Designs come in different shapes, oval, rectangular or with handles.

Works great at helping keep dandruff at a min, makes hair feel silky smooth, but can be impeded by the thickness of hair. The longer the hair the harder it is to get a good pull through it. The bristles are soft which makes it pleasantly gentle but not quite a good scalp brush. Amazing product. Large surface with a solid design.

Kent's Ebony Wood White Bristle Hairbrush

Remove loose hair from the tufts regularly by inserting the cleaner tool (LPC2) or a comb on the side and remove the old hair. Sometimes, only the bristles are placed in the water using warm mild soapy water, trying not to submerge the wood, as this damages the wood. Never use harsh detergents or ammonia. Finally, wipe with a clean towel gently dry. Allow the bristles to dry naturally to face down and away from the sun, radiators, hairdryers or any artificial heat.

Military Wood White Bristle Hairbrush by Kent

The base of wood was not intended to be repeatedly wet, as wetness expands wood and dryness contracts it. This can definitely lead to cracks if repeated too often. By inserting a cleaner tool (LPC2) or a comb on the side of the brush, remove loose hair from the tufts regularly and remove the old hair.

Be careful not to scrape the cleaner over the top of the tufts, as this can cause damage to the pure bristle in particular. Wash with warm soapy water from time to time, but never use ammonia or harsh detergents. Submerge only the tufts, not the back of the brush, and clean the brushes. Rinse in cold water and shake excess water and wipe using a clean towel. Allow the bristles to dry naturally away from the sun, hairdryers and artificial heat.
