So, what is boar bristles?

Boar bristles are natural hair fibers derived from the backs of wild boars. These bristles are known for their unique ability to distribute oils evenly throughout the hair, making them a popular choice for use in hairbrushes. The strong yet flexible nature of the bristles allows for effective detangling and smoothing, while also stimulating the scalp for healthy hair growth. Boar bristles are also commonly used in the culinary world as a basting brush for meats and as a tool for cleaning and maintaining cast iron cookware. Because of their natural origin and durability, boar bristles are a sustainable and eco-friendly choice for a variety of applications.
