|Is The Vegan Tampico Fiber Hair Brush By Redecker Vegan?|
The “TAMPICO FIBER HAIRBRUSH” is not a boar brush. Why I like the vegan “TAMPICO FIBER HAIRBRUSH”:
The “TAMPICO FIBER HAIRBRUSH” with Oiled Beechwood Handle offers an all-natural solution to hair care. Made from tampico fiber, plant-based bristles condition the scalp while smoothing and detangling knots. Stiff bristles retain their shape and withstand high heat temperatures, perfect for brushing and blow drying hair. The handle of the brush is made from all-natural oiled beechwood, which is resistant to wear and tear and durable enough for regular use. For maintenance, rinse with lukewarm water and towel blot to remove excess moisture. Air dry with bristles facing down to prevent damage to wooden handle. Made in Germany.
- Brush is 8 “long and made without any animal products; cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. the long handle enables you to reach your entire back for washing. Unlike other brushes with shorter handles.
- Great for daily brushing; the plant bristles naturally condition the scalp and detangle the knots.
- Made of all-natural tampico fiber, stiff plant fiber bristles are perfect for hair brushing; bristles have a high degree of shape retention and withstand high heat when blowing hair drying.
- Handle made of natural oiled beech wood, highly resistant to wear and tear; ages gracefully and long enough for daily use.
- In my experience the bristles are not stiff. They are soft to medium. This feature translates to a great wash brush for the shower or bath.
I do recommend the brush due to it’s high quality. According to Stacey our in-house product analyst, “Just be aware the bristles are on the soft side.”

According to GRUPO INTEROCEANICO CALA is a Mexican producer and exporter of Tampico Fiber, “Tampico Fiber is made from a plant unique to the semi-desertic areas of northern Mexico , the Agave Lechugilla. It has been exported for centuries all over the world to manufacture cords, ropes and stricks or to be used as a filler in the brush making industries for brushes, scrubbers and brooms for industrial and personal use. The natural color of the Fiber is creamy white, but it is often dyed other colors. Tampico Fiber has great liquid holding and release properties – it will absorb 65% more water than plastic fillings. It has a unique surface roughness due to crystals of calcium oxalate embedded in the surface. There is really no plastic substitute for Tampico Fiber. The fiber is unsurpassed in most general sweeping applications, and in all applications requiring liquid retention, scrubbing and surface finishing.“

Is this a NOT 100% boar bristle brush. There are NO plastic bristles. Bristles are made from all-natural tampico plant fiber. Handle is made from all-natural oiled beech-wood which is highly resistant to wear and tear. My experience is that Tampico fiber bristles is a soft to medium-soft bristle. It’s not a firm bristle. It keeps it’s shape and wears very well. More about fiber processing.
