Choose And Care For Your Shaving Brush Like A Professional The shaving brush is one piece of shaving equipment that will never become outdated. The feel, smell or shave you can get from using time-tested shaving cream and a good brush can't be replicated with canned shaving cream. Not only is real shaving cream less costly, it is also healthier for your skin and helps you get an improved shave. What to look for and how to correctly care for brushes are two things that most men do not know about. Many unintentionally misuse their brushes, causing them to wear out far earlier than they otherwise would. Before you purchase a new brush, learn how to compare them. Once you have a brush, use and store it properly. With the right brush and good care, you can enjoy the luxury of better shaves. Brush Essentials Badger hair creates the most desirable brushes as it retains water and is noted for being both soft and long-lasting. There are three grades for badger hair brushes depending on their length and softness: pure, best, and super. They are definitely worth the extra cost, as they normally cost more than their lower-quality counterparts, if you can afford the little extra required for their purchase. There are also other excellent options for people who are on tighter budgets. Other brushes that will give you a luxurious shave for a minimal investment include horse, boar and synthetic badger hair. Which of these three lower grade alternatives is best is a subject of high debate. Each has fans that prefer it to the others and all are similar in price. How to Use a Brush Dispersing the shaving cream in a circular motion is the most typical mistake men make with brushes. Without debate, this technique creates lather faster than using the correct side to side sweep. The brushes center bristles take a beating as this constant circular motion causes them to become weak after a while. Take the extra few seconds to lather your face by brushing from side to side; it is really worth the effort. Beyond the extra exfoliation you obtain when you invest a little longer lathering your face, your hairs will stick out a little straighter. As well as an increased brush life, you may also notice that you get a closer, better shave each time. Brush Storage Brushes stand firmly on their handles with the bristles pointing upwards so that you can set them down during a shave without making a mess. Brushes, while they can be set this way, are not intended to be stored this way. When a brush is left to dry on its handle, the bottom of the bristles has a tendency to constantly remain damp until they start rotting or growing mold. After this happens, your brush won't work as well as it did when it was new. Eventually the bristles are going to fall out. Poor care will lead to deterioration; don't let this happen. Brush stands are low-cost and protect your investment by enabling the brush to dry properly between shaves. Brush Rewards
