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.

    Yaqi Violet Boar Bristle Shave Brush.

    Great looking and well made brush from Yaqi at a decent price. Well shaped and easy to hold handle. Bristles on this brush are much stiffer and courser than any of my other boar bristle brushes. This brush works very well on the harder shaving soaps. You get a great lather on the top usable portion of the knot very quickly and economically. Unfortunately on the softer creams it must be used with caution. With creams there is a tendency ( especially with too much downward pressure) for the lather to end up on the bottom of the knot and on the handle, leaving not enough on the top of the knot for applying to the face. A shallow lathering bowl, light pressure and not working the brush too much, seems to overcome this problem. Also there seems to be a sort of water repellent quality to it noticed when applying it to the face. It can either seem too dry or too wet but you can soon adjust, with regular use, to get it just right. Overall a good brush with a stiffer and firmer knot and I personally give it a 4 star rating.

    Need to see how long it lasts

    I'm a huge fan of Yaqi synthetic brushes, but I really like boar brushes. So, the Yaqi boar - I did some googling before purchase, and I only found one forum thread on these. From 2018, and disturbingly indicated it was a shedder. That's my experience too with mine unfortunately, I was hoping that one was from an early batch with QA issues, but I only bought mine about 2 weeks ago. To break in my natural hair brushes, I do a daily practice lather alongside my actual shaving lather. Once the brush is broken in, I just use it as normal. I've been doing a practice lather with the Violet since I got it. It still has some way to go before being broken in - but my Semogue 830 took a full month to break in and my Semogue Owner's Club took a full 3 months of daily use before it was ready to go - so that doesn't concern me. What does concern me is the amount of hairs that break off each time I do the practice lather. It has probably lost about 2 dozen hairs so far, that's a lot (4 in the practice lather I did about an hour ago). Not every time - there has been once or twice where it hasn't lost any - but most times I have used it, it has shed. So I have quite some concerns about the longevity of the brush. The handle is lovely though, the purple is a really dark purple, almost black. As can be seen with their synthetics, Yaqi does good handles, and the Violet Boar is no exception.

    Incredibly soft and easy to use. Holds a goodly amount of soap too. A big brush to fit big hands. I love it, my primary brush and encouraged my swap from natural hair brushes. Just great
