The nylon bristles are longer than the boar bristles, making it easier for the bristle tuft to penetrate the hairline. The shorter boar bristles act as a hold for better styling results. The larger Luxury Cushion Brush is ideal for use at home or the office. The smaller version is an ideal travel size. The Spornette LX brushes are comparable to very expensive European brushes.
The benefits of boar bristle brushes go beyond simply cleaning your hair, it also conditions. Scalp stimulation from both hair brushing and scalp massaging help distribute your natural sebum evenly through the hair. This helps your overall hair health and keeps those shiny locks resilient and strong. In addition, as your hair is coated with sebum you’ll find moisture is restored, and the hair is generally more sheen, smooth, and manageable.
Brushing with a boar bristle brush stimulates the capillaries, increasing blood circulation in the scalp and transporting oxygen and nutrients to the hair stem, root and bulb. It also helps to balance the sebaceous glands by stimulating them and allowing them to breath while retaining natural oils. Sebaceous gland imbalance is often to blame for hair loss, as overproduction and underproduction of sebum cause weakening and undernourishment of the scalp.
