People use boar bristle brushes for their hair because of the advantages they bring over nylon brushes. Boar bristle has been used for brushes for centuries, and are still popular for their conditioning qualities. The unique structure of the boar bristle contains sebum, which naturally conditions hair and reduces frizz while you brush. Many users report that using boar bristle brushes reduces their need for styling products. Avoid using the boar bristle brush on wet hair – it’s best used to style and brush dry hair. When brushing, start from root to tip and make sure to brush the scalp as well for the most benefit.
