Proper Shaving Brush Selection And Maintenance The shaving brush is one item of shaving equipment which will never become outdated. The feel, smell or shave you will 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 more affordable, it is also healthier for your skin and helps you get an even better shave. What to look for and how to properly care for brushes are two things that a lot of men do not know about. Many unconsciously misuse their brushes, causing them to wear out far faster than they otherwise would. Before you get a new brush, learn how to evaluate them. Once you have a brush, use and store it correctly. With the right brush and good care, you can enjoy the luxury of better shaves. Brush Essentials Given it retains water and is known for being both soft and long-lasting, badger hair creates the most desirable brushes. There are three grades for badger hair brushes dependent on their length and softness: pure, best, and super. These brushes generally cost more than their lower-quality counterparts, but they are really worth the price if your budget provides for the purchase. There are also other excellent options for those that are on tighter budgets. Horse, boar, and artificial badger hair all produce great brushes that will offer you a luxurious shave for a small investment. It is highly arguable which of these three lower grade alternatives is best. Their prices are similar and each has fans who favor it to the others. Brush Utilization The most typical mistake men make with brushes is to spread the cream using circular motions. Without debate, this approach creates lather faster than utilizing the correct side to side sweep. The brushes center bristles take a beating as this constant circular motion causes them to become weak with time. Do yourself a favor and take the added seconds to lather your face by brushing from side to side. The fact that you invest just a little longer lathering your face also improves the exfoliation you receive as well as making your hairs stick out a little straighter. Together with an increased brush life, you may also notice that you get a closer, better shave each time. Brush Storage To enable you to easily set them down during a shave without making a mess, brushes stand securely on their handles with the bristles pointing upward. Brushes, while they can be set in this manner, are not intended to be stored this way. When a brush is left to dry on its handle, the foot of the bristles has a tendency to constantly remain damp until they begin rotting or growing mold. Once this occurs, your brush will never work as well as it did when it was new. The bristles will fall out eventually. Don’t let your nice brush deteriorate because of poor care. Protect your investment with a brush stand; this low-cost investment enables the brush to dry properly between shaves. Brush Benefits An investment in a shaving brush is an investment in the look and feel of your shaves. You're in for a treat the very first time you lather up if you have never used real shaving cream. The rich BullGoose Shaving Supplies
