Boar Bristle Ambassador Brush Oval 1 Hair Brush by FUCHS. Environmentally Smart. This product uses no endangered wood. A well made hairbrush can last you a lifetime. Hairbrushes with natural boar bristles have been preferred for centuries. Each of our Ambassador Hairbrushes has been carefully hand-crafted to provide years of enjoyable use. Our boar bristles are sheared humanely from farm-raised animals as wool sheared from sheep. Ambassador Hairbrushes are made from non-endangered woods beautifully durable and smooth to the touch. We offer many handle designs to comfortably fit any hand. Boar bristles distribute the natural oils from their origin in the scalp to the hair ends. Besides adding luster brushing with a fine Ambassador Hairbrush protects your hair from the elements which cause drying and splitting. To care for your brush we recommend washing in cool water with the shampoo you use on your hair. Because we use the finest woods we recommend that you do not soak your hairbrush. You can condition the natural boar bristles and your hair by using Natures Alchemy essential oils of Rosemary or Lavender in the following matter: Please a small amount of oil just smaller than a dime in the palm of your hand. Rub your hairbrush bristles in your palm to apply the oil and brush thoroughly from your scalp to the hair ends. You will see the added shine and conditioning effects immediately. This weekly routine will also add a lovely fragrance to your hair.
