Before we deal with the characteristics of good wild boar bristles, it is important to find out whether the brush is even real wild boar bristles?
In Germany one can assume that if a product “100% wild boar bristles” marked is, it is also real wild boar bristles.
For natural hair brushes that are marked with “… with wild boar bristles”, it does not mean that these are exclusively wild boar bristles. Other bristles such as goat hair or nylon bristles are often included here.

How do you recognize good wild boar bristles?
The best and high quality part of the wild boar bristles comes from the “first cut”. It is the lower part of the bristles. In this part, the bristle hair is still very strong and is therefore best suited for use in a hairbrush.
To determine whether it is the first cut, you simply check the tips of the bristles. If you first cut bristles, you would have to see a white-brown follicle approach of the bristles.
The first cut is the first third of the wild boar bristles and thus also the strongest part. The remaining parts of the bristles are softer and are used for cheaper brushes or other areas of application.
Equipped with this information, only the question arises Which wild boar bristle brush fits my hair type.
