Looking after your "Natural Hair" Shaving Brush is simple. Here are the main points to keep in mind.
1. Do not soak your Shaving Brush in water that is too hot. Doing so will damage the hair and it's natural oiliness. As a general rule the water shouldn't be any hotter than a hot bath and remember it is also perfectly practical to soak in cold water also.
2. When bowl lathering do not use brute force, this will damage the hair tips over time.
3. Do not over soak your Shaving Brush for longer than 10 minutes.
4. After each use, the Shaving Brush needs to be naturally dried. Ideally in a well ventilated, low humidity setting. Do not use a hair dryer! Hanging the brush upside down is ideal.
5. Handle Care: If your Shaving Brush handle is wooden, or contains wood, the wood should be maintained with a wood wax. Ebonite handles should not be exposed to scalding hot water and it is advisable to store them away from direct sunlight. Ebonite can easily be re-polished to restore its sheen should it become duller over time.
