About this item
The PW1 hairbrush is a full size brush that is 2″ wide (brush area) x 8.75″ (total length) and is pure 1st cut wild boar bristles (most firm part of the bristle) from a special type of wild boar raised in the high mountains of the Tibet Plateau. Bristles are approximately 5/8″ long. Crafted in Germany’s Black Forest at a family shop that’s been making high quality hairbrushes for over 100 years.
Bristles are precision cut for staggered lengths (effilation) approximately 5/8” long, which allows the brush to grip hair down to the scalp (fine to medium thickness hair only). Precision spacing between the bristles allow brush to penetrate through fine hair types. PLEASE NOTE: the PW1 is recommended for those with thin short hair, as the bristles are softer and more flexible than the Calcutta bristles, and might not penetrate through thicker hair.
The handle of this beautifully crafted brush is made of oiled pear wood, grown locally in Germany. The wood has an engraved image of the butterfly — a symbol of the gentle and transforming powers of nature.
Pure boar bristles naturally condition hair, improve hair texture, and reduce the need for styling products. NOTE: Pure boar bristles are similar in structure to human hair, so like human hair, boar bristles are not anti-static. If static control is needed, smooth hair with palm of hand after each brush stroke, or spritz or apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner into hair before boar bristle brushing.
