Why You Need to Start Brushing Your Beard: 4 Surprising Benefits

The best beard brush can redirect stubborn hairs into the direction you're looking for and straighten wirey hairs into smooth hairs.

But are you aware of all the surprising benefits that occur when brushing with a high quality brush, like our Boar's Beard Brush?

The right brush for you can make a huge difference in your beard's appearance and health by providing a cleaner, moisturized, detangled, and just plain better beard. You'll instantly notice an improvement after adding this tool to your beard care routine. It's one of the essentials for having an awesome, healthy, and attractive beard. 

Why Boars' Bristles are Superior:

Boar bristle brushes have hundreds of bristles at all different lengths working to target every level of facial hair. The bristles are so compactly close together making it nearly impossible to neglect grooming even the smallest of hairs. 

You likely have a synthetic hair brush sitting somewhere in your house right now. It's widely accepted in the bearded community (and women's cosmetic industry) to stick to natural materials and avoid these synthetic materials like nylon bristles and plastic combs. 

These nylon brushes can cause static, irritation, and damage while a Boars Bristle Brush is far more gentle on your skin and hair.

The boar's hair is undoubtedly the highest performing material for any type of hair, which is why this material is so widely used in the cosmetic and grooming industry. Examining the texture of boar's hair, you'll notice how similar it is to human hair which is why it gives you the least amount of irritation. 

Now that you understand the foundations, let's explore the benefits!

4 Surprising Benefits of Brushing:

1. Less dryness and itchiness. More moisture and shine.

Dryness, beardruff (beard dandruff) and itchyness are some of the biggest annoyances when first growing your beard out. 

You tend to strip away a lot of healthy, natural oils whenever you wash up and use of scalp shampoos, harsh chemicals, and soaps can make this problem even worse. By using a superior boar brush instead of a plastic one, it'll help bring those follicles back to life.

The best advantage of using a Boar's Bristle Brush is its natural ability of collecting oils (and beard oils) to equally distribute throughout your follicles. The bristles absorb the human sebaceous oils, that are often clogged deep in your pores, and then redistributes these oils from the base to the top of each hair strand. 

By redistributing these oils evenly on the hair and beard strands, your hairs boast a natural shine without it feeling loaded and weighted down. This also adds a huge aid in protecting your hairs from becoming brittle and damaged. But wait, there's more. Your beard becomes ultra soft. Ask any huge bearded guy and he'll tell you that the brush is a game-changer. 

2. Less breakage, frizz, and split-ends.

Brushing your beard can drastically help the health of your beard in numerous ways, one being the prevention of breakage, frizz and split-ends. Getting rid of these problems means you won't have to manually trim those wirey hairs as often. The beard will look more natural and even.

The extra coating of your beard with natural sebaceous oils and nourishing beard oils can protect the follicles from outside damage. 

3. Natural Exfoliation.

Exfoliation is the act of removing dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. These resting dead particles clog up the pores and can lead to folliculitis and acne. 

The stiff texture of Boars' Bristles will help get in the roots of each follicle to exfoliate and provide a natural solution for cleaning up your skin and beard. Exfoliation not only helps with many skin problems, it also stimulates blood circulation, which in turn can promote healthier and fuller beard growth.

4. May Promote Healthier & Faster Beard Growth

The act of brushing is essentially massaging the face, which in turn improves blood circulation to your hair follicles. Blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients are some of the most important factors when it comes to healthy hair and hair growth. On a similar note, one of the mechanisms of actions in the effectiveness of Minoxidil 5% (Rogaine) is the promotion of, you guessed it, blood flow. 

More blood flow to your hair follicles is one of the best things you can do for the health and development of your beard. However, you obviously won't achieve a huge beard just from brushing regularly. It's just general good practice to promote the massive amount of blood in the face, which is often neglected.
