Your most frequently asked questions regarding Boar Bristle Brushes
Du kannst die Bürste mit einem normalen, oder dem Leo Prinz Kamm reinigen. Streiche damit einfach mehrmals durch das Borstenfeld und streiche Haare und Fusseln heraus.
Für eine Intensivreinigung kannst du die Bürste alle vier bis sechs Wochen mit einer Naturhandseife oder einem Naturkosmetik Shampoo unter fließendem Wasser ausspülen.
Achte darauf, die Bürste nachher mit den Borsten nach unten aufzustellen, sodass das Wasser nach unten abtropfen kann und nicht in der Bürste gefangen bleibt. Eine detaillierte Anleitung findest du in unserem Blog Post.
Our boar bristles come mainly from wild boars from the Indian and Chinese high mountains.
Just as other animals change their fur throughout the year, wild boars shed their bristles between seasons. The shed bristles are then collected and selected for brush processing, cleaned and further processed. Other bristles are collected as a by-product of meat processing. In the process, the animals are not killed for their bristles.
In order to comply with EU regulations on the import of products of animal origin, the bristles are cleaned further down the line and processed accordingly.
We always work with our suppliers to make the procurement process even more transparent.
Depending on the time of day we receive your order, we will send your package out the same day or the next day. The package will then be with you in 3 to 5 working days.
Expressordersusually reach you after two days. Due to COVID-19, there may be occasional delays with our shipping service providers.
Occasionally, bristles may break or fall out. As the boar bristles are inserted into the brush body completely naturally and without chemical adhesives, it can occasionally happen that bristles fall out. This is completely normal and does not mean that the brush has lost all its bristles. If your brush loses an unusually large number of bristles, please contact us. We will then find a solution together.
Some people are afraid that brushing will cause them to lose their beautiful curls, as it straightens the hair.
Basically, split ends, dry hair and small injuries in the hair structure strengthen the curls. When brushing with the Natural Hair Brush, these areas are repaired and nourished. This can mean that you have to twist your hair again after brushing to revive the curl structure.
But at the end of the day, you are definitely doing your hair a favour and will definitely get more beautiful hair after regular use.
Our Natural Hair Brush is made exclusively of materials that are naturally antistatic. Why can static build-up still occur?
In most cases, this has to do with your hair care products. This can be a silicone-based shampoo or conditioner, or styling products such as hairspray.
When brushing, the synthetic particles are rubbed along between the bristles and the hair, which then leads to a static charge. In most cases, the connection harmonises after a few days.
We therefore always recommend the use of natural cosmetic products without silicones. If you want to speed up the process, it can help to wash the brush with your natural cosmetic shampoo or soap.
To do this, please follow our instructions for cleaning the brush as described in our Blog post.
Boar bristles care for and repair the hair structure in a unique way. They have a microscopically fine scale structure and are therefore the only bristle material capable of absorbing excess grease (sebum) and releasing it in dry areas of the hair. With regular brushing, they seal the hair structure and can thus repair and prevent brittle hair (split ends).
