The wild boar bristle brush ꟾ antistatic Hairbrush with wild boar bristles

Shiny hair thanks to a brush with wildlift bristles

The wild boar bristles get your hair a beautiful silky shine and feel pleasantly clean and much softer after brushing. The bristles pick up the natural sebum that is produced by the scalp and release it again in the hair where there are dry spots. The lengths and tips are also well maintained, so that they don't become dry and brittle as quickly. The effect is not only caused by the fat (sebum), but is also achieved by stripping the wild boar bristles. These have similar, microscopic dandruff to human hair that smooth the hair structure when stripping on human hair. You can imagine this process like a polish in the car. This can be applied chemically by glossy lacquer/wax or polished by hand for hours. The result creates a lot better than that with a chemical coating. As the bristles spread along the hair structure over and over again, it is smoothed every time and nourished through the Sebum. Compared to a chemical solution, such as B. would reach a conditioner or shine shampoo, the result in wild boar bristles is much more sustainable, since no shine is "put over" here, but the structure is actually repaired and sustainably maintained/ "polished".

Because of this, the hair also feels wonderfully supple and pleasantly soft. You can also get a wonderful shine by distributing the sebum and the removal of dirt. Börsten from other materials cannot absorb and distribute sebum and the body's own nutrients in this way, which means that they can never deliver the same result as bristles from the wild boar.

The antistatic charging then only happens at the beginning until the brush is "naturalized" and lies after 14 days at the latest.
