushes can be found in fine salons and online for around $35.
